I'm sorry, I'm trying to remove the barrel block pivot bolt. Is is right hand thread? And any tricks? I have side-to-side play. Do I need to shim it?

It is also loctited in place and the only way I can get them out is with an impact screwdriver tool. "it's a standard right hand thread."

Ok, Rich,
I got the bolt out. My rifle will probably never be the same, that bolt was very, very, difficult to remove! I really did a # on my impact driver. Do you know where I can get a replacement bolt because it ruined the head? I'm going to try to shim the side of the barrel to take the play out. How do I tighten the bolt, the same way I removed it? I don;t know if my impact driver will take it. Thanks for the info.

It goes back in the same way it came out. I don't know if Gamo would sell you one or not you could call them and ask.

Thanks Rich,
I got it back together. I sanded the edges of the bolt, shimed the block, and lubed. It's a lot better. Yea, I have had terrible luck dealing with Gamo on anything. I would rather just fix them myself!
