A&K SVD (pics added)

I broke down my A&K SVD last night and found the hop up adjustment grub screw is stuck. The 1.5mm hex head on it has stripped (so the allen bolt just spins) and I can't get the little blighter out.
I reckon the only solution is to drill it out and tap the hole for a larger grub screw.

Here is my question-
The hole is 3mm (I think), do I use a 3mm drill bit and a 4mm tap or do I need to use a 4mm bit and a 4mm tap?
I will be using a hand drill and whatever set of tap and dies I can find on the net for cheap.
Are both my suggestions totally wrong? If this is the case, lets hear from the experts please.

Where did you get the wood kit from? It looks beautiful. I've been looking for a set for my A&K, but most are out of stock. I've also given mine a worn look and it turned out great, just need to get some wood on it.
Thanks blackfoot1! I was looking at the one on Airsoft Panda, but it just went out of stock a few weeks ago. I may have to checkout the kit on RSOV. I love the wood on SVD's.
I wondered about that, but imagine that the consistency wouldn't be very great. Also, disassembling the bolt is required to change the CO2. It's a neat idea though. What I want is a way for GBB internals!

The CO2 kits are totally unregulated and from what I've heard, are seriuosly inconsistent. When I first saw/heard of them I was quite excited (not sure why, it's not like it makes it semi-auto or anything), but I haven't read a good review yet.
I'm happy with the way the A&K SVD shoots as a springer. I absolutely hate the sound of AEG's firing semi-auto (asthmatic whirring and weasing) which is why I wouldn't buy a Real Sword SVD.
WE Tech will eventually (hopefully) release a GBB SVD and then the world will be changed for the better, forever!
I agree, although I wouldn't mind having a Real Sword. My springer is shooting pretty good at the moment though.

So that's what that was; a GBB SVD? I found these pics on evike's facebook:

I wonder how it will be. If it's as good as and compatible with VSR barrels/buckings like they're GBB M14, then it should be really nice.
