Has anyone here ever tried to use a strong magnet, e.e.: a cow magnet epoxied into the stock to retain a barrel in lieu of a screw, barrel band or wedge/pin? Got a project involving a 5 1/2" barreled rifle and it seems to me that this might work. I had the experience once of firing a 12" New Englander without the wedge pin. As near as I can tell, the barrel raised up a bit under recoil and then dropped back into the stock with no harm. An hour later I found it with a magnet on a stick, but that magnet gave me an idea... What do you think about the idea of using a magnet to keep the barrel in place instead of a pin or wedge?
