I have a 95 rifle that had a Providence Tool co. rplica of the Lyman 21 mounted. The Providence sight includes an 11-36 tap for mounting the sight. The Finger lever pin stop screw has been drilled and tapped out to this size. I removed the Providence sight and mounted a Redfield 102E which I much prefer. It covers the rear mounting holes but I’m left with the pin stop screw hole empty. I read somewhere that Winchester used a number 9, 10 and 11 size screw over the production life of the 1895. Seems illogical to me but may be true. Homestead arms makes a replacement but can’t find any info on diameter and pitch. Anyone know this? Or perhaps I will have to make one on the lathe.

Can this part be taken to a quality hardware store where you could try the different screws?  Not a box store.

Proprietary thread size, pretty sure not stocked in any hardware store. Just wondered if someone on here know what thread size was on Homestead Arms replacement screw. I’m a retired machinist so may just have to make one.

Mike:

Art Pirkle’s books are a good resource for screw size data and they are inexpensive!  He lists the Model 1895 Finger Lever Pin Stop Screw as “11-36”.

Thank you very much!! I will order one from Homestead Arms. Should solve the problem. I will look into Art’s books as well, I have seen them at gun shows for sale in the past.

Regards, Mike
