Could someone with an X5 Legion measure the front sight height for me?

Would greatly appreciate it!

I am installing a Legion rear adjustable sight on one of my M17 slides and would like to order the matching front.

Before someone says it. I talked to two different people at Dawson and they could not tell me. They were telling to measure it. I get that but with an adjustable rear it really doesn’t matter, so I just want to start with the same factory front height or close to it without guessing.

Thanks
Chuck

Yeah I know, it is next on the list. But I still want an M17 with the same sight set up. I had an original X5 for 3 years sold it to get a Legion but then projects took different turns and well,...LOL

The non-legion X-5 should be the same, I'd think.
Wait one and I'll get you some numbers.
Wait. where do you measure this from?
freehand, I'm getting from .25 to .33 bottom of dovetail to top of metal fiber holder with a nice concentration around .28-.29.
From the top of the slide, I'm in the .23-.25 range.

Should be above the dovetail. .25 seems to be correct.
Soon as I receive them I’ll get them installed and let you guys know. Also I will post some pics.
Going on this.....
