I am wondering what size screw is it that holds the handguard on ?
I know the pitch is .5mm, but the threading must be odd . I pulled out my metric tap and die set and there is nothing remotely close to it .
Anyone know what the thread pattern on this is ?

Measured it to be 4.77mm x 60 TPI. Probably extra fine designation and only Molot could tell us what the thread pitch is. I left my forestock attached as designed
and added another swivel. Didn't want to compromise the strength of this joint.
