2nd Allin Conversion Breech Screw

Posted by John 'JR' Hunt on Wednesday, 25 November 2015, at 7:13 p.m.

Putting together a 2nd Allin Conversion from parts. Looking for a spec on how tight the breech screw is suppose to be when assembled.

The breech screw I have goes just slightly past the vertical when I tighten it as much as I can by hand. Guess Springfield would just try another breech screw from the parts bin if it was being assembled at the armory. Was thinking I might 'shim' it a bit with solder by tinning the breech end of the barrel when I reinstall the rear sight and breech strap.

Wonder if anyone out there might have had this problem to deal with before?

Thanks, JR
