Yea if you want to do this about your only option is thread milling or a very awkward single point. Even if you do find a tap you will need a tapered one to start and a botoming tap to finish. you could likely get them custom made but then your talking prohibitively expensive.

Don't forget about spyder feednecks as an option as well. It is very easy to attach those.

It's kind of funny how Angel detents and feednecks are kept alive by the guys over at AO. They were the standard equipment on the top of the line gun in 02 which is why the ULE uses them. No real reason to stick with them now.

I buy enough feednecks for my ULE mags alone to keep CCM supplying the thread.

not at home so I can't check my handbook, but D5 sounds fine tolerance wise (about mid-range where you want it). shouldn't pose an issue if anodizing is included.

I spec'd this tap for Stainless but will likely also tap Brass with it. Its not cheap so I may order a few to bring the cost down per piece. Still working on other priorities so this may back burner for a while.

Thanks.

I don't stock the Angel feedneck taps anymore (not even sure if I kept one for my personal stash), but when I did, I had them custom ground by these guys: http://www.e-taps.com

Last time I got a quote from them, I think they wanted close to $100 a pop, which is why I don't stock them anymore.

Sure enough, they even have it listed as in stock for $99.20: Metric taps M20-M100

Thank you. I could get them slightly cheaper but have to buy 6 at a time. You saved me a bundle. I looked on your site, I bought the cocker plug and bottoming from you a while ago, but I didnt see the M21 x .75 there. I appreciate the heads up and the link.

Tap arrived ! I would like to double check the Drill size for this. I believe in Metric tap sizes you take the outside diameter and subtract the pitch to get a drill bit size for the tap. In this case it would be 21 mm - .75 = 21.25 mm drill bit. I'm guessing thats an oddball size so I would use a 20 mm instead, is this correct?
