It’s a reproduction of the MC52 mount. Should I just torque them tighter? Is there a better way to prevent them from loosening up?
I will note that Reproduction MC52 mounts (like the Tar Heel Ordnance mounts from years ago) typically have 26mm rings, which is what the old Kollmorgen scopes used, as that was/is the standard European diameter for scopes of the 20th century. This is slightly larger than 1" and can presents a loose fit issue with common US scopes.

Your US-made Redfield scope has a 1" tube, which is 25.4mm in diameter, so the rings will be a little loose unless you add something like black duct tape under the rings on around the scope to bring the diameter up by 0.6mm so its closer to 26mm. Just an fyi.
