I'm looking at having to mill 3/64 off the slide or .0469 ... To gain an adjustable sight I'm not bothered by this but I'd rather have it milled over using a file and stone.
This is interesting.
I measured 6 slides, only 1 came back with your measurement, the rest matched what I posted earlier. Then I found a 2213 slide with the sight still installed, so I knew it was either a 2213 or 2206 based on the sight. It measured the same as yours, when I compare to the others the dovetail is cut much deeper visibly just as you have found. So it looks like I have a 2213 and 2214 slide among the 422/622 slides. I'll take some pics tomorrow.
I'll add another interesting factoid, I pulled my 2206 fixed sight pistol out of the safe. Even though it uses the same 2 dot sight as the 2213/2214, the dovetail is not deeper like the smaller guns, the front sight sits higher it appears to compensate.
