    How durable does it have to be? You could try putting some JB Weld on each side, then filing it down to whatever width you want and painting it, but I don't know how durable that would be for continual carry and/or extensive shooting.

    You need a sight .495" tall?
    Wow. I have a couple of taller than usual sights with silver soldered extensions, but go ahead and give the JB a trial.
