What mounting options due I have to mount a red dot on a 1911. I have a dan Wesson pointman pistol and don't want to alter the gun in anyway. Don't want to drill holes in the gun etc. Thanks

I might have to buy a second less expensive 45 but will probably need a trigger job done on it. I hate bad triggers. I really like the sig x5 legion but they only make it in 9mm.

Anywhere I can buy a Springfield 1911 that allready has a trigger job done etc? The only problem with Springfield you almost have to rebuild the whole gun to get it to shoot well.

I bought a Springfield RO and dropped in a Cylinder & Slide parts kit, then had a gunsmith adjust the sear spring and refit the safety, and called it good.

I put the C&S 3.5lb kit in mine, did a little filing to get the safety to fit and adjusted the sear spring myself. Shoots way better than it did stock now. Sent the slide off to Jon Eulette to have his rail mounted on my 9mm 1911 and plan to do the exact same with my RO 45. With his shorter rail you can leave your Iron sights in place and just pop the rail on or off any time you want.

I started with a slide mount but the recoil broke my first red dot loose, so I went to a NPC grip mount with an UltraDot red dot and still shoot it.  It took me from Marksman to Expert and quite a few of Master level scores scattered about, so that mount will work without drilling holes.  It sits a little higher than a frame or slide mount, but you can also download your 45 rounds since you aren't cycling the weight of the mount and dot.  I just found another and mounted it to my SARO 9mm also, so yes, a  few of us like grip mounts, but most likely the minority.  You could add a mount in place of your rear sight if you want to use a red dot like a Vemom Vortex.

You have to find them used.  They don’t make them anymore. Aimtech make a version.  But it’s generally better to either frame mount or slide mount.

Buy a SARO from the cheapest source online (about $700) and have it shipped direct to Dave Salyer (obviously contact him first and confirm arrangement - salyer@comporium.net). He turns stuff around really fast, does good work and modest cost.


Have him do a trigger job. Drill and tap for a rail (I now prefer to have the rails shortened so that the target sights can remain in place).


Order an Ultradot or whatever is your preferred optic. Total cost probably less than $1200 depending on the optic.

Who's blowing that smoke up your butt Earl?

Sure, if your shooting high Expert, Master scores.

Out of the box Range officer or Loaded will meet your needs.

You can ask Dave Salyer to provide two sear springs. One set for NRA 45 and one for CMP Service pistol. Then you just remove the UD n rail, swap sear springs and it is ready for EIC.
He did that for my SIG 1911, works great.

Stock RO. Did a little trigger work myself. Drilled and tapped it, installed Clark rail, changed slide stop and changed to a Briley bushing. Total cost w/o Aimpoint under 800.00. 25yd sandbag.

I don't know Len!
I think you need to play around with loads and bullets rather than just shooting small groups with a load that works...
