    A week ago while cleaning an OU barrel I noticed that the metal strip between the two barrels is coming apart on one side. I am not sure how long I have been shooting it in this condition. The strip on the other side looks intact. Is it fixable with something like JB Weld or other specialized glue or does it need to go to a smithy? Approximately how much ($) to fix it if sent to a smith?

    Doug Braker did an outstanding job on fixing the side rib on my perazzi. Less than $100 bucks for using an epoxy to regule the ribs.

    Clean the surface to be epoxied with rubbing alcohol. You can use Devcon Plastic Steel epoxy. Mix equal parts of resin and hardener, apply to surface and clamp. Wipe off any excess that oozes out. You can use a 100 watt light bulb to keep the glued area warm, this will help the epoxy cure. HMB
