    My Grandfather is buying a Kimber Gold Match 2 (9mm). He wants to have a rail mount installed with optics. The reasoning for this is the red dot is alot easier for him to see than the target sights. Any ideas of good rails, and or optics? Also are there any shops that deal with custom 1911 work that we could have this done at?
    Thank you

    For how much I paid for it I've been quite happy with the OKO red dot I have on my AR. On their race guns STI offers them as a cheaper alternative to the C-more.

    Thanks for the info everyone. Yea it is pretty cool that he is into this. He is the one that got me into shooting. He was a big time safari hunter, but now as he gets older he cant shoot those big bore rifles anymore.
    But anyways, how does this sight work? Wouldnt the recoil throw it off? He was originally looking at the STI MatchMaster, but we get a discount through Kimber so we decided to go Kimber. I would assume the frame mounted sights must be more sturdy? LOL Im confused now.....
