    Gator,

    All my mounts are Arisaka and I am getting .318 not quite .375. If you need 2 let me know and I have an extra inline mount that I can take he screws from. I will be at the range on Monday.

    It depends on the mount, and how thick it is where the screws are located. We use 1/4" (just the threads, not including the head). You said you need screws for an iwc, so I don't know what that uses.

    Thanks. I'm actually planning to hit the range in the morning, so if you're around, I'll gladly take a peek at what you got.

    I'm thinking the IWC must be compatible with the OEM screws, since I think I've somehow managed to repurpose some screws at some point. Not sure how I've ended up with a spare IWC mount without any fasteners, but I'm sure the defunct Streamlight is probably to blame...

    1/4" seems small, but I'm wondering if the .375" may work well enough. I'll see what Joel has and go from there....and probably call SF on Monday, as well.

    For what it's worth, the IWC screws are .318. I was able to find some .375" at Ace today and after a little grinding, problem solved. The .375" were definitely too long for the Arisaka body and the Thorntail mount.
