AP Customs shot shell carriers – screw/thread size

AP Customs shot shell carriers – screw/thread size

I have ordered some of the AP Custom shot shell carriers but, due to lack of availability, I have had to order a style different to those I actually need. The ones I wanted were the QL/8, but I could only get hold of the QL/8C (which is where all 8 are next to each other).

When I get the QL/8C I want to alter them to the same design as the QL/8 so I will have to make my own backing plate. As these plates are drilled and tapped I will have to order a tap to suit, but as I am in England I will have to order the tap in as I only have metric sizes available.

Could anyone let me know the thread sizes of the screws on the shell carriers as I will need to do this work as soon as they arrive (or before), and I expect them in a week or so. It may take me some time to order the tap as well so if anyone can get me the info asap I would appreciate it.

I have emailed AP Custom/Rhino but have not received a reply yet.

Thanks for your help.

Regards

Mick

UPDATE:- These have just turned up so this is now urgent - if anyone can help It would be greatly appreciated.

Your local Home Depot or Lowes will have screws and taps. IIRC, it is either 6/32 or 8/32. Just bring it with you and test it out.

:o Whilst I would enjoy a visit over to the states again, I think it may put me in the bad books with my good lady!!! :surprise:

Thanks anyway for your help.

If anyone could be a bit more specific without involving a trans-Atlantic crossing that would be helpful too!

Many thanks.

If you are at the shotgun world shoot in Italy this September, tap me on the shoulder if you see me as I will gladly buy you a beer!
