Re: Torx Action Screws?
That's the correct thread pitch - but those as still 5/32 hex screws.. I'm looking for some with a T40 (+/- 10) Torx style head.
I agree - first thing I do to my rifles is remove the slot head action screws and replace them with stainless hex screws, only problem is on some of my rifles (Savages are the worst), the 5/32 hex can have just enough wiggle room that under high torque (60+ in/lbs), the hex hole strips. The Torx heads can take the heavy load more repeatedly without getting worn out/loose - same deal as scope base/ring screws.
Thanks for the replies, and I am checking those 2 sources right now. So far, I have found one stainless Torx 1/4-28 bolt, but the threads go all the way up the bolt, and I'd prefer to have something with a bare shaft except for the last 1/3" of screw (so the threads don't mar up the aluminum pillars on my B&C and H-S stocks).
