Welcome to the forum ZoSo80, you can, but you will have to have the slide milled.

How about stopping by our "New Member Introduction" sub forum and introducing yourself to the membership. Tell us something about yourself, your interests, hobbies and where you're located.

ZoSo80.....you've just created a "need" for your second Kimber 1911!

You really don't want to start milling the slide on a sweet new Stainless Raptor, so now you have optic-ready options from Kimber to have the best of both worlds. They come (OR) Optics Ready, and (OI) Optics Installed.

Two years ago I sprung for their Aegis Elite Custom (5") with the factory installed Vortex Venom (6 MOA dot), and it's a center punching machine that rips the crap out of the center of those corrugated brown terrorists, and blows those black steel zombies down quicker than any other handgun I own and shoot. From recent experience in hunting camp two months ago, out of five centerfire handguns there, all with skilled owners, my Aegis Elite Custom was the only handgun that could consistently drill a 6'x6' rock at a measured 231 yards away. The optic gets complete credit of course, but it illustrates just how effective a handgun so equipped can be, even at extreme range (for a handgun).

It's pictured here alongside my Kimber Super Carry Ultra +.



Kimber also has the same package in 4" (Pro models) and their KHX line is also optics ready or installed. Check them out before removing steel from that Raptor.....please.

My new Ultra Raptor II in stainless is on the way! .45 of course. Pretty damn excited, have started to wonder though...can you mount an optic on this model? It would be nice to put a holographic on there.
Welcome! From Colorado Springs!
