plug screws are 8-40 or 6-48 with the bulk of them being 6-48. if you are into guns at all then just buy some of each from brownells or midway. or any gun shop will have some. if you are not into guns then you are in the wrong forum.

Thanks that helps!

For those that suggested I call Benelli - I did so. Not only were they unable to provide me any sort of screw or plug, but they couldn't even look up the thread information. I was surprised and disappointed. Along those lines I won a Stoeger (owned by Benelli ) at a banquet last year and wanted to find a spare stock so I could shorten one for my son. When I called them it was exactly the same. They couldn't sell me a stock or provide me the name of a vendor who could. I'm a big time shotgun sports guy who purchases with some frequency. I'll have to say Benelli is moving down my list as it seems that post purchase support is dismal.

Maybe we can help you find that stock for your Stoeger. What model is it? Wood or synthetic?

Personally I would like to find a laminate or synthetic stock for my 20 gauge sxs double trigger coach gun. Their wood to metal fit is atrocious and cracked stocks are the norm.

The filler screws will be the same thread as the scope base screws. Put a little blue Locktite on the screws and flush them to the action. Dont forget to align the slots. Any guns smith should have them in their screw assortment.

Yeah, that would be nice. Even when Stoeger was doing their ugly "defense" coach gun they just painted the wood black.

You can prevent most cracking on your stock by bedding the head of the stock to the action. I also like to put in some metal rods to enhance strength. When done correctly it is invisilble.

The Nova/Super Novas have a steel frame that in encase in a polymer so you need the polymer screws

Do you use polymer screws on the scope base?

Scope base screws are steel. The filler screws can also be steel.
