Hello I was taking apart a newly received marlin 42 for cleaning and maintenance  and when taking out the carrier screw from the receiver the screw had broken in 2.  The carrier screw stock item #406720 which works on my 1898's was to small of a diameter,  the 406720 screw mic's out at shank/shaft diameter of 0.155 to 0.160 , thread diamter of 0.180 and length of 0.555.  Putting the removed/original screw together I get a shank/shaft  diameter of 0.158 - 0.160 a thread diameter of 0.205 and a length of 00.610.  Do you have this screw or a screw of these dimensions that I could use to make a carrier screw out of?   Thanks, Brian
