Yes as a fact the body can be rethreaded. I ran into the issue about a year or two ago on a GX-3 body. There is at least one thread by me somewhere on here about this very problem. I actually called CCM about it and talked to Rod. He didn't know the actual thread size of it, but he knew that it could be retreaded to standard 2k+ threads. So I sent it off to them and it quickly came back all fixed up.
