Screws for a picatinny rail
 
Does anyone know if they make shorter mount screws for the picatinny rail? I bought a rail for Mossberg 930 and the screw bottoms out before it tightens completely in the front.

Try Home Depot/Lowes/Menards, take the mount screw with you they should be able to help you.

Didn't think about that. Great idea - thanks.

You probably did this, but just in case. Make sure all the screws that came with the base are the same length. They may have included one that was a tad shorter to be used specifically in the front. If not, a belt sander or dremmel is an easy way to shorten a screw. Also, most base screws are going to be 6-48 or 8-40, difficult find anywhere but a sporting goods store.

The lgs or local gunsmith should have them in stock.
