Default J-Frame grip screw question

I have a Model 36, ser #553684 and I am having a devil of a time finding the a correct grip screw for the factory grips. The screw is a narrower diameter than the screws in some of my other j-frames, I know the grips are correct because they are numbered to the revolver. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks.

(I hope this in the right spot, not sure of date of manufacture).

Yup it is a smaller diameter screw.
A bit harder to find.

Suggest you post a WTB.
As Paul stated they are out there.
Smaller dia measures 0.093 where the larger one measures 0.107.

Square butt. I have had a thread posted in the WTB months ago with no luck.
(no wonder, I just looked and the thread is closed, so I reposted)

Let me know if you need more pictures.

Thank you for your comments.

Now to find a screw!

Have you tried eBay or gunbroker?

Surprisingly, I've found Model 36 parts on both platforms.

Good luck on your hunt.

Go to Numrich (AKA Gun Parts & Firearm Accessories | Numrich Gun Parts). Good chance those guys will have what you need. They have lots of stuff.

Thanks for all the comments and suggestions. Posting here was the answer, a fellow member contacted me and is going to send me the correct screw. I really appreciate all the responses.

Hmm. Interesting. Why did S&W use different sized screws on their j-frames?

Im sure the forum member will send you the right screw, but on the off chance it isnt, send me a note, pretty sure I have a spare or two lying around. Be happy to give you one if you still need it.
