Default sight question on sig 1911

Hey guys Ive been Googling for hours to try to find out the actual type of rear night sight on my sig stx.
Can't find it! Let me clarify exactly what I mean here.....the small line directly under the notch. This is the only gun I have ever seen with this kind of rear night sight. I know the sights are classified at Patridge sights but was curious to know if there's an actual name for the line under the notch. I don't know why this is bugging me so much but I cannot find anything about them. Anyone else seen these sights before?

Dont know if this will help, but a number of my SW revolvers have rear sight blades with a white outline as well. I know when I have ordered replacements they are simply called "White Outline" sights. The outline on the SW blade however extends up both sides of the notch as well as the bottom.
