View Full Version : L1A1 Handguard screw interchangeable?

I've got a set of Imbel non-bipod cut handguards for my Stg58, but they came without a screw. Does anyone know if the metric handguard screws are interchangeable with the inch screws?

My Belgian HG screw fits my Australian and NZ L1A1 screw escutcheon just fine. Yours will too.

I suspect the IMBEL is the same pattern as the Belgian, and other Metric-pattern rifles, BTW.

Size 10-32 screw from the hardware store will work.
