Default Garand front sight blade width

I have a front sight that is .695 wide and the blade is (.084).
I would love to find another with a blade that wide.
Any guess as to the manufacturer ?
Anybody have one ??

Ended up making one using JB Weld. Took about two hours with Emory boards to get the right contour and width. The extra .010 makes a huge difference in the amount of halo around the sight blade.
It also makes the sight blade slightly wider then the target dot. This prevents creeping into the dot.
