    Who makes the smallest fiber optic front sight?

    This new Novak Competition sight seems too large, especially with all the metal framing material around it.

    We're talking Glock, right?

    Well, the fiber optic tubes/rods, and sights, come in a variety of sizes and colors...

    And Dawson Precision (depending on what you mean by "small") makes a variety of front sight widths and heights...

    Talking Dawson Precision, for width, it looks like .100 is the narrowest, and for height, .160 is the shortest. I assume these are the overall sight specs, and that the FO rods are smaller.
