Save my KP
I have a KP-2 direct feed that needs some help. I bought the kp body here on mcarterbrown about a year ago. I finally got a round to putting her back together with a bunch of spare parts. I didn't realize until I started putting her together that the previous owner drill a hole into the body were the valve is on the bottom side of the tube. The kp2 is nickle plated so I really did not want to weld it closed. I tried using some epoxy to close the hole, but the pressure just blows it out. I will try to post some pics soon.
I would like to send it to you to fix it, so that I can finally play with it. It looks like a nice gun, but it does not hold air because some dumb *** drilled it.
Please help. Thanks

if it is hidden by the stock I would have a piece of brass turned to match the hole, silver solder it in and file it to match the body as well as possible.

Is the hole tapped? I know PPS does that in their valve performance tune upgrades, they drill a hole directly under the valve. The hole is there (it is threaded) for a tapered set screw, which is then screwed in and aligns with one of 4 holes in the valve. This plugs it, and the other two adjacent holes are plugged with two more screws. The final hole is enlarged, so this way less air is wasted and efficiency is improved somewhat.
