Are these any good?

2 of the factory screws are starting to strip on my Keltec so I was wondering about ordering these, Are they worth it?

Also are these screws the best for the Sub 2000 or are there better then these?

Sorry for the noob questions :D

I just completed an Mcarbo trigger spring, trigger, and replacement screw upgrade on my S2K Gen 2. Easy to do, but I could not remove one of the factory screws at the bottom of the handle. I tried double wrenches and the whole bit. So all but one screw was replaced with the new replacement screws. It didn't hold up the job at all. I also did not remove the barrel or receiver to do the replacements, as directed in Mcarbo's video. No issues.

To answer directly; the screws in my S2K, purchased in June of 2016, were already showing rust on the edges and in the socket holes. The Mcarbo screws are a much better quality screw IMHO. They look better also, but that is just me; don't we all look at our children differently than others do!

I never had issues with my stock screws but I did upgrade my screws with MCARBO when I did the trigger and spring kit. I say it looks nicer, it's finished but time will tell. Again I didn't really had issues with my stock screws. Just did it when I was doing everything else.

I did the screw replacement a couple months ago. After looking at MCARBO and TandemKross, I decided to go with the AH (Ace Hardware) option. Looks like the same screws but much more cost effective.

I can't find that receipt, but it seemed like there were two sizes. Ace Hardware has a board you can use to determine what size the screws are. Also bought flat black washers the same size as the hex screw head and an Allen wrench on the principle that the one you need will be the one that's missing.

Thanks for the info, next time I go to lowes/AH I will take a screw from the handle and from the hand guard. See if I can find something stronger then factory screws. What screws would be then strongest for a Rifle?
