I was working on my 1911 to upgrade my trigger, I was working on taking my grips off and stripped the top of the screw. I cant turn the screw at all and dont want to trash mygrips. If anyone knows how to help plz advise me
An easy out you should be able to get a set at a good hardware store. You can also get them from gunsmithing supply shops like Brownells on the web. Personal I would try the nail first. Putting a piece of duct tape over you grip with hole over the screw will give your grip some protection if you should have any slip.
Keep up with the trends, avoid the fads, take your time and do work you can be proud of always
Check a machine tool store for a ez out or a left handed drill. If you have a vice and a drill press or a mill it will make it easier. I've never done it on a gun but I've done it on tons of cnc tooling.
I have cut slots in many screws using a Dremel and a dental burr. But it does require extreme care to only cut the screw and not run off into the rest of the gun. The square nail trick works but works better with a cement nail(harder).
Just walking on the edge of of my grave.
