    Gas plug keeps loosening

    Hey guys got the M out for some break in time and she ran great! Only problem was the gas plug that screws into the gas block and keeps the piston in place keeps loosening up. Is it ok to use a little medium locktite on this??

    I wouldn't, but that's just me.
    What torque are you running it down to? I had mine back out once, and started torquing it down after that.
    Same as an M14, crank on it, it'll be fine.
    Do you really think we want laws to be observed? We want them broken. There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. When there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be crimes that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants law-abiding citizens? Pass the kind of laws that can’t be observed, enforced, or objectively interpreted - and you create a nation of law-breakers.
