I have a 30-30 Handi, synthetic about 12 years old. I need a screw for the front site. The hole is smaller diameter than the back sites and need to be longer than the stock screw since I added a taller hornet site to go with the williams peep I put on the back.
I am guessing it will be 5/48 but not sure.
Who would carry such a thing? None of the gun shops around here do (sportsman's warehouse, Cabela's etc.) At least when I call them on the phone.
I've tried the hardware store, some were near in size but not threads.
Also called several so called gunsmiths in town. Nada. Couldn't even tap out the hole for me.
It makes me wonder what gunsmiths do? How can stores sell guns and not do repairs or even know of someone who can? Are firearms the new disposable items like paper plates and computers?
