Stripped threads?

I noticed on one of my syn stock rifles a screw missing and another loose and won,t tighten.I,ve never touched em so don,t know why it is stripped.I was wondering how I would be able to snug the screws up.It is not a critical area,just a Escutcheon on a f/lock.

Perhaps a high strength epoxy to rebuild the missing threads or just glue the screw in.

Try the green thread locker. I use the brand called Gun-tite.

A little JB Weld and insert the screw, then lightly tighten it and allow it to dry.

Alrighty then!

I thought of all of those ideas also.Don,think I,d want to use JB though in case I,d ever need to remove it.

Would it be possible to use the JB Weld and coat the screw with a release agent so you could remove it?

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

Re: Stripped threads?

Jam a wooden tooth pick or two in the hole and snap them off flush with the stock. Then tighten the screws. If you take the screws back out just put new tooth picks in the holes.
