Exclamation I need a Leupold Torx screw!

HELP!

I'm missing a Leupold Torx Screw (the black one) for the Leupold PRW/QRW rings! I'm just missing one and I hate to buy a $39+ screw kit just for ONE screw!

Where can I get a replacement screw with the same screw pitch and head size? I went to Home Depot and OSH and they don't have it!

Can anyone spare ONE Leupold Torx screw! I'll pay for it + shipping. If not, I'll cannibalize one off from my other Leupold mounts.

Get it from Leupold free of charge. Customer service department. Tell them you need one because you lost it or damaged it.

You can also get a standard hex head screw of the same thread size and it'll work just fine while waiting for one from Leupold.

Just take one of your screws in and match it for length, head size, and thread spacing.

The Leupold screws are size T15, if that helps - don't know the length, but I believe it's an 8-40 thread.

+1 for getting it free from Leupold Customer Service.

They are GREAT! I used some Leupold rings on my Savage 10FP, and two of the Torx screws were too short... a quick call to Leupold, and I had a pack of 4 new (longer) screws in the mailbox within days.
