After an extended wait with no complimentary screws, I called Umerex today for an update on them.  Bad news, they do not do that repair there and have no such replacement screws available.  My open job ticket was just filed with no call back to me. Oh well….go to plan B.   I had several 6-48 gun screws and a tap in my collection that were the right length.  I merely opened up the M3.5 threads with the slightly larger 6-48 tap.  The screws were too hard to peen over as is.  Two minutes in the propane torch flame to a orange hot condition softened them up just right for mashing over inside the tube.  I had to support the head as to not drive them through and destroy the threads.  The job was a success and I put the scope back on.
