Picture is distorted. IIRC, most grip screw on Kimbers use a 3/32 allen key

Welcome to KT and that would be a hex head grip screw...You can buy them by themselves at many lgs or buy the bushings to go along with them...Never know when you will need them...

Also grab a 10 pack of #60 o rings to help keep the grip screws from coming loose..

Maybe the True Value jamoke showed you the o-rings for a #60 Smith and Wesson.

Normal guns need the normal #60 o-ring.

That's $3.27 for a bag of 100.

If you haven't bought the grips check out the VZ site they have a large selection. They also offer a variety of screws, bushings and those O rings.
