Thread: Does anyone use blue loctite on their scope rings or rifle parts?

  1. #1

    Does anyone use blue loctite on their scope rings or rifle parts?

    Just wondering if anyone uses loctite on their rifles or scope mounts as added security against movement, etc? I mean the blue one that does not set, not the red one?

    Or should it not be necessary if everything is done correctly?

    Not a good idea mate, and this was the stuff that isn't ment to set.
    I'm currently looking for a new mount for that very reason.

    Never needed any, once the scope is on in the right place.

    Just make sure they are firm, never had one work loose but have probably left loose after tinkering around

    I was told to use new allen bolts which seemed quite a cost but over the last 10yrs it has remained in place faultlessly

    if you carefully heat loctite with heat gun you can remove screws.

    I never used to but after a recent incident with a Tikka 30-06 trigger assembly coming loose and the fact that Tikka triggers are only held in by one cap head bolt I now use loctite on that as I had an accidental discharge due to the trigger assembly being loose, which was not nice!

    Regards,

    never done it , shouldn't be required with quality mounts unless it's a shoulder cannon?
