V10 front sight

Hey all, I picked up a V10 Ultra Compact this evening, nice gun overall but the previous owner decided to put some green paint on the front sight.

Quick question, can the front sight be replaced? I assume it's staked in like my V16, but am curious if anyone knows of a decent replacement.

I'm not overly concerned, I know they get filthy and it happened to come with Crimson Trace grips as well but I'd still like to swap a different sight on the front.

Decent for what?
The green paint can be removed.
Do you want tritium, fiber optic, gold bead or something else?

You're kinda stuck with a stake on style front sight on those. Not enough room to dovetail it. (if memory serves me correctly)

Yes, there's no room for a dovetail. I'm thinking of a gold bead if possible.
