I need the screw and spring for the rear of the rib, that adjusts the rib up and down, I would actually want one that is 1/4 inch longer than the original screw, I will put Blue Loctite on it so it will not fall out like the last on e did.

I tried a lot of metric screws but canno0t find the correct size, a 4mm will try but it is larger in diameter, they think it is a 6-40 thread I think is is close to a 3.5mm very fine thread, but I cannot find one.

Any gunsmiths know what size it is?

A 4mm fine thread is too big in diameter, the first thread will catch, I am thinking 3.5mm fine thread

Gary, myself and a friend had trouble with our xt unsingles.
one half of the adjuster screw head broke off. I had no luck finding one at browning, however they did give me the part number. I called Western Gun Parts in Edmonton Alberta, Canada and by god they had them there so I ordered and received three.
If you can't find em in the USA Give them a call. Rick Morgan, Victoria BC Canada

If you can post the outside diameter of the screw OR toe inside diameter of the hole, I could figure out what size it is. Then it would be a lot easier to help find the fix. You can PM me if you like.

Have you tried browning parts? I just ordered a couple things last week. Find your part, print off an order form and fax back. Minimum order is like $5.00 and shipping is around $8.00. So I ordered a couple extra springs to get up to the $7.00 mark. They have exploded schematics of each firearm so you should be able to get an actual factory replacement and then locktite. Just a thought...

What a wealth of information there is on this site: NOKNOCK1 came up with the correct information and PM'd me with it and I ordered the parts from Browning this morning. Thanx again to all and a special thanks to NOKNOCK 1
