    That's beautiful. One of these days I'll get around to making my M29 metal. As far as the hop-up goes, I believe that my M29, which is the middle version (the super old school have no flow resticter and a large gas opening. Mine has a large gas opening but was then retrofitted with a brass flow restricter so it only shoots 330-350) did have a simple hop-up mech that was adjustable via an allen key. I'm not sure if the newer models are the same way though since they may have made changes when they de-rated the gas system even further. Hows the power of the newest versions? When you fitted the kit did you look to see if you could bore out a larger gas opening to get the power back up to where it should be?

    I'm excited to see the pictures. The g-spec barrel was my very first thought when I saw this. If you have a chance to run the finished product on a chrono it would be great to see the results of that too.

    Dang, someone else finally found another PGC G18 slide. I was hoping that mine was the only one that would ever turn up. I guess that I still have an edge with the Gen. 2 frame though. Anyway, that looks lovely, where did you find it?

    I have to echo others statements and point out that high end GBB's tend to have to "venting" system while cheap clones have the silent fill system. The spewing gas is a plus because you know when your mag is full. With a silent fill valve you just have to guess. The spewing also allows you to purge all the gas out and fit as much liquid into your mag as possible. To be honest, your experience sounds more like an empty gas can than anything else. As far as gas consumption goes, I easily get a full mag with a heavy steel slide and 150%+ recoil spring even when the temperature is as low as 50F.

    Glock Picture Thread

    I haven't done a whole lot in airsoft recently (due to school) but I do have pictures of a race Glock frame that RSP helped my put together toward the end of the summer. It wasn't my intention to have the grip cut as short as it was (I really just wanted the base plate of the mag to extend below the magwell) but it's current configuration is surprisingly comfortable. I just use the magwell as a pinkie rest which helps tighten up my grip and makes it more natural to use the thumb rest (something that I'm not used to). The gun itself is just a stock G17 that I got for $35 and fixed. The slide does have a crack in it (as near as I could find out from the seller the gun has have ~17,000 rounds through it) but it still works just fine. I have other stock TM Glock slides but their trades are all mangled so I figured that I would just use this one. As far as actual frame features go there are the following mods: - Stock TM frame - Under cut trigger guard - Added thumbrest - added WE magwell - cut down grip for faster reloads with magwell - small reshape of grip - stippling on grip - Paint job RSP was kind enough to do this job for me and I cannot thank him enough. He has helped me on a number of custom projects now and my collection wouldn't be what it is without him. As far as the future goes, I've always wanted to get prog4 to make me a G17L slide and I think that this would be the perfect gun for that. Honestly though, it shoots best with the light stock slide so I'm not that inclined to upgrade it (I have my steel TM G17 if I want something heavy).

    I've blown a rocket valve before in my KSC G17. I think that Vicious even managed to blow up some aftermarket ones (though I forget which). The stock part certainly won't last forever though.

    Those are interesting. They look way smaller than the stock grips though. How does it feel when you hold the gun?

    For a perfect KSC Glock the only way to go is an Old School frame. The Pro Arms are ok but their trades are no better than stock TM. I actually have my KSC Glock 18C with an old school frame up for sale right now (haven't been pushing it hard but I am trying to find a new home for it). The only place to get the OS frames is the used market though so be prepared to do some searching to find one. The other cool thing about KSC's is that you can throw a few more RS parts on them (some sights, mag catch, etc.).

    That's a really cool project. Thanks for posting up all the nice pictures.

    1911 Picture Thread

    I like the look of your set-up with the SERPA. That's pretty much how I would want to set up a 1911 if I had one.

    They are an awful lot of fun. I am looking to get a Marushin with a modern S&W type action now. If someone has one that they would pass on let me know. Especially a Marushin Super Redhawk to keep the Blackhawk company.

    My hand cannons. I decided that I needed to get a gorup photo before I started to pass things on. Sorry about the D'Eagle.

    Thanks. Not to long ago I found out that my custom grip source is quitting airsoft so the grips pictured will probably be my last special set. Kind of sad really.

    1911 Picture Thread

    Thanks. For the moment I do like having the lower profile thumb safety since I seem to have issues with accidentally changing the position of the safety. I have considered an MEU style safety but this works well so I probably won't bother changing it.

    1911 Picture Thread

    I had a spare SD Kimber slide sitting around and decided to build a .45ACP upper for my 10mm Colt Delta Elite. I'm very pleased with how this looks and I think that I will hang onto it so that I can swap back and forth between this and my old Delta Elite Upper. I really love this 1911. It has been fine tuned and has the best trigger pull of any of my guns (almost no travel and feather light). I never skirmish with this but it does a great job of filling the job of fun plinker. It is easy to shoot sub inch groupings at 6m with this. One other thing to note about this build is that it was done before NOVA released all of their 1911 parts. This meant that I had to do a lot of custom work to get this look. These days it doesn't seem to special but back in the day it was pretty much one of a kind. The parts list for the gun with the Delta Elite upper: TM 1911A1 TM Hi-Capa 5.1 Mainsrping Housing (Custom Fit) TM Hi-Capa 4.3 Thumb Safety (Custom Fit) TM Hi-Capa 5.1 Recoil Rod TM Disconector (Modified for Ultra Light Trigger Pull) TM Barrel Bushing (Polished) KM Hammer Strut PGC Colt Delta Elite Frame (Silver) PGC Colt Delta Elite Slide (Silver) PGC Colt Delta Elite 10mm Auto Outer Barrel (Black) PGC Colt Delta Elite High Visibility Rear Sight RCW Recoil Bushing RS Wilson Grip Safety (Custom Fit) RS Wilson Combat Magwell RS Wilson Combat Magazine Bumper RS Delta Elite Medallions PDI 5" 6.01mm Tightbore (112.5mm) PDI NeXT Hammer (Silver) PDI Kimber Style Trigger (Black) RSP Custom TM 1911 Grips 9Ball Dyna Piston Head 9Ball Chamber Packing SD 150% Recoil Spring SD 150% Hammer Spring Chairsoft Custom Works Hammer Mod Chairsoft Cutsom Works Disconnector Mod Chairsoft Custom Works Trigger Tune For the pictured Kimber Upper the upper is: -RCW Recoil Bushing -PGC Colt Delta Elite Slide (Silver) -PGC Colt Delta Elite 10mm Auto Outer Barrel (Black) -PGC Colt Delta Elite High Visibility Rear Sight +TM 5.1 Bull Barrel +SD Kimber Slide +SD Kimber Sites +TM 5.1 Recoil Bushing Here's a shot of the gun with the 10mm upper:
