1911 Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

Two of Nova's 2015 range of Colt 1911 kits for Marui.

SAI 1911 5" and SAI 1911 Commander.

 

The finish on the 5" model is Armour Black Cerakote, Courtesy of Suzutomo Co. Ltd. Japan.

 

All 2015 Nova 1911s feature steel-barrel and chamber, and the new full-rail system - so no need to use the inner frame from the Marui donor gun anymore.

 

Other kits due within the next couple of months are SFA MC Operator & Champion Operator, followed by the first release for Marui of the Colt Gold Cup.

First up though will be the Prime-Blue Colt 1911 WWI Model which features a complete set of steel parts as previously seen on the Prime/WA kit.

OMG!!! They are beautiful!! Especially the full size with the Armour black Cerakote, I would even go as far to say, it could be coolest build Iv seen ever, the paint job is outstanding, the controles really contrast well with armor black, they look almost graphite black, great attention to detail. I can admit I'm jealous, very jealous.

They are lovely Squad! Very very nice! I might be interested in that Champion Operator when it arrives!

 

Thanks Delta,

 

Lots of interest in the Springfield Champion Operator, and especially with the inclusion of the stainless-steel barrel and chamber.

The previous Commander/Pro-size barrels supplied by Nova in aluminium were very poor to say the least ;)

 

Release is provisionally Aug/Sep for Springfield's and Gold Cup.

Wahooo! I will wait patiently then! It's definitely time for me to add a 1911 to the collection. I would love a Springfield Operator LDC but canne find one anywhere! :( The Champion would be a very good substitute though!

I don't know what you may have heard about me.  But a *badgeress* cannot get a dollar out of me.

 

The pictures hadn't even completely loaded yet when I reflexively hit the 'like' button.

Because incase you ever forgot who made the guns design, those grips :D.

 

Still nicer looking than my bone stock TMs but then mine are for shooting well and never looking good ;).

Well I did several mods to the steel V10 perform as it should.

It's really sad for such expensive gun to have so many issues.

 

The RATECH steel guns perform much better than the FPR.

TM really do need to come out with a bunch of compact 1911s. The detonics is a bit pants and it has a lot of proprietary parts

I'm actually working on that. I have both the slides (from 3.8" to 3") and the frames ready.

 

Need funding for prototypes though... yuck.
