I have been told by several folks and have read on the Internet to use Green Loctite when attaching shade tubes to red dots and similar "non-permanent" fixtures. I was told that the application of a heat gun would release the Loctite.

Well, I just tried to do that to a piece of Carbon Fiber tube on the front of an Aimpoint. I got it about as hot as I would dare and it would not budge!

Hmmm. Luckily I can live with the carbon fiber tube in this particular case.

Be careful!

Dave (and the OP Bill Messenger). The tight fitting dowel trick worked a treat.

Excellent.

Thanks so much.

Greetings,

I use LocTite 620 quite often.

The DataSheet says heat to 450F to disassemble bonded parts.

I doubt the optic device would tolerate 450F.

Cheers,

Dave

Locktite 620 can be used on barrel liners, so it's tough to get loose.

Blue or purple for anything you may want to remove at some point. 222 comes to mind. And use the tiniest amount you can get away with.

Note, when they spec a product for 'small screws', they're talking 1/4".
