need help bad might have killed my lower.
Edit: sorry thought this was builds in general
ok here is the deal was swaping out pistol grips first one went fine"Daniel def lower"
second one I think I stripped the threads"it an armalite receiver"
I cant get the original screw back in now or the new one.
there was a point where I thought to my self I should stop trying to force this screw in but
did I listen to my self no....go figure.
my question is is the there a way to recut the threads or is my lower screwed?
google: helicoil thread repair kit
Edit for clarity
looked at that how would I use that?
also I am not very good with tools "if its simple ok"
any thing event remotely complicated I am screwed"
would I bee better of taking it to my gunsmith ?
thanks for the help I just don't want to screw it up more if its fixable.
if you have a tap set, you could try to chase the threads. Otherwise use some thread repair kit.
so it can be fixed and
i did not kill the lower then right?
it can be fixed no problem
get a friend that is good with tools and it will be easy
well I fixed it..threads where just dirty with gunk.
quick wipe out and all good. used an old bore brush that fit the hole on a whim.
sometimes when you walk away from a problem for a few
it is a good thing.
thanks all for the replies.
