Re: 81 300 Savage loose barrel extension

Had a Loctite seminar back in the day, blue should be sufficient as long as the parts don't warm too much. Purple would be a possibility, but is really for small parts & low strength. If forced to use red be absolutely sure to heat the threads to the right temp before any attempt to unthread. I ...

Re: 81 300 Savage loose barrel extension

I concur with Luke, even the FBI brazed the shroud to the yoke, I suggest the smith will need to unscrew the shroud & prep the threads B4 brazing. Therefore He/She will need to be a professional with the machine tools to back it up. Not a job for a hand drill or a cheapo drill press.

when you get the tube, don't use red or blue loctite on threads, too much chance of peeling thread.
Loctite makes a small screw formula that is great for sights & stuff, I just forget the number. I've posted it in other threads just search mine for loctite.
