I found a computer cooling fan company that uses M5x0.5

Haven't tried contacting them yet but there is hope.

Look about 2/3 of the way down the linked page for pictures.

If the factory screw sat in the recess of the sgm handguard, then it would be too long and hit the barrel. Pull the washer from your factory handguard then use it with the factory screw on the sgm handguard.

Yes, they're fine metric, nothing fancy.
I always find Home Depot is way better when it comes to finding hardware like that.
Or a local hardware store or auto supply.
Also try a bicycle shop.
A normal hex head shouldn't be too hard to find and will fit easily into the recess.
Can always cut it down if you get one that's too long.

They are quite fancy, local hardware stores do not carry fine thread metric bolts under 6mm. Even if you go to fastenal and ask them for a 5mm fine thread they will look at you like you have 2 heads. You would think with the internet finding it in a more metric friendly country and having it shipped over would be easy but it is not.

I can admit when it's time for me to backtrack, and this is one of them.

I'll check some of my bicycle part supply sources and see if I can find anything.
The first time I searched Olander it came up with something. Is this close?

I've really been debating between doing a new tapping of that hole with a 10/32 or something else and getting a bolt for it that I can make flush with the rail but I have no confidence in tapping that hole so then I've started thinking of ways to secure that handguard on with black wire or something but I know it'll look ugly when I'm done and potentially cause the handguard to be loose. SO then, we need cncwarrior or someone smart to come up with a band that can screw down or lock that handguard onto the barrel. It'll make it more solid a fit and like the ultimak, it'll probably aid in accuracy by having consistent harmonics and less wiggle room.

So who's going to come up with a metal band idea? :)

I had to buy a 1 meter threaded rod in M5 x 0.5mm
Ordered it from McMaster-Carr along with some compatible nuts.

I fastened my forend on and tightened down the but and cut off the rest of it with a Dremel.

Wasn't cheap but effective and I have more left over if I ever lose the screw
