Ruger MK II question
This site is blocked at work so I just signed up from home.
I broke the forward sight screw in the barrel. My ham-handed, non-english speaking machinist "friend" did not fully understand DO NOT DRILL INTO THE BARREL when I asked him to remove the broken piece of screw. He has not fully understand yes, no yes? and helpfully drilled all the way thru the barrel liner and neatly retapped the hole! Yes, my fault for not watching and he shall hear no grief from me about this, ever. I can man up on this one.
The hole edges are clean but is this gun dangerous? I am afraid I have already answered my own question and am just looking for confirmation.
I have a spare barrel liner that looks unused. Can I chuck the reciever end of the barrel assembly in a 1.00 collet and unscrew the barrel? The flats on the barrel are .745, a 3/4" wrench should do it. Is there a Loctite I should soften with a heat gun (not torch)? Can a regular guy press out a barrel liner and replace it?
