I had a grip screw bushing come out when I removed the grips on my 1911 last night.

I was wondering if loctite might be a viable option for making sure that it doesn't happen again, and if to, which one?

Thanks.

I would just tighten the bushing in to the grip, and use a small O ring under my grip screw so that it doesn’t have to be screwed so tightly.

This works for me.
If you do use loctite for the bushing, make sure it is not the permanent type.

Sure Loctite it back in.
You should degrease the threads in the frame and on the bushing first.
There is probably some gun oil residue there.
You can use some some acetone or lacquer thinner on a couple of cotton swabs.

If you use Loctite, I'd go with "blue". There are several fastener's on my AR's I use it on.

I normally use "blue" on everything gun related.

Definitely yes on the "O" rings. I use them on my 1911 and also my P226. If possible, torque the screws to about 10~15 foot lbs.
