  1. While my M17 is awaiting a new outer barrel, I wanted to find a new "a metal" Sig P226 E2 as I prefer the grip to the standard P226 (I've had a TM P226 for many years). There were just 2 "all metal" options and those were the KJW P226 E2 (although with the wrong trigger profile) and the WE P226 E2 (apparently there is a new version 2..I have no details of the changes or if it officially exists). The KJW appears to be discontinued and I could not even find a good "used" one available anywhere. So I found a brand new WE at a excellent price. The store did not have spare E2 magazines (and the TM E2 and P226 mags do not fit) but had a large number of the standard WE P226 magazines which they were willing to verify that they would work in the E2. They gassed up the E2 magazine and 2 spare P226 mags to make sure there were no leaks and they functioned fully. They had no problems. Since they were willing to go to the trouble to verify the mags operated, I bought the pistol. The WE 226 E2 arrived last night and I just put 6 magazines worth the gas and .25 bb's this morning. Everything functioned fine and I was surprised as the temperature here today is 25f. Range and accuracy were adequate (sights were right on), but I want to upgrade the inner barrel and hop-up (I'm thinking the Maple Leaf unit??). The outer barrel is a little "meh" and I want to replace that as well. I'd like to use a Guarder P226 barrel for the TM P226. I know the barrel hood is a little wide where it meets the slide breach face and I am wondering, if I file the width down a bit to make it fit, should it function ok? Overall, early satisfaction is high. The fit and finish (a sand blasted mat black overall) appears quite good. There were no rattles when the pistol was shaken, with and without the magazine in the pistol. While there are zero trades, I have no problem with the looks. My TLR2 and Inforce lights fit perfectly. If anyone has any experience with this pistol, I'd like to hear about it..as well as any other suggestions regarding up-grades. Are there CO2 magazines for these pistols? Thank you

    Proforce Sig M17

    I bought one of these a few months back but have not shot it a great deal. However, I do find the pistol to be accurate with adequate power and range. The pistol appears to be well made, fit and finish on mine is quite good. Overall, I'm happy with the purchase, but I do have just a few issues. My first is with the outer barrel. Here in the USA, we have to deal with a red or orange muzzle cap on all our airsoft replicas when purchased. The Proforce M17 is no different there. While the cap is threaded into the barrel and glued in, it can be removed with some effort. However, when this is done, you end up with a very, very thin inner threaded muzzle. This muzzle does not accept any known thread adapter. It also looks like absolute junk and really detracts from the overall good looks of the replica. I ended up taking a WE threaded barrel adapter and built up the end of the adapter that fits into the barrel and "permanently" super glued it into the M17 barrel. So far, so good. But I'm not sure how long term this fix will be and frankly, I would like to get a replacement barrel from somewhere that does not have to deal with this red muzzle cap issue. The few pictures I've seen of these pistols in Asia and Europe appear to have a normal muzzle ends with faux rifling. This is exactly what I'm looking for. If anyone knows of a source, I'd appreciate a "heads up". It does not have to be threaded barrel, standard length would be fine. I'm really surprised by the total lack of any after market support for this pistol as well as it appears to be selling quite well over here. My next issue is with the magazine. While I have the CO2 version and have had no operational issues with the magazine (mine perform very well so far), I'd like to see a standard length, flush fit magazine with a better quality (better material) base plate. I have suspicions that the present base plate could be easily broken in a fall. Finally, the RMR adapter. This has been promised for quite awhile. Lets get it done and it best be able to co-witness fixed sights! Ok, rant is over. I would appreciate any of your thoughts and/or comments regarding "long term use" that anyone has had with the Proforce M17 as well. Thanks

    Actually I am liking that color for the front sight. Think I'll give it a try myself.

    WE G17 Gen5 F-type

    They could never get the Bren Ten to work well its entire run on Miami Vice.. I think the most they were able to get it to shoot, without jamming, was 3 shots. I have most of the episodes and I have not "seen" more than the 3 shots at any one time. The .45 acp conversion kit was considered to be junk. Thats why they went to the S&W 645 and then 4506. Those were excellent. I had them both. Back to the point, I'm actually starting to like this "new" version of the G17 more than the G19X.

    Cybergun Pietro Beretta 92FS (07041) Box Art

    A suggestion, if you have more examples of those items you find of interest, it's time to "pull the trigger" and get them out there. If you own any of these replicas, how about a comparison of that replica to what was advertised on the box art. How did it or did not, hold up to the promise of the packaging. I believe this is a learning process. I myself have to get off my butt and learn how to put pictures of my collection on line here as well (I'm really really old and dont have these skills yet-lol).

    Does anyone sell Lipo Ready AEP's ?

    Thanks Wildething. Have not seen these before either. I'm surprised these pistols are not more popular. Especially with the indoor crowd. They seem almost perfect for CQB. Fast battery changes, magazines are cheap, decent rate of fire and not to painful when your hit from a close shot. An AEP and a pump tri-shot shotgun would seem to be a pretty decent load-out.

    Does anyone sell Lipo Ready AEP's ?

    Thanks for all the info. Evike has the Cyma M9 w/mofset and I'm ordering it. They also have the Hi-Capa and the "over sized" 1911A1 with the mofset as well. Hope they come out with the USP w/mofset as my TM version is my overall favorite. The CM 127 has a nice look to it as well. Would probably have to order over-seas though.

    Does anyone sell Lipo Ready AEP's ?

    Never heard of those. Do you have retailer info?
  13. Weathers getting cold here and I've broken out my TM and CYMA AEP's for backyard plinking. I'm wondering if anyone sells a "lipo ready" AEP? I know it is it wouldnt come direct "from the factory" but would up-graded by a retail seller or custom house. I've heard that some of these pistols are now being sold with a mofset already installed from the factory now. Thanks for the help.

    Action Army Ruger MK IV GBB pistol

    I'm liking the version with the RMR, Suppressor and Light. Impractical, but it does looks mean. Probably not as quiet as my suppressed H8R revolver or Mk23, but I'm going to have one (maybe 2) anyway.
