Where're can I find Allen head screws for a Mark V action to replace the original slotted screws.  I know they are 1/4 - 28 thread.
Thanks.

Brownell sells action screws, I don't know if they have them for Weatherby's. Midway has an even larger variety,  Good luck. Let us know if you have any luck. Have you tried calling Weatherby? If they don't stock them they might have better idea of were to look.

If you know the thread pitch/diameter, and the length of the bolt, you could check with a local bolt-and-screw/hardware distributor. Not a Lowe's or Home Depot, but a specialty place. They may have what you want or may be able to source it for you.

Thanks for the replies.  Went to the 2 largest bolt and nut distributors in the Phoenix area, they have some in stainless, but not long enough for the rear and I would need to grind the head a bit smaller in circumference.  Will call WBY today and check Midway.  I found some at the bolt dist. a few years ago that fit my 30/378 and .257 WBY Mark V's, but they must not be available now.  Should have purchased several sets extra.

Just purchased a new S2 30-06 it has the allen type action screws, are they allen or a star type? checked all my bit's and nothing fits. To me they look like star, this must be new for the Vanguards.

I just purchased a Vanguard S2 stainless in .308 Win.  The action screws are Torx T30.
