Gunsmither blocks?



Log in to see fewer ads
Will the Gunsmither blocks fit the 77-22? If not, what are the alternatives? I am considering redoing my years old bedding job on my '80s 77-22, and wonder if there will be any advantage to replacing the stock v block.
Thanx!

I tried an alternative I read here sometime back, that is not use the wedge block, instead retain the barrel with green locktite, I used sleeve retainer 609.
This caused direct improvement in groups. The fit of the barrel in the receiver was not loose, but not precision. The block would pull the barrel noticeably downward.
Its worth trying I think, the lockite can be more easily removed at much lower temperature by melting bees wax into the joint.

The Gunsmitherô Block will work just fine, as the 77/.22 uses the same barrel wedge block as a 10/22.

What are these Gunsmither blocks and what do they do for the 77/22? I am working on my 80's era 77/22 in a walnut stock and I am trying to get all the accuracy out of it that i can.


http://www.gunsmithertools.com does not seem to be working for me.

Their website is down or something right now. Brimstone sells them on their site for $18. As far as what they do, they prevent barrel droop. The design of the OEM v-block makes it so the tighter it is the more it puts pressure pulling downward on the barrel. On most rifles with standard factory tapered barrels they're not typically needed as long as there is a tight fit between the barrel and receiver. Now more and more people are using heavy bull barrels which the OEM design was not meant for. The added weight of the barrel can cause it to cant down over time or right away if you don't have a tight fit. This can cause a couple of problems. It can cause bullets to improperly feed from the mag causing pretty much any type of feeding related issues (fte's, ftf's, ftl's, double stacks, etc.). It can also cause a problem with trying to sight in a scope. If the barrel is pointed down enough, depending on how much elevation adjustment the scope has, it could run out of adjustment and still not be able to be zeroed. These aren't problems that you are definitely going to get if you don't use a Gynsmither's block, but IMO why risk it? Especially if you have to buy a v-block anyway as they are only a few dollars more.
