I was adjusting the trigger on a new Rem. 700, and they were really cemented in. After backing out the overtravel screw, the notch rounded out so that I can't use it. All I need is a replacement set screw of that length (fine thread, I believe) and Remington won't send me one because "Your gun is dangerous, don't touch it, send it back to the factory ASAP!!!" :cuss: Please, just send me the $.10 set screw!!
Does anyone know where I can look to find this set screw? I checked some auto parts stores, Home Depot, Lowes, etc. but all they have is coarse threads.

You would have to know what thread it is, but most any hardware store has metal drawers full of various Allen head & slotted set-screws in fine, course, metric, etc., in a wide range of diameters.
You might find something that will fit.
Or, you might not.
It may be a special gun thread Reminton uses to keep people from messing with the trigger adjustments.
