I'm looking to scope an inexpensive 1911. My GSG 1911-.22.

I can't use the mounts that replace the grip panels.

I don't have a rail.

Drilling and tapping the slide would cost more than the gun is worth.

I've seen this under frame mount online, but I have no clue how it mounts. Any ideas ??

It may be drilled and tapped from the bottom. The problem I see with this mount is that it's mounted towards of the front of the gun, with the weight of the scope towards the back. So it's subject to more upward recoil force. I would expect a seesaw type of effect during recoil. Maybe even causing more front flip up of the gun. Your gun being a .22 shouldn't have much front flip at all, but i think a regular .45 would have it.

I believe that mounts to a lower rail (where a light or laser would go)and floats above the slide.

Why cant you use the mounts that replace the grip panel? like this one?http://www.brownells.com/.aspx/pid=63/Product/1911_AUTO_GRIP_SCOPE_MOUNT

Is it because of the ambi safety? you could maybe modify the grip mount to accommodate.

Get a pistol scope with dovetail mount and replace the original rear sight with it. Problem solved. I plan to do the same thing as soon as I have the money for the scope I want.

Not sure I'm following you on that?

Any "slide ride" dot or scope (one that reciprocates with the slide) takes a hell of a beating. There are very few on the market that will take the punishment for very long and even those get iffy. The ultra light Dr. Optic style ones seem to be the only ones that stand a chance.

TWebb.. since you don't have lots of money invested in the gun, and it's not an heirloom piece, you're best bet might be getting it D&T'd for a real bridge mount from one of the many makers. The only problem there is the mount and D&T'ing 6-8 holes might cost you as much as the gun. Though you might be able to pick up an older used mount on one of the IPSC forums.

I thought the same thing myself before I was told by some guys at a local bullseye club that this type of mount is OK. I'd like to hear from other people if they ever used this type of mount and what they think of it.
