    If an M4 looks like it might fit, it's likely to be either UNC 6-32 or 8-32 at a guess. I'd be tempted to buy both from eBay and see which one fits the best, they don't cost much.

    They are UNC 8-32. I think from memory the base screws are 5/8" and the top screws 3/8" long.

    Modelfixings is a very trustworthy firm and they are very prompt in sending out your orders.

    Here is a photo of the screws; you can see the part number to order.

    PS you may need to buy an allen key. The size is 9/64 inch, approx. 0.14 inch. 3.6 mm.

    quality ?

    what's the quality like, i bought a few from other places (ebay etc) that ended up being cheap & nasty..
    causing me to drill the sodding things out to save my scope when the head came off one...
    which meant kissing good by to a set of sports match mounts :( :eek:o:eek:o

    Used Model fixings for quite a few years and the quality us very good.

    Stuff from Ebay especially from does seem not to last. Cheap is not always better.

    I've never had a problem with Modelfixings. The service is first class, the products are good quality. Their taps and dies are very good indeed.
