Anyway when I removed my pistol grip to install my newly made forearm from Deerslayer. I noticed the screw hole had been buggered some. Is it possible to buy a tap with the proper number of threads so I can clean this one up?

Mr Doug Richardson comes to mind, but if you have machine tool supliers in your area they might be able to hook you up with one. Size 14 - 24 is a dinasour, it hasn't been in standard use for a while. 1/4" - 24 is .0080" LARGER than 14 - 24. this size diffeerance may seem small but when it comes to threads it's the differance between it holding and suddenly dropping out onto the floor.
SORRY PK, your right it's 24TPI

Doug lists taps, I have them also. This size has not been in common usage since WWII.

I got my 14-24 tap from PK,it worked great, I needed to clean up
the threads on my WH 28 grip mt.,the bolt diden't screw in all the
way and messed up the threads a little bit.I reamed out the grip
just enough so the bolt went all the way thrue.
I did have to grind the tap down to make it a bottom tap, so the main
threads on the tap would go thrue the grip mt,with out hitting the barrel
