Your 6946 should have a .204" tall front sight too. Those are the shortest front sights I'm aware of on the 3rd Gens.

Of course a taller rear sight will raise the POI also but not too many 3rd Gen factory options there.

I'm finding my new-to-me 3rd Gen's tend to shoot low, too.
Putting Meprolights on em made it worse, the tritium
front sight is taller than OEM.

Are rear dovetail cuts about the same for all 3rd Gens?
On Midway, there are two 3rd Gen Novak rear sights--
looks like a 9mm series and 45/10mm series.

The 45/10mm look taller...
