Need help finding #6-48 screws and other strange sizes

Can anyone recommend a source for strange size screws?
This started as a rifle scope mounting project, but has escalated into
a search for the source of this type of specialty screw. We have a need for #6-48 screws (found only in large kits by Forster Products, in Brownells' site), and #8-36 Fillister (found in McMaster-Carr, in SHCS, but not Fillister).
Where are these types of screws available in a larger selection of types and quantities???
Thanks for your help,
Spencer

you could try some of the suppliers for the steam train types. The Model Engineer magazine might have some leads.

One of the best ways to approach this problem is to simply purchase a quality die for the thread type you want. Then manfufacture your own fasteners to fit. As long as it's slotted head, you can easily make them on nearly any lathe.

Try this company; not sure if they have what you want, but they are a fastener specialist.

Call Brownells and ask them about either buying from them in larger quantities or ask them who their suppliers are. Those folks are very helpful and I would not be surprised at all if they referred you to a supplier for a larger quantity purchase.
I consider my Brownells catalog to be the first place to look for an oddball screw, tap, or die. Especially for small quantities or one job use tooling.
