    1893 plug screws

    What size are the holes in the top of an early 1893 receiver? An 8-40 will screw in just fine except it flops around like sock on a rooster if they are right I guess I could Loctite them.
    Thanks
    Phil

    They should be 8-40, so maybe it's the screws you have that are the issue? I buy plug screws from Brownells as they have the correct lip on their screws, plus the rounded head to ensure they wont go too deep. $20 per dozen.
