neep help finding screws for a metal gear servo

i stripped my only screw for a tower hobbies metal gear servo and cant seem to find replacements. i would like to come across different lengths if possible. im also going to assume the thread type for mg servos is mostly the same. any help is great. funny how one little screw can mean the difference between go and no go.

usually for mg servos, a machined thread screw (not a self tap in), that is 3mm wide will work. for example a 3x6mm or a 3x8mm button head screw will work.

okay so i measured the width and it is 2mm. now im not sure if there are different thread pitches for different brand servos or if there is a common thread pitched used.

most standard size servos from ko, jr, hitec, futaba use a 3mm screw. but if it is a mini or micro servo, than they sometimes use a smaller screw. i myself, have never used a tower hobbies servo, so they could be using a different screw for the servo.

If you can't find it here ... it probably does not exist.

Are you talking about the control horn/arm retaining screw, or one of the 4 case screws?
