Best loctite for paintball usage

I need to loctite a feedneck into place, and was wondering what would be a good loctite to use for this.

I've got a few different red loctite choices, each for various things, but what is the best/most common for paintball?

I use a red bottle, blue liquid. It is 'removable' and have used it it for 10+ years on my equipment.

Never ever nurver use red Loctite unless you want the part mounted permanently. Blue Loctite is the stuff. I use #242 for paintball, and usually get it from Ace or Home Depot.

Here's the asinine part, and why you should be careful: I have a red tube of blue loctite, a red bottle of blue, a blue bottle of red, and a red bottle of red. Why the **** does the packaging not match the product within?!

Blue Loctite is definitely what you want to use.

They also have blue tubes of blue. I hate borrowing loctite for this very reason.

ATS used Loctite 410 on everything at their factory. It seems pretty damned tenacious.

If the feed neck is a loose slip fit, use red; for all else I use an amount of blue relative to how tight the threads are.

I should try 222ms. Easier to find in stores than the 567 I've been using on fittings. For those who don't know, it's basically liquid teflon tape. Seals, protects, locks, and easily disassembled like tape, but excess just wipes off so no white "hairs" everywhere.

It's a fine thread.

Ccm feedneck to a gen-e breech. It threads in, but doesn't tighten past a certain point and easily loosens up.

It is the correct threading.
