Default loctite question

I think I screwed up. I am installing a new dovetail sight in my shotgun and used loctite super glue blue instead of loctite thread locker blue. Do I need to reinstall?

Opinions?

Thank you all for the look and I would appreciate some ideas.

If everything is where you want it then just leave it be.

I wouldn't worry about it unless it moves or comes loose. If it comes loose then you can clean it & apply the proper Loc-Tite.

Most dovetail sights are interference fit and don't usually require additional fasteners. Albeit, I have never done sight work on a shotgun.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
