Log in to see fewer ads
Got a rail to put on my 22/45 Heavy Barrel Target.

Tried to get the filler screws out with my 00 Phillips.

Two came out with some difficulty.......the third won't come out.

Am I using the wrong tool?

Put a little heat on it with a torch or heat Gun. Just a little.

For small screws I use a heating iron on the tip of the screw for a short time. It also helps later if you want to get them out after putting blue Loctite on them.

On my Mark IV 22/45 at least, those are hex socket screws, not Phillips.

That's what I was wondering.

These are tiny screws and my eyes are old.

I can't see anything except a small dimple that looks like it was meant for a tiny Phillips.

Thanks.

Thanks much........I just had to go buy a smaller hex set as these are smaller than any I have ever had to remove before.

All done and now I can get that rail on without further problems........I hope!!!

Forget the blue goo for small screws like this. It’s total overkill for small screws. Fingernail polish will hold any of them and you can remove them with out problems when wanted.

My eyes are old too and I keep an led lighted magnifying glass on my workbench. Harbor Freight, 12 bucks, a few year ago.

Should have bought one years ago.

Thanks to all for the help and the compliments.

I now have thicker grips and it's running well.

Purple Loctite 222 is the recommended thread locker for fasteners .25" in diameter and smaller.


As long as you completely clean the male/female threads with alcohol to remove any oil residue, Purple Loctite will keep those screws in place - but they can easily be removed without the use of a heat gun or heat source.
