i always wanted, but what stopped me is the way how these red dots look on rounded slide top of 1911s. not nearly as sleek and streamlined as these do on glocks. honestly in most instances i saw these mounted they looked unnatural and out of place pretty much every time. there is also issue with iron sights being completely obstructed by the base of the red dot. because how high it sits. so i never ended up doing it.
i do have fastfire on my g17 and it's awesome.

I have to cover the target with my commander novak stock sights….I guess I could file the front sight or get a rear sight I could raise….Center of bullseye is 2 to 3 inches low at 12 yards..Just looking for different sight options….Thanks

The Jpoint reflex sight is a little lower profile and has a vestigal rear sight built into the frame. Not sure how accurate it would be on their bowmar mount, but they also sell shim sets so you could adjust the rear iron sight. Would probably not be really suitable for target shooting at 25 yards, but in an emergency...
