Default B44 and B44m?

Are there two variants of the B44? One in standard size, one in metric?

I was on rcscrewz.com and saw that there were two kits for the b44, a standard size and metric kit. Are the B44 overseas sold with metric sized screws?

The kits sold here in Australia are imperial. No metric screws in ours.

Maybe the screw kit is to convert to metric.

Maybe the "M" stands for the mid conversion that is sold for the B44?

mid44 is just a chassis conversion for the B44. At its heart, it's a B44 with different chassis and the two top decks/braces...

I agrew ith aeRayls, it's probably for those that want to go metric at the beginning (don't want to shove those metric screws once the nylon holes are threaded...

But it got me wondering if AE kitted metric screws for a B44 kit overseas? Probably not, but never know. Anybody from Euro here with a B44 kit bought over there (not through a US store and had it shipped there), but from an actual distribution channel from there (such as a local hobby shop that deals with AE directly)?

Hmm, now im wondering, i would rather have 3mm screws instead of 4-40, assuming that is what they are using.

I would rather have standard screws than metric screws.
