Is there a difference in height between a M4 and A2 sight tower?

I recall someone stating that Colt's(specifically) M4 sight tower is taller than the A2 tower.

Any thoughts?

There has been some scuttle butt that Colt M4A1 (not Colt M4) towers are indeed shorter. I wish I had the thread. Nobody else's are shorter. One of the fixes (remedies) is to use a Colt 9mm front sight post. It's taller than a 223 post.

Yes the later M4 'sight towers' are lower than the standard A2 'sight towers'.
