Legion front sight

The effort to widen that 0.04" exposed channel to 1/16" (0.06") is just not worth it. You can file away the channel and just drill out the end holes to 1/16", but your FS and FO will be prone to damage easier if you snag a barrier. Have you tried just heating the FO end a bit more till you get the blob of a dot you want? I've seen plenty of botched big dots from overheated thin FO using a lighter at a match.

Dawson is you best bet.  You can get all kinds of different size and heights.

yes, but they all use the same size fiber, 0.04

trijicon is the only one that i find that uses a 0.06 fiber: https://www.trijicon.com/products/details/sg701-c-601050

the blade width on the trijicon is 0.11 vs the 0.09 on the dawson (which is pre-installed on X5)...and so it has a much larger fiber

the thicker blade will fill the original dawson rear sight a bit more, but i dont think this will be a problem....in fact the rear notch on the dawson and trijicon are the same width, so apparently trijicon thought this configuration is fine
