    When adding any accessories to your mini-14 what loc-tite or thread locker do you use on the screws to keep them from coming loose?

    Something with medium strength, blue is the most common. In a pinch nail polish works too!

    As Vincent and Tri commented!


    BLUE! BLUE! BLUE! And use is sparingly. Like a "small" "small" tooth pick applied drop!
    Also take the time to do some research on "inch pound torque" specifications on the screws or fasteners.
    A lot of folks break screws by putting entirely too much torque on the screws and etc. Which on occasion can create a real problem if the screw breaks off in the weapon or mounts. Fingernail polish also works but you might want to use clear. They might think your funny using RED! :p
