    Ive been hunting for one for a couole weeks mate. No joy as yet. If you get one pm me with where from. I shall reciprocate. If I cant find one in the next week or so im just gonna contact surefire directly. They sent me a new mount gratis when my old one broke so im sure a wee grub screw wont be an issue.

    I think your best bet will be surefire mate, otherwise it'll be a case of buying a whole new mount...
    Could try and go to a local builders merchant as they'll more than likely have something to replace it with

  6. Pop in to your nearest armourer shop, they should have a selection of small screws to fix it.

    I've repaired a few over the years that we swapped with USMC lads on tour.

    Try a model, preferably one that sells remote control plans etc.

  10. Finding a supplier isn't difficult. Finding the size you want when you're left with a threaded hole is a bit more complex.

    If you can find somebody with the same bit of kit, ask them to take the grub screw out and measure it, preferably against a screw thread gauge.

    Then try RS Components: Buy GRUB SCREW online from RS Components
  11. Surefire will replace them
