Simply put, I ended up getting a brand new Remington 870 Express Tactical (#81198) and I noticed that the choke tube, barrel clamp, and magazine tube were a little loose after using it at the range. From my understanding this is normal depending on the parts and that some Loctite can, for the most part, fix those problems. However, I'm unfamiliar with the process and was wondering what type of Loctite I needed to apply (blue, red, etc and the strength of it) on those areas and how to do so. That way I can keep the parts from coming loose from use, but still have the ability to break the shotgun down when needed.
