I'm building a 93 mauser action (haven't done one of these in a while) and I need some custom length action screws. Does anyone out there remember the thread pattern. If I have the numbers I can cut them on my lathe. They are about 1/4 X 22tpi but thats just a guess. Please someone post the correct thread pattern so I can do it right. :D:D

Your guess is correct, or as close as you can get.

The bottom metal will not work right for feeding if the longer or shorter screws are needed.

Thanks guys, I will try the 1/4 x 22 and see how it goes. No worries about the bottom metal. Not using it anyway. Totally custom application. May post some pictures later.
