    Yoke screw works out after 60 rounds ?

    Looking for some advice. I have a taurus 44 that I am using for T&P2 barricade matches and 1500 shoots. However recently the yolk screw works lose after 60 or so shots. I thought about using blue loctite but wasnt sure. Would this be ok as spares are hard to come by in the uk?

    regards

    Chris

    Blue loctite should work just fine. I've used it for many things on firearms for years.

    You sure you're using it in a match? You might want to hold onto some ammo.

    I have a model 66 but its in for repair so this weekend I have to use my .44 . I got myself a belt that holds 6 speed loaders and a ammo holder with a further 26 rounds. i was going to shove a couple full speed loaders in my dump pounch and use them on the early stages then go for the ammo on the belt. It isnt Ideal but my 66 broke a few weeks back and the parts take about 4 weeks from taurus and then another 2 weeks to clear customs so Im stuck with it. I would have run my Taurus .454 dont know if you have that modle in the US. From the blurb in the booklet it looks like its a UK market export model (6 shot .45acp on stella clips) I just havent got to grips with the taurus clips. They seem flimsy to what I remember the old Smith and Wesson ones were like.

    These are the Taurus revolvers im currently running

    Top ones a model 44
    Middle is a model 66
    Bottom is a model 456

    unfortunatly due to UK law we must have a 12" barrel and a rod or wrist brace fitted so it is none concelable and 24" overall. Its not ideal but I can still compete

    It's really not unusual for a heavy-recoiling gun to loosen the screw. Blue Loctite will hold it. It affects virtually ALL brands of revolver, too.

    Cheers it worked a treat. I dropped a little locktite on the treads let it set then ran 100 rounds of .44mag through it. No issues and the screw hasnt moved
