    I have a rib coming loose mid-rib. Both ends are secure for now. Close inspection of loose section makes me think it was a glue-on type of repair previously. Should I wait for the entire length to come loose, or forcibly remove it all now? How difficult is it to remove the old crud? Putty knife or fingernail? Is this a gunsmith job or do-it-yourself?

    Search "loctite". Ask them about their #620.

    Didn't sound like a floating rib to me.

    BTW, Do they still make the Mach 1? Ask them how they secured the hold points on their floating rib.
