High/Low profile sights with USP tac-45 using flash hider

A friend of mine who had just bought the USP Tactical .45 would like to replace his adjustable sights for lower profile combat night sights. Now, I've heard that you must use "higher" sights when using a sound suppressor, but what about when you are using a Vortex Flash Suppressor? Does the shorter length of the flash hider allow you to replace and use lower profile sights? Or does the flash suppressor also require you to use the original high profile sights?

Thanks in advance for any reply!

I currently have on order a set of Meprolights and Tru Glo's I am going to see which one fits better. They are the regular low profiles sights; and I ordered the same flash hider. The stock sights are high to clear the suppressor. You should be ok with the low profiles like I ordered but I will confirm once I install.
