Thread: A different barrel nut size?

  1. #1

    A different barrel nut size?

    This may be a dumb question, but I have searched and had no luck finding a post or thread that addresses my question. I have a Stevens 200 long action/round back that my barrel nut wrench (SSS brand) will not fit. I have been switching Savage barrels on both large and small shanks for a few years now and have never come across one of the nuts that are a slightly larger diameter than the "standard size" nuts. Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

    I have never heard of this situation, but as far as I would do, I would remove it with pliers or Vise grips or even a pipe wrench, and replace it with a standard size barrel nut, as I get older and grumpier, I have less and less tolerance for things that annoy me.

    Measured a barrel nut O.D. 1.297''. Check wrench for burrs & high spots, it may need to be deburred. Also teeth that fit into nut may need trimmed.

    I used a pipe wrench to take it off. Ended up being three of the teeth on my wrench were blurred. I filed them and now it is good to go. Thank for all of your help.
