I do have several rifles, and somehow always wanted a .458.  Maybe sometime................. :)

Probably all I would take down would be a few targets at the range or destroy some wood in the woodpile!    ;D

I purchased my O-rings from this vendor on eBay:

WHY NOT USE A LITTLE LOCK-TITE BLUE?

Some guys had trouble with the Blue "grabbing" too tight and ending up stripping their screw heads.

Now this may be a different  story with Yankee's new and improved scews.

I've already put them in with Loctite ("Guntite") blue.  Don't plan to take them again unless there is an issue with trigger spring.  I guess we'll see, but I do have excellent gunsmith tools when needed, used mostly on my Savage 99 rifles.

Oink! (Or whatever a Guinea Pig says.)
I put a dab of blue LocTite on Yankee's screws when I installed them a couple of weeks ago.  The blue grade shouldn't present a dis-assembly problem, but as noted in other threads, LocTite recommends applying a little heat to the fastener in order to break the material's hold.  Just a few seconds with a hot soldering iron against the Allen wrench will do it.

I used the soldering iron on the screw but either way works better than no heat.

I forgot about the heat.  But then, I don't ust Locktite, I  just use fingernail polish and it works fine.
