Default Assault block threads stripped

Ok the threads in the assault block have had it, completely stripped. Anyone have any suggestions besides throwing the damn thing?

Drill and retap it to a size larger screw. Don't drill it any deeper just widen it to whatever the next size up is. You'll need a bottom tap for that hole. As far as the screw goes, you'll need to modify it shorter or you can put a washer on the screw to releive the wiggle -

Well what I usually do is find the screw that you want to use, first, then match it up with the tap make sure it fits by tapping something non-important, and seeing if the screw works in it.

The size of the drill hole is usually printed on the tap, or in the box with the tap.
