What you guys think v. mythreg

I don't really feel like putting loctite on my myth reg. My maxflo didn't have it and I used it successfully for quite some time. The threads on the myth are quite long, so unscrewing it all the way would take some real stupidity.(stupidity I don't posses)
So, since it's sealed, since the threads are long, I doubt I will even put loctite on the threads to make it easier to take it on and off without having to damage the reg. (it doesn't have the wrench things like a crossfire, it would have to be put in a vice grip and scratched till it came off)

Can anything think of a legit reason to loctite it down?

You don't need the loctite.

Do not put loctite on your tank. The pressure and the number of threads on the reg are enough to hold it together.

Okay, torqued it down, screwed it in and filled the tank, no leaks; screwed it into the gun, fired and unscrewed it with no problem. Didn't die in the process, seems good.

Makes a really weird sound when filling.

yeah myth regs are known for making really odd sounds when the pressure is changed. the most well known is what GA calls a "harmonic ping", which is a ping noise that is made when you fire the marker. not all tanks have this oddity however and if yours does its okay.

as long as you keep a couple hundred PSI in the tank, the reg isnt going to come off.

Mine doesn't make a sound. Ran across a crossfire tank that was really bad about it.

I can think of a legit reason for loctite, but everyone here will shoot me down with stupid comments. Its not like if its applied properly it wont damage anything or cause that much of an inconvenience for hydro testers.

Just make sure you torque the reg down to the specs which are 35ibs

The early myth reg manual called for a very small amount of blue loctite on the end of the threads and let it wick up the threads. I put one drop near the bottom and turned the reg upside down and let it seep. I have taken the reg off since with no problems. It gave me a warm fuzzy feeling knowing there was a little loctite there.

Put some blue loctite on if you want, you dont necessarily need it, just take a crescent and tighten it.

I don't even torque it. Hand tight is all you need. Thats how we use to do it with our adjustables back in the day.
