    You can find the correct thread pitch & dia screws, but they are too long?

    Cut them off to the length you need.

    No kidding . How am I going to do it without screwing up the threads to the point that I trash a 105.00 mount with a 20 cent screw ?

    Well, for hardened screws, I use a Dremel cut-off wheel, and dress the end on a fine belt sander belt.
    For soft screws, a fine tooth hacksaw works fine.

    That is the way it is done by most gunsmiths.

    Cutting off a screw without messing up the threads ain't brain surgery.
