Need help with front sight brass/gold bead

I purchased a 2016 pro carry II 9mm stainless steel lightweight. I want to replace the front sight with a brass/gold bead and unsure of the size. I get .180, .185 and .190 for height size. I am also unsure if Novak cut will fit Kimber cut. Wilson and Nighthawk both carry gold bead sights just unsure if they will fit. I want to keep the rear black sights. I have a local smith that said buy a Novak brass bead front sight and he will install it.

Welcome to KT from St Lou...

When I was thinking of switching mine out on my PCII my gunsmith said to get the .185 since it would match my rear sight..

As Steve suggested, call Kimber to see what size the sights are on yours...
