Posts Tagged ‘stock’

Well last year at some point I must have dropped it. Managed to pull or pop one of the two receiver to stock bolt holes and stripped it smooth. Buggrit. 

Asking the brain pool (derks and Jamie?) for advice we came up with tapping out and reinforcing. There isn’t enough depth of metal to use thread savers etc so a new hole was needed. 

My engineering skills are fairly limited and my tools mostly ‘acquired’ and therefore incomplete but I do have an M4 tap and an adjustable spanner. So the hole was drilled, tapped and cleaned. And it was straight!

To reinforce I bolted the new receiver bolt in with a nut on. This was wound down and epoxied in place to lengthen the thread. The stock needed a touch of dremmeling to seat the receiver properly. 

Works quite well and has held for at least one game day…..
