I bought a used {1 year old} PCII and one of the grip threads on the frame is completely stripped out.How big of a problem is this to repair??

It is the threads in the frame that are stripped out.Each time I remove a screw its stripped out also so I put a new one in and a little glue to hold it each time.It's just getting a little pricey on replacement screws.

You might try searching ebay for the tap and bushings and save yourself a couple of bucks.

If you don't already have one a 1911 catalog from Brownells is nice to have on hand.
