Fiber Optic Sight for Dan Wesson? - AZ

I recently purchased a Dan Wesson Valor Commander and the front sight isn't working well for these old eyes. I would like to replace the front sight with something more visible to me like a fiber optic sight.
Can someone tell me who makes a good fiber optic front sight that will fit this Valor?
Or, does anyone know if sights made for other brands such as Kimber, SA, etc can be made to work on my Valor?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Dawson Precision.
Their design provides both a bright dot, and durability.
Harrison's sight is a ringer for Dawson's.

I'd think that either Hi Viz or Williams (Fire Sight) should make fiber optic front sight that is compatible with your Dan Wesson. As I haven't checked it out, I'm merely using logic and guessing.
Good luck on you project!
