    Screw for rear sight of Ruger Gunsite scout

    Because I am a hand fisted gorilla who probably shouldn't own hand tools I have managed to damage the attachment screw for the rear sight of a Ruger Gunsite scout.

    The internet tells me it is a counter sunk number 6-40 screw approx. 0.134 inch diameter with 40 tpi. Looks about 1/2 inch long.

    Any help locating one or a potential source of one would be appreciated.

    Mitre 10 has all sorts of oddball screws in drawers below the regular packs. Could be worth a try especially if you want it now. Otherwise Anzor or somewhere similar

    I have tried Mitre 10 and a few engineering places with no luck.
    It appears that this is quite a specific firearm type screw. I can get them from the States but the postage is $65-$75 so not really practical.

    If anyone has a countersunk 6/40 unf screw out there in your box of bits you are willing to sell please let me know.
