I tried the o-rings with some success.  The right grip was loose after shooting two magazines instead of the usual one.

I would not be afraid of using the purple loctite now(low strength for small fasteners).  I was amazed at how much more heat the iron put on the the screws compared to the gun I was using.

At the machine shop when we had frozen screws/bolts we heated paraffin and let it drip down onto and  creep into the threads. It will come out easy as pie.
