Magazine Catch Screw Stripped

1643 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  JR
Due to some slight carelessness (PERHAPS on my part...) in taking apart my rifle, the screw that attaches my magazine catch to the barrel of my L96 (utg) has become stripped. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement? Normal hardware stores dont seem to have them, nor does Radio Shack.

Try a screw from a laptop :) check it's not too long though as it can go all the way through.
Dammit another reason to hate Apple :p
Ask around and see if anyone has one lying around or try a computer repair shop I would expect them to charge pennies if anything at all.
Have a wee hunt around there are loads of things to take apart and see if you can find a matching screw (video machines, tape recorders etc) make sure they are broken first though.
you will be surprised what you will find :D

I just realised I am showing my age there what the heck is a tape recorder lol
Updated for current times (CD players, DVD players) although they are becoming extinct too I suppose :p
