    Has anybody tried one of these scope mounts for 1911s(or any other pistol)? It looks almost too good to be true.

    I'd love to play around with a red dot on one of my 1911s, but don't want to permanently damage it with holes in the frame.

    Looks liket he Leupold POS I tried -- replaces the right side grip panel and often interferes with ejection. I had to grind the heck off the back end to get mostly reliable ejection. Very uncomfortable as a grip too, I had to put a Houge "Hand-all" over it and trim it so the grip safety was not deactivated.

    I'd give two thumbs down to this for sure.

    If your intrest is in mounting a "Red Dot" sight, IMHO forget the mounts and look at the J-Point. I put one on my RIA and its fantastic: http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?p=1734761#post1734761

    Mine works great. It replaces the left grip, so it has to be used with a standard thumb safety. IIRC... the brand is NPC.

    I bought a couple from Brownells, but that was about 3 years ago. I don't see them currently listed.

    Clark Custom, AimTech, and B-Square still offer right side grip replacement mounts.

    Good Luck...

    Duplicate deleted not sure how it happened!

    Edit: One that replaces the right side grip panel (like shown in the photo of the S&W) might work better, but definitely do not buy the one you showed the photo of. If you insist I'll sell you mine cheap!
