    I have a new frame(iscg 05) and my old mrp system 3 is iscg, can I drill out some new holes to match the iscg 05 tabs or is there an adaptor I can buy?

    I don't think so. It's not the diameter of the holes, it's the bolt-circle diameter.

    I thought that but I seen one of those new Mrp g2's and it fits both iscg and iscg 05, it has the same diameter for the holes, just bigger slots for the bolts.

    The MRP G2 is like any other backplate, one for ISCG and one for ISCG 05. There isn't really enough room between ISCG and ISCG 05 diameters to have the material needed to drill 3 more holes and make it fit. Your best option would be to buy just a new backplate.

    You may be able to go from old to 05 but not the other way around. Sorry.

    I would like to know what exactly I should do to convert an iscg old LG1 to iscg 05 and would it be as strong?

    you guys might be able to get away with drilling one but unless you have a mill you arent going to drill out slots so rotating the guide is out of the question. i say just get a new back plate, and in the case of the lg1 just get a new one so that you have all the adjustment that you need. that is just my opinion.
