Re: Scope For My 1911
welcome robhac to TFF. you need to look into frame mounts, they mount to the bottom of your gun via the front(where it says IMBEL BRAZIL, a gunsmith will need to drill and tap it for you) and the slide release hole(on the ejection port side of your pistol), preferrably made of high strength steel, but those aircraft grade aluminum ones are good too, try to steer clear of plastics... as for scopes, if you want an actual scope, try a long eye relief 2X OR 4X magnification, however, i prefer the holosights like the swat team uses, they are lighter, and you can use them easier in low light situations... happy hunting, and once again, welcome to TFF
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
Fact of life:
After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says WTF!
