I have a 400,000 range SRC in 30 WCF. The mag tube comes forward when it is shot. Ive tightend and checked it all. But nothing has helped. This one is an early gun that does not have the screw going through the mag tube and into the barrel

I'm not that up on the 94's but it probably uses a screw through the mag band. The mag tube will have a notch between the barrel and tube where the screw goes through to hold the tube from sliding

Bob. Everything is in place and correct. Just doesn't hold

Rex,

If everything is correct it should not slide. Have you removed the forearm and checked it out. My guess something is worn or assembled wrong.

Like Bob said, the two screws for the barrel bands should keep if from sliding forward. How far does it slide forward before it stops moving or would it keep coming out the longer you shot? There should be a notch in the barrel and in the tube where each screw passes through. Check to see if the magazine tube isnt rotated just a little bit to one side or the other to where the notch doesnt catch on the screw. Its a mystery, even without the screws they usually fit pretty tight. Ive had that happen on 1892 button mag carbines where the magazine cap didnt fit tightly in the groove on the underside of the barrel and the recoil would cause it to jump out of the groove and slide out of the forearm wood--quite frustrating.

In addition to the two screws, the front band also acts like a clamp. Make sure that the threads in the front band are not stripped, and as stated earlier make sure the notches are not rounded off.

If the threads are good in the front band, make sure it's assembled vorrectly, the hole for the barrel is slightly smaller than the hole for the mag tube. If its not assembled correctly, they wont hold.
