Default Mecaplex Rail Screws?

Have to put in a replacement rail in a club ship, and I'm fairly sure one or more screws were lost when the old one broke. Anyone know the specs on those screws. From memory I'm guessing about an M3 x 0.5x 1 but would be great to know for sure. I'm not near the glider to check the old ones.

M3-0.50 by about 8mm is correct---just did the same job.
