One of the advantage of this ADE plate over others is this optic plate has a CURVED/ CONCAVED design that will sit flush(wrap the top curved pistol slide) on the top of the pistol. Many other plates are Flat design.The optic plate for 1911 with Standard Novak rear sight requires removal the rear sight and disassemble the pistol. We recommend hiring a professional gunsmith. Unprofessional installation such as improper torque(12in/lb) will result in screw loose, not holding zero, damage to the firearm/optic and personal injury.

Users also have the option to manually turn the red dot power off to disable the Motion Activated System. The overall length is longer than traditional red dot, therefore it only fits on the optic plate that sits ABOVE the slide(typically the plates replacing the rear sight). It does not sit into pistol slide with a milled optic cut because those cuts are typically made for red dots with standard length.
