I am assuming the reason most are hesitant to throw out a width is because the custom shop can put on any FO sight you want and there is no guarantee that they will always use the same FO front sight.
A quick phone call will determine the thickness and you can go to Brownells to buy various colors in that diameter.
It would be great to post what you find out from SACS in case someone else has the same question.
