It depends on th capsule. An AKG is 1mm. Neumann uses 1.7mm as we have discussed here. Some chinese capsules use 1.4mm

That also depends on the capsule or mount.  Akg CK12 would be M1x3mm, Neumann K67 would be M1.7x6mm.
Many of the chinese or boutique builders have opted for their own sizes. Could you be more specific for what you are looking for and why?

I bought a chinese capsule and appears to be smaller screw  holes compare to  other Chinese capsules and also seems like I need a bigger saddle because the saddle holes are farther apart. Below us the link of what I bought, thanks...

This looks like a "pseudo CK12" capsule. (=Edge terminated K67 capsule.)
The holes are indeed a bit further apart than a standard K47 or K67 capsule, but there are 'universal' capsule mounts, that will fit all capsule sizes.

These two saddles are designed for BM800 body fixings - but should have the appropriate holes spacings:

Should work OK with  either 5 or 6mm M1.6  screws... ( you can only insert around 3mm max of the screw into the capsule itself)
