I have just refinished my PT1911 and had all the parts set out for reassembly. The cat jumped up on my lap and the parts went flying. All part were accounted for, save for the front sight (Novak) set screw. Long shot, but does any one know the thread size and pitch of the little bugger?

Call Taurus, they will send you a freebie. Will take about 10 days.

Think it 1.5 metric fine...at least thats what my 24/7 is....pretty sure they will be the same.

If you have a magnet, maybe search the room with it?

If you have one of those long magnets to hold knives or the one for tools in the garage, use that to run over the floor.

Forget about it, just have Taurus send you a new front sight, you know they will. By the way for what resone did you have to take it off in the first place?

Was this inside the home or garage??

If so......get a flashlight, a strong one is better, lay it on the floor with beam turned on- then slowly rotate it like a lighthouse. Watch in the beam path....if the screw is there it will stand out in 3D when the light hits it. You will also see many other things.

I was shopping at Meijers one day and asked one of the employees if this cat food was; made from cats or was for cats? She walked away muttering something about PETA....:D
