Can anyone recommend a low-profile, folding front sight for use on a SIG556 Classic?

I put a Millett DMS scope on my SIG556 Classic with a quick-removal mount. I like my scopes as low as possible, so I removed the front sight. Now I'm looking for a folding front sight that will work with the folding factory rear sight. If it would take a tritium insert, like an AR sight--that would be optimal.

I've looked at M4/AR sights, but most of them say they require qn AR/M4 rear sight to work as the SIG factory folding rear isn't the correct height.

Thanks for the help.

There are no flip down front sights that match up correctly with the rear sight on a classic. Sampson and Midwest Industries make a folding front sight that mounts on the gas block and works with a standard AR height rear sight. If you get the Sampson or MI front, it will accept a tritium AR post.
