Bottom Line and .45 Screw Sizes

Title says it all. What type of screws do you use for a standard bottom line and for .45 grips? Can they be picked up at Lowe's or Menard's?

Once again, I've got a new marker I'm trying to get up and running.

Bottom line screws are 10/32. As for the 45 grip screws they vary depending on the Mfg. All should be available at your local hardware store.

They're #10-32 Machine screws, and the majority of .45 grip threads are #6-32 Machine screws, but can be #8 or even #10, a pic or name of your frame will let us be able to tell you for sure.

I've also seen other thread sizes, as well as distance between the threads, but 10/32 does seem to be most common for newer guns.

While you can find 10/32 screws at any hardware store, the kind with counter-sunk heads are actually somewhat hard to find. None of the local hardware stores carried them, though I did find them at home-depot. Same for the panel screws. They had the screws, but not the right head type. grrr..

It's a slider frame on a sniper clone. It's the I&I sports lightning sniper, actually. I couldn't pass up on it for 90 bucks.

If I remember correctly, the bottom line is 10-32 and the grip panel screws are metric on the Lightnings.
