Please Help -- need front sight for Browning Buckmark Hunter

I purchased a Browning Buckmark Hunter and added a Williams Fire sight to the rear.

Neither the factory front sight or the Williams sight that came with the rear is high enough.

I have phone Williams about it -- no help.
I have phone Marble (who makes the sight for Browning) -- no help.

I need a sight compatible with the Buckmark and from barrel to Fiber Optic Bead, I'm looking for .5625".

I contacted Dawson Precision, who make custom sights, but they have a 4-6 week backlog. So, are there any generic sights that will work, or anything for a different pistol?

Can I use a Williams shorty sight base?

The barrel is .75" diameter (factory) -- my caliper says .78".
It is mounted with a screw about .75" from the front of the sight.

Thanks.
