    X-bolt base screw thread

    Anybody any idea what thread the screws are for the bases all i know is hey don't appear to be metric need longer ones

    I'd be surprised if they are not metric, as the rifle is made in Japan.
    They may well be an in-between size though, and a fine thread rather than standard.

    I would be very surprised if they are not the standard #6-48 found on most rifles. Could be wrong...~Muir

    The bolts are about 2.5mm in diameter so very in between i also thought they would be metric but don't seem to be

    The problem i have is with a set of warne weaver base is the screws supplied only protrude from the base buy at most 2-3 threads at most
    So they are not going to hold very well and probably just strip the threads in the receiver if you tried to tighten them

    Yes 6-48 would be my bet.

    Ok, I just dragged out the X-Bolt rings and bases I have for sale on here.
    Back of the pack says base screws are either 6-48 or 8-40.
    EDIT: Ok just measured and googled them, they are 6-48, and the ones with my bases and rings measure
    .264" x 4 off and .290" x 4 off for the thread length, so different size screws are needed.
