While I was still able to get the pin thru the mainspring housing and into the mount properly, there has to be a better way. I did put this on a Kimbe...

The perfect solution to what I was seeking

by Gary Fisher, from United States, TX Written on February 16, 2015
I much prefer my red dot sight to the laser I was using on my 1911. I am right handed and my left eye is very dominant over my right. the iron sights on my 1911 are fine as far as they go, but i much prefer the red dot sight. I have seen some mounting configurations on the slide, but adding extra mass to the slide is less than desirable. I found the aimtech to be an ideal solution....

Aimtech Scope Mount

by rumaso, from United States, TN Written on January 19, 2015
This is the way to go for adding a scope to your 1911. If you want to leave it on permanently then install the pins and the grip screws. If you want to just shoot for the afternoon just use the grip screws. It locks up solid either way. For my purposes I would have preferred to have the mount sit as low as possible to facilitate minimum error from line of sight but others may prefer the ability to still use the iron sights....

Aimtech Red Dot Mount for Colt 1911 45

by Dowler Gary, from United States, FL Written on January 18, 2015
Fits well on my Kimber Target ll. Also, very pleased with the overall balance. I use it for shooting Bullseye League. The tubular red dot sight I use mounts at almost exactly the right height for my line of sight. The best part was the installation required no drilling on my Kimber....
Pros:
  • None
Cons:
  • None

1911 scope mount

by Geno, from United States, WA Written on August 25, 2014
I have the Aimtech mount installed on two Kimbers (9mm Stainless-Target & a 45ACP Gold-Match-II). It is a very well-made, precision item. You couldn't ask for better fit and finish. I would rate the installation process as medium-difficult for a novice. If you already know how to replace a sear-spring in a 1911, installation is a snap! The enclosed instructions are a good guide, a few steps that would make them complete, are missing. If you have a Ambi-Safety, it must be removed. No extra parts are needed. The only down-side of the installation (for me) is that I can't remove the slide when the mount is installed. Both of my Kimbers have the large, adjustable rear sights. The upper, right-hand corner of the sight strikes the mount and prevents slide removal. I think that lower, non-adjustable sights would not be a problem....

russ -Ashville

by Russ, Verified Owner from United States, NY Written on March 14, 2014
The additional cost of installation was worth it as it is now usable and working excellent at the range The millet red dot that I purchased is on the mount and showing good results.
Pros: The Aimtech scope Mount APM-7 mounted on My 45 is doing excellent job
Cons: It did require installation by gunsmith; had to trim & polish pins...

Well made as all Aimtech's are

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on April 22, 2013
While I was still able to get the pin thru the mainspring housing and into the mount properly, there has to be a better way. I did put this on a Kimber Custom II, not sure if all 1911's have the same issue.
Pros: Perfect fitment
Cons: Pin/screw going thru the main spring housing, can't get it thru with out marring the threads....
