    During a reblue operation a silver pheasant came off the receiver. The receiver has been to an excellent engraver who annealed the bird, recut the receiver and replaced the bird. It continues to work its way loose.
    So. Can anyone recoomend an adhesive that will permanently attach the bird to the receiver but no mess up the blueing?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thoroughly degrease the area and use an epoxy glue!

    locktite 380 black max it will take high heat and solvents be careful if it gets on anything you don't want it will be a job to clean up.

    Loctite Black Max is great stuff, it is like regular Loctite but it has some kind of elastomers added so it can give just a little without breaking the bond. It is used to attach ramps for slug sights on shotgun barrels that are too thin for screws so it should hold. JB weld is good stuff too.

    Contact Dennis DeVault and ask him what he glues his ribs on with.. that should hold it, he's never had a rib come loose.
