Glock 17, trijicon RM. Should I use thread locker on the attachment screws?

I'm of the opinion you should degrease and put a small amount of blue loctite on anything you don't want to move.

I would, or grease. Grease works really well except im not sure if the heat will cause it to run off

I would. I'd recommend purple though.

I would only use the lightest drop, then I'd paint the screws with fingernail polish to see if they're moving or not.
 



If you put too much loc-tite on those screws it'll be a real nightmare to get them out.

Purple (low strength) or blue (medium strength) loctite should be used on any screw on a gun.  Never red!!!!!!!

I did, but not the tightest one, I keep a tube of blue handy.

I put one drop of blue on each of the screws for mine, and it hasn't budged. Agency Arms recommends it, so I'd say its fairly common practice.

Nothing like melting your RDS into a puddle of plastic to get the Loctite to release.
