It's tight and not going anywhere. I use GI barrel nut and have to take the last section of the piston assembly part out.
Hmm. If removing the piston assembly endplate (for lack of a better term) won't result in the springs damaging the back of the sleeve, this is a game changer. I wonder if just cutting the endplate to be flush with the sleeve would cause any issues from it spinning freely in the sleeve under the spring pressure when cycling?

Looking at the design and imagining the stresses I think the plate also serves as a support and helps protect the upper. And having it riveted stationary in place probably helps accomplish that. I'd bet loose you'd see flexing during piston movement which would probably to wallow out the hole in the upper.
