I made the above comments because I’ve seen takedown rifles in pretty good shape otherwise, that locked up a little "sloppy". Seemed like a little slack in the barrel threads.

Gary, can you take a square on shot like this? I don’t know if it’s an optical illusion or my cataract but your picture makes the ejector notch look turned slightly beyond vertical. 😕

Gene,
Here’s another pic but I cant seem to take one as clear as yours is. The notch does seem slightly off, but I sure don’t see any signs that the barrel has ever been changed.

I don’t believe the problem is entirely from wear on the mating surface of takedown ring. I think some of the looseness my be in the barrel threads.Over tightening of the magazine tube may have some effect on the coarse interrupted threads. Maybe "stretching" the threads somewhat and causing looseness there.

Yes, along with the theory I mentioned above, I agree that the over tightening pushes the two components apart and as a result something has to give. The barrel threads are going to take the hit and over a long period of time the gap shows up.
