    Have looked online for information on screws
    for Oakley M Frame, cannot find. Are there any
    modestly priced screws that will work? It does
    not have to look pretty, just functional. Saw some
    discussion here on Oakley forum about T6 screws on Ebay used for
    other models of Oakley glasses, do not know
    if they would work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I take it you're looking for the Mag (magnesium, metal) M Frame? That's the one with two opposed screws in the center of the brow and is a 5-piece frame.

    They do not match X-Metal screws. I have a picture from some months ago I'll try and dig up.

    The frames are 3-piece, with two screws, one each at L&R temple.
    'M Frame' printed on inner left arm near temple.

    Regular m frames use pins, not screws...

    Ok, I can see why it may be called
    a 5 piece frame if you count the earsocks.
    What size pins should be used? 1/16" x 3/8"
    ones from McMaster-Carr? Saw those mentioned
    in another post. I butchered the frame, embarrassed
    to post a pic, it's shot, used bicycle spokes and a dremel, etc.
    Super glue and part of a spoke holds one side together, hey, they
    are functional and practical.
    I know they are M Frame, used Heater lens when I first
    bought them, and later replaced the Heater w/ a Radar lens.
    But for future reference I need to know, as I have two more
    M Frame's. Sorry for my noobishness and thanks for your time.

    *EDIT- It was a M Frame 'Hybrid' lens, not a radar.

    Yikes.

    The Mag frame is 5-piece. The stems are two and the brow is made up of 3 screwed together to hold the lens.

    I don't know how to help you, sounds like you've got things pretty well ghetto rigged

    I have the M Frame in which the lens snaps in.
    No screws in brow, etc.

    then it should have no metal screws or pins at all.... if it did, its a fake.

    EDIT: Disregard, I guess Im not as good as I thought I once was...lol

    No, there are blind pins in the hinges of a normal M Frame. I've never had mine fall out of any frames, but I suppose it's possible.

    Better question is how you got a Radar lens in there
