    WE Hi Power MkIII

    See that, you learn something new every day.

    WE Hi Power MkIII

    That would be great as I really like the cone hammer on the original version.

    WE Hi Power MkIII

    That video sells it for me. Would have been been nice to see a new design for the hop-up, but I can deal with that. Appears the magazines are the same, which I am ok with as well.

    First the Hi-Power and now this! This is pretty nice. Gonna have to make more room. Wonder of the will try to get them to work with "G" mags or a Hi-Cappa style. Got to hand it to WE. They do this and everyone else plays catch up.

    WE Hi Power MkIII

    Finally, and based on their latest products, they've learned that making it "right" brings in the bucks. I'm good for two of them. I've had two of the older version for at least 10 years and they still work fine. Hard trigger, weak hop-up, poor sights and they still get used. My mags have never leaked as well. Something to look forward to.

    Keep me posted on your experience with them. What frame colors did you get?

    TM compatible 1911 metal frame with rail?

    I couldnt pass on the "free shipping" and 3 day delivery. Supposed to arrive tomorrow. I also got 2 of the new TM M45A1 magazines.

    I'd be loving that myself.

    TM compatible 1911 metal frame with rail?

    I was just looking at a ASG STI "MEU" style pistol (OEM is KJW) for about $80.00 new. Frame has zero markings, which I'm also looking for. I've had good luck with the one I have now, but it's a "well worn veteran" of many years and want to keep it that way. Going to use the new frame with the parts and add a Guarder 4.3 OPS slide and barrel group as well as a magwell (not planning on using CO2 in this one so hopefully no fitting issues. I have a nice pair of KWC Colt Rail Gun grips that look like the M45A1 grips and maybe they will fit as the ASG STI grips are set up to take CO2 magazines and the KWC grips are molded for CO2 magazine use in their pistols. If not, guess I'll just see about dremeling the STI markings on the grip medallians to a flat surface. Last project for this year. I did try to find a R28 but the only place that I could find in the USA that carries them are out of them until January.
  10. Does anyone make a metal TM compatible 1911/MEU style frame with a rail? All I need is the frame as I have everything else. Thanks for the help.

    Current G series 'bestest modl'

    I actually find that KP13 grip loosely mimics the CZ P-10. I have large hands and even some people with medium to small hands feel they can handle the pistol just fine. It appears to not need changeable backstraps. The beavertail and relief cut on the trigger guard also allows you to get your hand up pretty high, which helps create a nice low bore axis. The fact that you can use TM and WE magazines is a nice touch as well. My only issue is getting a holster that fits. The frame has a molded-in thumb rest for your "off hand" on each side of the frame. It does a great job at what its supposed to do , but it protrudes just enough to make holstering the pistol difficult. It sticks out just a bit further than the slide release. I'm currently using a Blackhawk Omnivore with a TR-1 light as that holster locks up on the light and not the pistol itself. Basically the holster will take 150+ different pistols that have a rail that has a TR-1 on it. There is another version that works with the Surefire x-300 and another version that gives you a block to put on a empty rail if you dont have either of those lights. Clever design and so far retains the pistol very well.

    Current G series 'bestest modl'

    Big thumbs up for the KJW KP13. Have two and they run great. The grip is probably the best design out there and I've used updated Guarder slides and barrels with no problems. One of the slides carries a RMR. If you get it, you wont be disappointed. The only part not "G series compatable is the magazine release which is all metal and totally different design (its a better design as well). Original slide "looks" ok, but I've been using blank (zero trades) G17 slides from Guarder on mine. As for the BLU, I find it offers no advance (other than looks) over the Timberwolf. It's predominately the same pistol. Frankly, I wish they would bring back the Timberwolf. I've built some G19's and G17's from all Guarder parts and they are pretty good. They look good and function well, but my KP13's and Timberwolf's are better. Not a big fan of the new "legal" Glocks available from Umarex/Elite Force. While they have the "proper trades", they also have others that kind of spoil the image. Function appears to be "ok" but there have been no "rave reviews" from our band of shooters. There have also been reports of frames cracking near the trigger guard (though I've not seen any picture proof of this). Frankly, I would be more interested in seeing a CZ P-10 and CZ- P07. I'd also like to see a Colt Combat Commander and a Styer M9A1 (GBB). If you go with the KJW KP 13, I dont think you will disappointed.

    Colt M45A1..Which one to buy?

    How do they hold up? I shoot these things a lot.

    I love Shapeways. All sorts of airsoft parts. Every part I've purchased has been well made with quality materials.

    Marui news for the "TM Festival" next week

    I feel the same way. Every time I expound on my good experience with the VFC PPQ (have 4), I hear nearly nothing of a positive note. Have had them since they first came out and have no no issues (other than a loose ambi safety on one that we easily repaired with a new part) and they get shot a lot. My only issue with the FNX 45 is the size of it. I relate it to my prized TM MK23 nbb's which, while they perform great, they are really a pain to carry.
