    I have a Springfield 1911 double stack with a standard frame (ie, no rail.) and I would really like to put a light on it for HD purposes. Holster compatibility is not an issue, I don't carry this piece. It stays beside the bed.

    what are my options OT?

    Look at the Dawson Precision rail. You'd be looking at drilling and tapping the dustcover to mount it, but it'll let you throw a SF on there and is lo-pro enough that if carrying in a holster does become a requirement, you can do it in a normal 1911 rig.

    What's wrong with that? It's one suggested method - the theory is, turning on a flashlight is like turning on a lighted bullseye to any home intruder. Instead of utilizing a weapon light, use a flash light in your weak hand, and hold it up and away from your body, giving any intruder a false target.
     
  6. hate to hi-jack the thread but i too would like a rail as well as some nicer sights. i know you would have to put it under the knife to put different sights on there but has anyone done it? what does it cost?

    I want to keep my other hand free for whatever. even if its just to stroke myself off at the thought of how badass I must look running around the house in my boxers with a gun in the middle of the night.
