I thought about putting a FF3 on it. I might BUY the FF3 and use it for my Ruger SBH and later, TRY it out some day with the mount before milling my 1911. That way, I know for SURE if I want it or not.
That's a work of art, my friend.
I don't think I'd ever machine that pistol's slide to mount any kind of red dot sight. That'd be sacrilegious. It's friggin' awesome.
I wanted a hunter, but I started with a $500 gun and didn't care about aesthetics, much. Your 1911 is way too pretty to machine, IMO.
