    On my set of allen wrenches, the 0.005" is what works.

    Edit: Yeah, the smallest one in my set just like BE. I thought it said .005 when I checked though.

    I can tell you that the screw is a 4-40 X 1/8. A spring outa bic lighter will fit and a ball bearing out of an old quick disconnect works. The wrench is a.050. You can't tell I've lost every single piece of a safety at one time or another. Oh and the safety itself is 3/16 dia.machine at you own risk.
    I took the road least traveled...now where the hell am I ?
