Rem 37 screw info



Log in to see fewer ads
first off thanks for any input/help....saw this at LGS.....I know the phillips head isnt correct....wondering what size the org would be... I assume this phillips head screw is a 8/32...or maybe even a 10/32 or 10/24...if it is.....would that mean that what ever this is screwed into has been drilled and tapped?....or if its suppose to be a 8/32 screw and all would need to do is find a correct slotted screw...
Thanks again al

That screw is called the front guard bow screw and it is special. It screws into a shaped flat nut. If it is screwed into the nut that is probably messed up. I will check later and tell you what screw size and pitch it is. Wayne

That screw is 1/4-40. I would guess the thin flat nut was lost at sometime and was replaced with a wood screw. Not too hard to make the nut if you have the proper tap.

1/4-40 tap & die set can be bought on amazon for 13.50. Not a bad price. Wayne

Thanks for all the help...so...if its a 8/40 thread...than i assume the phillips screw that is in it, would be 8/32...and it was "jammed in" maybe....and if thats the case i wouldnt think running a 8/40 tap into it would clean the threads...(maybe though)...if it doesnt work....how hard would it be to find the "bow nut" or have one made.....still not sure what its function is


again thanks al

Went back to look at this....mainly to check stock LOP....it measures right about 13 1/2".... ( thinking that it was cut)...so this morning i am looking at the stock sticky here (very nice by the way)...and instead of a type 2 stock, it seems that this early 4 digit sn2037 is sporting a (changed out? with 2 screw rear swivel) later type 3 Randle stock...also i noticed that there is a small screw recessed in frt of trigger....would this mean that the trigger has been changed out to the "miracle trigger"...

Thanks al

well.....after doing some checking...it seems that there were 2003 37's made up to jan 1940....when the miracle trigger and this number 3 stock was introduced...sooooo....its possible that this would be one of the first one made in this configuration....how does one check from looking at the trigger if its a miracle trigger...
thanks for the help al

Miracle trigger or not, this rifle could be gone if you keep checking on the information. So you had best weight time researching to the possibility of someone else snapping it up. Condition and price are the factors, but a nut and a screw arent worth losing it, INMHO.

That screw may have changed over time, but I checked the 37 I sporterized a few years back, Serial Number 04985, and that front trigger guard screw is the same diameter and pitch as the two action screws, the oddball 7/32" x 28. I remember well, because the previous owner had replaced the action screws with some stainless cap screws, and I ended up using a couple of Rem 700 action screws by re-threading them to 7/32" x 28 and turning down the heads. In retrospect, re-tapping the receiver to 1/4"x 28 would have been much easier. Also, since I restocked the rifle, and the TG nut was embedded into the old target stock, I ended up using a thin brass nut for the TG screw:




BTW, the Miracle Trigger will look like this. I'm guessing that's what's in that rifle, unless it was replaced:
