Sadly as you can see in the picture the rim of the brass insert has been damaged so can't be retrieved and reused. I have used a calliper to measure the hole at about 8mm and have ordered a pack from eBay that's described to fit within a 7.5 - 8.5 hole. If it becomes a case of it being a bit loose in there is there a glue or resin that could be safely used to secure it?

On the other had if it was a bit tight I really don't want to drill it out especially as its so close to another hole. In this case it might be worth considering replacing the but plate entirely with a more modern aluminium plate like the MEC Contact III that has a more forgiving screw hole configuration. Its safe to assume a custom plate was why it was moved in the first place. The trouble is I cant really afford a MEC III at the moment, so wondering if there is something cheaper that exists.


I would go metal filled epoxy -and fill the unwanted hole as well - but standard araldite rapid will do a good job but no colour match.

Re removing old insert small stud removal tool will probably do the job as screws in anti clockwise and should break any seal/adhesive there is - hopefully.

Good luck hope you get it sorted!
Kind Regards
