929 screws coming loose

My 929 has about 1000 rounds through it. In that time every screw on it has come loose at least once. The crane screw almost fell out. I was just dry firing it and the cylinder release was wobbling around. I tightened that one and the rear sight screw that was also loose. I have shot a lot of S&Ws and have never seen this before. Anyone else have this problem?

yes, including the strain screw backing out. My working theory, as is the case with everything on these guns, is tolerances on the tools is being let go to far.

I use a tiny drop of blue loctite, though I hate to, and it has resolved them backing out. I think permatex might be slightly better, something a little rubbery but haven't bothered.

I had the same thing happen to mine... first the strain screw backed out. Then the rear sight screw started backing out.

When I get some time I am going to clean and blue loctite every screw on the dang thing.

Bluuuuuuue loctite....blue! Blue!

I use a little dab on the strain screw and crane screw. Half a dab on the side plates and the cylinder latch. Oh and you need to let it dry....I never cycle the action until the screws have had time to dry. From Harleys to revos...it just works.
