another question kevin

sorry!

i recently installed my accu-strut w/ the locktite supplied. everything was great until i really looked over my rifle and noticed that the rod of the accu-strut is not perfectly lined up with my barrel. now, i would say it is only slightly off (like maybe 5-10 degrees) & not super noticeable.

will this affect performance at all? is it worth it to pull it off and do it over?

thanks & sorry for so many questions.

No problem, my friend. No, that condition should have no effect on performance.

thanks for your answer. but, i think it just bugged me too much. i ended up removing it anyway (which was FAR easier than i imagined), which leads to one more question:

i ordered some 620 loctite from midway. the only trouble is, the product # was (62015) vs. the (62005) you had sent me. is there any difference? (the guy at midway did his best to research, but couldn't find anything). will this loctite work fine or will i need to buy some more directly from you?

thanks for your patience and excellent customer service. it must be frustrating to put up with knuckleheads like myself.

It's the same material, only difference is the amount.

Yes, it is no problem to remove a strut even secured by Loctite. It's different from securing a thread. The strut is a big cylinder, so that type of Loctite was chosen as a cylinder retaining compound vs, a threadlock compound.
