I haven't had a problem yet, maybe just lucky so far?
Dogg, I don't see any reason to use Loctite on the CT setscrews. They do not loosen under recoil (at least not noticeably and they don't have to be super tight) from my experience. If they did loosen to the point where the two halves became visually separated (not flush against one another), I'd start with pink Loctite before using blue or just screw them down a little deeper.LCP_Dogg said:Oh..
Use some blue locktite on the set screws. Blue means you can still break it loose (don't use the Red kind!!)
Dan, thanks, I also sent you an email.CTCdesigner said:kraigster,
The lens can get dirty from shooting due to it's location close to the gun barrel. The more you shoot the sooner this can occur. Also, dirty ammo can speed this up. A good cleaning should get the crisp beam back. Also, don't use an excessive amount of oil as this can also foul up the lens. I like to use silicone grease for lube as it less messy than oil.
The threaded holes have brass inserts installed so no need to worry about wearing out the threads. If you loose one of the screws call CTC customer service and request a replacement. The screws can also be gotten from McMaster-Carr. They are 0-80 x 1/2" long socket head cap screws, p/n 91251A059 at $5.25 per pack of 25. I am sure a cheaper source can be found by a google search.
