Default Question about XS Sights dovetail size

A while ago I bought some XS Sights that I was going to have installed on a Hi Power. I ordered the ones listed for the Hi Power from the XS website, but when they came they were labeled as "1911 sights". I didn't think it'd matter since the gunsmith I was sending it to would have to cut dovetails for the sights anyway and he could just cut them to fit.

Fast forward to today, and I want to replace the XS sights with some TRUGLO sights. I'm not sure what ones to get. Does anybody know if the dovetail dimensions for the XS 1911 sights are the same as the ones for the TRUGLO 1911 sights? Or at least similar enough they could be fitted with a little file work?

I tried contacting XS sights but they haven't gotten back to me, and the smith I sent the gun to didn't remember what dimensions he cut the dovetail to
