Yeah.. it's not tight.  There is a guide on the DIY section how to fix the mag.  If you can't fix that send us a ticket on Helpdesk.  We'll figure out a way to help you.

Would not suggest it. Best to fix it how it's supposed to be fixed.

You'll damage the mag if you do. Think of it this way, if you are going to properly loctite, then you still need to unscrew it in the first place. If, you are unscrewing it, then you are just better off tightening the valve.

I have been able to fix the leak by removing the valve, cleaning off the metal particles from it with a dry q-tip (prob causing the leak in the first place), cleaning the inside threading of the valve chamber with a dry q-tip as well, applying silicon oil to the valve, and then re-inserting the valve & tightening.

When cleaning the valve what you want to look for is to see if the metal particles damaged the o-rings, if the o-rings look undamaged, then you should get a good seal with the silicon application and the tightening.

Don't use loctite.

In your case this is just a valve that hasn't screw all the way in.   Loctite is not the solution.

All owners of GBB guns should own a set of valve keys.  It's a must due to the amount of maintenance required on gas blow back guns in order for proper function.  They, not just KWA guns, will require frequent cleaning and maintenance to maintain perfect operation.
