Default M1D Mount, Screw size

Does anyone know the size Hex-Wrench to use for the clamp screws on the M1D Mount? Thanks.

Original or repro? Originals use a 3/32" Allen wrench. Repros are probably a 1/8" Allen wrench. Bolt threads/size are 6-40X3/8". Be very careful when tightening originals. Because of the small hex socket and age of the originals they strip easily. Then they are impossible to get. If your rifle is to be a shooter it might be better to remove the originals, put them aside, and replace them with new screws. http://www.fulton-armory.com/set-scr...ope-mount.aspx

They really don't have to be exceptionally tight. 25 in/lbs or so should do it. Maybe less.

My original screws are in a labeled parts bag in the M1D bin.... I chose to use a pair of deep slotted fillister screws instead of the allen heads. I personally get a better feel for tightness with those, without worry of stripping the heads out.
