Replacement screws - Euroarms replica Colt 1851 Navy

I have a replica Colt 1851 Navy revolver made by Euroarms that I bought in Germany in the late 1970s. I've been looking for replacement screws for the trigger guard and backstrap.

I ordered five from the Winchester Sutler. They were the wrong size (too large). When I wrote to return them, the Sutler replied that Euroarms starting making that revolver in the 1950s and that their specs changed over time.

Can anyone confirm that?

Dixie Gun Works offers generic replacement screws for 1851 Navies, along with screw sets from Pietta and Umberti. Does anyone know which (if any) of those screws might fit a Euroarms-made revolver?

Can anyone offer another source?

I have replaced Euroarms parts with Pietta

I bought the screw set from Cabelas and had success in matching a Euroarms ASP 1860 Colt.

That pistol is from 1988.

I don't have the time to check right now, but I may have some screws that will work for you.

I would bring the frame to a well stocked hardware store and see if the correct threading can be determined by trial and error using the screws that they have in stock.
They may even have a screw that matches closely enough to work for the short term.
A small brass washer can be added if necessary.

I'm going to try Fingers' suggestion and see what S&S has to offer. If that doesn't work, I'll try Doc and/or Articap's suggestions.

Thanks, everyone.

The screws I ordered from S&S arrived yesterday, and fit just fine. Problem solved. Thanks, everyone.
