On another note, welcome back.

I use almost exclusively Serrated Head Star Drive screws.


Well it is a good lesson but anyway Gunns, its nice to have you reply to this thread, and especially considering your username that brings me up to my next point, the screws in guns are all too often single slot screws. What drove me to start this thread is this screw in my Heritage Rough Rider revolver that's a single slot screw and all my small screwdrivers are phillips screw drivers. Now you don't use glue with the screws in guns and stuff isn't going to get into the slots, especially if you keep the gun well cleaned. So it makes sense that the screws in guns would always be Phillips screws.

Screws in guns are slots because a screwdriver was not always handy but that coin in your pocket was . But if you had a nail in your pocket you could turn that there phillips head screw .

A coin can be used to turn a phillips head screw as well as a single slot screw.
