    That would look cool on a Colt New Agent but not sure the dust cover is long enough on the defender size pistols.

    I like it--economical, compact, and effective enough. Like I noted above, when you look at the alternatives for enhanced sighting systems on your non-railed 1911, for me personally RDS is a total non-starter there. I'm not a huge fan of the idea of milling a 1911 slide for RDS anyway, but especially in the case where I want to run a WML on the same pistol. And while I'm a huge CT fan for laser sights--they're pretty much all I use currently--there's no way I'm gonna run one of those laser grip sights that they produce for 1911's. I've tested those, they are totally RH biased, interfere with your grip as a lefty, and besides I don't want to give up my current VZ grips anyway--they are too awesome to part with.

    As for aesthetics, you're right it probably would look more proportional and 'at home' on a smaller sized pistol, it might fit pretty well on my Commander.
