wrong sight for that dovetail cut.
a correct sight would be just as wide or very very very very very slightly larger at the base than the dovetail cut.
sights are fitted by using sandpaper to remove metal off the bottom of the sight. not the edges. you may need to do the edges but that is a last resort. you only sand the underside until the sight slides in 1/4 of the way into the dovetail freely. then use a sight pusher to get it centered. if it stops or feels like it hit a wall it needs a bit more file work. a properly fitted sight will stay in place via friction. some have set screws. some use red locktite
