I'm glad you questioned and confirmed 28TPI.............In truth, I can only recall that info from memory, as I haven't had access to prints or OP sheets since I seperated from Marlin in late 2010.............I've been able to retain alot of other pertinent Marlin info in my head, (which Amazes my wife)...........but certainly not everything.
I was sitting here this morning, wondering if 28TPI could possibly be correct. The more I thought about it, the more I wondered if I'd given the correct info, but so many of the other specific Marlin gun threads are 32 TPI, and the thread length is so short, which would allow a 32TPI to probably work, I didn't think 28TPI could be correct...... Although, 28TPI would explain how the "other guy" settled on a #12-28 thread, wouldn't it?
Yes, I believe you are correct at 28 TPI, and with that, I can see why you've had NO complaints..........
I guess I "muddyed the waters" on you this morning, and I should have just had MORE coffee!

My last post was done with the assistance of my computer literate daughter and somehow I was hacked into myself quoting Tomray. Anyway, I wish Congress could get along as well as we do! AC
Alan, I'm glad you stepped up and gave us all "the rest of the story", now it makes sense. Knowing as little as I do about machining parts, I thought someone was gouging customers, which turns out to be the opposite of the truth. I still think the price is higher than I'd be willing to pay, but at least I now understand why it is.........It's a Damned Good Screw!
"The gun has been called the great equalizer, meaning that a small person with a gun is equal to a large person, but it is a great equalizer in another way, too. It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed." (Ronald Reagan)

An excellent discussion with a common sense outcome! Nice Job!
I can also tell you that the screws Alan supplies fit as well as the factory screws with no problems. If you ever do have an issue, he will stand behind it.

the screw interfers with the "carry"--not comfortable-- dont like em for that reason
I bought 3 of the "bad screw" from Brownell. They are still in my parts box. I have always wanted a couple of take down screws with the intention of swapping them into the guns I was going to take on each hunt. I normally take a primary and a back up rifle (murphy is my friend). I thought that a tooless take down screw would be a good idea on my hunting gun, then swap back to the original screw when cleaning it up from the hunt.
I just PM'd screw guy asking for more info on how to get a "right" screw version. I don't need any more "wrong" ones.
" An objection is normally created due to lack of knowledge"----couldn't be more true here. Congratulations--excellent thread handled by very polite people acting as true professinals.
