Default 617 front sight height?

Am considering swapping out my front sight on my 4” M617-6 and don’t know what the height of the stock front sight is.

Anyone know this? I asked the techs at Dawson Precision and they didn’t know 4” but stated the 6” is 0.195 tall.

Thanks in advance. Love the gun and shot it well yesterday, but know a precise FO front sight would be helpful for my eyes

My 4" OEM 617-6 front sight measures .168 at the tallest point, That measurement was made with the sight removed.

I replaced the rear sight with a LPA and had to replace the front blade with the correct height a .255 for the point of aim/impact to work.
