... is there really anything wrong with leaving it off?
The clip guide is a little loose on my rifle, so I figured I'd replace the roll pin and reinstall the guide using blue Loctite to keep it secure before it just fell off and possibly get lost. Then I thought why even put it back on? The only reason I can see keeping it would be so I could use an empty clip as a bolt hold, but I don't have an empty clip. I do not plan on competing in service rifle matches, and I may eventually install optics and I'll need to remove the guide again.
Is there any good reason to put it back on, other than it will look odd if I don't?
