    I have done the F&B and had good luck with that. However I do need to tighten up the extractor screw each time I shoot. Do I need to remove the screw completely and clean off the threads befor I use the locktight? Or will the locktight set O.K. without cleaning off the threads? Thanks. Tom :)

    For best results clean the threads.

    You should clean and degrease the threads before applying the loctite. It may not be necessary but it definitely won't hurt anything.

    A tiny bit of loc-tite on the threads is all you need.

    clean screw with isopropyl alcohol, let air dry, put a drop of blue medium-strength loc-tite on the threads, and then tighten it up.

    that should do you.
