Its not exactly something I plan on removing that often, but was wondering if most of you just screw it on tight- or use a drop of blue 242 on the screw.

Thanks for your input.

>> Additional question <<
What about those of you with SIR's and RAS-II's, Loctite or not?

I've never had my #40 come loose,,,But I did have the rear nut on my #38ex come loose so I put drop of Loctite 222MS on all of them to be safe................UNDERDOG

Yes, I used the Loctite that came with my SIR 50.

Screws on my ARMS 22M68 loosened after a few hundred rounds. Now I use blue Loctite on my all my ARMS products. Works like a charm and it's easy to remove when necessary.

Yes. Red 271.

Dumb question: Do you have to mount the #40 BEFORE installing the rail system (I have a #50), or after?

zyx5432 Either or - it will not matter

You might as well have welded your #40 to the receiver.

Comes off with a screwdriver - no problems. It's the only grade that doesn't vibrate off. YMMV. edited to add: There are different grades of red. 271 was the only "high strength" threadlocker, according to LocTite's product info, that's not permanent and doesn't require heat for removal.

Thanks for the heads up on the 271, I'll pick up a tube at the parts store tomorrow.
