40XB front guard screw



Log in to see fewer ads
I believe mine is flawed (bent?) as when it is going in or out the amount of torque varies tighter to looser to tighter again. It is short so it's hard to tell if it's not straight. Anyhow, I want to replace it. Anyone have any idea where I might look for one?

Put it in your drill,and watch it while it's spinning. Any runout will be easy to see. Lots of aftermarket parts for the Remington 700.

I'll try that drill operation next time it's out. I have 4 other Remington 700 front guard screws and they are all a bit longer than my 40XB one which is 1.162 and the heads are a little different.

Later on, Remington used a wood screw to hold the ADL style t/g in place on the 40X single shot models. This because some owners were torquing it like an action screw. Drill it out a little bigger, glue in a piece of small dowel rod and use a wood screw. As an added bonus, the t/g stays attached to the stock when you remove the barreled action for cleaning, trigger work, etc.

So what you are talking about is the front action or receiver screw. No guard in it.
Interesting that it is bent. There are many out there. I have several. I will have to check on length.

Thanks. We verified that it is bent, just rolled it on the edge of a flat table. Then in a drill chuck.

There is no standard overall length for the front action screw. Or the rear one either. The 40X, the 700ADL's and 700BDL's the 721 and 722, the early verses the later all came with different style stocks. The action screws varied a lot over the years. You need a action screw that is longer than the one you have and then need to use a grinder or file to make it fit your gun correctly. Early screws were slotted and then later on they were hex head screws. I like the early screw my self.

there are definitely standards for the screw lengths for the screws in question the lengths i stated is as published in Remington factory manufactures spec books for the 40X .22 - totally inconceivable that any factory would manufacture any thing with out having factory standards fort every item they produced - dimensions istated are for the 40X.22 - no fitting or grinding necessary if you use the factory specs -

LOL I knew you wouldn't understand real life. LOL That book is relevant to that specific gun. Not every variation 700/721/722. LOL

FYI - that book contains component specs on every different model that Remington produced at the date of printing - i completely understand that your statement is totally inaccurate + unsubstantiated about there is being no standard specifications for manufactured parts that are factory produced for each particular model -

You have specs for the guns made at that time and it doesn't cover previous and future model variations. I have that same book and I have several Remington loose leaf binders that show different specs for the same screw for different years and models. Your desire to be right is clouding your common sense. Let's keep on track here and not hi jack this thread.
