Nope you don't.
i am doing a screw build and was wondering if i have to tap the receiver along with the trunions?
when putting everything togethor for the final time should i use lock tight?? red or blue?
Use whatever the permanent stuff is. I forget the color.
i use blue for the test run,for final assembly i use the red.Originally Posted by Red_Dragon
thanks for the info. how have screw builds been for you guys?
also should i tourqe the screw at all? i am afraid that it will strip the threads
screw builds have worked for me, using a screw makes sence to me but Im not as hard core as some.
yes you can put the squese on the screws as long as there are three (3) complete threds before you put the goodentight wrench on there. this will help to keep you from pulling the threds out. muttman
just snug up the screws,the locktite will do the rest.i have severall short pistols that really rattle when there fired,never lost a screw yet.Originally Posted by Red_Dragon
I used silver solder paste on the two screw builds that I did before I switched to rivets. I traded them to a buddy and he has put 6k of Wolf through one of them without issue. I think that it had a melting temp around 500F. Don't have to worry about solvents weakening the loctite if you throw your gun in the parts washer to clean it. The other has only been test fired as he made the claim to his wife that the reason he needed both was that the other gun was for her so she won't let him shoot it now.
