    I think Tera used to tell us to snug up the barrel retention bolt and give it an extra 1/4 turn.

    Actually....and nothing against Terra (we all loved her)...but she was the one who said you couldn't tighten it too much, lol. Nobody's perfect.

    Probably not a bad idea to invest in a Fixit Stick kit, then add a compatible torque limited (from another source) that goes high enough for the barrel retention screw. Always good to have a compact all-in-one tool kit for field repairs.
    Fool-proofing serves only one purpose: identify bigger fools.
