Default M1A/M14 flash hider question

Bought an aftermarket flash hider at Camp Perry couple years ago. Now installed on M1A build. Problem is front sight will not tighten down on to hider. Dovetail is too big? Sight dovetail larger than flash hider dovetail Using M1 garand sight laying around. Do sights come in various dovetail lengths?
Thanks
John

M14 front sight is different than an M1 front sight. You need the proper sight.
