Admittedly, we did kinda hijack the thread. But I can see exx1976's point, if you're not careful, whatever is on the threads of your barrel will end up on the threads in the can.

Use Vibratite VC3.

https://www.amazon.com/Vibra-T...admate/dp/B008D6GHY6


It doesn't harden like Loctite, rather it stays as a rubbery polymer once it dries. I have used it on my Osprey 45 with pistols and my MPX and it works perfectly. It provides just enough extra friction to keep the can from coming off unless you want it to.

It's also very easy to clean up the threads with isopropyl alcohol, so you are not going to damage the threads on your can by trying to scrape out old Loctite. It's not high temp rated like Rocksett, but my pistol cans don't get nearly as hot as my semi-auto rifle cans. So the temp range it works in had been just fine for pistols and for thread protectors.




I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle - victorious.

Was going to post this same thing. I use Vibratite on a lot of applications (handguard screws, BUIS, etc).

I use Teflon tape for thread protectors, and silencers.
It's heat resistant and you can put as much/little you need to get the job done. Cleans off rather easily too.





I love it here!
