    Hi All
    I have a Remington XP-100 which I converted into a precision rifle, my problem is with the rear action screw which is very small and fragile usually I have to change it each time after I open the action screw it's also impossible to tight it too much,
    Can I retap the rear screw to the normal screw lie the forward screw I think the measurements are: ¼"-28 x 1½" ?

    My second problem is with the magazine box which is too short is there anything I can do in order for the magazine to work properly with the long M852/M118LR rounds?
