Challenger ll grip panels



Log in to see fewer ads
OK guys, glad to report I have my first ever Browning pistol and I love it. One minor? problem.
Neither grip panel will tighten down to the point where there is no movement. The screws show some blue Loc-tite and I snugged them as much as I dared, still loose. Suggestions?

Do the panels fit tight against the frame - just pressing them against it? If so, it could be the Loctite is making the screws tight in the tapped holes before they get tight against the grips. If that's the case it might be as simple as cleaning the Loctite off.

Remember that a panel will hold some of the mechanism in. Be careful when you take it apart.

Thanks for the reply Chim and MDHB. I removed the screws again and then ran them back into the frame without the grips to see if they were tightening before being snug against the shoulder of the screw. The screws bottomed out no problem so I looked up some other Challengers on GB and saw that they all had slotted screws, mine were hexagon with narrow heads. Went into some spare parts and found two more screws, 8X32, shortened them to equal the correct length and now all is well!
