Most hardware stores do have a selection of metric screws in stock, but be careful, because most of what they have is not suitable for outdoor use. You don't want to mess up your RD by having something rust in place. Look for stainless or plated brass screws, or be sure to coat the regular ones with oil, grease or something like LPS-3, and inspect them from time to time for signs of rust.
