    Who Uses Loctite Blue On Their Grip Screws ?

    Last time out I had the PT 92 AFS in operation I was fortunate to notice that the top screw holding the Jarwan P Thai wood grip had gone AWOL. I was also lucky to find it on the floor of the range stall. When I reinstalled it at home I noticed that the amount of thread that those short screws grab is minimal to say the least. I'm a little leery as I do want to remove them periodically. What to do folks do?

    Never really had a problem with loose grip screws. I tend to tighten the screw until it stops and then increase pressure for an extra little 'bump' to cinch it down.

    I don't use locktite on grip screws but I can see how it would be useful for guns with grips made of wood or other materials that will crack if over tightened if there's a screw that tends to back out.

    Go Purple! Purple Loctite 222. It is designed for smaller screws and provides a light grip, just enough to prevent vibration walkouts. Very easy to unseat as needed. I use it all the time.

    TonyC2639: Nailed it I have used the blue in the past but also messed up a screw trying to remove for repairs. I Found the purple awesome hold with a release if needed.

    I used the blue on the pt92 that I had but the screws just never stayed put. A range session would always loosen them to the point that they would fall out, and that was on wood grips that I got from Taurus.

    Be sure when choosing Loctite, that you get the right stuff. They make threadlockers and adhesives and there's a big difference between the two. I'd tell ya' how I know but I'd have to revive this thread...............

    Primarily threadlockers are anaerobic adhesives which is why there is always air in the tube since they only cure in the absence of air and adhesives many times are cured in the air or sometimes now cured with UV light or chemical activators. I sold industrial adhesives and films in a former life. Jack of many trades...master of none.
