    Hey,

    I had to put some blue lock tite on one of mine.

    Take care,

    degrease it first- the receptacle and the bolt- thats most of the problem or the bolt doesnt fit well for some reason

    try it with a lock washer after it is degreased--

    if that doesnt work- try the blue loctite

    A drop or two of clear nail polish on the threads. Good part, you can break it loose without too much force when you want. P.S. As they said, "Use the lock washer"

    If you stock bolt comes loose with the factory lockwasher and washer stack, it sounds like you have a stock that does not fit up correctly. It may need to be bedded. Worst case with Lock-tite is that it will definitely stay put, but you risk cracking your stock. My .02 cts worth.

    Blue loctite boys said it right. Seen it used successfully for many many years.

    Trick question? The 11-87 does not have a stock bolt. It has a stock retaining nut that goes on the action spring tube. If the lock washer is not holding it, Loc-Tite will.
