You do not need loctite if you plan on removing the regulator again, but if you removed it on a accident, then a drop of blue loctite on the threads can help you avoid separating the tank and the regulator. I also recommend in the future, when you remove your Air System from the marker's ASA, to always remove from the regulator, not the tank.
Using a strap wrench is recommended to torque in the regulator in place.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
