I was the member with the black grip screws.

They are all gone but I still have some SS ones.

Gorgeous, and nice display.

I'm a newbie to this...would you recommend stocking up on grip screws?  I'm already doing so with recoil springs...Wolff assured me that they will keep supplying them, but I am paranoid.

Gonna bump this and hope for some responses.

Does anyone know the size, specs, etc of the original grip screws.  I'm going to start stocking up on parts that are likely to need replacing and/or prone to breaking, and grip screws would be amongst those. I know I was able to buy a box of replacement screws for my Remington RM380...it was not a particularly uncommon size, and I just bought a box of 100 or so for, if memory serves, like $25.  That certainly would be the way to go if these screws aren't proprietary to the Rohrbaugh.

Ref. the grip screws. . . . . . They are a standard screw but of an odd size making you buy a box of 1,000 at a time!
No, unfortunately, I don't recall the actual size or name of the screw. I'm sure if you went to a machinist supply house, they would be able to tell you the size and pitch of the threads. Getting old I suppose, sorry.

Check out this old thread.  About halfway through the second page the conversation turns to grip screws.

So it is 1/16", but I would still need to know the recommended length, correct?

I think the size of the screws are:   #3 (3/32") by 48 (48 threads per inch) Countersunk Flat Head for Hex Wrenches by 1/4" long.

Now, where to get them is a big problem, especially if you want stainless.  They are quite uncommon as Eric alluded to.  Good luck.

Added later:

I looked up McMaster-Carr and it looks like they have them.  Please verify my size to be sure.

Could you possible post a link to the specific screw you bought?  I stared at the page MRC linked too above and--no surprise--I'm apparently too slow to figure out exactly which screws I need.  (Can't seem to find the one that matches the specs discussed above.). 

Thanks very much!!

Perfect.  Just ordered a box myself.  One less part to worry about as I endeavor to stock up on R9 components.

Thanks much!

That is the right screw according to the CAD drawing from the other thread.

I hope that guy is right as I did not check anything.  Good luck.     :) :)
