    Any of you gents ever tried to epoxy a loose rib back on? How did it work out and what did you use?

    I once installed a solid rib on a barrel which originally had no rib. Owned and shot it for several years with no problem.

    Clean barrel and rib with acetone. Use JB Weld (not quick weld) held in place with clamps for 24 hours. Remove excess JB before it hardens.

    Same thing as jnoe, JB weld woks like a champ. Clean surface with gunscrubber or acetone first.

    Loctite Black Max. This is the best for ribs because it has a little flex to it which allows it to absorb the vibrations from recoil.

    Use hi temp Permatex. Has the fexibility to withstand the recoil vibrations. Most epoxy doesn't. Make sure you degrease first.

    I put a rib on with a black epoxy I got from Poly-Choke. It's the same stuff they put golf club heads on the shaft with. Still flexible after 6 years.
