Need Help FAST!

I stripped the threads on my Ion in the trigger frame where the regulator screws in. I can no longer get my regulator or any other regulator I have to screw into the Ion now. I need to know the tread size so I can buy a tap and die set that has that particular threading so I can retap the hole and hopefully be able to use my Ion again.

your boned buddy even if you do get a tap you cant retap a striped thread for the same size. if you want to still know look in the voided werenety forum under the tap thread or maybe its thread thread look around its a sticky

i got it fixed. i just spent a couple hours with a knife and flat head screwdriver and fixed up the threads. works just fine. used an old CO2 tank with a brass fitting to screw into the ion first to kinda guide the treading process so when i screwed in an aluminum reg it didnt mess that up too.
