    Recently had some new mepro's installed on my G22 rtf2 and have been reading on here about "must use loctite on front sight". Well I took my to a local gun store and watched him install it. He didn't use any loctite, should I be worried and take it back?

    Take it back, and tell them it's coming loose already.

    You WILL want Loctite on those sights!!
    Blue will allow SOME latitude in adjustment prior to "curing"....once "cured", it CAN be moved/removed (with the proper tool and some CAREFULLY applied force....)
    Red will require the application of heat (heat gun, hair dryer) to the sealed threads after "curing" to facilitate adjustment/removal....
    Good luck!
