    I have a Mossberg 590A1. It is missing the screws that plug the holes on the top of the receiver where the ghost ring sight is usually attached. I found the screws available through Brownells but they only come in a pack of a dozen. Anyone know where I can find these screws individually? I believe they are 8-40

    Without the head style and length it's hard to help. But I doubt you'll find them by the piece. Selling two or three screws for $.50 each is not something most sellers want to deal with over the net. I did buy a single thumb safety retaining screw for my vintage Colt 1903 over the net, but it was $25.00.

    Thanks guys. I sent an email to Mossberg requesting them and believe it or not they sent me 4! It took a while, but I sure am impressed with their customer service.

    It would have cost them more in bank fees to process the card than the screws would cost.

    Head to a hardware store and get some allen set screws to put in.

    ACE is my go-to.
