Mounting the scope on my Furious 9.5. Would you recommend Loctite on the screws from the base to the ring tops? I bought a Raven takeoff from Wyvernes. I can't find any torque specs on the scope rings or the base like a rifle. I have been notorious in the past to over tightening anything and stripping things out. Now I'm really trying to be careful and not ruin anything (again). :(
Thanks

When I put my new scope and rings on I waited until I zeroed the scope. After zeroing I removed the nut off each ring base applying loctite and retightening that nut before loosening the other one. I have tactical rings which has 2 screws on each side on top of each ring. I removed one at a time and added blue Loctite until I got 'em all done. Rechecked zero as I went....good to go.;)

I read that too.....inche lbs. No I didn't. I tightened them extra snug and then gave it just a tad more. Careful though....it's aluminum or either cast and will strip out easy.

Definitely blue Loctite on every screw involved with optic mounting. 14 inch pounds is generally safe.

I do loctite the base to weapon but nothing on the rings. No torque wrench either, just finger tight with short end of Allen key in hand.
My reasoning is that as long as I can easily access the bolt, I can check the tightness and do that regularly every time I shoot.
