    quick locktite question

    I was wondering what is the very best locktite? I want to keep those deflector screws nice n tight! I know the manual has a suggestion, but has someone found something better?

    The deflector screw hole is threaded with a helicoil, which has loctite on it. You deflector won't be coming out any time soon.

    What am I thinking of? Uh, that plastic deflector with the two bolts on the inside of the receiver... phew... brain sludging as I write. Help!! Well, they came loose and I tightened them.

    the ejector are you thinking of?

    ohhh the ejector. LOL. It's metal, not plastic. Most of the guys here use 242 for those.
