Keeping Grip Screws Tight
Got a set of Hogue G-10 grips inbound for my 229 which came with E2 grips. First time mounting grips with screws. Looking for advise on keeping them tight. Loctite maybe?

Laugh all you want, don't pull any muscles, that ache in your side will go away. Sounds crazy but this has worked for me.
Yes, grease, Mil Comm TW-25b to be exact. I put a dab on the threads, snug them good but not over tight and I'm good to go. No thread lockers that could possibly lead to problems if the wrong type is used. No nail polish. Just good 'ole firearms grease.
I believe the theory behind the grease is that it fills the voids of the threaded surfaces and act as a dampening material against vibration which is what causes screws to work loose.
I too, thought it was a bit nutty at first but it has worked for me. I was quicker to try this out before using a thread locker and I have not seen the need to go any further.
