Received my barrel today!

I feel the Loctite #242 is what I should use.

Does everyone concur?

I did install the "like new" barrel this evening. First Mossberg work I've done in quite awhile!

I used the Loctite #242,probably didn't need it? That little tube cost $8.50

I use the Permatex red high strength gel. Works great and just a little heat and you can work the barrel loose if need be.

Rosscoe, I saw I was a little late to the party but I think you will be happy with what you did. Gluing the barrels in works very well.

I've been using various "locktite" thread lockers on revolver and long gun barrel threads for a long time with great results. "Stud and Bearing on AR barrel extensions, but not any other place" I like the relatively new "black" thread locker, low strength, vibration resistant on scope mount screws and other small fasteners that don't require Hi torque.

Most revolvers I rebarrel, need thread locker in leiu of shims or peening.
Many revolvers (high mileage race guns and high round count target guns) have some thread distortion, that is not easily repairable.

Thread engagement is the determining factor, I use gage plugs and standard check dies, Most threaded aftermarket replacement barrels I encounter are on the large end of tolerance on the threaded section. On barrels I thread and chamber, I guage the receiver and thread accordingly. A drop of thread locker is placed on all my long gun barrel work, 'specially the RUM and short mag cartridges.

About the only long gun's I don't use thread locker on are the Savage or Remage style barrel mount systems. Never on take down long arms, although I have had some come into the shop glued into one piece, with locktite RED, because a previous owner glued it solid to sell it. (it's always the borrowing BIL or the previous owner isn't it?)

That's my experience, take from it what you will.

Paul
