Barrel extension slightly loose?

Post by cantgrowup »

I just noticed that the barrel extension on my "new" Model 8 .25 Rem is slightly loose. It rotates very slightly and will separate a few thousandths when pulled/pushed laterally. How are these barrel extensions affixed to the barrels? Screwed in and then staked (those little index marks)? Can this barrel extension be "tightened"? The barrel is by no means "shot-out" so I don't think the rifle was heavily used. It's not moving a lot, but I did notice it when cleaning the barrel by itself out of the shroud.
