Where can I buy a taller than Std 1895 front sight blade

Have M21 receiver sight on my 1895

Need taller than standard FRONT sight blade.

Since new eyeglasses are thicker, end up looking through the edge and seeing a double post when I lower head to sight.

Need to raise front sight as the receiver sight is near lowest setting with standard blade.

That way I can raise rear receiver sight and won’t have to lower my head on the stock as much and won’t then have to look through the eyeglass lens.

It's better for shooting to see only one post.....LOL


Does anyone know where I can get a taller than standard front sight blade???

Brownells has a pretty good assortment of new sights of various heights, diameters and colors.
