Default Rear sight leaf screw pitch.

Does anybody know what the size and pitch of:
1. The older (pre-1993) rear sight leaf screw?
2. The newer (post 1993) rear sight leaf screw?

These are so small, that my aging eyes are not compatible with my pitch gauge anmore. I'm grateful for any help.

Hello. Anybody home? I'm thinking that the early one is 3X56 ? The newer one is bigger. Maybe 6 X 48? C'mon brother, my brother. Help a brother out.
