I have a new model SUPER BLACKHAWK HUNTER 7.5" barrel, maybe 150-200 rounds through it, getting ready to shoot it today noticed that the 4 screws that hold the grip on were loose. Tightened them up seems to be no problem. Questions are, is this normal, are there other screws to check that are not visible, and should i put some locktite on them so it does not happen again if so what number
THANKS IN ADDVANCE

Has been for me,cylinder pin latch also. One drop on each with clear finger nail polish after tightning solved the problem.I've had the same problem with all single actions.

I didn't pay as close attention as you. One screw on my SBH actually cane out. I'll be checking it more often now.

They do tend to get loose, it's normal. BLUE lock tite is the correct fix, don't flood the screw just a dab on the threads. Green is the tool for screws that are tightened and in place--it will flow. Red is for never ever take it apart again. Blue is what you want, get the small tube--a little goes a long way.
