long Rem 700 guard screws???

Where could I find long trigger guard screws in stainless? Hex head preferred but will use slotted.

Thanks

Pete

The action screws are 1/4x28tpi and can be found at most hardware stores. You can also find them in Brownell's.

You will have to bevel the back side of the screw head and trim to length. (Easy).

I change all of my action screws to hex head because they are easier to torque.

Local hardware has no stainless. Neither do the big blue or orange box stores.

And Brownell's apparently only has blued. Looking for stainless not only for appearance but also corrosion resistance.

I'm going to have to order from McMaster-Carr then trim and dress as needed.

Thanks for the leg work!

Re: long Rem 700 guard screws???

Brownells does have guard screws for the 700 in S.S. ,,,, they're just not of the "extra long" variety. Many of those screws that are used with S.S. actions are chrome plated, not S.S. The reason. S.S against S.S. can gall badly without lubrication. Add lub to any threaded conection and the torque values change. As for "the added corrosion resisitance",,,,,,, blouder dash! 416R can and will rust. If I thought I just had to have S.S. screws for appearance sake, I'd buy the long blued ones, fit 'um, and bake on some a 'aluminum' colored spray paint. Problem solved without a lot of 'hoop-la'.

I have long guard screws for sale on my web store Montour County Rifles

I have stainless and blued. They're exrta long so they will need to be cut and fitted.

Thanks

Kevin
