View Full Version : My grips keep coming loose
January 26, 2005, 01:12 PM
The grips on my Springfield Armory 1911 A1 GI issue keep coming loose. I tighten the screws as much as I can on the grips without splitting them and they still start to come loose after I shoot 2 or 3 clips in the gun. They don't fall out or anything...yet, but the grips do start to come loose.
How can I solve this little annoyance

You might give some teflon plumbers tape a try.

Best "fix" is a tiny dab of either Loctite Blue, or fingernail polish on each screw.
This will prevent vibration from loosening the screws, yet still allow easy disassembly.

Loctite small screw threadlocker, I keep 2 tubes around all the time as I always find a need for it.
