Anything KIDD.. don't mess with it. It would be fine tuning a Ferrari.

Mistake in my opinion. Locktite reduces friction and aluminum can be a tricky proposition using a torque wrench. Good way to wind up with stripped screw holes. Like Chaser says if its Kidd you will be fine.

Are you sure Kidd didn't use Locktite when they assembled it?

I believe Kidd does use some type of thread locker on their bases. I'm not 100% because I've never removed one. Also never had one come loose or heard of anyone who has. If I were installing a new one on a Kidd or Ruger receiver I would definitely use a dab of blue loctite on each screw however.
