Thanks. This will be awesome.For the short future...no. I do believe this may be a possibility mid year however.

Can a slide be sent in for the modification?
I wonder how the top slide profile would match up on the plate with the non optic cut? That could be modded also though.This or will the plates be available for sale so local smiths to do the install.
It doesn't take a gunsmith to mill a slide for the Trijicon co-witness sights (or any other dot sight mount). Any competent hobby pistolsmith/machinist (me) can do it easily.I have two 9mm 1911s with reflex sights on them now. I bought a Kimber KHX OR because it comes milled for plates, from Kimber, and was a little less than a Nighthawk, Wilson or Brown with an RMR. I also just had a Dan Wesson milled to take the Kimber optic plates and it turned out fantastic! STI has several factory guns that come optic ready and there are at least half a dozen gunsmiths who are milling 1911 slides. I can't see open sights clearly anymore and red dots let me shoot up to my potential, as low as it is. I'm going to wind up with an optic on a .45 soon. It won't be long until everyone will be offering this option from the factory in some way, shape or form.
