I recently took apart my pistol and I ran into a problem. Part #28 is very tight in the outer barrel and doesn't move freely like it did before. Also when I adjust the hop up the barrel turns with it. What did I do wrong?

I'm guessing that part #29 isn't properly seated.  This could explain the two issues you describe.

I tried many times to line up the flat part of the barrel and part #29, but it still did those two things.

Didn't want to take pictures. The gun works but now it shoots to the left right when I fire it. It fires right on the left dot of the sights.

My MKII also curves to the left a bit, but I've never had my barrel move like that. Everything in the video looks right to me...

Hey zach, welcome to the forums. According to the video and parts diagram posted above, it appears to me that you are missing part 50. Part 50 is a pin that locks the inner barrel/ hop up assembly with the outer barrel.

When you install a metal outer barrel you need to make sure part 50 is in and flush with the rest of the barrel or else it will be hard getting the barrel in and out of the slide as shown in your video, but you don't even have the part... (and it seems to me that your outer barrel is the original plastic one) which makes me wonder why it's so tight when you're trying to remove the barrel from the slide.....Did you lose part 50?

The inner barrel shouldn't be able to rotate entirely. The arm that secures the inner barrel and prevents it from moving needs to be seated properly, like GCW said. I would take apart your barrel one more time and put it back together, making sure everything is in the right spot. Because your inner barrel isn't secured properly, I'd guess that'd be the reason why your gun isn't shooting accurately.
