I have two railed 1911's, both have Clark rails. Is there a full length rail that would position a red dot lower than the Clark rail?

Depends on your optic and what rings you may be using. I have a Kodiak machine 9000 mount on my wadgun, it is about as low as you could comfortably get with a 30mm tube dot. Theoretically you could probably get a bit lower with a micro or a 1" tube, but I have not went down that path.

I believe there are a couple of smiths (KC, and John Shue) that mill a dovetail in the rear of the slide that you can mount a micro on. I think there couldn’t be anything lower.
My buddy has one like that. It’s pretty slick.

Jon Eulette, from this forum, made a rail that was low and light.  You may want to send him a message, and ask if he has more of them in stock.   

I bought one of them, and liked it so much I bought another, which I've since used on a different gun.

I don't think Jon's rail is much lower, just lighter due to cuts on the bottom. I could be wrong though, would be worth asking him.
