xamoel Posted May 16, 2010 Share Posted May 16, 2010 hey guys, as you might know, i purchased a trulock tactical choke for my M4. as probably every choke it comes loose after some rounds fired through it, it takes about 50 rounds or so. not very loose, but noticably. so far i used loctite 8151, a special aluminium based anti-seize spray for high temperatures, to prevent the choke from rusting or becoming stuck in the threads of the barrel due to lead and debris. now i recently bought loctite 243, which is heat resistant up to 150° celsuis (thats about 300°fahrenheit), and i'm thinking about putting it on the choke (at least a bit) to ensure it won't self loosen again. do you guys think that's a good idea? some points to consider: -is the heat resistance enough? -will it prevent debris from getting stuck in the threads (i guess not) ? -can i use it together with the choke lube (loctite 8151) ? or do you have a much better way of holding this chokes in place? (except overtightening of course) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
