Lightweight 5 custom 9mm with a vortex venom

I just ordered one of these from Smoky Mountain Guns and Ammo. It seems like a great deal. Does anyone else have one of these? Any thoughts?

One thing I noticed the stock kimber photo and the pictures on gunsamerica look different. It seems on the gunsamerica pictures the venom is mounted deeper into the slide than on the stock kimber photos. That would be a good thing if it is true.

Got my kimber today. It's really nice. The venom sits deep in the slide like on the picture I posted. It has a good trigger too. The gun is a series one with no firing pin block. I tried the slide on a kimber series II 9mm frame that has the firing pin block lifter. It looks like it works on that frame too. I'm really happy so far with this purchase.

That looks so strange without iron sights, but I guess they figured out how to solve taking the sights off to lock the RDS
