Yes, I get mine from Midway USA
I keep at least 4 slotted & 4 hex head on hand- I never use "thin" grips
Course I have at least one extra of every spring & pin too-
Then theres the extra hammer, trigger, few pairs of grips

I don't want to insult your intelligence, but you're aware of the consequences of using the wrong screws and stripping the holes right? Totally not fun, and your gun will be down for much longer than if you just order the application specific screws from somebody.
Agree, so here are the specs on standard grip screws:

Grip screw type/designation:
0.150 - 50 UNS - 2A

Shaft diameter:
.150

Shaft length:
.255

Thread pitch:
50 threads per inch.

Head Diameter:
.275

Nomenclature:

"50 UNS" = 50 threads per inch, Unified National Special thread profile.

"2A" = The Class Fit, amount of tolerance or tolerance and allowance specified.

Small "O" rings under the head of the screw will hold it tight enough.
