okay i'm a dumbass,getting the muzzle loader ready to go deer hunting and i throw it in a gun vise to clean it good and managed to snap off the rear sight which is held on by one screw,let me say i snapped the screw off flush in the barrel.So I drill a small hole,use a screw extractor but no luck(loctite holds good) so bigger drill bit and retap threads,only i was off on the size of the drill bit by a Red CH so now the hole is to big for the screw so i look around and see duct tape,maybe that will work,and i see JB weld,now i'm thinking fill the hole with JB weld,let it harden,find the right drill bit and tap,and redo in the same screw hole or should i move the rear sight back and drill and tap into virgin steel? I have had luck with JB weld before but i don't know if its gonna hold up to the task i'm thinking of,what say you guys?
i tried being reasonable,i didn't like it, NRA LIFE MEMBER,USMC VETERAN
