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.

I was actually just going to post a "help" thread on this exact gun. I haven't bought it... yet. But I just wanted to know if there is any pot metal on this gun? And where did you buy this from? Ehobby has it for pretty good, 90$, but without shipping.

Sorry to thread jack, and if you want me to post another/PM you, thats fine.

Yeah, thats great dude. Thanks!

Are there a lot of parts for it, or not really?

Edit: Just kidding, answered my own question. The lack of parts, and pretty bad hop-up system make it seem like a no go for me. I'd rather not go for the VSR/BAR 10, or L96, something a little more unique... But not this.
