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

    Thanks. This will be awesome.

    I went to shooting a G19 just to get an easier platform to fit an RMR on. Once mounting to 1911s gets sorted out a bit more I believe they will become standard affair on a lot more 1911s.

    I wonder how the top slide profile would match up on the plate with the non optic cut? That could be modded also though.

    I think @Joe C method for install will be great and will be offered to smiths to install in the future.

    That looks familiar. :)

    How does the RMR setup work with a can? I've been thinking of threading a 40 S&W barrel for the 2011.

    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.

    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 the old mount like aegiswa, installed by NH. But this new design looks super

    Just saw shot show video on the new offering with replaceable plates and it looks good - I’d sure like to see some better pics of the plate, locking screw and pin they mentioned.

    I get more excited every time is watch this. It’s so much cleaner then the Trijicon “saddle” and giant rear sight.

    I like it. Have you seen all the video on the Aimpoint Acro.
    May be a good combo with this IOS system???

    That is a very slick system. Looks like it may prove to be very tough indeed. The Kimber plates are like the Trijicon plate/saddle with a big honking permanently fixed rear sight, except on the Leupold plate that has no rear sight. I like it that the Nighthawk system has a rear sight that is at least windage adjustable and I assume one can mount a fully adjustable Novak cut rear sight. Wonder if they’ll offer this as a gunsmithing option on other brands of slides?
