New Pac Lite barrel

I just bought a new Pac Lite barrel for my Ruger Mark III. It's a 4.5 inch with the threaded cap so I can add a compensator later.

My standard heavy barrel needs to be removed with the help of a rubber mallet. It's TIGHT.

The Pac Lite barrel is so loose it almost falls off when installing it. Is there a way to make it tighter?

If you don't plan on removing the barrel later I know people that have Loc-tite to permanently attach barrels to10-22's. Be sure to use the red or green Loc-tite not the blue. If you did want to remove the barrel later you would have to heat up to 200 -300 degrees.

I think I'm going to make a shim out of a .38 case and see if that helps.

Dont Loctite it. I used a soda can and made a shim for mine. Its common to have to shim them. A revolver brass casing will work also, but might be more effort to shape. Whatever you choose, a shim is the way to tighten the fit
