60 degrees is the angle on any regular triangular file.

Just safe at least 1 side (ie. grind off the teeth with a Dremel) so you don't cut into the underside of the sight-blade (AMHIK) when you're filing the male dovetail of the sight.

Use a Sharpie or something to mark where you're filing to make sure it's even; go slow and fit often.
