1st time Weatherby has disappointed me, need trigger info

I was lightening up my trigger on my Mark V (US model) per the instruction on the website and backing out the trigger pull set screw. Unfortunately I went too far, it fell to the ground and now is lost! So I call Weatherby to find the thread pitch so I can go get another one. They refused to give me the thread pitch and inform me that I have to send it into a service center! I can't believe this....

Do anyone happen to know the size/pitch of this set screw?

Thanks

No wonder weatherby's name is rarely seen around these parts!

You were working with the fire control-the trigger assembly, right?

How do you spell "Product Liability"?

It is not unusual for firearms manufacturers to refuse to sell replacement parts for certain assemblies and instead, require the firearm to be returned to the factory. You can thank the insurance industry and this country's legal system for that.



Customer service probably doesn't know the thread size for that screw, just the part name & number.
