Default Steyr question

Can anyone tell me what thread is used (4 cap head bolts) to hold the reg in place on the factory made Steyr reg checker please? I'm assuming its the same size that's used to hold the reg into the chassis? It looks like m3.5 but I'm not sure

Thanks guys, ive found that they are m3.5 but have to be cap heads so the screw heads sit in the counter bore on the reg or the cylinder wont tighten up fully Tried some electrical 3.5 screws Jon but as they are countersink heads they sit above the reg and the cylinder wont tighten down fully
