    No4 T cheek riser screws

    Hi gang,

    Has anyone a source for replacement brass or steel cheek riser screws? They donít have to be original, just need to play the part and preferably in Canadaicon if possible.



    Thanks in advance!

    Jon

    They are, I believe, 8 gauge wood screws with slotted heads; the the front screw being 1 1/2" long the rear being 1 1/4" long. This is so the rear screw doesn't risk breaking into the cavity for the oil bottle.

    I know the books say that brass was acceptable, but I have never seen anything other than blued steel on an original cheek piece.

    Has anyone seen brass?

    Would absolutely concur. I've never seen brass screws on unmessedabout with 4T's. The only time I've seen brass cheekpiece screws on Enfield snipers is on the Lithgowicon HT's.

    Brass or steel, a decent supplier of cabinet-makers fittings should have them in stock. Look for places that specialize in parts, fittings and finishing material for furniture restoration.

    For old school slot drive and non-plated fasteners, I order from these guys: Blacksmith Bolt & Rivet Supply

    Their stuff is already chemical blackened, and priced right.

    eBayUK still has old school slotted wood screws listed.

    Personally when I have seen old school slotted wood screws for sale, if they have been at a good price and I have thought that they may be of use to me, I have purchased them.

    I do exactly the same. It's becoming harder to find slotted screws that are also not plated! If the OP cannot source any suitable in Canadaicon I can probably find him a set if he wants to pm me.

    1.25" & 1.5" Steel Countersunk woodscrews

    Sorry - I couldn't resist. I have more than I need if anyone wants a pair and will cover my costs - pm me. The 1.25" ones have just started to get the odd rust spot - I can feel some WD40 coming on. It took a long time to find these as they are not stocked in any hardware shops anymore.
