Hi Doing a little maintenance on my scope and lost a screw. It's one of those button head screws that goes around the rim on each end and also fastens the finder wedge to the scope. Miking it, it could be a m4 or an 8-32 SAE. I don't want to strip the threads so I want to get the right screw.

 

Thanks,

Paul
