6 o'clock hold

Are there taller front sights for the gun or should i file the base of the rear apature so that i can lower the rear sight in its base? I figure i would need 8 down clicks to make the POI=POA but as the rear sight will not go down any more i cant get those clicks .This led me to thinking i need a taller front sight or to be able to add down clicks to the rear sight.
If you are using the 6 o'clock hold, the POI should be higher than the point of aim by about 3-6 inches at 100 yards, depending on the size of your target. What type of target, and what type of hold you use makes a difference. Also, your elevation can be adjusted so that the 1 mark hits dead center, i.e. it shoots point of aim without the six o'clock hold.
Hope this helps.
