Question Marlin Lever Action Screws??

Hey guys a few questions here. A few years back when I was thinking about going into cow boy action shooting I remember one thing mentioned on the Marlin 1894's was that some of the action screws can work loose. This was one of the issues with the Marlin 1894's as long as you keep the action screws good and tight? My recent acquisition my Marlin 1894 C .357 no cross bolt. The larger action screws on the left & right side of the receiver was loose I tighten both sides down the lever screw was snug. But the bottom trigger guard screw was missing! I ordered a new one thru Brownells a 12-28 x 3/8 long machine screw. These screws fit the 336, 1894, 1895 in other words all the Marlin center fire lever action's. Well tonight with both my Marlin 1894's I removed bottom forward trigger guard screws and put on some blue thread loc on these screws. I removed the trigger guard screw on my Marlin 336 RC 30-30 and installed it on my Marlin 1894 C as described with blue thread loc. I will install the new 12x28 3/8 machine screw when I get it on my Marlin 336. My general question here is there certain one of these receiver action screws that need a small dab of thread loc on to stay in place. The thread loc I used was a soft set not the red hard set. Reason I removed the 336 screw and installed it on my 1894 C is because I have a scope mounted on it and plan to get it sighted in soon. I would appreciate comments & ideas here thanks!

I have never had any problem on my 7 or so marlin lever actions. I fired my 45 colt ones with buffalo bore 335 grain pounders and no problem

I am not having problems either but I do remember reading on a SAA gun sight about different revolvers and rifles used in cowboy action shooting. I remember one of the most popular cow boy rifles are Marlin 1894's. Heard as long as the action screws are tight they work great. This is the general reason why I posted. Never any problems with my Marlin 1894 CB Limited or my Marlin 336 RC. But the forward trigger guard screw was missing on my Marlin 1894 C .357. I checked my Marlin 1894 CB Limited and the right & left side large receiver screws was a bit loose so I snugged them down. I really haven't shot my 1894 CB Limited rifle that much. With Cow Boy action shooting there are a lot of rounds used when one goes out to shoot in a session of CB action shooting. I don't plan to do CB action shooting. BTW my Rossi Model 92 that I sold to get the Marlin 1894 C was a great little rifle. Some day I plan to get another one in stainless steel.
