what size hex wrench for rear sight

None of my hex wrenches fit the set screw on the rear sight of my Shield. Based on what's too big and what's to small, it looks like it might be 1/16" -- true?

I'll have to pull mine out of the safe to be sure, it is SAE, no metric. Be sure to use a good quality set of USA made allen wrenchs, not Chinesen

thanks, John

I'm pretty sure it's a 1/16, especially since you assured me that it's and SAE. I just haven't found one yet.
