Dovetail depth on my 2214 is .1565 the clearance on the sight is .110 ... .0465 difference. Depth of hole to the elevation screw is .022 ... not quite half way there.
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.

I am making araingements with a local Gunsmith to have the slide milled when he gets back from vacation in early March. I put the stock sight back on so I can still get some range time with the 2214. In the mean time I will be able to pick up the cold blue to touch up after the work is done.

Adjustable sights installed on my 2214... I had to have a little shaved off the rear deck so the sight would fit. Next will be a trip to the range. Then off to a local holster builder to make a Kydex IWB holster.

Looks good!

Did he mill the slide, or just the sight?

He had to take a hair over .0465 off the slide. Not quite enough meat to take it off the bottom of the sight.
