beaver tail screw

I looked at stickes, some of them didn't load.

What sort of screw is used to hold the beaver tail on? I don't think it matters, but I've got a 99 STO

10/32 thread. Length may vary according to which beavertail you're using.

I figured it would be 10-32 . I'll just run to a hardware store with the beaver tail and get the length i need.

thanks man

Make sure you get a short screw so it won't screw into your IVG.

Hard steel screws go to town on soft brass IVGs.

True that. If you get screws at the hardware store be prepared to shorten them at home. A dremel and a cut off wheel works great.

yep, i've had to deal with that before. Looking at the hole, i dont' think it goes through the body, so i shouldn't have a problem as long as i dont' apply massive torque.

You won't have a problem as long as the screw doesn't hit the IVG.

Screwing steel into brass is like poking styrofoam with a stick. It's really not good. Count the threads and use about 75% of them. If the hole is ten threads deep, make your screw go in seven (you'll have to budged the width of your beavertail/washer into the size of the screw)
