What are these round things?

Found these pinkish plastic looking O rings while cleaning my Solo. How important are they?

That's a new one on me, never seen "o" rings in any firearm I've owned.

I can't tell what size they are but I use #60 O-rings under the heads of my grip screws to keep them from backing out. It's possible Kimber may be doing this now, again I can't tell how big they are.

Judging by the barrel and size of the rings I think you might have a winner there Chuck
