    Should I use blue or maybe green loctite on the screw of my front sight?

    Blue works fine. If you use green, you need to be specific as to the number. I think it is #609 that is low viscosity for press fit parts, and #290(?) that is OK.

    I clean the slide, sight and screw with Berryman's B-12 carb cleaner and use red Locktite on the head, the threads and all faying surfaces of the sight.

    It wouldn't come off even if the screw wasn't there!

    I've used both blue and red, with careful attention to cleaning, as lethal tupperware points out, with complete success.

    Make sure any final adjustment is a tightening adjustment.

    Let sit at room temp for 24-hours and you're good to go! :thumbsup:

    Blue will work fine. Just be sure to degrease and clean well.
