Missing Screws?

Hello everyone. This is my Micro 9 that I got for a wedding gift from my brother last month. Anyway, after shooting it this morning I happened to notice that there appears to me some screws missing from the grip. I looked in the box and the case that came with the gun but no screws. The screws on the other side are in and tightened like they should be. It amazes me that the grip has stayed in place and everything has functioned normally if there are missing screws.

They keep tension on the grip screw to keep it from backing out. Basically the same principle as a lock washer.

As Tejun stated in his thread awhile back the #60 o ring will be too big for the Micro 9...
