Anybody have a front sight retaining screw?

Maybe I'm not looking hard enough, but I can't find one anywhere.

You are looking for a grub screw ?
Mounts in the front of the sight base to tension the sight ?

My Century beater rifle grub screw went missing.
I found an allen screw with the correct pitch in a hardware store.
Cheap and works fine even though appearance ain't right.

You're right, them buggers are getting rare. I should think one could be whittled out of a #8X36 Cap screw, but there's some here listed at $10 for original slotted type.
