Any gun shops near you?
They should have the proper screws.

Otherwise you can order them from Mdway & Brownell's.

You probably got 6-48 and you probably need 8-40.

If the screws that came with the weaver base are too small (diameter) for the tapped holes in your rifle, there is a pretty good chance you'll need to enlarge the thru holes in the base. It's not hard to do with the right tools, but it's something to be aware of.

The correct size for your rifle should be an 8-40 screw pitch and if you have a weaver base you want weaver oval heads on the screws not fillister heads. Either slotted heads or socket heads drive with an appropriate length. Not sure about the length for your base.
