10mm with Red Dot

I'm interested in a 10mm 1911 that I can mount a weapon light and a red dot on. Does Kimber make anything that meets these specifications? I've been looking around on their website and I'm not seeing anything. Any way to achieve this?

Thanks!

Kimber Super Jagare

Kimber has the Super Jagare 10mm. MSRP $2,688, might find cheaper if you shop around. No rail so not sure about the weapon light.

Just a side note that I would like traditional tritium backup sights in addition to the red dot.

I have not seen one from any manufacture yet. Does not mean on does not exist. The one Springfield posted above has a rail. You might check that one out and possibly drill and tap your slide for a mount for the Red dot maybe on the longslide model?

Kimber has the Custom TLE/RL that comes in 10mm and has the rail for a light. Looking online at the red dot setup there are many available to mount on the slide. If you have a competent gunsmith it shouldn't be an issue at all.

I know Springfield has a custom shop, maybe you should call them and see if this is something they can do. If itís possible I would prefer the manufacturer to do the work so you can retain your warranty.

Marshallís recommendation would also work if you want a bracket and not a slide mount.
