Missing screws from the Maverick DUC 32 forks.

I returned from a bike ride recently and noticed a screw was missing from one the fork leg guards. This was obvious because the leg guard was at the two o’clock position, not pointing straight up to 12 o’clock. The service manual can be downloaded here. Item 22 on page three of the manual says "Screw Phillips Panhead 3 x 6". That’s in metric, apparently.
It is an M3 screw you need, no longer than 6mm. Commonly used in computer cases to hold DVD drives in 5.25" bays. Chances are the last DVD drive you bought had a bag of four of these screws, and you used two of them.
This photo compares the original screw, and the replacement:
