Default What to coat trigger adjust screw with?

I just setup a rem 700 trigger down to 3# last night. What do you guys like to coat them with to keep them from moving? I have used clear finger nail polish but don' trust it. I was using bohning fletching glue cause its gooy and seems to stay. Just curious what the smiths use on here.

A little coating of the lowest strength loc-tite. I don't know the number but I have some in my loc-tite kit somewhere. I think it sez "serviceable" on the little bottle.

Or you could just spot weld it. LOL

Clear finger nail polish. I also use it on my scope mount screws, sealing primers....

One warning--> when your wifestarts asking why her nail polish is missing, just leave the scene.

I used that for years, but started noticing it chiped away sometimes. Also, you have to totally degrease the area when using it. So looking for alternatives. Thats the reason I tried bohning glue.

There are about 3 different colors of loctite .You don't want to get the wrong one .I think there is blue,red and green.One of them is bad to the bone if you use that you have to cook it out.I am not sure which color is which strength be careful.

I just had some trigger work done on my Win model 70. I watched the smith do the adjustment down to about 3#, but didn't notice him putting any kind of loc-tite after completion. He had to remove the glue or what ever it was before he could make the adjustment. Should I remove the barrel from the stock and put some loc-tit on the screws?
