2k5'd frame screws

If i'm using a 2k2 body with a 2k5 frame, should I be using the Alias (Gen 3) manual's frame screw size? This assumes i'd need to use the washer as well?
I just want to make sure they aren't too long and would end up causing a puncture.

To follow that up, i've searched the internetz for the alias frame screw 3/32 x 3/4 with no luck. I've also assumed the 3/32 should be read 3-32 for the thread size and it's a button socket cap screw. I've checked a few different vendors but the closest I can find is 6-32.

Just wanted to verify the correct size of these screws with someone.

Thanks!

Yes, you should be using the Alias manual's sizing for the screws. You don't have to use the washers but it'll help prevent you from puncturing the body in the front. I might have some laying around my house. Let me take a look and get back to you, how many do you want/need.

cool that's what I figured. I'd probably need to use the washers just to be safe.

I was trying to find some black oxidized ones to match the rest of scheme, since right now they're the only two silver pieces on the whole gun...kinda looks silly.

I've been digging around some more and some people say it's 10-32 not 3-32 like in the manual. Seems like a pretty large typo.

I think they're 10-32 and like 3/4 of an inch but I can't tell you off the top of my head. I'll have to check when I get home. I know I have some. The Assassin's and Empire frames are the sketchy ones. The rear screws for those two aren't standard. The Assassin's frame is significantly shorter/smaller and the Empire needs a smaller diameter cap.

Interesting. the species has a 2k5 frame, so I think i'd be safe using the 10-32x3/4, but I found and assassin's frame for my classic and I don't believe the frame screws are included.

Any chance you might be able to measure the rear assassin's screw for me
