And then I ran across a 1/4-26 the other day. Not an ancient screw...it was a forend screw for a British BSA International Mk II Martini rifle, which started production in about 1955. None of my "special" series tap charts even mentioned that size... I was fitting a new barrel to this rifle, so I just made a new screw to match the dimensions of the original, except for it being 28 tpi. Easier for me, and cheaper for my customer, than trying to come up with the "proper" tap!
