Default What size are 1911 safety plunger tube screws?

My safety and slide stop plunger tube thing is loose. I can see how it is screwed on, but it seems I'm going to have to buy an allen wrench and grind it down so that I can get it in the frame to tighten the screws. Does anyone know what size allen wrench I need to get it right the first time?

Default 1911 plunger

+1 on the staked. The tool I use also functions as a staking tool for the grip screw bushings.
