Thread size/pitch for sheridan 12 gram plug?

I need to pick up a tap to retrace the threads for the 12 gram plugs on some sheridans I am working on.
So I was wondering if anyone knew the thread size and pitch and where I could pick up the right tap?

Also, just to clarify, I do need the tap for the inside of the threads of the lower tube.

Thanks and as usual any help is greatly appreciated!
-Dan

The thread pitch is 28tpi I'm pretty sure. I can't remember the major diameter though.

Thanks Smiley! I just placed an order but I didn't meet the minimum with one tap so I ordered two. If someone wants one of the two just pm me.

Dang! I am a total space case! I should have bought one for the valve retaining nut also! When we find that out I would be up for making another order or picking one up from someone.
Thanks again guys,

From Chris Mader's site... Just found it....

Quote:
Sheridan 12 gram CO2 knob threads: 13/16-28
Taps at MSC: Bottoming, Plug, Taper.

Sheridan valve retaining nut threads: 21/32-32
This is a custom tap. You won't find it 'off the shelf'.
