Heavy recoiling handguns (Read, Ruger, three-screw, Blackhawk, Flat Top, .44 Magnum), before the invention of nylon lock-screws, were notorious for becoming loose from recoil. Green loctite would have been outstanding back then. I once sent in a Ruger Super Blackhawk as per Ruger request, to have a new cross-bolt retaining screw fitted and they replaced all the screw in the gun with new nylock screws.
Locktite has legitimate uses on guns, with consideration on what strength is required.
