    I took the Bayonet off my M44 to clean it. When i put it on and in the closed position its doesn't stay firmly against the stock anymore, it wobbles about 1/2" off the stock when you lean it one way. What can i do to fix this?

    And one more thing: The sight adjustments are graduated in 1s, from one to ten. I was wondering if each graduation is the number multiplied by 10 or one hundred.

    Did you pry on the bayo lug to get it off? Meaning did you have to spread the bayo lug at all to remove the bayo? I'm looking at mine right now. The bay lug screw bottom is flush with the lower part of the lug. Is your screw bottom flush or a little recessed? If slighly recessed you may want to place the bayo lug in a vise (use a buffer pad to avoid scratches on the lug) and SLOWLY, GENTLY tighten the vise a little to slightly compress the ears of the lug.
    How was the bayo tightness before disassembly?

    Hope it helps.
    Remember, this adjustment to the bayo lug will be very slight. Very small increments of pressure.
