the forward mount still has good threads it's just the back I'm worried about. I've considered both the weld and retap, and the larger hole method. I just really don't want to take the chance of completely fuggering up this gun so I am being very cautious with whatever action I take.
would applying loctite to the holes and then loctiting the screws give enought hold that the front half could hold it in place or would that be a poor choice?
