That is dead center my line of thinking, just as a back-out if it didn't work. Thread the existing hole and plug it, drill the new hole; and id it doesn't work out, tap and plug the old hole, and buy the Rocket valve. I was contemplating the Rocket valve when I purchased the spring kit; but wanted to see how well my handywork on the stock valve turned out.

I read some mixed views about the cupping the face. Once I found out just how hard it was to grind, I quickly sided with the not-so-worth-it camp. :-D

Gimme a second, and I'll post up a pic of the gun I'm working on. I'm giddy with this one.
