Tap and dye to the next size would probably be your best bet.

If you have to, you can tape it on. It isnt that great of an option, but if its your only one, it is your best.
you may need someone to help though. make sure it is tight if you have to do it

does it thread on at all? cause if it screws on a little, you could use washers between the grip frame and the screw

It does a little but, it will work loose. I'm thinking I'll get some stainless female tube stock drill the hole just lage enuogh to get it to fit coat out side with red lock tight. Then place a small cross pin in a side drilled hole of the sleave I installed in the frame , to prevent it from coming loose.

Thinking this way I stay with stock size bolts, and stanless will never strip out. the cross pin will keep it from ever moving.

Heli-Coil. We've got 2 trucks running that would dang near drop the transmission on the road several times a trip. All 24 holes in the aluminum flywheel housing (12 on each truck) got coiled.

The trucks are both rated in the 1200+ ft-lbs area so Im pretty sure Heli-coils will hold a frame on.

Best thing I can think of other than drilling & tapping for a bigger size. But since you gotta do that for Heli-coils also, might as well spend the extra minute to put a coil in & keep the factory screw.
