    Soak the threads with a thread cleaner/ rust inhibitor then scrub with a .22 cal brush. Most of these threads a not "common". You could take the screw to a Lowe's, they usually have boards in the nut & bolt section with marked screws & bolts to compare thread designation. Most Win. screws are "fine" ie 1/4 28 vs 1/4 20

    Call Tom Larkin at the Stock Shop and explain your plight, he will tell you what size they are ... I have several screws but would be guessing to tell you the size for the tap ... Maybe take the screw you have to a hardware store and see if they can help you out ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    If what you are calling a trigger screw is the screw that holds the trigger guard into the receiver on a model 12, I believe it is 3/16ths by 36 Threads per inch.

    You can get a complete set of screws for the Winchester Model 12 for less than $25.00 I saw them in a catalog from the Mfgr of the A-10 yesterday at the gun club. I think it is Connecticut Fireams, there were 4 copies of their catalog laying on the tables.

    They also build model 21s.

    I think Wrights sells a complete set of screws for the Model 12s

    He stated clearly that he wants to retap the threads on the reciever not clean up the screw itself ... WPT ... (YAC) ...
