Hey guys,
My 81DL is having a major problem. It appears that some genious used a screw that was a bit too big and stripped the threads in the receiver. So I cannot attach the cartridge carrier base screw to the receiver. It was working recently but now I cannot get it to work to save my life.

Is this a common problem? Can it be resolved easily? Or is there a known screw that is just a slightly larger size that will still fit in the parts and allow me to get the rifle working again? I am really hoping that I did not just end up with a new single shot. Let me know if there is something I can do to fix this. In the mean time I am gonna try to file the part down to make it all fit with the carrier spring under the Z shaped piece that gives it tension.

Warm Regards
P
