I use Challis bushings and do not use any loctite as it is not needed with the higher torque value. I've never had a single issue with anything coming loose including grip screws with the Challis system, by far the best way to go. On standard bushings you will need to use loctite.

We use red Lock Tight and stake them. They never come loose.
Red? What if someone wants to make a change to slim bushings?

I've never understood locktite talk, I've carried and shot 1911's since 2006 and never had a bushing back out or even get loose.

Using the Red Locktite isn't a problem. If you need to remove it, just put a soldering iron in the bushing let it heat up and it comes right out. We never had problems with just staking them in. I've never had a staked bushing come loose. But most owners don't have a staking tool

I thought we were talking about barrel bushings, which I have not had to use Loctite on!

Apparently, my attempt at humor failed.

The thread itself (and the interpretations of) are amusing. Or, I'm just really bored on a Friday afternoon... ;)
