SR1911 grip screws

Does anyone know the proper size of the allen wrench for the SR1911 grip screws? I have a nice set of metric wrenches but the 2.0 mm is too small and the 2.5 mm is too large. My SAE wrenches are just a mixed pile of assorted sizes with no markings and none of them fit. Any help would be appreciated.

Are you sure it's a hex and not a torx?

Just in case you didn't know, that's not metric. Just kidding! Made in the USA.

Now you tell me! No wonder the hardware guy looked at me a little sideways when I asked for a 3/32" metric allen wrench. . .
