Fiber optic sight set for 3" model

I know that Kimber advertises that all sight (sets) for the K6S will fit any model K6S. But, will they work if mixed? For example, I like the two white dot rear on the 3" gun, but I really want a fiber optic front sight. Are all of the rear sights the same height, with the same notch depth? What about the front sights? All the same height?
I am planning on ordering the basic rubber grips and the FO sight set. But I would prefer to use the white dot rear, with the FO front.
Maybe I'll shoot Kimber an email, and ask them.

Thanks.

Report back on what you find. I am also curious about mixing and matching their sights.

I contacted Kimber customer service last Thursday. I was told with a (suspiciously) quick reply, that yes, the sights are all the same height. Not trying to be a “glass half empty” kind of guy here, but I may call and ask to speak to a gunsmith/tech this coming week. I just want to be sure is all.

I hope that the fronts are shorter than the black ramp. Let us know about the sight picture when you get it set up.

Yesterday I filed down my front sight until POA matched POI. It was about .01” too tall. Shoots great now.

So it sounds like different height front sights are not available? That's a disappointment. Hopefully that change over time.
