View Full Version : Front sight screw, Model 70
June 25, 2010, 08:17 PM
Could use some help with this. the screw holding on the front sight of my model 70 is loose, therefore the sight is loose. Yet, I can't turn the screw in either direction. How might I fix this?
ALSO, will this loose front sight affect barrel vibrations, thus accuracy?

Sounds like your front sight screw is too long, making it impssible to tighten it enough. Take out the screw and shortin it a bit.
And yes, a front sight flopping around at the end of your barrel isn't too hot in the accuracy department.

hate to say this but if you can't move it counter clockwise then it may well be cross-threaded
did you buy this gun used??
try to soak the threads with a good oil such as Kroil
then try and remove it
