Have you guys noticed if the screws come loose on your Sage ebr on the op rod guide. Just went to do some cleaning on my rifle and was amazed to find the bottom op rod guide screw loose. What can I do to keep it from backing out and thus affecting accuracy.

Make it absolutely oilfree with a solvent and then torque it to the required specs.

+1 on BLUE Locktite. Don't over do it though. One or two very small dabs are all that you need.

Just want to make sure you use BLUE and NOT RED. Using red on an alumnum piece is death.
Well it's not exactly death but your going to have to heat the h%#l out of the screw to get it out!GI8 The guide ain't aluminum.GI1
