Brownells (among others) has a video on loctite on firearms. I dumped a lot on my BFD to try to keep it on. There are videos of Indian Creek design BFD. Better design than mine, but the same principle. They just hand tighten and let loose. They don't show what happens to the BFD, but I know from experience what happens. But I took heed of their advice, heated it up and got all the loctite out. I took a pair of channel locks to it and tightened it up. I won't know how well it well it holds since I'm not paying $0.60/rnd to go play. But it was bothering me, so now it's not. The best option would be the https://www.surefire.com/products/suppressors-division/muzzle-devices/warden/ but at $180, it's not for me.

I don't know jack about loctite on guns / gun parts, but I'm just about an expert on loctite on aircraft / aircraft parts. If you don't remove any and all old thread sealant (reguardless of manufacturer) it just don't word the wy you want it to.
