Good job, Jacob

You'll definitely get more kills than those idiots in Columbine.

so my chores are done for the day. I do have a task to do and will probably lose some skin or a fingertip whilst trying to accomplish it.
My scope base mount on my Camp 9 uses 8-40 screws so I ordered some Torx heads by a 1/4" .250 of an inch long. Well now I have to trim off 2 threads from each screw. Bench grinder here I come.
What about a 1/8 shim under the mount? I have a drill press and all, guess I could try that, what think you all?

Think you'r gona have to get rid of a couple of threads, i would try a file first before the bench grinder, thinking it wouldn't mess the threads up as bad.

Find a nut to thread onto the screw first, then file down to the nut. Helps keep the starter threads in line will be easier to start.

I found an 8-40 die for $39 and change. Pass on that. I will just file away, found my thread file so can clean up the threads.

With a screw that small, you won't be able to torque it down enough to ensure the shim won't cause an inconsistent shift during recoil.
