Grip screws not coming out

I have a featureless Sub2k Gen 2 that I just purchased. I’m trying to install the performance bundle but I ran into an issue. Two out of the four grip screws will not unscrew. One top screw and one bottom screw on opposite sides of the firearm. My guess is they put loctite or rock set in so the firearm cannot be altered. Anyone have any ideas how I can remove the screws?

I have tried putting pressure on the opposite side with an Alan key and nothing. The screw just keeps spinning. I appreciate any help. Thank you

Hi @Erock04 and welcome to the forum. Any luck with this?
Are the heads worn out? Are the nuts still on the threads?

Thank you!!! Actually I figured it out. I just put the other screw back in as tight as I could get it and while holding it with an Allen key I drilled out the screw that was stuck. Problem solved and I was able to complete the performance bundle without any other hiccups.

Hello,

Doing my first build as well and reading this thread for removing my grip fin and getting the same screws spinning.
Any other suggestions?
Going to try the above method of using a drill
Also added liquid wrench to break up the lock tite

Thanks

I ended up using the drill to get one side off and the other was stripped. Went to the gunsmith who removed the head of the other bolt and used the upgrade kit to replace the stripped parts.

If you have the same issue, just use a drill on one side with the wrench on the other to gently remove the bolts

Cheers
