    Greetings, Thanks to happy7 for pointing out it is a split pin. I was under impression it was the sprue plate hinge screw. The pin can be removed; but, it is not an easy task. Cheers,

    Greetings, Either Shilen, Krieger, or Douglas make a good rimfire barrel. All offer blanks that you turn down to finish diameter. Next decision is do I want CrMo or Stainless? Cheers, Dave

    Greetings, There is enough material sticking out. You might try applying Kroil to the thread and let it soak for a day. Then, grip the screw with a small set of Vice Grips. Turn the screw back and forth gently while applying more Kroil.

    Greetings, Try applying some Kroil to the screw and walk away for a while. Check with the dealer to ascertain if it is left or right hand thread. Cheers, Dave
