Would anybody possibly know what thread patern and size Sako Optilock ring screws are?

I stripped 2 of the Hex heads while mounting a new scope on my Sako 75 and would like to replace all of them with Torx head screws. I've looked all over the Sako and Beretta web sites and even emailed the question to Beretta (no answer yet) but I can't seem to find the answer anywhere

 

Thanks in advance

Just take a sample of the screws or the whole mount to a nut and bolt centre, or engineering supplies. They will kit you out at a fraction of the cost. I did that with my Leupold mounts.

Beretta sells the cap screws!!

$6.00 a piece, if I remember correctly.

 

BAD design for being as expensive as they are.....

I REALLY didn't like mine. Sorry about yours....
