What type of screw in handles of Pro Crimson Carry II?

Title says it all. Can anybody enlighten me on what type of screw [hex (American or Metric) or torx?] is used in the handles of the Pro Crimson Carry II in order to change the batteries, and what size wrench or driver is needed to take it out?

Thanks and much appreciated.

Thanks Chuck.

And JMS-STL (we might be next door neighbors), how does adding a washer prevent the screws from backing out? Would not adding material into the joint cause the screw to not go in as far as usual, thus making the connection weaker?

Place the #60 rubber o-ring under the head of the grip screws before putting them in the grip then don't overly tighten the screw. The rubber o-ring will prevent the screw from backing out and it lessens the danger of stripping out grip bushing. It also makes it easier to remove the grips then if you were to use loctite on the screws.
