P88 C grip screws

I'm looking to replace a lost screw holding the grips in place, and want to order some from Brownells. But I have no tool for checking he correct dimensions. Can anyone tell med the correct dimensions? A recommendation on a tool for checking screw dimensions would also be appreciated.

Thanks.

I am pretty sure a member here, barkerlee, was recently looking to replace a grip screw on his P88 compact.

You may want to reach out to him and see what the results of his quest revealed.

An extremely useful tool --you'll need two of them, one SAE and the other Metric (or maybe three, if you like British guns with Whitworth threads)-- is a thread gauge. It looks rather like a set of feeler gauges, except the leaves are all the same thickness but have teeth with different spacing corresponding to screw pitch. By matching the screw to a gauge, the thread size can be correctly identified.

Thread gauges are not terribly expensive, and like 6" micrometer calipers, are practically indispensable in any decent workshop.

Try Brownell's, or MSC.
