Default Win 101 sight bead

I need to replace a missing sight bead on a 1970's vintage Win 101 field grade . Does any one have any info on the proper thread size for the bead? Thanks

I'm thinking it's likely 3x56. If not 3x56 it could be 5x40.

Do a look see at Brownells or e-gunparts. They should have the part needed as well as their stock number.
