93 mauser action screw thread

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.

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.
