Do standard 1010 rail buttons fit BlackSky Standard or High Power Rails?

My club has BlackSky Standard and High Power Rails. I guess these are pretty old because there's not much information about these online and I can't find any rail buttons made for these rails. Would standard 1010 rail buttons (or any other common rail buttons) work?

Our club has one Black Sky rail, and the rest are 1010 rails. I've found that the "flatter" Black Sky rail has less clearance for the rail buttons than the square 1010 rails do. I've had traditional one-piece and three-piece rail buttons with a roundhead screw bind in the Black Sky rail. But the lower profile chamfered buttons with a flathead screw work fine in both rails.
