Eureka!
Okay. So, light a candle. take some of the melted wax and rub it on the inside of one reciever half. Actually, forget wax, use like. . . vaseline, or any kind of lube or oil or whatever. Then, use a putty (is J&B Weld a putty?) that bonds with metal and put it all over both reciaver halfs in the vicinity of the hole (:blink:OMFG). Let it dry or whatever it does. Then the reciever half with the lube should come off, and the other half will have a block that fits perfectly and can be tapped.

Thank you! I will try this.. Do you know a definate name on a putty?

I found something that may work... "epoxy putty." It's avail. at Hope Depot and is under $9.00

Here's a link to it...

EDIT** This link doesnt work, on the homepage, search for putty, its the 1st one on the result page.

This should work, in which i follow the lubification process of questionful's post above... Am I correct in saying this?

Well, you could use Epoxy. It's very strong multi purpose stuff. But most people use J&B Weld. I've never used J&B Weld, so IDK anything about it. But that epoxy says it bonds with steel, aluminum, and plastics, so you're good.

Use jb weld, its much better suited for this. You'll have no problem drilling an tapping it, thats what its for.
What you need to do is split the receiver halves, and then use some masking tape on the back of each half to make a pocket, then fill it with jb weld, once dry peel the tape and sand, drill and tap.

I had to do somthing similar when i removed my rear sight.

Thanks guys. I'm still going to try the epoxy stuff I can get at Home Depot, just beacuse it's local, but I will definatly take your technique into consideration Airhog. This has got to be the best way yet! :D

Thanks everyone.

Epoxy wont hold up, and it will also strip out very easy. They have JB weld at home depot as well, its like 7 bucks.

Just trying to save you some agrivation.

Yeah, I'm not sure what A2 grip it is, but you can find someone to help you out.

I mounted it to the bottom of the grip where the asa used to be with a custom mounting socket... I do not have the Q setup right now, I borrowed my friends Q Loader, all I have is 4 1st gen Q Pods... I am buying the 98 setup on their site soon. Once I do that, I'll take some pics.

... ehhhh I had to "ghetto rig" it, i couldnt get my hands on a tap and dye set, so I used JB Weld to attach it to 1/2 of the body... :( But hey it works! :D

It just needs to be painted black to get rid of that shiny bare aluminum.
