    Grip nut question.

    Hello Everyone.

    For some reason the grip screw uses an Allen key. After i removed it, I have managed to misplace it. Where can i get another one? Or do you know the thread size and the length so i can pick one up from Home Depot or Ace?

    Thanks for your help.

    UPDATE: OK, the XCR grip nut threads are NOT the same as the AR. They are 1/4" x 20 and 1" long is just fine. anything longer may just be a bit too long and run into the FCG area. Thanks for all the help folks! Regards FD

    Don't know the exact size, but I'm 99% sure it just an AR sized fastener.

    ETA: Disregard above, I was wrong..... :duh:

    A quick search yields 1/4-28 x 1" (art.com)

    Flat head screws work, but usually takes me a couple of attempts. Hex head screws are easier to install.

    Bought half dozen at Ace a few months back after misplacing one.

    Just a quick word, I think it might be not the same as an AR........

    Pretty sure it's a rougher pitch than the AR screws. When installing a Magpul grip you can't use the supplied screw.

    For the record it is not the same, having recently experienced the same issue. I installed a BCM Mod 1 grip (Awesome BTW) and ended up having to use the original screw provided by Robarm.

    I'm pretty sure the threads are 1/4 20 and the length is somewhere around 1 1/4 inches.Make sure the replacement screw is close to the original because it will interfere with the safety/trigger if not.It is NOT the same as AR thread pitch.

    Another item worth mentioning is that the hole is not always bored completely through.In other words the screw,if too long will bottom out in the hole,AND if you go too far may be difficult to remove.I think a one inch screw should be long enough to work for the grip fine with no danger of bottoming out.

    1/4" x 28 screw with a 1-1/16" length is a standard AR screw.
