i want to use a thread locker but which do you all use/suggest?
loctite red or blue?
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.
i used Blue on mine while trying out a couple different springs.... once i figured out which one worked best for me i used the Red 262....
uh, is there a number, or just loctite blue?
i don't remember the number on the Blue, or if there was one.... i still have the Red bottle otherwise i wouldn't have known there was a difference myself....
Blue is 242.
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.
