Anyone have any issues with a Raddlock backing out in it's own? I didn't think I needed to use any of the included o rings but would using one between the lock and the lower receiver help with this?

Anyone got any ideas? Thanks for any help you can give.

The o-ring keeps tension on the internals to keep them from rattling loose.

Yes, but you can just tighten it back down. It takes a long while and a lot of shooting to have the AR Raddlock back out on its own. I use the O-ring, but that has nothing to do with it. It is the inner threaded button that is slowly turning each time you operate the Raddlock. That part doesn't contact the O-rings in any way.

You could use a little blue Loctite if you want. That'll make it tough to back out the Raddlock on purpose, though, for when you shoot rimfire or leave the state.
