P226 Platinum Elite back sight removal

I want to remove the rear sight from my Platinum Elite in order to try a slide mounted red dot.

There appear to be two very small hex head grub screws at the back of the sight passing through the dovetail.

The smallest hex key that I have to hand measures 1.20mm and fits the elevation adjuster on the side of the sight. It is way bigger than the holes in the screws.

I have a sight pusher on the way, but don't want to try pushing out the sight if I need to loosen screws first.

What size hex key do I need?

Any help or advice much appreciated.

For anyone searching this, it's a 1mm hex.

Thank you, Toolbreaker
