    So I was googling and looking at youtube because it came with 5 screws, 3 long and 2 short screws. From what I’ve gathered the short screw is meant for the forward most hole, and the 3 long screws are for the rear 2 (closest to the trigger) and the last long screw is for the one right before the short screw. And it seemed to work at first when I did a dummy run (though I didn’t torque it all the way, just screwed it in until I felt the wrench stop and then felt if the screws got in the way of the bolt), but as I was evenly torquing all of the screws. I noticed that I couldn’t torque the short one at all to the required pressure.

    Now I’ve added blue loctite on all 4 screws. So even though I didn’t get to torque it to the correct pressure, I feel like the loctite should help it become secure. I also tried to pull the mount off with a good amount of force just to see if it would come loose, but it felt very solid. So, I guess my question is did I fuck up the screw placement? And if I didn’t, do I have anything to worry about in the future?

    What does this mean? Like it blocked the bolt or it didn’t catch the receiver threads or it stripped or what?
