Default Can I switch from .029" pins to .019" pins on my Spot Hogg.?

I just picked up a Spot Hogg Real Deal last night and all the sights they had at the shop were .029" pins. So I picked one up and after shooting it a bit I think the pins are just to big. Even at 10 yards it was covering up a large protion of the target. And with the 10 and 20 pin so close together it seems smaller pins would be much more beneficial.

I was wondering if the .019 pins are interchangeable with the .029" pins so I could just swap it out or should I just have them order another sight and exchange it?

The biggest thing I'm worried about is mine has the wrapp kit already on it so would I have to change all that out as well?

Sorry should have researched a little harder.

Found this on the Spot Hogg website:

Pins
Price: Please contact us for pricing
Pins for the Hogg-It, Hunter, Real Deal, Right On, Seven Deadly Pins and Barebones are all interchangeable. Available pins are: .019 fiber optic, .029 fiber optic, .039 fiber optic, and .045 aluminum pin.

Fiber optic colors: Red, Green, and Yellow. Pins come with or without a turret. What is a turret? Click the picture at left!

Look here at the turrets, they are 2 different lenths depending on which pin in the sight you want.

The actual pin slides within the turret.
I've only had 1 "wrap kit" in my hands, so I'm no expert, but if I remember right, the pins are pre-loaded onto the ends of the fibers. Changing the pin itself is no problem, but I don't know how you'd change out the wrapped fiber?

Guess you already found out you can get smaller pins. Dop yourself a favor and can the tern yard pin. You don't need it. There's only about 1" difference in POI using a 20 yard pin to shoot 10 yards. And nobody shoots 10 yards anyhow.

If you have good eyes and you can swing it try the .010 pins my groups shrank considerably
