Maybe a little gasoline and a match would improve it.

Better yet, the stock base plate.

Have fun.

I think, instead of using the screw you have to connect it, a better way would be with a knurled knob tapped for 1/4-20 thread on one end, and the male screw thread on the other. This would allow use of a tripod without having to detach your grip extension, and also make removal of the extension easier and without tools.
