What are the sizes if the screws that clamp the mount to the scope? I want to pick up a few extras to use instead of the originals. I'm concerned about stripping the head of the screws trying to tighten them so the scope won. won't move forward.

I tried to PM you but couldn't access your information.

I have found a #6-40 to be the closest that I have tried, it just don't feel like I would want it to in my one "good" threaded ring mount. It Kind of Boogs down after 2.5- 3 turns. steelap, can you post the size of the screws that worked for you?

Well, I picked up my rifle (finally!), and I love it! A mix of Italian and SA parts, looks to be in good shape, and the crate is fun (although I wish mine was green and had the handles), but...

My scope seems to have some problems. It's blurry when viewed from the eyepiece, and if you squint you can make out the blurry form of the crosshairs. When viewed from the target-end (objective side?), everything looks clear.

I have another M1D, so it's not a case of me not putting my eye in the right spot.

I contacted PSA, but I'm not holding out much hope that they'll help. I'm leaning toward sending it off for repair somewhere, but I'm considering buying the manual and trying to take it apart myself too. I'm not great, but I'm in no rush and comfortable making simple tools.
