modifying T-twist lock barrel to center feed

got a armson stealth barrel and am wanting to get a centerfeed twistlock body. i figured i could just tap a detent for the pin to lock in at the center of the T-channel so it wont turn left or right during play. will this work ? anybody have any luck doing this ? figured it would be cheaper to do this then buy a ule body and a new a/c threaded stealth barrel.

From what I have head that will work. You'd just have to make sure that it is lined up right. I would worry that you may have to take it apart to get the barrel out it you drill too deep.
I do also have a centerfeed twist-lock that I'm not using

also what you could do is the screw that goes threw the grip frame and threw the rail and screws into the body, just get (a little bit) longer screw and replace the stock one. this will let you screw it into the barrel to hold it in place.

i drilled a tiny detent into the center of the barrel and tightened the barrel set pin to have it pop up with more force to help keep it in but no dice. might just have to but jb welb on the left and right channel to keep it from moving :/

Make sure you drill it big enough and deep enough or it won't catch.
