"He said that it's impossible to realign the marks perfectly once the barrel has been removed"
Don't know what he's talking about here, I do it all the time. I've rebuilt over 20 of them now and the marks for the most part are right on. What I do is to put thread compound on the threads, screw the barrel on to the - or very close to the witness marks alignment and then put the breech together with extractor ect and load a round in the chamber to ensure the extractor works smoothly. Most of the time the marks align perfectly. When I'm done, I re-tap the alignment mark if needed.. usually not.
