    They should be 6-48 x 1/8" long.

    The filler screws from the receiver work fine if you still have them.

    Try your local gunsmith- They take them out when they mount scopes and should have plenty.

    I bought a small box of screws from Midway, blued, different sizes, just for this purpose. Have a rifle that scope screws were lost when mounts removed, fit perfectly.
