1911 Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

'WolfGorge' Get a Nova, Spartan or LCT through guide rod plug, as they are designed for the longer slide apron/guide rod tunnels like that of the TM 1911s. The Shooters Design ones are for the Hi-capa only.

Otherwise it just won't be a true Colt National Match :(

Yes currently I'm using a stoc WA with rod, I have that kind of plug on both of my Kimber Raptors and it's the same lenght! I need something longer! I haven't seen how the Hardballers plug looks like, perhaps I could modify that!

I'll post a picture to see what's the deal on that thing!

 

I'm thinking to modify a stock plug ... Since I can't find anything that fits!

Hi George.

 

The brass Gold Cup National Match kit you have is actually the "Cobb Special" version, (and it's very nice too :) ). It's a modified GCNM with some tweaks, for example, Bomar fitment, modified main spring housing, different front sight and beavertail added.

 

I suspect that the recoil spring plug that you require is the same design as used on the GCNM, Hogue 5" & 6" customs, Cobra and AMT Longslide pistols. It differs from other plugs in that the rear flange is mostly removed leaving a small section of lip. Best shown in the picture below:

You can see the lip and corresponding notch cut out for it in the recoil spring plug housing on the slide.

On this particular WA set up, it fixes the recoil spring plug in situ, thus the chequering is always square!

 

If the Cobb GCNM kit is the same as my standard Prime GCNM kit then that's what you need.

It is feasible that you could remove the excess rim off the plug you have, to be left with the correct amount of "lip" (or even modify the slide so it takes full rim plugs!). Then you just need to decide if you want a solid recoil spring plug or one for a full length guide rod, assuming you stick with the traditional straight barrel/bushing combo....which I think you should ;)

Thanks man that's EXACTLY what I need!

 

Are there replacement parts for it? I mean can I find that recoil plug?

 

I hought to modify my plug, Ireally don't want to modify the slide, though it's not something hard, I'd preffer to keep it like this.

 

I've now installed a bull barrel, IMO looks better but I'd prefer to keep the stock look.

Unfortunately, I've never seen that part sold as a separate item. You could always ask Sanko or Enten if they could get it for you, being suppliers in Japan it may be easier for them.

 

I think careful modification of the part you have is the easiest solution, at least you know that part can be replaced with less difficulty should you need another.

If someone has silver controls (slide stop, barrel bushing, recoil spring plug and single Colt 1911 army style safety PM me)

Very nice. I love the sheen on those brass MBKs. At least straight after they've been polished ha ha. I never knew about those funky plugs. You learn something new every day.

Correct I bought $1340 from Japan about 2 years ago....

 

There are and a bit cheaper versions, mine cost that much cause the kit included the brass beaver tale, brass MSH and brass trigger.

It might be pinned in that position, something people do to reduce the time taken to draw (or so they claim :P) and rely only on the thumb safety?

Nope you can't press it... It's like the Novak one piece beaver tail /MSH, for quicker draw, as it supposed to be racing pistol. I really like it, now I'll have to find a Colt SCW3 hammer, Colt thump safety and it's finished!

I like and that way but I'd prefer the original Colt look.

 

I has pretty strong recoil but the action is slow due to extremely heavy slide, at 25 Celsius I managed to fire 20bbs and the slide locked back, I was pretty impressed to be honest.

It's very heavy... The brass kit without mag is still heavier than my metal Kimber Raptor with mag!

Well, I must admit, I can't stand the 1911 grip safeties. Never seen the point of them, in airsoft anyway, especially since I dont carry my pistol cocked and locked. I have two M1911 projects running atm, one retains the grip safety on the basis that it needs to be accurate to the screen-used model it is based upon the other scraps the grip safety altogther - something which I am looking foward to. Besides, I think some M1911s actually looks better without them anyway:

Also, 1500 posts, woo! I'm glad I didn't waste this milestone post on some useless thread - the M1911 thread is worthy :D

I think I have a Colt thumb safety somewhere Wolf. Would you want to trade for the safety currently on it?

 

Nice and shiny. My kind of gun.

Actually I want to buy it if you sell it... I also need this ambisafety for another gun.

 

Love it Kenworth... Did you polish it? It look amazing.... What kit is it?

That longslide is RS.

 

Tis indeed, should've pointed that out - thought it would be self evident, that ones worth a few thousand dollars (probably) :)

 

BTW, wolfgeorge, that Match model is georgous mate. I like it with the Black/Gold combo as it is btw, although I know you have intentions to make it even more bling.
