My Stock and foregrip keep coming loose I dont tighten them up too much because I dont know how tight 

you can make them before they crack. 

 

IM thinking of using silicone rubber on the bolts.

Any ideas or other  things to try?

I emailed the factory twice and havent heard back yet.

Until then I  will just take a screw driver to the range

 

thanks rickl

Silicone rubber is a glue, don't do it.

try blue lock tite on the threads, and only the threads

With the correct Loctite the screws can be remove easily but the vibration will not loosen them. Sillycon will be a big mess...

Keep it simple, try a shakeproof washer between the wood and bolthead. The kind with all the little teeth. Might need new bolts if threads are wallowed.

Lock washers are made for metal to metal, are a lot heavier and require more torque to tighten than shakeproof washers with all the little teeth that can bite into a walnut stock and a stock screw to keep things from vibrating loose.
