    I am in need of one of the short mounting screws for a Leupold scope mount for a 700SA. When it was removed, the person buggered it all up when he put a new scope on it. I don’t like the new scope and want to put my old one back on, but I need one of the the short screws that go in the front of the mount.

    Any help would be appreciated,

    uncle jimbo

    Surprisingly when I needed some of the screws I found them at my local ACE hardware – and the funny part they bought them from Brownell’s as it was in the multi-compartment Brownell box.

    Our local Ace stocks gun screws too. They’re expensive, but even I get in a bind every now and then, in which case they’re a God send.

    Ace is always higher than the other big box stores – but they are just down the street from me.

    And they’ve got stuff the other stores don’t have.

    Went looking for a ACE Hardware store. There is one about 20 miles from me. Didn’t even know there was one in the area. Let alone that the carried screws for firearms.

    Heads up!

    My local Ace carries gun threaded screws, but they’re made in China.

    Got the screws today Goodsteel. Thank you very much. Going to mount the scope tomorrow and go sight it back in. Shouldn’t need much. Maybe a little tweeking.

    Thanks again,

    paul
