Default Dixie Mag base thread needed

I have a Dixie M-1 mag and two of the holes have been drilled out and tapped to 1/2", the other 2 are 7/16", I am going to use thread inserts to repair the base. I believe the original thread was 3/8"-16. Unfortunately all I have is the mag, and not what it goes on so I don't know the original thread size. Anyone out there know?
