The darn things need to be made tight every time I shoot this gun. I can't imagine this is common? What say you Les Baer owners?
I had to do the same thing on my Comanche. Grips would start shifting after about 30 rounds. O rings took care of it.Try some o-rings. They will keep them tight and you don't have the crank the screws down... just finger tight with a screwdriver is all you need.
Where do I get those little o rings?Try some o-rings. They will keep them tight and you don't have the crank the screws down... just finger tight with a screwdriver is all you need.
Hardware store, Amazon, Home Depot, Lowe’s.... I can’t remember the size but small enough to snugly fit the screw shaft.Where do I get those little o rings?
I think im going to try the bushings first. I hate the idea of thread lock.Do not use a traditional thread locker compound, but I have used this with good results. I use a very small amount of VC-3.
I bought a 100 pack of what Log recommended a few years ago and have only gone through a couple. They last a long time even if you remove grip panels for frequent cleanings.The metric size 1.5mm X 3mm works a lot better. Available in Buna, Vitron, or Silicone.
To view, click on metric, 1.5mm, 3mm, and view the material/quanity/price. Or check out the dash sizes and see just how inexpensive they really are.
Same with the metric size- they allow screws to sit flushThe Challis O-rings are thinner, and therefore less durable. But that thinness means that they don't cause the proud screw issue.
The #60 O-rings from Lowes are thicker, and more durable, but your screws won't sit flush. These ones are cheaper, and they can be bought over the counter.
Both work, so you just pick your poison.
Many hardware stores carry little o-rings. Take a grip screw with you and find a size that just fits on the threads.Where do I get those little o rings?
