513T takedown screw removal
 
The takedown screw on Remington 513T rifles is a wide shallow straight slot. Is a driver or tool available to fit this takedown screw? Using a smaller straight slot driver gets the job done but just isn't the right way to do it. Thanks

May be a coin slot. Can't remember. See if a penny or dime fits.

penny or dime much too thin for slot - best to use a screw driver that fits width of slot + then radius the sides so that it fits snug in both width + depth - srewdriver also provides much better leverage for tightening or removing then any coin will -

Thank you, I will try to find something I can alter.

For those screw types, I use a good fitting coin . . .some are foreign . . .grasped in the jaws of locking pliers (vise-grips).
I can get most any required amount of leverage on the screw.

The straight slot is too shallow for a coin to work. I would have to grind a flat spot on it.

I recently bought a set of interchangeable Screw Driver heads with handle made specifically for gunsmithing applications, which I have found very useful. It is made by Wheeler Engineering and cost in the neighborhood of $25.

I have been looking at the pictures of the Wheeler sets. I don't see a bit that looks like what I am looking for. I will have to go shopping one of these days. I have a small set of gunsmithing drivers. Wheeler has a couple of big sets. I thought one of them might have a specific driver for this take down screw.

i have been collecting , repairing , + researching the Remington 5teen series for over six decades + have never found a commercial source for the tool -

schutzen-jager, I believe you. I tried a house key with a flat. Pretty close in thickness but it just twists out of the slot. I found a thread on another forum where improving accuracy was being discussed. You had a link to a source for a takedown screw with a socket head for a 513T. I was able to purchase one of those. I thought I would give it a try too.

try contacting this ebay seller ne makes allen head replacement bolts that fit + work great - he has none listed now but he will make them for you at a very fair price - a few years back i posted pictures of modified screw drivers on RFC forum -

I worked on F14 Tomcats when I was in the Navy. The Tomcat had some panels held on with what they called "high torque screws". The tool slot resembles the 513 takedown screw. Maybe one of these can be found to fit?

food for thought-

it is unlikely Remington would use a screw on a common .22 rifle that requires a special tool to turn.

if they did, it would seem likely such a tool would be if not available at least it's existence would be known to the rimfire community by now.

every other .22 rifle of contemporaneous vintage that I own/have owned can use a coin. My 514 needs a nickel.
