LCD Grip Screws- Confirming Threading

The grip screws (i.e. holding the grips to the frame, NOT the frame to the body) on an LCD are M4 x 6ish right? I've seen x8 posted, but that's just length IIRC. Just wanted to firm up on this. Thanks!

Threading is definitely M4. Not 100% sure on length. Either 6 or 8 should be close enough. There's a lot of meat there, and the grip holes are in the clear, so you don't have to worry about 8 poking through and screwing anything up.

oh course bob (pi.moon) is correct. IF you want to be safe and easy however

get m4x6mm for the one closest to the trigger, and use m4x8 on the others

A few aftermarket trigger/triggerframes can actually get bound up if you use too long a screw on the gripframe (guess how i know

Most of this a/m triggers were designed that way so the side to side play could be controlled.

I've had the trigger bind on an Eclipse frame even with stock screws that were tightened too far, but the stock frames are not nearly as picky.

Went with the 6mm length. Just a damn shame I had to order them online. The hardware stores in town don't really have anything to do with metric >_>
