    This is for anyone using LOCTITE and still have problems with screws getting loose or backing out or having to use one so strong that it's difficult to get screws out, there is a solution, Vibra-Tite VC-3 Threadmate.

    Vibra-Tite VC-3 Threadmate is the best I've ever used if you follow the easy instructions. Plus you can take the screws out easy and re-install them several times before having to re-apply it again. It works great for the smallest of screws or the largest of bolts or screws.

    I built AR's for many years and this stuff is the best that I ever used and that would take the pounding of thousand's of rounds and the heat.

    For rifle shooters, it's the ultimate thread locker for the tiny scope or mount screws. It will eliminate loose screws form the heaviest of magnums.

    If your having problems with screws backing out from vibration or heavy recoil or you don't want your screws so tight that you break them, this stuff is for you. I hope this helps you.

    Great information thanks for sharing!

    Also remember loctite doesn't setup well on some materials other than carbon steel because of the lack of carbon content in the metal so the way around this is to always use a loctite primer as this adds the carbon needed for proper adhesion.

    HD-M,

    I just don't know. But the same company did, I don't know if they still do or not, make some in green color that was intended for compression fittings were there was no threads. I used it on AR barrel milled ends that just slide into the upper receiver and is held with a lock nut of some sort. It worked well but the main reason I used it was to fill any gaps or voids but it held tight. I hope this helps any at all. Ebay used to have everything made by that company.

    But I'll tell you what, I've had AR stocks that were held on to the buffer tube by one single screw and in 30,000 + rounds never got loose. To me that's awesome!

    This is the compression VIBRA-TITE I was speaking of.


    vibra-tite retaining compound
    Vibra-Tite anaerobic retaining compounds are designed to increase shear strength on non-threaded cylindrical metal assemblies. The liquid anaerobic material fills the voids between close-fitting metal parts and cures to a toughened thermoset-plastic which creates a solid one piece assembly. Retaining compounds seal joints against leakage and prevent corrosion. The materials have gained wide acceptance as a standard method for assembling press-fit and slip-fitted parts.

    Prevents corrosion

    I think the general purpose is what you want. The high strength is for large gaps.
