Slide cut for vortex venom.

I have a Kimber Custom Aegis II 9mm Model 3200163. I have already purchased a kimber lw arctic with the vortex venom attached. I want to take my old custom aegis and get it cut for a vortex venom. Without worrying about warranty can this slide be cut for a vortex venom. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks

Sure it can. There are several businesses that do it. Primary machine. Houses etc etc.

If you plan on iron sight backup and co witness you could have Kimber do it or have someone do it in the Kimber optic plate pattern so that if you ever decide to change the optic you just replace the
Optic plate adapter.

Not Houses...meant Housel at L and M Precision in Prescott Arizona. There are several now.

This is a slide that had a Bomar that a friend wanted to put a Deltapoint on with no iron sights at all that I cut.

This isn’t complete in this photo but a step after the front radius on the rotary table. I left a “recoil lug” on the back for the optic.
