    1911 Picture Thread

    Can anyone show me a picture of a TM 1911 with a Guarder flat steel mainspring housing on it? I'd like to see specifically how well it fits into the frame. Actually, if anyone also knows, I'm looking for the best flat MSH out there for a TM 1911. It needs to fit like a RS MSH; none of this Western Arms nonsense where the housing sticks out of the frame a bit. I'm looking for one that sits flush with the frame.
  2. Hey I sent ya a PM but I think your box is full...I'd like to make an offer to you.

    So not even the pre-orders have shipped, huh? Apart from the hex screw differences, do you know what other improvements have been made??

    Does anyone know how long that holdup is supposed to take? I'd really like to order an R28 from them, they're supposed to be better versions of the previous Army Kimbers. Come to think of it, besides the hex screws in the grips, what ARE the differences?

    Does anyone know what's going on with their Army Kimber Warrior pre-orders? The pre-orders should have been over on the 20th, and I emailed them asking if they're sitll available. ACMgear said that they've got regular retail ones coming in that would cost a few bucks more, but I have yet to see any kind of change on their site. Have the pre-orders even shipped yet? When can I get my hands on one?

    Can anyone tell me what the difference is in shipping times between their free shipping and regular, 7-10 day airmail? It's less than a dollar difference.

    Oddly enough, those grips actually come with that gun. My roommate bought one, and it comes with the faux Pachmayrs that are identical to the Marui MEU ones and a pair of those wooden grips.
  8. Watch out for this guy, he took one of my guns and never sent me his as part of a trade.

    1911 Picture Thread

    Here's something a little different. It's a WE 3.9 1911 frame with a WE MEU slide with its guts, and some gubbins from it too. It's got a TM hop up unit along with a KM rubber. I know about the front end, I'm planning on replacing it anyway. Couple of notes about this... 1. Everything inside and including the TM 4.3 slide swaps over. However, the gun shoots about 1 inch low, meaning that the inner barrel sits at a downward angle inside the outer barrel, which in turn means that the entire hop up assembly is getting pushed up inside the gun. This leads me to believe everything inside a TM Hi-Capa slide sits slightly lower than the WE counterpart. The TM slide is also a REALLY tight fit. Cycles fine, but needs some lube to run smoothly. 2. WE 1911 slide works perfectly fine, no accuracy issues. 3. 4.3 length inner barrels don't work in the WE 1911 5 inch outer barrels. A shorter inner barrel points WAY off, so the shot goes high right. 4. Every so often, the slide occasionally binds. Racking it solves the problem. Happens only when racking manually, not during firing. Not sure what's going on here. 5. The dust cover (the portion of the frame in front of the trigger guard) is actually Government length, not Officer length. You can use either the 5 inch slide, 4.3 inch slide, or the 3.9 inch without any problems. Also forgot to add...interestingly enough, this gun actually exists. Well, to be more accurate, a custom gunsmithing company called Cylinder and Slide can actually cut the frame down on a full size 1911 to Officer's length, whilst leaving a full 5 inch slide on the gun. Here's an example (gun is NOT mine, belongs to a forum member called BriGuy1 over on thehighroad forums):

    Awesome news. So do all new M4's now sold via distributors such as Airsoft Buddy now include the aforementioned upgrades such as the steel nozzle, new hop and barrel, etc.?
  11. Superb seller. Bought a p226, arrived promptly and exactly as described.

    I wanted to be sure before ordering, but the WE M4's on Redwolf and WGC now come with the steel bolt catches, correct? I also remember seeing a link somewhere in this thread (can't find it) that redirected you to a website which lists RS parts that will or will not fit the WE M4, such as rail systems, stocks, etc. I'd like to start taking a look at what kind of front ends I can throw on it. To my understanding, any RS front end should fit, right?

    So I am correct in assuming that now all WE M4's sold from retailers such as Airsoft Buddy and WGC come with steel bolt stops?

    Do the regular M4 GBB's on the front page, from the first links to gunsguys, have the same set of upgrades?

    Does the Redwolf one come with the steel bolt catch?
