10-22 barrel installation

Going to install a green mountain barrel on my 10-22 carbine, if the barrel is tight going into receiver is it ok to put barrel in freezer overnight, use heat gun to warm receiver and have a slight heat shrink when barrel is installed?

GM barrels have been a pretty snug fit in the Ruger's I've installed them. The freezer step has taken care of all of them. You might also take a minute to clean both surfaces, as even small burrs and metal chips will hang you up.
