Thanks again sir!

My 336 in .30-30 was actually my second ever centerfire. Great rifle, and I like it a lot. But if I knew then what I know now, it too would have been in .35 Remington. :)

Metric?? Now that's special.

Seems odd though, doesn't it? I wonder, is there any chance that screw might be T5 Torx? I could see 1.5mm metric working on it.

Nope....must indeed be 1.5mm. ...
