RMR on a Kimber 1911?

I'm posting this question for a friend who would like to mount an RMR to his Kimber 1911, but does NOT want to have his slide milled. He wants it to be a drop-in solution. Is this possible? Rumor has it that Kimber has made many different dovetails depending on the model, so it may be a more complicated question to answer.

ETA: the model in question is an UltraCarry II

Thanks in advance!

Beats the Hell out of me! But it is a good question. Somebody on here should know. Good Luck. I didn't want you to feel ignored.

Just curious why. Won't that kind of spoil the carry factor?
I can not answer the question about the dove tailing.

Burris makes a mount that fits the Kimber dovetail for their FastFire 2 & 3 sights.

I'm of an age where life experience has taught me that sometimes it's better to just not ask questions like that. ;-)

As a friend the question SHOULD be asked.

As a friend, I know that he knows what he's doing, so I won't belabor the point of asking a question that he's already answered for himself.

But I get your point.
