can anyone suggest a glue that would be safe for my Buckmark slide release tab?

it fell off when i was cleaning it, and now is very loose. its just the little tab part with the treads on it. the actual slide release is fine

I'd almost say to replace the whole thing before you glue it back together.....

I've never glued metal gun parts together.

Have you called Browning to get a new one? I needed some small washers for my Buchmark and called Browning's customer service. They sent me twice what I needed and it was free.

it looks like it was glued or epoxyed at one point. i can see the dried glue in the hole.

If that is the case, try some Gorilla Glue.

If you have any laying around, AcraGlas might work well, too.

when i showed the range attendants at the NRA range, he showed me his buckmark, although it was called something different when he bought it the year i was born (1982) his slide release is all one peice, but mine is two, the actual slide release and the tab with treads.

Those are the washers that hold the top strap with the rear sight on the reciever. Those are the same ones I lost. They sent me several, all free.

cool thats wonderful. i have a feeling that as much as i clean my gun, somewhere along the line i will lose several of those tiny lil bastards.

i guess browning has pretty good customer service, i have never dealt with them before.

how quickly did they send them? i wanted to test out my new custom barrel this weekend...

That part is available from Brownells, too.

what the hell are you doing when you clean your gun? sounds like more damage than good. call browning, and in the mean time use jb weld, or 2 part 2 ton epoxy

i have no idea. i mean, nothing too crazy. i use a nylon toothbrush looking tool, and lil squares of t-shirt, q-tips and a rag. i use rem-oil and break-free CLP. i clean my gun after about 500 rounds, which is every other trip to the range. i would say i clean it 2 or 3 times a month.

what kind of JB Weld? there is marine and waterproof, etc...

When mine fell off I just used the quick setting JB Weld. It took less time to fall off the first time than it has been since I glued it on. Just make sure you thoroughly degrease before you glue. I used alcohol but brake cleaner or other degreasers would work as well. One advantage of JB Weld is its natural color is close to gun metal so the little bit that may show will not show up.

RE: Browning customer service,
They made me pay for the little "C" clip that retains the recoil spring on the guide rod.
