You will need to have the slide milled for a red dot if it is not a factory optic ready model. I like the Vortex Viper 6 moa myself.

I sent a CZ slide off to Primary Machine and they did a fantastic job. I'm sure there are site sponsors here that can do the same.

If youu are talking about a fiber optic front sight, go for a High Vis. Putone on my Kimber and have loved it ever since.

I have used 6moa vortex venom and viper red dots on pistols. I have had better luck with venoms. I own 3 venoms that work great. I had to send 2 vipers back for replacement. Also I shoot morning matches where we face eastward towards the sun. The viper screen would get a lot of red glare which would make finding the dot difficult. For whatever reason the venom doesn't do that. As for Primary Machine they cut a CZ pistol for me. It was for a venom . They did a quality job with a quick turn around.

I have a LW 1911 with fixed sights. EGW has a mount #49411 that fits right in the dovetail for my Leupold Deltapoint. It has held up and performed well.

Only one here, and it's a Vortex Venon 6 MOA factory installed on my Aegis Elite Custom.

Like it so much, thinking about adding another on a Commander (Pro) sized pistol. After 50+ years of using irons, I'm a convert.
