Sako Optilock ~Help~!?!?!

I just picked up a Sako 75 Stainless/Synthetic and was putting a Zeiss scope on it. As I was putting the last screw into the ring, the allen head broke off. ARGH! I tried some spare Leupolds I had, but not the same. Sportsman's didnt have any extra or spares around. I have no idea where I am going to find another one of these. Does anyone have a spare I could buy, or an idea where I could pick one up?? Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Re: Sako Optilock ~Help~!?!?!

Hey Yotes, thanks for the offer, I dont have a pair of calipers at the moment. I suppose I could go buy a set if I had to. This is just one of those 8 screws that holds the top portion of the ring to the bottom part of the ring. They are blued and were brand new with the gun, so they have to be a current/modern set of Optilocks. Thanks again!

I would get ahold of Beretta USA. They will send you one out no charge. I don't have a # handy but I bet it can be found on the net.

Beretta can be reached @ 301 283-2191.

I need a set of plastic ring inserts for my 1" Opti-lock rings. Anyone have a suggestion as to where they may be found? I wrote a letter to Beretta but they did not respond to this particular question.

Don't get only one spare screw--my experience with Sako ring screws has not been good. Most of them are much too hard/brittle and they have broken just under the screw head.
