Stevens Favorite takedown screw question

292 1
Is the takedown screw in the Stevens Favorite a common thread that could be replaced w/s common Allen Head screw that fits flush w/the bottom of the receiver?
I own 2 of these rifles, a Mod 1915 and a modern Savage Mod.30 . And I would like to replace the original screws on both of them.
I know of a firm that makes replacement screws for the older rifles and I could probably get what I want there. But why if I could get one at a local hardware store. Wondering id there is any reason one wouldn't work? Thanks
