Re: For Ernie, Cadet rifle receiver w/ extra holes

You are only going to be setting the barrel up once, and while this is not a really strong fix, it will suffice. I know it sounds awful, but just LIGHTLY peen the threads in several locations - that will snug things up just fine - it will no longer go in all the way by hand.

The only hand-tight barrel I ever encountered was on my left-hand rifled carbine, and that - I'm sure - was due to being loosened by repeated firing. A bit of light peening made it fit just fine, though I do not shoot it.
