I`m interested in getting an Optima and mounting it on a 22/45. Is it possible to mount it using the original sight dovetail? What do you guys think of the Optimas? Marcus

Talked to a guy who mounted some on his 1911 slides. He really liked them. One slide was wearing a 3 min. dot and the other was wearing the 7.5 min. dot. (I believe these are the sizes). He also installed taller front sights so that he could use the Optima as a rear sight, though I don't understand the reasoning behind that.
At around one ounce in weight they didn't affect the handling or operation of his 1911s at all.

I just ordered an Optima mount from EGW for my 22/45. I have tried EGW mounts on my two Kimbers and my Springfield HiCap. (I have since had EGW convert my HiCap to the Optima Cut, whcih can't be done on 22/45)

The mount is only $40 and available in blue or silver.
