Im looking at getting a bcm upper. I want to put a troy flip up rear sight on it. What is the recommended torque on for that? Is everyone using loctite, if so, which one? I want that thing to be SOLID

use the blue loctite and you are GTG

I got a fat wrench, is there not a specific poundage?

ask Troy , I have never seen any published data.

I don't know of the specific Inch in/lb for it... I'm sure Troy can give you specific data if you feel it is necessary

I have always turned the bolt until snug, then one additional 1/4 turn to torque

Hardware is a slot head screw. A little past snug should do fine.

how well do they stay solid. if i go this path it will be a truck gun. so i don't want it to rattle loose.

A drop of blue loctite and hand tight ("snug") plus a quarter turn won't go anywhere unless you put considerable effort with a screwdriver towards it.

You're more or less weakly glueing the threads.

I have three Troy rear folding BUIS and my oldest one is already over six years since I mounted it with medium strength blue Loctite 242 as stated on the Troy instructions.

I just snug it then tightened (not past 1/4 turn) with my hollow ground gunsmith screwdriver.

Here's Troy's instructions and manual for the rear folding BUIS BattleSights.
