    I seemed to have misplaced the hex wrench for loosening up the screw for my rear sight and was wondering if anybody knew what size it is as I'll have to order another one.

    For a Novak low-profile combat sight rear with the tritium inserts.

    Remove the slide and go to the nearest gunshop or hardware store. They will have the size you need.

    3/32 is the norm but honestly I haven't run across 2 springfields with the same. I believe some are metric depending on the bin they pulled the screws from
