    TX front stock screws

    Just changed factory screws for stainless still but not sure if they look better, any opinions
    Sorry about the not very clear pics I couldn't get the size to post right.

    As long as you like them.....
    The one thing I have found is that stainless steel screws can be surprisingly soft

    Are you sure that is right as I thought it was stronger because of the chromium, more info please

    That is quite correct as stainless has a weaker tensile strength than mild steel so they will break easier.

    Factory ones better then

    But still a bit confused about stainless being weaker than mild still as when you google it, it says this.

    (Stainless Steel is typically stronger than Mild Steel due to the alloy (chromium) it contains. That's why it is used to create objects that should withstand impactful force or frequent usage. Mild steel tensile strength is relatively lower but can undergo strengthening by adding carbon.)

    Tensile strength is is ability to be stretched before snapping, something you could do with a nut and bolt being overtightened. You won't do that to a stock bolt so don't worry
    "Withstand impactful force" would be more to do with toughness, can it resist you wacking it so it could be stronger until it snaps whereas mild steel might stretch and not snap unless you're going at it like a gorilla.
    Looks wise It's your choice just keep the factory bolts safe. The odd bit of bling is ok with me.
    The more I think I know, the more I realise the less I know.

    on a TX, the front screws go into a soft alloy block, so pick whichever one you like the look of.. they are all stronger than the mounting block.
    Always looking for any cheap, interesting, knackered "project" guns. Thanks, JB.
