A couple of thoughts, if you order VZ Grips they come with grip screws for their grips (not compatible with factory grips)

At one point I tracked down replacement Torx head screws that SHOULD work with factory grips, the only problem was that they were relatively expensive (IIRC around $6.00 each) and you had to purchase they in a quantity.

EDIT: Found the link, Iím still not sure they will work as it doesnít appear the threading goes close enough to the taper.

I'm wondering if grip screws for the RM380 will work?
Ordered some from Midwest Gun Works to see, I'll post if they work or not.

Reason I'm looking for some is that one stripped out on me and I'm going to have to either use a screw extractor or drill it out but I'm leaving it in for now until I can get a replacement.

You can probably get them from William's Gunsights who is the warranty station for Rohrbaughs.

Looking at those VZ grips and I just may order a set.
Even if I do order a set I would still like to get some replacement OEM screws

Thanks

Let us know what you find out WLJ, I am thinking an extra set or two might be a good idea.

My favorite factory Rohrbaugh VZ combo is the all silver Tribute with the blue/black grips.  The Custom and Special Forces have factory black VZ.

The last time I checked, Williams had them for around $6. The problem is they charge about $15-20 for shipping, so you need to order a few items to make it worth your while.

The 4 RM380 screws I ordered from Midwest Gun Works came in and despite not having the same inside bevel as the OEM screws they seem to work fine.
Waiting on the VZ grips.
