Security Industries of America question

I have an old friend of mine that asked me if I could find a screw for his pistol,well I told him I would see what I could do.
I did some searches and came up with info on the pistol but could not find any source for parts.
These pistols were roughly based on a Mod.60 Smith so I tried a cylinder release screw from mine but it will not work.
This is the .357 mag they were made in the mid 70's not to many around.
If anyone could help with a replacement screw or a source for one that would be great.

Man, that's like looking for a needle in a haystack the size of Kansas.
There were very few of these made and no parts house has anything for them.

The best I can suggest is getting a good gunsmith to make a screw for it.
That's not a major job to any gunsmith worth the name, as long as threads aren't stripped.

The threads are fine he just said he was shooting it one day and the screw was missing when he tried to reload it.
I figured it was worth a try,maybe I will just tell him to try and find a Gunsmith that can help him out.

Jack First and Numrich maybe, but screws are an easy to make item, even with a mini-lathe. Retapping is easy as well.

Find a decent gunsmith un your area.
