One commonly overlooked tool that every airsoft technician should have is a bottle of thread locker, generically trademarked as Loctite. This special anaerobic adhesive is applied to threads before assembly to keep them from working their way out with vibration. For certain parts on airsoft guns this can save you a lot of problems and expense later on. When installing piston heads thread locker is almost a must have, they are well known for working their way loose due to the impact on the cylinder head. I would also recommend some on any selector lever screws, there is nothing worse than having your selector lever fall off because chances are your not going to find it. Unlike the common “permanent” red 277 type thread locker this purple 222 type is designed for bolt sizes under 6mm and can be removed without heat and impact so you don't end up stripping small screws trying to get them out later. As with all adhesives clean your threads with a solvent before applying thread locker to prevent any grease or oils from ruining the bond.
Type: Purple 222 (yes the bottle is red but the contents are purple)
Volume: 50ml (note: the piston in the picture is show for scale but the bottles are only half filled to keep it from curing in the bottle but they still will last you a very long time)
