RE:Loose barrel on lee-enfield

Not uncommon on old Lee's. Read Roy Dunlap's book "Gunsmithing" for how British Armours solved this problem, but if it was my Rifle, i'd get some "Thread-locking " Loctite, either the red or green.Clean all oil off threads, apply Lotite and screw Barrel in.Trust me, it works. I used this idea on a Woodsman pistol and it worked fine, never any problem with it.The reason my barrel was loose was it was a replacement barrel, the original had been cut-off by a drug dealer to make a "belly-gun".I was lucky to have my stolen gun returned by the police, this was 1982, these days i'd expect to hear it was melted down, esp. in California where i was living at the time, now in Texas.A free state at last.
