LIKEWISE IF YOU HAVE THE COMP THREADED DOWN TO THE POINT THAT IS CANNOT MOVE INSIDE OF YOUR SLIDE, BACK IT OFF A TURN. IT IS A THREADED OBJECT, TIMING IN ANY SENSE IS THE SAME, LIKE HIGH END FIREARMS WHERE THE USE OF A SLOTTED SCREW IS CHOSEN FOR AESTHETIC REASONS. WHEN ALL OF THE SLOTS ARE ORIENTED TO THE SAME DEGREE, THE SCREWS ARE PROPERLY TIMED.
    My bad, I completely misread that. Thanks for the all caps response tho.

    Always entertaining, mildly offensive
    IANative: Indeed, when you grab Brent (or he grabs you), it feels like liquid unobtanium wrapped in rawhide... whereas Greg is just solid muscle wrapped in hate, seasoned w/ snuff and a little lead.

    People have asked me if I consider myself a good or bad person. The truth of it is, I don't know or care. I have been called both. I like to think I have saved more lives than I have ended. Either way, I can still sleep at night.
    SEMPER FI

    Mine came with 242, also but I have already bought a tube of VC-3 from Amazon. I used it on some small screws and it worked really well.
    Screws stayed tight and I did not need any extra force or heat to get them out.
    Just order a tube for personal use and have it on hand. Seems to be a better product to use on gun screws than standard Loctite. This is from
    a guy with 5 different kinds of Loctite already in my toolbox.

    Received it in March. The Loctite didn't work well, I'll have to get some VC3 and try reinstalling it.
