You can find just about any type is grip screw you can imagine on eBay usually quite reasonable. Just search for 1911 grip screw if you are running regular grips (not the slim).

You can change out the grips and use whatever screws you might prefer most of which can be purchased at Brownells. The Taurus grips are different and require different screws.

The head on taurus screws are wider. Regular screws will work on taurus grips, but taurus screws on regular grips may not work.

Interesting about the larger diameter screw heads. A larger diameter screw head has more friction on the grip at a given torque and is less likely to come loose under firing. Then I realized the new Colt CQB 1911 has even larger grip screw heads, doubtless for the same reason. So Taurus was not just 'screwing around' when they put them on the PT1911.
I replaced them with standard-type hex screws when I put new grips on. You can't use the big -head screws on regular grips without machining the bearing surface on the grips.
