Hi All,

I have a set of Alex's red dot accessories and I really like them. 
They reduce the extraneous down range clutter and center the dot in the tube nicely.

I have multiple guns and use the two medium size holes. I share those with other guns as well but I find
that recoil in a 45 tightens the front ring and loosens the rear. Sometimes it's too tight to remove.

That said I'm finding that a shot of masking tape between the aperture and the the ring or tube is enough to keep it from seizing.

Black electrical tape should also work but could be gummy.

Thoughts?

Gaffers tape, commonly used by musicians is far less "gummy".

You could try some Teflon tape used for plumbing. It’s made for threads so it should work.

Could an O-ring work?

For the tight ring try a bit of grease - I used choke tube grease, but anything that is not runny should work.

For the loose ring a tiny dab of green loctite, but don't screw in the ring till it has dried - it will just add a bit of friction. Comes off with a heat gun or acetone.

I don't use the rings now, but did use them extensively on the Aimpoint H1's I was previously using.

I think Alex could rebate the aperture to allow the o-ring as there really isn't room for it now; insufficient thread engagement would result.

I'm happy with the spot of tape.

I am following this thread.  Trying to figure out how big is the problem we are dealing with here.  Bruce is absolutely accurate in stating that right hand twist barrels will lead to front getting tighter and shooter's end getting loser, especially on 45.   For that matter I personally developed a habit of checking shooter's side and tightening RBR every single string.  Now, front!  In all its reality, it becomes a maintenance issue.  It is a now routine for me, that every time I clean guns, I take front shade off (I mostly use 9000Sc dots these days), and clean lens.  I do not care about scratching shades / rings.  Aesthetics is not my thing, the functionality is!  So, if I need to use plastic tie wrap or even a wrench to unscrew ring or entire shade, I'm fine with it.  I understand, that I have advantage here.  Yet, components are robust enough to withstand tools abuse (with exception of thread conversion rings!).  With that, your feedback on the issue at hand is very important for me, and I appreciate all the feedback and suggestions.
