Trouble adjusting barrel shroud

Hi guys, Hopefully this is an easy answer for someone, I bought this barrel for my MR1, and the shroud and sight are at a 45 degree angle to the gun when the barrel is tightened. I found 2 hex screws but it only loosens part of the shroud, not the sight. Does anyone have any advice for me? Thanks!

hmmm, id say try to get a o-ring that will fit inbetween the barrel and breach to take up a little room, or wrap your barrel threads in teflon tape so as it screws in it will get tighter and you can control where it stops

Thanks trbo. After fiddling around for a while longer, I finally found out that there are 2 smaller hex screws in the threded holes of the larger 2, those smaller ones hold the discs on the barrel that the shroud attaches to. Not only was i able to adjust the rotation, i was able to move the whole shroud back over the barrel extension so it looks a bit less goofy. Sadly i put a few scratches in the barrel, but nothing some flat black touch up paint wont fix.
