    Anyone who has used VibraTite VC-3 on the screws have any issues with the screws backing out or getting loose? I was going to use blue loctite, but I want to try the Vibratite out.

    use vc3 it’s meant for external shock and vibration better than loctite blue or red

    Actually they can also do it with the MOS. However I’d just get the C&H plate.

    Got the C&H plate for both the Gen5 19 & 34 mos.
    G19 has an rmr and the G34 has a delta point pro.
    Used a touch of blue loctite on the threads and a small bead of
    fingernail polish on the screw head seam.
    Will take to the range this week and see how they hold up.

    I’m currently looking at buying the C&H Plate, how has yours and everyone’s been holding up?

    I would use the C&H with nail polish as recommended. The screws did back out.

    So just to clarify, does the C&H come with screws for the plate to mount to the gun AND screws for the RMR mount to the plate?

    Also, which screws do I use the nail polish on?

    From the website (because I couldn’t remember):

    “Comes with screws to attach an RMR and Holosun to the V3 Plate”

    From what I remember, you use the MOS screws to attach the plate/RMR to the slide. Sorry, it’s been awhile.

    I’m put the nail polish on the screws which attach the RMR/SRO to the plate. I haven’t had a problem with the plate to slide screws.

    Thank you for the reply, my question is, I thought the plate has additional holes to attach the mount to the gun... am I right on that? Therefore, will I have enough with my MOS kit?

    I’ll have to check on that later just to make sure. Hope someone can chime in prior.

    Sorry about the wait, busy weekend and CRS (can’t remember ****) on the brain.

    Why would you not use the MOS plate provided along with the Trijicon sealing plate? The MOS plate provides groves to match the slide serrations.

    I also think there is too much worry about torque. Just make the damn screws tight and don't go gorilla on it and use locktite. I haven't had any issues with any of my dots yet but all have less than 1000 rounds through them so far.

    The C&H is a better fit with more thread engagement. And torque specs are a good thing - if you have the ability to do it according to specs, why wouldn’t you?

    Someone asked earlier about how the VibraTite was holding up - mine is still rock solid about 2000 rounds and three months in.

    Can you answer the question about the use of MOS OEM screws or were they provided by C&H.

    I looked at mine yesterday and I believe the screws for attaching the C&H mount to the slide and RMR to mount are provided by C&H. I can’t remember if that’s accurate or not.

    I use Vibra-Tite on scope mounts. I've never had a problem with anything coming loose even with major calibers like 300 WM or 338 LM.

    Which Vibra-Tite? I see several different strengths? I’m assuming low strength?

    Sorry, just saw this. All the fasteners I used came with the C&H plate.
