Lyman defect ?

I have two Lyman Deerstalkers. I bought one NIB from a member here. I put a swivel sling on it, as the sling-stays came factory on the gun. PROBLEM THOUGH. The sling-keep for the upper, is attached to the bottom of the ramrod barrel holder, it stripped an d pulled off the gun this past Saturday. I also bought a Deerstalker a couple years ago, and the guy handed me the stripped out ramrod barrel along with the gun. It appears this is a flaw ? They should have thought of a better way to deal with the pressure a sling can cause, instead of trying to hold the barrel with a cheap, way too small screw ?

Did this happen to anybody else ?

Re: Lyman defect ?

My Deerstalker did the same thing. I put some blue Gun Tite on the threads and screwed it back in even though there wasn't much of a thread left. It hasn't loosened again and if it does it will get a stronger epoxy.

Re: Lyman defect ?

I ripped mine from my TC too...probably same deal..minimal threads in the ramrod pipe..?


I gave up...thought the same thing...poor design.

Wilting Flower...nah, you're a much tougher manly man. The sling will just add more weight to an already rifle...just sayin' FT
