I've used regular blue Loktire on my Mod P .357Mag and the screws were backing out again after a dozen shooting/cleaning sessions. But again I clean and oil my weapons with Ballistol. It will creap into any openings on the weapon. I can only presume that it dissolves the Loktite. Ballistol is great stuff. It will lift lead, brass, copper and the like. I'm sure it will soften up Loktite too. So I just simply go over my weapons with a screwdriver when cleaning. Takes about a minute to do.

I'll bet you use a synthetic CLP type of stuff to clean and lube. Might effect lacquer as well. But if you want to paint clear lacquer on the screws be my guest.

My cleaning agent is usually nothing more than a little Rem Oil and a nylon brush and bore snake.... I follow the minimum disruption theory of gun cleaning and have never suffered in function or accuracy for it.

That's minimal for sure.
I've been accused of being all out fanatical about weapons cleaning. Comes from some years spent in the jungle and more here in East Texas, both of which are extremely humid. Also I spent some time as a Drill Sergeant. That'll make you sorta fanatical about weapons cleaning too.

RemOil is predominantly mineral oil so it might take a bit to disolve lacquer. Worth a try.

I use Loctite 222 for small fasteners. Never found it local, but I order it
from Midway. Never had a problem with 222 while using Break Free,
Ballistol and an assortment of others. The screw stays in place, but
easily removes with a good fitting screwdriver.

Also if you don't have them already, get a good set of gunsmithing
screwdrivers. I have the large kit from Brownells. Expensive, but they fit
every screw on every firearm I have.
