Nelspot 007 screw sizes

I just received a Nelspot in need of some restoration. Would anyone (B ) know the threading and length of the following screws: 1. holds the valve to the frame rail, 2. holds the frame rail to the barrel, 3. holds grip to the frame rail, 4. the valve retention grub screws. Thanks in advance!

Nelspot Screw sizes

Most questions shall be revealed to you in the following link.

Damn I wish I hadn't given Pyrate the tech diagram that Nelson Paint Company sent me last year.

Actually -B- most likely will know. Hopefully he will respond to the thread.

Thanks for the link TouchofGrey, unfortunately it doesn't list the size of the screws. I haven't seen them listed anywhere on the net (I had a slow week at work, and looked at a lot of info through google-fu in anticipation of my new arrival!).

I broke out the micrometer and found a decimal to fractional (and screw size) chart and came up with the following:


1. Are the grip screws, these appear to be 6-32 x 7/16" Phillips oval head.

2. Is the screw to attach the frame rail to the barrel, it appears to be 8-32 x 1/4" Phillips flat head.

3. Is the screw to attach the valve body to the frame rail/grip frame, it appears to be 10-32 x 1 5/16" Phillips round head with only the first 0.04" threaded.

The 3 grub/set screws (missing and not pictured) should be 8-32 x about 3/32" hex head set-screws.


My gun is also missing the 2 screws that hold the grip frame to the frame rail.


1. Hole for screw #2 from above.

2. Missing front frame rail screw. Threaded 10-32, probably a Phillips flat head about 1/4" long.

3. Missing back frame rail screw. Threaded 10-32, maybe a Phillips round head no longer than 1/4", possibly shorter.

4. Hole for screw #3 from above.

I'll probably hit the hardware store for some stainless steel replacements next week. A 007 was my first gun back in '88, and I still regret selling it. I'm very excited about restoring this one.

Nelson may very well have some of those OEM screws. You might try giving them a call. All but the set screws would look better imho, as OEM screws. The set screws are pretty un-noticable.
