GLOCK rear dovetail angle

Doing some custom work on a Smith & Wesson. Customer wants me to mount a Glock rear sight (I know I know..)

Trying to identify the dovetail cutter angle. Best I can eyeball, looks to possibly be a 74deg angle. Can anyone confirm?

Thanks
WW

They're not a normal tapered dovetail.

It's an X that's smaller in the middle.

Yes, 74 degree.

They mill a lead in both sides of the dovetail to get sights started.
It's not that it's abnormal, just not there in all dovetails.
