Thread: Rear frame screw.

  1. #1

    Rear frame screw.

    What is the size and type of threading on the rear frame screws. I just received a NIB (And it clearly is a brand-new Micromag Rt valve) none of the 6 different frame screws which i have will thread into the valve threading. first-off, I guess I should make sure that the threading is the same as on every other AGD valve. I am pretty sure I would've heard of it was different, but you never really know. Anyways, assuming the threading is the same, what size and type is it, so I make sure to use the correct tapping die tomorrow when I get my tap and die set from my parents house. Also, has anyone ever had a problem like this with a brand-new valve? I thought it was a little odd myself. thanks guys

    I would make sure the hole is lined up.
    I don't want to give you the wrong threading, so I cant speak much on that.
    My sydarm weighs less than yours!!!

    It lines up. even trying to thread it in sans rail or body, it seizes up about halfway down the thread, or at least halfway down to where all of my other guns seem to bottom at.

    yes make sure that you aren't using a 10-24 screw, as i do know of some bodies that have had the coarser thread on the front. all valve bodies use 10-32 screws.

    Well, They are your standard AGD stock rear frame screws, So I doubt all of them are the wrong size. 10-32 tap it is. Thanks Luke

    "Rear" frame screw? Are you talking about the field strip screw, the one that's a big thumb screw and goes into the bottom of the valve itself? Or are you really talking about the 10-32 screw that goes right up above the trigger and holds the body/rail in place?

    The field strip screw

    Ok. In looking at them, I guess they're both 10-32 anyway.

    Exactamundo, look at the big brain on Brad...

    as much as the Vanquish was the first gun to have all of the same sized screws in the gun. the Mag was the first to accomplish it. 10-32 for field strip, frame and bottom line screws.

    The 10-24 has got to be a screw up, I wonder if it was re-threaded by installing the wrong screw?

    a member here told me about the small run that were wrongly threaded. i couldn't tell you exactly which bodies, just that they are 10-24. it was a first run of something, only a dozen got the treatment, so to speak. its not that big a deal, except when people decide to that cross threading = positive lock or even, "i'll grab any old screw cause they all be the same" knuckle-draggers.

    Don' ask questions. It is considered "trolling" in some locations.

    IIRC it was the IT bodies from way back that were 10-24 threaded.
