    Sig P220 Carry, Hogue rubber grip and hex head screws. Sits in the safe, comfortably waiting for me to shoot my 45 ACP firearms. Routine inspection and cleaning and discovered 1 screw missing. Search and no luck. No worries, I’ll reinstall the slotted screws. No luck....one slotted screw was missing!?!?

    If any member has a Sip P220 screw (slotted or hex) sitting around I would gladly Venmo them a reasonable fee for the screw and shipping. I don’t want the spend >$11 for a new set if I only need 1.

    Thank you

    When you find it, I'll bet you also find a zillion AR front pivot detents nearby.

    Once you break down and pay the $11 for screws, you will find it. I recently did this with a rail tapped receiver.

    Did find them, and a set of springs, some dentures, my missing pony and a pot of gold.

    I broke down and got them from Midway.

    You will find them before the Midway order is delivered. That's just they way it works.

    So..........closure. The screws were never found (probably in CA where we moved from). Midway delivered the replacements in a few days. Replaced the torxs on the P220 and added ss torxs to the P229 CC. Looks sharp.

    Look in the bottom of your range bags, you may find other parts.
