Ok...question first...I have a 1928 Model 12 16 gauge and I bought another barrel for it. The barrel is a "proof steel" 1940 barrel, and I don't know if it will work for my "nickel steel" gun. It doesn't look like there's any difference, but the eye's can deceive you sometimes. I don't have anything to measure what type of threads on the 1940's, and I can't compare it to the original because it seems like it's impossibe to get the adjusting screw (I guess this is what it's called) out of the back of the original barrel. I was using the right screw and was really careful to not break it...but guess what happened...one side of it broke off and now I think I'm screwed...no pun intended :)

So here's the question, I was wondering what you guys think would be the best way to get this thing out. I was thinking about drilling it out, but you guys might know a trick or two about taking these little buggers out, I know someone's done it before.

I was thinking about putting this barrel on this assembly until I get another slide and mag and what-not because this other barrel has an old polychoke on it and I can use it for alot more hunting than I can with just the full choke of the original. Bird huntings hard with a full choke! Lol.

Thanks for the reply wraco. It broke off down below the middle of the screwhead. I'm probably going to have to take it to a pro, because I don't think there's any other way, unless taking the other side down and trying one of those new "grabits" from Craftsman, do you think this will work?

Thanks for the reply OW. Can I still get the receiver extension off the barrel without taking out this screw? I was thinking about getting a couple of those rubber jar openers and putting one on the extension and another on the barrel. I'm afraid of usig Vice grips or anything like that, I'm gonna try to keep from marring the barrel any.

The gun is still shootable. The screwhead is broke, and I don't think there's any chance of it comming out while shooting. Lol, I think this things welded in there!

Do you happen to know any tricks on how to get the receiver extension off?
