Well it takes 800psi to fire a paintball at 300fps be it from a pistol or a full sized gun right? I'm pretty sure 12g's can at least handle 800psi. I think the main problem is that the thin material makes for a relatively unstable platform to actually thread something into. Where in a full threaded screw, you have a LOT of surface area to provide friction, a 12g provides maybe 1 thread's worth, the rest is just hanging out in the 12g, or out of it. Torquing this would be very very bad methinks.
And what do you mean wide enough? If you drill from the bottom of the 12g, it works, and same from the side. Just drill straight. You'll get in eventually.

The only issue is with the threads.
And yes, I am sure.
