I have tried this question before. Hate to inform you of this, but there are so many proprietery types of cuts that no one can give you an answer. Best advice that I was given was to pick out a sight that I want to have installed and send it to a smith. Good luck with your quest.

odds are high the slide will have to be machined. You need to find a fized sighte that is larger than this millet site and still have enough meat on the slide to install a sight.

Or get a bald slide and have what you want installed

A picture of your slide and sight would be helpful. Millett adjustable rears can be low mounted by machining, or they can be put in the existing dovetail. It would be unusual for the actual dovetail to be enlarged but not low mounted into the slide. If it's just in the factory dovetail and the dovetail is oversized, then machining it for a larger fixed sight would be no problem. I can probably tell you what your options are from a picture of your slide.
