I ordered the screw kit from Marsh Hawk arms, and Ive got almost everything I need to finish my build.  The only thing Im missing is the 1/4" x 28 bottoming tap.  

Ive gone to Home Depot, Lowes, Ace, and a couple auto parts shops and none of them have taps that fine.  I looked at Brownell's and Natchez, they dont have any either..

So do any of y'all have any suggestions or know where i can find one?

Carefully grind down the tip on a regular starting tap and make your own bottoming tap.

I know about that, but I couldn't find any taps in 1/4" x 28.  Neither starting nor bottoming taps.

I guess if worse comes to worse Home depot has 1/4 x 20 taps, guess I could find some 1/4 x 20 screws somewhere, but I'd prefer not to have to jerryrig my first build

ACE Hardware stores have quality taps. If you have an Ace, you have tools.
