Default Where to buy one 3 x 8mm screw?

Hi All:

Where to get only 2 3 x 8 mm screws without paying $7.99 for shipping? My OS 40LA is missing a screw for the backplate.

Or can it be replaced by standard screws?

Thanks all.

Doug's Hobby shop in Waldorf Maryland sells them for a dollar or two in packages of 4 from DuBro.

Those parts should be eligible for the reduced price shipping Tower has for "Parts Express". My LHS will order parts and thus save me the shipping cost.

Try your local Ace Hardware. I got muffler mounting screws for my OS .40LA there.

Lowes should have it as well. 3mm is the smallest they carry, which will work fine in your case.
