    FN Picture Thread

    TM NGRS, work in progress, had to print a really thick adapter plate for it to work. Will chop down the front at some point too.

    Other Pistols (2020 Onwards)

    As both the Springfield and Other Pistols thread have long been archived, I'm creating another "Other Pistols" thread! TM x RA-Tech XDM 40 RA-Tech steel slide, HK3P frame, Sringer Precision magwell and mag plate, with Springer Precision style 3D printed brake, 3D printed optic mount and charging handle. Once my trusty skirmish tactic00l black pistol, it has since been turned into an IPSC style open gun.

    Glock Picture Thread

    I buy the units directly from Volante in Korea, he ships worldwide. The G34 (black) hasn't had many rounds through so it wouldn't be a meaningful indication, however, the TTI style one as seen in the video has had many more, close to a thousand if not more given it's the go-to for the IPSC style shooting I do until recently, this slide made by Trigger Happy has slightly different fitting to normal Guarder slide so I suspect the barrel / slide contact is not the same as the Guarder ones, the TiN coating has worn / chipped at the corner where they meet, but otherwise it's held up well, there's zero wear further down the barrel near the muzzle / slide contact. I'm also using real sights for both the G34s, while Guarder advertise them to take RS sights, they actually don't, not without different modifications, the cuts are wider than the real ones so you'd have to either pack them out with materials (aluminium sheets or card), or in case of the TTI slide, which uses traditional TM design so I used an imperial countersunk screw to pull the rs sight down from under the BBU at the hole designed for grub screw. As for price of rs sights, you can get a set of steel made fibre optic sights for Glock (the one seen on the Guarder black slide) from Amazon UK for £26. Feel free to PM me if you want more specific info for your builds etc.

    Glock Picture Thread

    I own a steel G23, G26, G17 and G34 with two slides (TTI style and Guarder G34 as per that picture), they all have Volante unit installed. I only have a video of the G34 with TTI steel slide at hand, but it should answer your question.

    Very much so, to a point where I use them at an IPSC airsoft club often and do fine alongside people using short stroked hi-capas, basically I don't feel like I'll ever be bottlenecked by the guns despite having steel slides.

    TM x Guarder, steel slide gen 3 Glock34 with Volante BBU, and a hacky but functional 3D printed mounting solution for the SRO, 1.6mm below the top surface of the slide similar to the MOS range. Slide milled by @PureSilver

    WE G series MOS full house

    Like this..? This is the VFC x ALC steel slide version, but using Shield SMS instead of RMS or SMS2.0, but same mounting footprint. Had to copy ALC's RMR plate and get my own plate CNC'd as there's no aftermarket options 😕 FWIW though the SMS / RMS aren't actually co-witness so to speak, but more similar to 1/3 you'd find on rifle optics.

    It is indeed, very snappy with the Volante BBU as well given this is the lightest steel slide the unit is compatible with.

    GHK x Umarex Glock 17

    - Forged full steel CNC Slide - Steel reinforced frame (overmould) - OOTB green gas ready - CO2 mag planned - "Lightweight" plastic mags (probably a sleeve) - 4.9lb pull, different trigger kit planned for the future - No BBU housing, the whole slide is effectively a BBU housing.

    Out of interest why don't you wanna import one yourself?
  12. Ever since the Hollywood thread went to archive we don't seem to have a thread dedicated to movie, games or other popular culture inspired loadouts and collection, which accounts for the majority of the reasons I end up buying airsoft guns..! PUBG collection: KWA Kriss Vector WE x Ghost Island full steel M9 LCT VSS Vintorez Ino 1911 TM SCAR-L SA full steel Glock PPS Kar98 with PUBG style ACOG position (clearly game devs aren't familiar with the concept of eye relief) TM x LCS next-gen recoil M16 John Wick 1 + 2: TM x RA-Tech full steel HK45 (in lieu of P30L) with WT John Wick Comp TM x TH full steel G34 TTI Combat Master Continental chocolate coins...

    AK & Variants Picture Thread

    AC Unity 60 Rounder modded to take GHK internals, got it half price as it has cracked windows. Still work in progress, physically fits but don't dare test fire just yet until alignment is good. Once that's done, will look into expanding BB capacity and potentially even gas if it requires it. (Probably not necessary given default mag already goes through far more than one fill and I'm unlikely going to be able to double capacity. Helped by @Bada Bing's video for general mag mod tips, so thanks for that.

    1911 Picture Thread

    It is, they had a Beretta in that movie with similar arrangement as well, and they are seen throughout in both configuration, I don't really know how you would seal it, I guess the suppressor has a neck that extends through the comp to thread onto the barrel. It's not a terrible idea actually, given that already exist for rifles with all those Surefire brakes with QD suppressor threads and what not.

    Can't say honestly because it's just been sitting in a case and test fired less than 10 mags worth..!

    ALC Customs VFC Glock 17 Gen 5 MOS steel slide set

    Oh damn, good catch, I'll ask him what's going on lol (they are images of prototypes afterall, but you'd think this would be ironed out before it is surface treated) *He's responded: they knew about that already so don't worry
  23. According to a few people on an HK forum who have owned the TM Glocks with steel slide and Volante unit, and the VFC Gen 5 with steel kit, the general consensus is the VFC Gen 4 / 5 system is able to run a steel slide better even than the TM steel x Volante combo, as an owner of three of those, I'm both annoyed and excited. Some sample images of the ALC above, can't wait!
