Question Golden Boy magazine tube support problem



Log in to see fewer ads
I have a Golden Boy, .22 mag, about 5 yrs old. Love it and accurate. Recently I noticed the magazine tube not aligned with the barrel. On closer inspection, the magazine support collar that dovetails into the underneath side of the barrel was loose and can be moved side to side with finger pressure; probably would come all the way out if pushed far enough. Question is how to fix? I have some limited smithing abilities but not sure I could manufacture a shim. Maybe just send back to Henry as I know their CService is as good as there is. Thanks for any suggestions.

Send an email to Henry with this same information; they will give you instructions on how to send it to them and fix it under the lifetime warranty.

Or you could get some loctite that's designed to fill a gap

I was wondering about Loctite. I've have blue Loctite (in the red bottle) and have used it. Might give it a try before sending it back. Are you suggesting some other Loctite than that?

The dovetail on my H003T was loose so I put a drop of blue locktite on it when the barrel was hot. Problem solved.

You could try taking a sharp punch and lightly pinging the underside of the part that slides into the slot. I have done this with with front sights that were loose, this and some loctite should fix the problem.

I agree that blue loctite will probably resolve your issue. If it doesn't, at least you have not deformed or damaged your rifle and returning it to Henry for repair will not be a problem.

Red Loctite is what I use for any application where a fixture must be secured and regular disassembly is not an issue. 1911 front sights, etc and it's what I'd use on that dovetail magazine thimble. Degrease it with acetone, apply the Loctite and carefully center the mag tube under the barrel. If future disassembly is ever required, heat the part to about 400 degrees and the thread locker will vaporize. You'll see a little wisp of smoke when it lets go.
