Lyman thimble loose
Anyone have trick to tightening the lower thimble on a Lyman Deerstalker? It is the thimble with the stud on it for the sling swivel so I can't get to the screw in there that attaches it to the barrel. The upper thimble was a little loose too but easy access as there is a hole in the thimble to put the screwdriver in on the screw. I tried turning the stud out but didn't budge so thinking it may be one piece. Didn't want to overdue it and break the thimble off. Special tool to get in there on the screw through the ramrod holes on each end of the thimble?
Hunting is not a matter of life and death. It's more important than that.
