I've used loctite on my PBs before but was wondering if anyone uses that stuff on their AG stock screws.

I just registered yesterday and said hello.  This is my first "real" post and all I can say is:

After listening to that song, I will never EVER forget to check my screws!

That is serious Zen advice for all manner of things in life.  Shooting, spousal relationships, anything mechanical, fishing, athletic pursuits of all kinds....

I think I just received a pearl of air gun wisdom that will save me hundreds of hours of frustration.

Thank you.

Good place to start for a newbie.
My RWS has been giving me fits, looks like it's time to check. Had it for years and never thought about it till now.
Thanks Pat

Enjoyed the song, and the important message.

I recently discovered my Ruger Yukon needs fairly close attention in this respect. But I haven't had my Hatsan 87 long enough to notice if it shares this problem. However, this was the first thing I checked after un-boxing it. And all were tight.

I heard this one day before my groups started opening up. My Crosman Phantom is zeroed at 20 yards, and at that range, it typically shoots them into one ragged hole. I checked my screws and found 2 of the stock screws, and 3 scope mount screws loose. So this little ditty saved me a ton of aggravation, thank you so much for posting it.  :D

Great post. And yep I just thought I'd check, and yep they needed a bit of tightening. Much better groups instantly! Will not forget this, thank you.

I sighted in my Ruger Air Hawk Elite II more than a half dozen times with a nice Bushnell
3x9x40 scope. From day to day it was shooting flyers now and then. I removed the screws
and secured them with blue lock tite and let is sit for a few days. No more flyers....Nice song
and voice... 8)
