Rem 81 barrel nut, how tight?

Post by TNyoteboy »

Until I can get my hands on a copy of the The Great Model 8 and 81, how tight does the barrel nut need to be? I broke down my rifle yesterday with no problems, but my barrel nut did not go back down as far as it did before. I don't think I can get any more clicks out of it, but the barrel protruded the slightest bit before I broke it down. Does it matter as long as the nut is tight?

I usually run mine down until their just snug, If your barrel nut washer has teeth cut on both sides you might try turning it over and see if the the teeth on the nut and washer come a little closer to meshing.

Might have been what happened, washer flipped. Thought about it after I posted but haven't had the time to try it. Thanks for the reassurance.
