    Using Locktight to freeze internal lock on SW 340 PD

    After reading several stories about Smith Wesson's internal locking mechanisms "locking up", has anyone tried using locktight on the keyhole? (I am specifically referring to a SW 340 PD).

    Now the recoil will work the LokTite loose, causing some loose debris in the firearm. No thank you.

    If you carefully degrease the metal parts that will never let go.
