Picked up a decent 95 in 35 Winchester. Someone installed a Providence Tool Co. 21 receiver sight on it. Sight had been removed but hole for lever pin stop screw was tapped out with the Providence supplied tap 11-36. I have read that these screws were three differnt sizes 9-36,10-36 and 11-36 on the Lyman 21. Don’t know if that is true of not. Question is can I buy a stopscrew 11-36 for the 95 or do I have to single point one on the lathe? Thanks in advance for any help.

Mike,  I would ask Winchester Bob what size he has.  I suspect it is not the size you are after, as his are for original Lyman model 21 sights, but it never hurts to ask.  His site does not list the sizes of his screws, etc, other than length.  Other than that, if you personally have the equipment and skill, why not make your own?  Tim

When in doubt I try finding a screw that works in the threads or use a tap to find the correct pitch.  A good fastener hardware store might be able to help you but I’m not sure they will let you bring the gun in for fitment?  If you can find a screw that fits they surely can measure the pitch.

Have plenty of pitch gauges, am a machinist by trade. Just wondered what the pitch of the original hole was in the 1895 and why Winchester would change specs on the stopscrew three times in less than 40 years? Seems unlikely. The Providence Tool 21 is supplied with number 11-36 2 flute tap supposedly to allow for drilling and tapping a smaller factory hole to the number 11 ID. At any rate I can turn one on the lathe. Just as soon buy original replacement parts for less bother.
