Front Screw On a P68SC Threads Loose/Stripped

The front threads on the inside of the gun are loose, and a little tapered piece with the threads falls out if i remove the screw. I cant tighten or loosen the threads without pulling on the frame to add tension. How can i fix that little tapered piece with the threads on it.

There's no simple fix to this problem. That whole little threaded bit is called a nutsert. It's basically a reverse rivet. Instead of filling the whole it opens the hole and threads it. You need a nutsert tool and low profile nutserts. I picked a kit up a couple years ago for this reason.

Question is how much would it cost for me to pay someone to fix it. The nutsert is still in there and a silver piece is in there, but the tapered piece fell out. I managed to get it back in.

If Long Beard can't fix it for you, I would go ahead and contact a member here named rtp. He has the tools and parts to fix something like this, he fixed my sheridan.

There's a similar with some good solutions in it.
Nutserts for Sheridans. Anyone one have a source?

The best solution I have ever seen: think thick washer with a tapped hole drilled radially. With a reasonable ID on the "thick washer" the 12 gram will clear it no problem as the mounting hole is pretty close to the face of the valve.

I actually used a nut and bolt and got it tight.
