Default Loose barrel!!!

Ok, took one of my m1s out to the range with my teenage son to do a little recreational shooting and spend some quality time together. Range trip was uneventful good times all around shot about 80 rounds through the m1. While taking the rifle apart for a good cleaning my son calls me over to ask about a “ little wobble” I take the barreled reciever from him and holy crap the barrel unthreads in my hands! This particular rifle was purchased by a friend of mine from the cmp in June of 2016 I have the coa but not the hang tag. Has this happened to anybody else? I don’t have the tools or expertise to torque it back on and I think I would like to have someone take a look at it first anyway. Will the cmp help out in a situation like this or am I on my own?

A good smith can roll the shoulder. Or CMP might offer this service. Since you are not the original purchaser, you might have to go thru custom shop.

Congratulate your son for his sharp observation.

If you are close enough to bring it to me in Louisville I can check it and remount the barrel for you. Good luck

I bought Garand years back at a Fun Show. Took it home and the barrel unscrewed in my hands. I had a barrel or two in my pile and found a good barrel. A buddy mounted the new barrel. Very odd situation, first time it ever happened to me.

Rather unexpected for sure. How tightly are the barrels torqued on?

Barrels on Milsurps (or rifles with gas systems and/or front sight machining) are not torqued on, they are indexed.
From the sounds of it this barrel is out of spec for this receiver; most likely it is fixable.
