Some assistance please



Log in to see fewer ads
I am hoping someone can give a little assistance please.

I have set of BKL scope rings that I acquire second hand quite cheaply as one of the
top strap screws is missing.

I am quite familiar with metric system screws but less so with imperial.

Could anyone let me know what screw size it is so I can source a replacement.

It is a cap head Allen screw, that takes 9/64" key. The threaded part of the screw is slightly smaller than an M5 screw.

Much appreciated if you can assist thanks.

Regards
Dale

I would suggest you take it to a hardware store. Here they tend to have something in the screw department to check screws/nuts/bolts for size and pitch.

This is a youtube showing one.

Email BKL, they will probably send you one, or at least give you the info you need.

Being on the other side of the Atlantic, most of our hardware type stores stock metric screws, finding a stockist of Imperial screws is a bit more difficult and it is helpful to go in with at least some knowledge of what the screw is to start with, especially if I need to order online.

Tried that several months ago, I didn't even get a reply from them.
