    Has anyone ever used Loctite Blue for the front night sight screw on a Glock successfully? I do believe you are supposed to use Loctite purple # 222 but I've had issues getting some and it does have a "USE BY" date, so I'd rather blue...just not sure if it works on such small/fine threads.

    Thanks,
    paul

    The red does have it's place. This certainly is NOT one of them!

    :agree:

    I've used blue loctite on all my aftermarket pistol sights without a problem. None have ever come loose. On those rare occasions when I had to remove those blue loctited sights, firm pressure on the tool was enough to break the hold without harm to sights or slide.

    I use RED. ,
    Every set of sights I've bought, that have come with LockTight,
    it's always been red.

    I used Loctite blue...in my opinion it didn't need any Loctite at all. I'll post about my experience tomorrow night.
