Try calling Brownells and ask to speak to one of their gunsmiths.

Its most likely a size 0 or 1, as to thread pitch without having to sight to try different ones i can't help. Brownells does ( or did) stock a screw assortment including 0 & 1 screws. NOT something you are going to find at ACE hardware..

As a worst-case last-ditch effort, you could try using some blue Loctite to snug it up -- once you get it placed exactly where you want it -- or you could muck up a few threads so it screws in tighter (is definitely a last-ditch fix).

Thanks Guys. I'll call Brownells today and keep the blue loctite in mind just in case.
