OK maybe not the, you know, end of the world :D, but there I was minding my own business, another nice morning at Angels Range. I'm enjoying a little casual AR shooting when suddenly I look down and notice a screw missing at the top of my Stag rail, take a look at the pic below.
Does anyone know where I might find a replacement ? Has anyone else lost a rail screw ? If anyone has one of these screws that you'd be willing to sell or trade for or whatever I'm ready to make a deal straight away.

My buddies stag did the exact same thing. I will call him and find out where he got his replacement screw.

Commonly known as a button-head hex screw. Take off the one right next to it and go down to your local OSH, match it up by OAL and thread pitch, and buy the bag of 6 for about 95-cents. It's really simple to do. While you're there, buy some blue Loctite to put on the threads.

I'm wondering the same thing :confused: They will probably just send you a new one for free. (End of the world?):TFH:

+1 They're not some special screw that only the Gods can grant you. Screws are cheap.

Blue Loctite has saved my bacon on so many occasions I can't even begin to count them. Keep it in your gun toolbox. Don't store it in the medicine cabinet, someone will confuse it for the toothpaste. Don't ask how I know this.

Well, at least their teeth will stay in place.:eek:

clear nailpolish will also do the trick for most screws, especially if u need to remove them on a regular basis.

Sadly, Loctite really tastes good. Don't ask how I know.
