The single screw that holds my 10/22 to the stock seems to keep backing out after about 2-300 rounds. Does anyone have a good solution to this?

I was thinking blue loctite.

"Seems to"? :)

If you've tightened it properly and this keeps happening, LocTite is as good a way to go as any. I tend to be a member of the "If it works, it's good." school...

Art you got me. I does back out. Happy now. I tighten it down pretty good and it keeps backing out. :)

I'll try out the loctite. I'm a member of that same school but it no workie.

Check to make sure it's actually tightening. Sometimes the screws are a bit too long and bottom out on the barrel before they squish the stock enough. You might be able to see a mark on the underside of the barrel if you look in the hole. Also some guy sells Allen socket headed stainless action screws. I think his outfit is called weaponkraft.

I'll second the weaponcraft allen screws....and his bolt buffers are cool too. The screws are especially great if you tear it down a lot for reciever cleaning. He's got a link over on rimfirecentral.com.

I had to cut a couple of threads off of mine, worked fine then. I'd check that before resorting to LocTite.

I took the 10/22 apart today and the set screw does not touch the barrel. I put the loctite on the rifle today. I couldnt find a link to weaponscraft so I'll try this and give you guys a range report as soon as possible.

$8 will get you an allen head take down screw with a T handle wrench.
Might as well get one of his bolt buffers while you're at it.
