    So trijicon contacted me and told me to use green loctite 290 instead. So I am gonna try that. Do you apply it just like regular loctite a little on the thread then install? It says to use green 290 on pre assembled screws.

    Green loctite 290 is a 'wicking' thread locker - it will seep through the threads via capilary action and sets. Red and Blue are 'anaerobic' threadlockers - they will set in the absence of air as they fill the voids between the threads on tightened fasteners.

    According to the data shee t'green' sets via the same action - The product cures when confined in the absence of air between close fitting metal surfaces and prevents loosening and leakage from shock and vibration. The product can also fillporosity in welds, castings and powdered metal parts.

    Also on the data sheet: For Assembly 1. For Blind Holes, apply several drops of the product down the internal threads to the bottom of the hole

    Notice this says 'for assembly' versus 'for pre-assembled threaded parts with through hole' - I read someplace else the the green IS NOT recommended for use on PRE-ASSEMBLED THREADED PARTS IN BLIND HOLES

    Hope this helps.

    I don’t think there is going to be an issue. I use blue loctite for all of my sight installs. They’ll sit over night and then off to the range the next morning. No issues with lubrication affecting the thread locker.

Is it possible for the clp to affect the red loctite in the sight since it hasn't been 24 hours yet to dry all the way?
