    M305 buttplate screws

    Hey guys,
    I took the metal buttplate off my norc m305 and when trying to reassemble it the head of the bottom
    Screw(long one) stripped. It basically melted like butter. Now the plate and the sling swivel are loose.
    Anyone know where to buy a new one?
    Thanks

    From what I understand its an odd ball thread that isn't all that common. Retapping the sling plate might be a better choice than replacement

    I'd check with Hungry, wouldn't be surprised if there was a home depot equivalent.
