Retention Screw Size? 2 weeks 5 days ago #83917

Hello,

I am a new Saberforge owner. I got my new Prodigy blade in the Champion tier as a gift, and after much fun I tested out the blade plug. When I went to put the blade in again, I noticed the retention screw was missing. I have looked for a few hours and have now given up my search. I want to purchase a new one.

I am aware that the sizing of the retention screw is 5/64, yet I am unaware as to what the length of the screw is. I have searched a bit online and in various forums, but the posts are rather dated and I just wanted to make sure. Again, I have a Prodigy blade, champion tier. Any help folks?

I lost my retention screw a while back, and when I emailed Saberforge to ask the size, they said the screw was an 8-32, but the length varied depending on the saber. They also offered to send a replacement, which I gladly accepted, and they sent me like six or eight. There were two of each size they use, one black finish and one silver. You might try asking for a replacement if you aren't needing one today.

5/64" is the size wrench that you need for the socket head.

The actual screw size is #8-32 (#8 shaft, 32 threads per inch).

You can easily find them in varying lengths for a few cents at a hardware store too. 1/4" length is the most common I've seen SF use; don't have my empty Prodigy yet to confirm the length that hilt takes though.
