Does anyone know what red dot fits Girsan 1911

I've added an EAA Girsan 1911 "Ultimate" in 45 ACP to my 1911 collection. I bought it without the red dot optic but am thinking about putting a red dot on it as I've never had a pistol with a red dot. Since I might carry this pistol (if it proves to be reliable enough), I need a motion activated sight. Now, the red dot you can buy it with has pretty terrible online reviews. Girsan says these pistols can accept the Vortex Viper red dots, but these sights must be turned on and they have an automatic shut off feature. No bueno for concealed carry!!

Sig Sauer has told me none of their red dots will fit the Girsan line of 1911's. Does anyone know other red dot makes that will fit or that have the same dimensions as the Vortex Viper? I'm stumped.

Burris FastFire, Docter have the same mount, but I don't know if they have auto-on either.
