Where can I find the two screws to mount my ACOG to the TA51. I lost them several years ago. I really don't want to order them through Trijicon.

Look at it this way. You paid $$$ for a TA51, what's a few dollars for OEM specific screws.

Nah, there's customer service is top notch. If you call on Monday, I think you should get it by Friday.

If I remember right, they are 10/32 1/2" machine screws. Trijicon will sell them to you; but it is pricy.

A couple of years back, I needed similar screws. I didn't have the dimensions and they didn't know them off hand so they mailed them out to me. The person at customer service said it cost them pennies to make, the most expensive part was the stamp.

Have you tried a True Value or a local hardware store? I can't imagine that Trijicon machines their own screws in house, they most likely sub them out. Therfore I bet you can find the right size locally, they are just screws after all.

Go down to your local hardware store and you can find them. I can't remember the size right off hand, sorry.

Went to the local Ace hardware store and bought black 10-32x 3/8 screws. Worked perfect.
