A1 Grip Frame

I have an A1 not a FLY.
I stripped the hole out that holds the grip panel out is there any way to remedy this? I have a tap and die set, I'm just scared to mess up because it's aluminum.. any suggestions?

Track down a frame or drill and tap for a size larger.

Going up a screw size would be the easiest solution. Helicoil, maybe, but there's not a lot of meat there so I'm not sure if that would work or not.

or maybe I could convert it to use magnets to hold the grip panels on.. if I'm not mistaken the A1 Fly uses something similar?

The Fly uses the same type of screws to hold the grips in place as the stock A1 frame. Only difference in the frame is trigger retaining plate.
