“BeemanR7”I don’t own an Impact yet, so I can’t advise you on the particular problem with the rubber thing. I just can’t believe FX has not yet resolved the barrel screw issues!!! There’s NO EXCUSE for this FX!!! Fix it Damn IT!!! Nobody should have to babysit that darn barrel retention screw. Somebody’s going to get hurt. Ernest Rowe came up with solutions to this problem long ago. Why have they not yet been implemented?

I did not do a search on the issue are you saying this has happened before??

Yes. Ernest posted a video where he drilled and tapped a tiny hole in the flange of the barrel retention bolt and inserted a grub screw to keep the barrel retention bolt from working loose. It’s a known problem and a known fix. I can’t believe FX is still shipping new guns with barrel retention bolts that come loose and allow the barrel to slip out. You’re lucky you weren’t hit in the eye with that rubber bumper.
