Okay, I'm a noob and here is a simple question (I'm more simple, that's why I need help ). I just received an ARMS40L-SP to mount on a flattop AR-15. Inside the box with the BUIS was a tube of Loctite (222MS) thread locker. Do you all Loctite this sight on or just tighten it down? It would seem that ARMS thinks it should be "locked" on. What say all of you?

I used the Loc-Tite on mine. I have not intention of it coming off accidently!!

Thanks, Mac! I didn't know how hard the Loctite would make the BUIS to get off later should I decide to switch out sights. The peace of mind would be worth it, though.

LocTite it. They have a bad habit of departing the rifle for parts unknown if the user does not do so.

LocTite it. Safer that way. It won't take a gorilla to pull it off if you ever want to.
For some reason, no ARMS product I've ever bought has come with LocTite. Not one. The last one I got was the 22M682. On that one ARMS specifically said not to LocTite it. Guess what I did.
