I was replacing the old stock on my sks rifle, when I noticed that the threads had '"washed" out on the piece that clips the magazine to the upper receiver, I don't have a problem with re tapping the hole, my problem is I can not find any shallow taps. Any ideas I am all ears
you need a bottoming tap. those taps have no taper to them and are designed to get into shallow holes or to thread to the bottom of a blind hole.
for a little bit of future knowing you have taper taps to start, plug taps and bottoming taps. the bottoming tap should do the trick.
