Directions say, "Apply thread locking compound on the exposed threads and replace clamp and tighten while pushing sight forward againt cross slot." now i didnt use any of this stuff i just bolted it to the rear.

Its something I would do in the future whenever you pass a home improvement store, just go pick up some blue thread locker. Blue doesn't require heat to remove it, Red does.

you put it on the existing threads so that when you tighten the screw/bolt the threadlock will go into the threaded area (it acts like a sealant). you won't need much, use the blue and you'll see when it comes out (kinda watery).

it's the blue stuff... not on a gun or sight but you get the idea... put it on the threads that are gonna go into the threaded area and tighten as normal.
