1911 Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

To be honest if you have the temperature for it (you think 10 degrees celcius is cold etc) then a KJ should be fine rocking on Green when at the coldest.

 

However in the UK unless you live in the south of the south you will get days that go down to zero degrees and need either the plastic frame or reliable CO2.

 

This is one of the reasons I stick with plastic TMs. Plus it isn't broken so really why fix it, they work everytime I draw and pull the trigger.

Can you do a few more close-ups on that S70? the finish on that nova kit looks SEXY.

 

I only got a chance to take a few quick snaps today, as I was building the Nova Kimber Warrior (2003 kit) yesterday,

lighting is very limited as is time, so nothing fancy.

 

As you said correctly, the false firing pin & extractor might not be worth all the extra bother.

 

Cheers.

Hnngh. I want one.

I could be wrong, but I think they are sold-out again, they made a very small initial batch last year which most online retailers didn't even get to see, so this time people who were waiting didn't take any chances and grabbed one, but I'm sure it won't be long until they resurface again, a real bargain when compared to the similar type finish on the Shooters Design Walther PPK & Sig P230,

which are nearly twice the price !

Cheers.

It's the new Nova kit.  Looks better than my Prime WA :(

Hi Hitman,

Is there any chance you can post a couple of shots of your WA ?

As it was one of the pistols I originally wanted back in the day.

I know there were two different Prime kits, one standard and the other a very expensive Prime-Blue,

like the S&W M36 and CZ75 Primes.

Sure thing.  Unfortunately it's just the black one. As much as I like Airsoft, I'm not too sure about dropping £900 on a pistol ha.

 

Will post some ASAP.

Cheers Hitman,
Very nice, being WA it would have been expensive enough to make with the price of Kit & Kebab-Gun (Donner),
and most likely the only route to take to build a Series 70 back then.
I don't think I've ever even seen a photo of the Prime-Blue version, again probably $1200 complete !

Here are a few shots of Kimber LAPD SWAT IIs, one Nova, the other PGC.
Icolater, I can give you the grips and hammer as seen on the PGC version for your new build.

10rd style mag came in:

 

KJW MEU. WE barrel. Ergo Grip grips. Streamlight TLR-1S. TM 40rd magazine.

 

 

That gun looks like the opposite of 'Ponsing about with shiney things'. Looks like a proper fightin' piece, that does.

WolfGeorge you are DA MAN! Damn those are nice.

I can't believe you put them straight on the ground like that though. I would never have the balls to do that with my guns, no matter how careful... :o
