I am feeling pretty strongly that I will be swapping out my front sight on 686+. I am considering this

Question ... from where do I measure the height of my current front sight which works fine with my fixed rear. I figure i just throw a caliper on the front for the width but I want to be sure to get the hieght right.

Dawson has instructions to calculate the front sight and there is You Tube Videos , you need to consider barrel length , ammunition used and POI . I decided just to keep OE sights on mine, someone with more smarts than I can help you out.
