I'm embarrased to admit this but,,,,,,, while doing some shooting today I noticed the scope was maxed out for windage. Well shimming for elevation is one thing, but how do you fix windage. So I took the scope off and looked down the scope rail and noticed the barrel was pointing to the left. Not bent, but it looked as though the breech was machined off center. I put the breech in the vice, "protected of course" and bent the barrel so that it lined up properly. Since I did, the scope centers perfectly and the gun is even more accurate than before" and it was pretty accurate before.
So for all you at44 owners I suggest you take a quick look at how your breech and barrel line up.

You sure took the bull by the horns. I like your straight forward thinking.

Peenage...."straight forward"...very puny!!!
And Joe very brave as far as I am concerned... I don't think I have the cojones to stick one of my rifles in advice and bent it... unless I was very angry at it and wanted to mess it up out of vengeance.

I don't know if Joe is brave but he sees a problem and takes a straight forward approach to repairs, he doesn't see a problem he sees a solution.

Thanks wayne. But, according to the video at the lw barrel factory, thats all they do. Stick it in a contraption and pull on it and over straighten, then bend it back and if its straight, bobs your uncle. Besides it wasn't that far off. Probably 3/8" off center at the muzzle. But that was enough to make centering the scope impossible. My 22xxdisco bulild was out by the same amount and I did the same thing to it and it too shoots better and the scope is centered better.Almost the same no: of clicks each way. And also, what else are you gonna do with it ?
