    So I just received a pair of X-Squared and I noticed that the left hex screw in the nose bridge appears rusty. Fortunately, the threads on the screw still appear to be functional. Has this issue of rusting happened to anyone?

    More importantly, anyone have an idea on where I could get replacement Hex Screws? I checked Linegear and they don't have it :(

    I got a couple from a member in Germany but I use them mostly for repairs.

    Jdd32 has them I know. He had some custom made. They aren't cheap but good luck finding them anywhere else, haha. I've used naval jelly to de-rust juliet temple screws and that worked fine for me. I always coat them in gun grease prior to putting them back in the frame to prevent further rust issues.
