M6x0.75 socket head cap screws



Log in to see fewer ads
These are the screws that hold my 1413 in its stock. I want to get two (or more) to fit the new to me wood stock I got a while ago.
Stippling is done and the refinishing is almost done. Next will be epoxy bedding and I need the screws to accomplish that.
Where to go to buy some?

Metric fine. McMaster Carr has them. Most hardware stores have metric coarse.

J&P Custom Products has sets of action screws for Anschutz rifles. They will also custom make them to the length you desire, available in two different screw heads.

M6 X 0.75

Somebody is finally making these available at a fair price.

J&P will charge you about $25 EACH for a pair.

McMaster Carr will charge about $6 EACH after shipping for a pair.

About $2 EACH here delivered for a pair.

I bought a 10 pack and they were less than $1 EACH delivered...Tom

Small screws...........

Take a look at the Brownells web site. They sell an assorted box of 4 and 6mm screws for around $20. They are all socket head screws. Had I seen your request sooner, I would have sent you two screws for free!

Try Ace/True Value. Most of their stores have a very good selection of different bolt styles and threads.

You last two fellows mean well but don't realize how hard it is to find M6 X 0.75.

M6 X 1.0 are easy.

Unless something has changed, and the only change I am aware of is the ebay seller I linked above...Tom

Thank all for suggestions and where to buy. I did order 6 screws from the ebay seller (in China) Upon careful examination of my new (old) stock, the rear screw hole in front of the trigger guard, has a seating area (the place that the screw head seats) that is square. The forward one, at the back of the accessory rail, has what looks like a curved or tapered seat. That means I will need to re-shape the seating area of the new screw, or find a properly shaped one. Don't have a lathe but do have an electric drill and some good files.
Area 51 guy, if your the screws have a tapered or curved seat, I will take you up on your offer. I'll happily pay any shipping etc costs.
I attached photos of the stock after two weeks of work. Its sitting on top of the case I made to transport my match Annie.

I've used the socket head cap screws available through ebay. Shipment from China takes some time.

I chucked them in a drill press and used a file to reduce the diameter of the head, reduce head's thickness, and to reshape its seating area. I reblued before using them.

The two shaped screws started out as cap head screws, shaped and finished as Guy explained.

You don't even need a drill press, you can clamp a hand drill in a vise.

I wrap the threads with masking tape to protect them from the chuck, or cut them to length as the last step...Tom

One question, how long are the screws in question? I checked the screws I have on hand and the underside of the head is cut flat.

Thomasconnor is right on the money with these screws being hard to come by. After picking up a 54 Sporter action I went looking for screws almost everywhere with no luck and ordering they were pretty pricy without knowing if they would be exactly what I need. I picked up an entire cap screw blank kit with I think it is 4, 6, 8, and 10mm blanks. I will shorten the top of the cap screw and then turn the bottom side to get the height I want, thread the blanks and have screws with all the same size Allen and fit flush. M6x.75 is not easy to find so this will work for me.
