    BLUE, if you ever want to easily remove it again.

    I always use Red as I want mine to stay on until I am ready to remove it with a little heat. Same for front sights.

    I use Red 262 NOT 272. There's a difference.

    Blue. Easiest to use a non-captured guide rod. Captured guide rods are only of value if you have several made up.

    There is also a Purple called Small Thread Locker but the number is worn off the bottle. We used it on #2&3 screws that were normally finger tight but didn't want to fall out. Think eye glass screws.
