What’s the angle used on the barrel for the magazine ring?

The old gun I have is a little beat up in that area and the magazine ring seems to be too tight of a fit to twist in properly. I was going to use a 60 degree jeweler’s file to clean it up, but I don’t want to be changing the angle either.

You can’t use a file to clean up the dovetail in the barrel because its not a straight dovetail. The dovetail was machined in a radius.

Then let me ask how hard should it be to turn that ring into position? Does it typically require some mechanical advantage like a wood dowel?

Yes, it should require a mechanical aid to turn it into the correct position.

If it turned in easy then it would become loose quickly.

Thanks for the help.

Used the wood handle to a brush and turned it in. Just need to tidy up the barrel edges a little.
