Ok.   Got my Kodiak Pardini mount from KC today.   I got it tight on the gun but am questioning how much Blue loctite to apply and where.     The main screws seem to hold the mount on the gun perfectly, leaving me to wonder what the purpose is of the tiny set screws on the same side.  

Any suggestions about where and what to loctite and what those tiny tiny set screws are for is appreciated.   I want to put the scope on once, with no movement.  

Additional question.   Which tubes will fit the Sig Romeo 5?

I have 4 of them that I bought new. 2 on SP and 2 on HP . I used zero loctite on any of them and they have held fine for thousands of rounds. I have purchased a number of used ones that were loctited at the screws immediately stripped out. I've had to replace a number of screws because they were held with loctite. I personally don't think it's necessary at all.

Thanks. KC just got back to be.   This is what he said as well.

Did KC explain the tiny setscrews? They're for making the sliding locking piece fit the lower angle on the rail. You want the hook end to tuck under the rail so it touches cleanly at one edge. This ensures the mount is being pulled down onto the top of the rail, as well as locked on front-to-back. It's a really nice design, that the Aimpoint mount doesn't have.

The way I adjust is to loosen the setscrews, very slightly tighten the through bolt, then snug the setscrews until the moving piece just starts to pull the mount tight to the rail. Then snug the throughbolt fully. Done. You shouldn't have to touch the setscrews until you install on a different rail, or maybe in a different location.

He did, but it is always helpful to have it explained again, in a different way.
