Default Different 1911 sight dovetail

Can someone tell me the different 1911 sight cuts or point in somewhere that can? Like what company uses what cut and what the dimensions of the different dovetails are. Thank you

This is as close as I've seen. It's by no means the final word.
Further info might require digging through the various 1911 forums or hunting own and picking the brain of an experienced 1911 smith.
