Pls what is the consensus on the best Loctite to use to stabilize the barrel in the action for 457/ 455's?

EDIT: I will be going with the Loctite 609 as recommended below

I am hopefully getting my new Lilja barrel shimming dialed and finalized on my 457 in this weekend. Next I would like to test what further benefits Loctite could bring to my group size.

I am thinking, that strictly from the perspective of how the forces are transferred between the barrel and action, a more even load transfer there should create less stress concentrations, less distortion on the action, center the barrel in the action and minimize barrel movements & flex between the barrel and action which should end up delivering better outcomes on group sizes all other factors being equal. Pls let me know if I am way off in my thinking.

tnx for any insight or advice on this


Loctite 609

Skip the loctite and use some kind of permanent bedding like acraglass.

Acraglas would be a very poor choice for gluing in a barrel. Loctite 609 works very well for that application.

No worries. I glued in the Lilja barrels on my 455 and KIDD 10/22. Made a huge difference in how they both shot. Just make sure you get the extractor slots timed before the 609 sets. I clean the barrel shank and the inside of the receiver that it fits in with acetone before gluing. Then I put the receiver in a padded vise plumbed vertical, smear a little 609 on the shank and slide it in place and let it cure.

if you need to remove the barrel I use a laser temp gauge with a heat gun and heat it to no more than 130 celsius , this breaks the loctite adhesion and with a bit of engine oil to penetrate the joint the barrel will be removable. if you are not happy with gluing it in, but I bet you love the way that Lilja shoots !!!
