    1911 Picture Thread

    Don't be hating the wood grips now , I used to think Wood grips looked bad on modern 1911's as well but they've really grown on me. It was that or black diamond checkered grips and I think I made the right choice Yeah, it was a G'n'G Custom which was Marui based + a Nova Kit. Not so much a problem fitting, just a lot of patience needed. The lower frame is easily about 3-4mm too wide for the 310R/610R so I had to file the inside of the 310R/610R housing. I also needed to file a tiny bit of the lower frame as well. Be VERY careful if you do this, the wiring for the pressure switch is VERY delicate, too much tension on it and you'll screw up the switch (even letting the switch hang on its own weight is too much tension). This happened to my one and now the pressure switch works but you have to press the wiring into a particular position.

    After seeing Seraph's awesome 1911, I decided I needed to buy some new clothes for mine as well. Unfortunately, they were the same clothes as Seraph's 1911 Vickers Signature Vickers 1911 Magwell Rosewood Diamond Checkered Grips Surefire 310R/610R Safariland 6004 (1911+610R)

    Thanks guys, unfortunately it's not the buffer retainer, I have screwed it as far down as possible and it's still happening AND WE HAVE A WINNER! x 100000000 Thanks to everyone who helped, hope this helps someone else in the future!

    rvp, thanks, reassuring to hear Thanks for the input as well Renegadecow, I have an extra Buffer Tube spring that I bought to see if cutting the spring down could increase recoil - My M4 has now developed a problem, everytime I pull the charging handle back, the bolt gets stuck.... Here's the back story. At some point yesterday during the chronoing with the TSC Uni Rod, the BCG got stuck in the rear position, it would not return to the forward position. So I removed the buffer tube to see if I could resolve it and managed to in the end. Everything was reinstalled back to normal and it performed like it did before, I shot about 3 more full mags (where I got the chrono results from the previous page) with no problems. Later on, I noticed that the Buffer Tube wasnt on straight when I reinstalled it so I decided to straighten it. I used the ACM Stock tube wrench to undo the nut and whilst doing so I slipped a few times which lead to me denting the receiver thread on the buffer tube. After I got the buffer tube straightened I tried to rack the charging handle to make sure everything was fine, immedietely I noticed that I couldnt rack it all the way, there was definitely something stopping the buffer from going all the way back. On closer inspection I found that the dents on the buffer tube's receiver thread came through on the INSIDE of the Buffer Tube as well. Because of these dents, the buffer couldnt slide all the way into the buffer tube anymore. I tried filing the dents down but found that completely useless so I decided to hammer the dents back out. After doing that as best as I could I tested the buffer to see if it would fit. It fit, but was tight, so I installed and removed the buffer several times till it "pushed" the dents back out and so that I could get a smooth operation. At the moment it seems to be as smooth as it'll get. With the buffer spring installed the buffer returns to the front position everytime. If you remove the spring and then install the buffer, then the buffer doesnt come out of the buffer tube on its own weight, you have to shake it quite hard for the buffer to come out. After doing all this, I reinstalled the buffer, buffer spring, buffer tube back onto the lower receiver. I didnt bother realigning the stock tube as I just wanted to get it on quickly and test it to make sure it worked. It worked with no problems. I racked the charging handle (no mag in the M4) a good 15-20 times and each time the bolt returned to the front position with no problems. I then went to realign the buffer tube and thats where the problem began. - Everytime you rack the charging handle, the bolt carrier gets stuck, I've tried everything I can think of but I can't find the problem. The bolt moves backwards as normal but is getting caught on something when it goes to return, but I can't see or think of what it could be for the life of me. If you partially rack it or rack it about 95% of the way back, it returns back as normal, but once you've racked it all the way back it gets stuck. I managed to rack it back all the way and have it return like normal just twice To fix it, you have to remove the entire buffer tube assembly and then remove the rear receiver pin. Once the rear receiver pin is removed you have to pivot the upper receiver upwards so that the bolt can clear whatever its getting caught on. Here are some pics of the upper and lower receivers with everything installed, am I missing anything? I can't see what it could be getting caught on at all... Here are some video's which will hopefully help explain it a bit a better. 1. http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v458/tan...nt=MOV00456.flv Here is me racking the bolt in just the upper receiver, no problems, feels very smooth, doesnt seem to get caught on anything whilst I'm racking it. 2. http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v458/tan...nt=MOV00457.flv I am testing the buffer is working smoothly, again no real problem here, a bit stiff on the third time I pushed it down but that was it. 3. http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v458/tan...nt=MOV00459.flv Racking the charging handle, the first and second time are partial racks, third is 95% of the way back and the fourth surprisingly is all the way back. Fifth time and it gets stuck. 4. http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v458/tan...nt=MOV00460.flv Removing the Stock tube, here you can see the bolt stuck and caught on something. 5. http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v458/tan...nt=MOV00462.flv Removing the rear receiver pin and pivoting the upper receiver and then putting the Bolt Carrier back into position. 6. http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v458/tan...nt=MOV00463.flv A close up of the Bolt Carrier, everything looks intact to me.... Sorry for the essay like post and thanks for any help in advance!

    For those who are interested, here are a few quick impressions on the TSC Uni Guide Rod. Installation was tight, getting the whole assembly into the Valve Rod Stabliser required some force. I can't say how much tighter than the stock one though as a friend installed it for me I'll add that there are no instructions, okay its not exactly rocket science but if you're not familiar with how it works or if you havent read up on any info then you can make some mistakes, me being one of those people. Initially I had the adjusting nut BEHIND the nozzle assembly and not inside it until I checked the AS123 website and saw the pics of it installed - For easy reference, I'll refer to the "Locking Power Adjustment Knob" as "adjusting nut" The locking screw on the adjusting nut, well what can I say, I've lost mine already. It was on tight enough so that you couldnt turn the adjusting nut but evidently not tight enough. At some point when I was testing/chronoing it, it must have worked itself loose and is forever gone into some kind of crevice. So lesson learnt, make sure you tighten it was much as possible. Here are the pics of it installed, I hope I've done it correctly, if I have not then someone please point me in the right direction I deliberately left parts 42-46 off, so just imagine that they are installed So if I'm not mistaken, the following picture shows the adjusting nut configured for the Maximum power setting (adjusting nut flush with part 41)? And in this next picture, it should be at it's weakest power setting as the adjusting nut is sat as far away as possible from part 41? - I can't help but think there is still something amiss with it though, I chrono'd it earlier at what I think is the maximum power setting (adjusting nut flush with part 41) and was getting an average of around 340-345 FPS with Propane and Blaster 0.2g BB's. The lower readings were around 325FPS and the higher ones around 365FPS, I chrono'd 2 mags consecutively and I would say about 85% of the readings were in the 340-345 range Everything was done outside, the temperature was around 13-15 Degrees Celcius. I should also add that I did not reinstall the Part 37 O Ring, it didn't seem to be of any use, could this be what's causing the low power? Everything else is installed like the stock parts from what I can see. It seems low powered compared to the results rvp69 was getting (as posted here http://www.arniesairsoft.co.uk/forums/inde...owtopic=170486), I know his ambient temperature was a lot higher but it can't have made over 200FPS difference could it? To be honest I'm not too fussed, I wanted it to shoot at 330-350 so this is a pretty good score for me right now , just need to disassemble and sort out the hop as its on permanent on at the moment. So, if anyone else with one of these could share the results they got that would be appreciated. Sorry for the long post EDIT: I noticed a weaker recoil as well compared to when it was shooting at it's original power (430FPS), would it be feasible to cut down the buffer spring (part 92) to increase recoil? Thanks in advance

    LOL, well I always assumed it was just grease/lube of some sort but I just checked to see if I could wipe it off and it does indeed look like dried glue/adhesive.

    Hi all, Just got my TSC Uni Guide Rod from Airsoft123, once again great service. My one has the locking screw for it, the screw head is TINY though and none of the Allen Keys I have at home will fit so will pop down to the hardware store later to see if I can find one. I'm having a few problems with installing it though, the main problem is I can't seem to get the stock Part 38 out (the entire Valve Guide Rod housing assembly) out. I've removed as many parts as possible (Part 36, the roller bearing assembly on top of the bolt, the nozzle assembly etc). Here is where I am upto I can't seem to find the white block near the rear end of the bolt on the exploded diagram... Thanks in advance

    I was sent my tracking number today and it works. Ordered on Saturday 11th, got a hand typed confirmation of payment on the 12th and got sent my tracking number + confirmation of postage today - great service, if they can keep it up I'll definitely be using them again.

    Yeah it should be fine, I use the ACM ones from Ebaybanned. Did you not get one with your M16? My WE M4 came with one, it was buried under the packaging though along with the speedloader.

    I think it'd be safe to assume so, I think the closest sized ones would be one from WA. I dont recall a friend having to do much to fit his 610 to a WA Marsoc, the guy I bought the 310R from had to file a bit of the frame on his WA Kimber TLE The frame on my one was easily 3-4mm too wide, no question about it.

    The slide release came with the 310R when I bought it from the seller. The fitting was a *bramston pickle* and I would die a happy person if I never had to file anything again, if I do have to then I vow to buy a dremel. Both light and the lower frame of the 1911 have been irreversibly modded
