Default Fiber Optic Sight on M64-6

I have been thinking about building an IDPA SSR revolver in 38. I have located a 64-6 HB that looks to be pretty clean for a starting point.
I consider a fiber optic front sight as the first requirement on an SSR revolver for my 59 year old eyes.

Now can a sight slot be cut, and a pined on fiber optic sight installed for this application? Pined on sight heights are .250, and .300

OR

Would a dovetail 1911 fiber optic sight be a better way to go, as they are windage adjustable? Looks like the one on my Colt 1911 is .172. I have not checked Dawson Sights for available heights yet.

Anyone done this modification? Results?

Bob

I did not get much help from my e-mail to SDM. They are busy, and not accepting any new work at the moment. Their pined on S&W front sight may not be the best option anyway.

Looks like a Dovetail front sight is probably going to be the way to go on this application. That will give me Windage Adjustment. I have been looking at Dawson Front Sights a little.

Still looking for options.
