Greetings,
I have a 98 mauser that needs a little head. It is in great condition but the rear sight base set screw was Bubba fixed....the wrong screw was forced into the hole. I think there is enough metal to recap the screw hole with the appropriate tap.
Question, what is the thread pitch for the rear sight set screw on a 98 mauser?
Thx
Heath

I am away from home right now so can't measure one but I'll bet it is some odd metric thread that you can't get a tap for. I would chase the hole with a 6-48 tap and find a scope mount screw that looks correct.
