I've got a Glenfield Model 60 that I inherited and the magazine tube band is loose where it dove-tails onto the barrel. It remains secured to the tube so there is not a problem with it sliding all the way off; it just slides side-to-side.

Is there a way to secure it or is this a part that just needs to be replaced?

If replacement is needed; where is the best place for Model 60 parts?

Thanks,

Dan

You could take a punch and peen the dovetail down with the band in place. Or you could take it off and use JB Weld on it.

Just peen the dove tail(on the band not the barrel) to tighten it up Do not use ANYTHING to make it it permanent.This needs to be able to be removed.

Peen down the dovetail like goofy said. Its easy and effective and you cant tell anything was ever done to it.

do as googy and helix suggest,, its the best way to fix,, i run into this all the time on some of the older guns,, if u use any type of epoxy, it could make it very difficult to remove at a later date, and some epoxies will damage the blueing.
