Not a bad idea, my MBUSes have a little blue on the screw.

I don't use anything. I use my rifle a lot. Hunting, off roading, etc. In other words I beat her up quite a bit and my mbus is still solid as a rock and dead on target.

yup just a dab of loctite on all fasteners. keeps em from backing out under vibration. keeps everything snugged in when atving
