Lightweight Frame Mount for 1911

Hello,

My Les Baer wadcutter is at Baers for work and I'm having them take off their big aluminum rail attached to the frame.

I'm looking for a lightweight frame mount option to mount my Burris Fastfire 3.

The stock Baer mount, that big aluminum rail, was overkill, and I had to cut notches into it to have the Picatinny mount for the Burris to work. It took a while to cut the notches and I couldn't quite get them 100% level after trying long and hard. The sight adjustment made it work but I wasn't quite satisfied.

Most Bullseye shooters use tubes and they say it's easier to pick up the dot quickly, but it seems a big difference in weight 4-5 ounces vs 0.6 oz.

Thanks for your ideas or suggestions.

Can't really help with a frame mount, but Burris makes mounts specifically to mount the Fastfire to a pistol slide. 1911 mounts are one of them.

Have you considered just mounting it on the slide?

I mounted my Burris Fast fire to my slide via their mount. Works GREAT.

Thanks Greg.

I do have several Burris bases for a slide mount. I'm being stupid and should have a couple holes drilled and tapped right onto the slide (the wadcutter has no rear sight) and be done with it. I have 2 other 1911's with a Burris on the slide.

chiltech, better yet, have the rear of the slide milled down to accept the burris so you can also co witness the front site.
