pt1911 rear sight dovetail compatibility?

does anybody know any rear sights that have the same size dovetail as the pt1911?
my rear sight needs replaced and im having trouble finding dovetail measurements for the sights sold everywhere. ive already bought and returned a set sold as pt1911 sights, but the dovetail was 2x bigger.

How old is the pistol? Are the sights marked 'Heinie'?

Taurus makes every part of every pistol. In this case the sights are made by Taurus under license from Novaks. Probably Novaks can take care of you on this. When I wanted to put night sights on mine, that's what I did. They still needed fitting, of course, but they were the right parts.

This I see my exact problem,today. I took a day off work to fit the new sight, among other things, but when I removed the rear sight the new one was a completely different dovetail. My Taurus 1911 has a Novak sight and I bought a new adjustable sight from Kensight. I researched it for quiet a while and ordered the sight marked "Fits Novak, Lo Mount, Dovetail for 1911's".

Where did I go wrong?
