I pulled the rear sight off my Rem 700 BDL and need some plug screws to fill the holes tapped in the barrel for the sight ramp. Any idea on the size and thread pitch of said plug screws?

Thank you!

Off to Home Depot (kidding). Time to give Brownell's a call.

Pretty sure there are two types actually - those with a rim and those without. The filler screws with the rim will screw in & stop, leave a little bump on the barrel. Sticks out just a touch. The ones without a rim will screw in until they bottom out. You can screw them in until they're flush with the barrel & use a touch of loctite if they are loose. I use ones without the rim & seat flush.
