Hey there. I have a Marlin Camp-9 which has developed an annoying habit. The barrel unscrews while I am shooting. It can not go far do to the fact that the rear open site would hit the stock. Fact is that it never really gets that far before I notice that I am no longer hitting the target.
I have tried pulling it off and using Loctite 242 (that's the medium strength) to secure it. I have some 271 (very strong) Loctite but I do not know if I should try it or just give up and send it back to the factory.
Anyone out there have a similar problem and solution that you might wish to share.
Thanks,
Mike
PS. Thanks Kernel for the sites. Once the barrel starts behaving, I'm sure they'll work out fine.
