Red dot on a Gold Match

Ok guys, I'm the new guy here, an old Texan. This forum was recommended at a gun show today.
I want to install a red dot sight on a 45 gold match II. I can't find any references on "how to's" or parts required. My questions are:

1. Is the dovetail cut a Bomar, Novak, or Kimber proprietary cut?
2. What specific parts are required? I have been told MOS mounts will work but they don't look right. What mount is required to match the gold match.
3. Can a red dot handle the 45 recoil?
4. Is this conversion even practical?

Thanks for any help.
