    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.
