SR9 front sight height??

Can someone use a set of calipers and measure the height of a stock front sight on a an SR9? I need the measurement from the top of the slide to the top of the sight. I'm looking to order a Dawson Precision front sight replacement, but they offer 3 different heights.

I do not have the factory front sight and the gun currently has Williams Fire Sights that are stupid tall. I'm planning t switch back to the factory rear with blacked out dots with a fiber front sight.

I think the 9E has shorter sights. I went back and double checked my measurement a bit more carefully and need to amend my initial measurement from 5.8 mm to 6.0mm on our new SR9. It is definitely 6.0mm. Sorry for the confusion.

Thanks for the responses so far.

Looks like .19 for the E and .23 converted from the 5.8-6mm. Hopefully somone else will respond to confirm these.

I don't know if there is a difference in the front sight for the E model, but I can imagine there might be since it has a fixed rear as compared to the adjustable on the SR9.
