Counterbore the stock to fit the washer and an allen bolt of the correct length...or maybe countersink the hole to take a flathead allen?

ETA...Cancel the flathead idea...too much chance to split the grip if tightened too much.

You could also get a piece of threaded rod to fit the gun, countersink the stock, and use a black-finished acorn nut for attachment...

Pics of the finished grip would be super
