    two months ago I took my yhm cobra apart for cleaning. when I reassambled it, i put a little of red loctite on the thread now is it stuck too tight and I have tried most anything to take it apart to clean but it wouldn't come out. what should I do now? should I send it back to YHM?

    Apply heat. Get a little propane torch and heat it up fairly good. It will loosen the loc-tite. Remove it while it's still hot.

    Take it out and shoot it. While it is hot try and take it apart. As stated above. Why loc-tite?

    If you want to ensure you don't muck up the finish on the can apply the heat indirectly. Heat a steel rod or bolt until glowing red and then apply the rod or bolt to the part that is stuck. It might take several heatings to get the part warm enough for the red loc-tite to soften enough to release, but it will save the finish.

    My trident unscrews from the 3 lug mount when I shoot it. I just keep an eye on it and make sure it is tight after every mag or so.
