Ruger 10/22 stuck barrel

I had problems with POI change and a suppressor. One of the things I considered was barrel droop. I discovered that my barrel wouldn't budge, an after market bull barrel on the shiny aluminum receiver.

It's only been on 30 years or so. Actually I thought it would have been taken off by the gunsmith when I had it threaded last year, but that's another story.

Tried a couple days of kroil, but it still wouldn't budge. Stripped the gun and got out the heat gun. A little judicious tapping with a piece of wood on where the V-block fits and off it came.

The receiver cleaned up easily, just with a cloth, haven't tried the barrel yet. Kidd includes or recommends anti-sieze for the barrel end.

Did you ever determine whether you were getting baffle strikes or not?

Don't use anti-seize with graphite in it if it'll contact the aluminum

Not that I could see, but some people in the thread seemed to think with a 22 it might not be visible. The consensus was that the suppressor was seating on the crown instead of the shoulder.

Maybe Kidd thinks the anodizing will protect against galvanic corrosion. BMW airhead motorcyclists have been using it for years on the exhaust spigots to prevent the exhaust nuts from ripping the aluminum threads off. There are plenty of cautions on the internet about anti-sieze and AR 15's.

Interesting. Maybe I will use moly grease.

There are many forms of anti seize.

The normal stuff used on autos is aluminum based. But there is copper and nickel based.
