1911 Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

Nice work squad, they look amazing as always, that nighthawk custom's cerakote finish is beautiful and the bumper mag plate finishes it of perfectly, you should do your usual build up to Christmas with a gun a day from December 1st onwards, maybe a new thread so you can show different gun types on the same thread.

Hey Icolater,


I actually haven't gotten many new guns to post etc.


So it might get a bit boring after a while :(


The Readyfighter Nighthawk/Ludus mag-bases should be on sale from next week.

A couple of shots of my Nova/Marui Colt Commander after I decided to give it a new look.


It was looking like a smaller version of the S70, it needed an update,

but I was only willing to change the grips for its new identity  ;)

I absolutely love that two tone Prime/WA Kimber Ultra CDP buddy! Would give an arm and a leg for it! If you ever decide to sell it you know who to call! 

Well Nova had plans on releasing Ultra Compact size handguns for Marui at the end of this year,

but plans change very fast when public demand is factored in :(


Maybe when the SAI and ZEV craze has eased off, things will get back to normal.

Good luck trying to find one though, well sold out at this stage. I have an unused nova lapd swat frame and slide I might sell in the next week or so. If your interested. So keep an eye on the classified section.

Also kwa have the 1911 PTWs. There are 4 to choose from two kimbers, a custom ii and a warrior and two SAs one railed one not. No trades marks unfortunately but damn well made if you ask me. But unlike the kjw they are not marui comparable. But I really like how well they are made and they shoot well.

Too many nice guns in here...


What's the go-to brand for a metal railed 1911 these days, at a reasonable price?

Depends and how much you want to pay and what's available at present.


PGC kits are currently available again, but I'm not sure of railed 1911s though.


Nova have been very quiet for the last 18 months due to commitment to other items of interest.

But that should be changing in the next few months with some new releases due shortly.


I'm expecting at least 10 kits of one particular 1911 within the coming weeks.

Can't say what but it smaller than normal and very in-vogue ;)


If interested PM me :)

Gotta love the Nova goodies!  Time for some inexpensive 3d printed parts!


Wilson type flanged barrel (and the old RMR tall sight combo)





And warren type sights + flanged barrel.





Aand a rear shot of those sights before the assembly
