Before I explain I attempted to use the search feature and came up dry so I decided to ask my question in a new thread. I'm new to this forum, but I've been scanning lots of info on here for awhile and I finally decided to make a profile cause there's so much knowledge on this site and I wanted to get involved. My problem is I recently got my first 1911 and I attempted to put new hogue grips on it. Seemed successful at first but when I went to tighten the last screw I noticed it kept spinning and wouldn't actually tighten down. I removed the grips from the pistol and noticed the threaded bushing was now attached to the grip instead of the gun. Basically the threads that secure the bushing to the pistol are stripped I believe. I've never actually taken tools to my guns aside from basic cleaning and maintenance. I'm new to 1911 platform and I'm not sure what my options are to fix this problem. It's a metro arms american classic II by the way. I can take some pictures in the morning of that'd help my situation.
