the part I need is the "receiver plug retainer screw" it holds the receiver plug retainer. the retainer allowed the receiver plug to back out on me today. this caused malfunctions. I cleared the jams and noticed the plug was loose. when I got home, I removed the stock and the retainer fell on floor. I can't find the screw and don't know if it fell out in my shop or fell out elsewhere, I search on my hands and knees with a strong flashlight and can't find it!! dam the luck!!

is this a special screw or is it a machine screw that a gunsmith may have on hand??

It is a special screw in that the end in tapered.
One could be easily made from a standard screw if it is a standard thread.
But I don't know if it is or not.
