    Solution to preventing the Operating Bolt from loosening up ?? After firing rounds, it backs out . Frustrating having to deal with it..TOO much torque and it will not move??:mad:

    Blue Permatex threadlocker?

    I use it on my motorcycle and on other applications when I don't want something rattling loose but I don't want it bonded so permanently that I can't get it off when I want.

    I'm assuming you mean bolt that holds on the charging handle on the carbine?
    If not, pay no attention to what I just said. :)

    I had the same issue with my 995TS...recently while replacing the site rails with after market aluminum rails that called
    for Loctite Blue on all the screws I also put some on the operating handle when I re-assembled the carbine...so far so good!!! I also have history snapping off bolts by over tightening!!!

    Even RTV silicone gasket sealer. I use it on carb throttle screws on my slant. It shakes and wallows out the threads, changes the adjustments.

    I tried the blue but it failed also, but it might of been old.

    Or you didn't let it cure or not enough. Blue works, there are other varieties of locktight as well, just don't use the permanent stuff.

    i found that spraying the charging handle plus the threads cut into the bolt assy with brake cleen or electrical contact cleaner helps keeps the charging handle nice and secure . Think what is happening is gun oil is seeping into the threads not allowing it to stay secured

    Is there a torque spec for the charging handle??? Maybe I'll call their tech adviser in the AM!!
