i need two screws

i want to reuse some winchester supergrade sling swivel's .they are about 1 1/4" by 1/2" , and have a screw front and rear. what i need are 2 screws with bushings or inserts or whatever you call them for the forearm one. i guess using wood screws in a forearm may split it, so these metal bushings are first drilled then inserted in and possibly glued. the sling swivels are inletted some, and then screwed in, they are machine type screws.

anyways, i need the 2 flat tipped screws and bushings, anyone know a source ? they are most likely a standard size and any machine type front swivel screw will work as long as the are blued .

thanks all, for any help.

I would contact grov-Tec in Milwaukie, Oregon. The owner, Bob Grover, was the head of manufacturing for Michaels of Oregon. When Michaels was bought out, manufacturing went to China and Bob opened his own shop. His sling swivels are, if anything, superior to the original Michaels product. He probably has the stuff you need, or can make it.
