Here's a Dawson I just installed on my Glock 17 Gen4, in tandem with Grip Force Reactive Target (rear) Sight.
Regardless if using punch-hammer or dedicated sight pusher, before attempting to install your sight make sure it is close to fitting the dove tail ! Gunsmith commandment: Always modify the least expensive or most readily available part first. In this instance, use a stone or file to prep the sight for introduction into the dovetail. Below illustrates a S&W front sight, however the principles apply to installation of any fitted sight.

This is the combo I used for my Comp gun. Although a CORE, I do not have an optic on it.

Front - .180" Tall x .090" Wide

Not sure if the pictures really help but here goes. I definitely noticed more precision during dryfire. Hope it translates well during a stage run.
