Ok I made a post earlier about my Laure Mount with the Aimpoint. I never applied the blue locktite that was included. Could this be the reason the scope isn't staying zero? Is it worth it to remove the scope and apply the locktite then resight the gun in, or should I just keep it on and sight it in again? thanks for your time.

Follow the instructions from Larue.


WORD!

Degrease the four screws with rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover along with the ring halves (I did).

Make sure you tighten the bottom screws FIRST and that the clamps are fully seated and bottomed out. This will eliminate nearly all radial movement from front to back.

The front/back radial movement WILL cause for a wandering vertical zero. Tightening the bottom screws first will eliminate this. Again, tighten the bottom screws FIRST, then alternately tighten thte top.

Use blue locktite for good measure on the screw threads.

Not just LaRue, if it has screws always degrease or remove all oil and use blue loktite.
