1911 Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

Just plain rubbing it on with a bit of cloth until it's not slippery to the touch but still has that wet look. Heavier oils work/last longer for this. Works best on flat painted surfaces or heavyweight ABS as they're a bit porous but works to a degree on regular ABS too.

Hehe, strange coincidence but this is the gun my girlfriend use when we are out shooting, after this picture she added those charms that's on babydolls 1911 in the Sucker Punch movie, it actually looks kinda cool, fits her well  :)

The reason I got her it is because she is a massive Supernatural fan and it's pretty close to Dean Winchester's pistol.

Al, Get in touch with Squad 701 mate :   ).

Hey Al,

 

I've a small supply of each, the release is very limited as only 200 were made (100 of each type) in total.

 

Half have already gone for Japanese distribution, so whatever remains will mainly be online sales only, most HK shops won't be stocking these over the counter.

 

So these should be sold out within a couple of weeks.

 

Cheers.

Sorry Big Al, it isn't going to happen anytime soon, they agreed to wait until Marui eventually release a compact size 1911, as they don't want to supply the compact magazines with kits due to price restrictions.

Literally any Officer/Ultra can be CNC'd tomorrow, but they'd rather your donor gun supply all the necessary parts and magazine :(

 

Nova Springfield Operator and Champion Operator are now available, but limited.

 

Next up is the Nova Colt 1911 WW1 [Prime-Blue] complete with full set of steel control parts, similar to previous Prime/WA version, but for Marui. (Mid-September)

Then shortly after that the Nova Colt Gold Cup [Polished-Sides] should be available.

 

Christmas will offer a surprise Commander-size 1911, again it will be a first for Nova for Marui ;)

 

Any other 1911s will be after 2015, expect the usual contenders Kimber, etc.....

 

Cheers.

Who said Marui do it on a WA base.

 

How much are the Champion Operators?  Buy surprise Commander length I assume you mean they haven't announced what model yet?  Any plaans for any 6" 1911's?

Original was just plain ABS. I scratched up the surface to give it a machined sort of grain then sprayed it flat black and oiled the surface.

 

I usually tape a piece of sandpaper around 400 grit on table, put slide on top and slide against a ruler, apply pressure and slide slowly & smoothly, after few times each side I buff the finish with some sort of polish, finally oil the surface with an old towel ( soaked with oil from other guns :P )

 

I always do this to my 1911/2011 ABS slides.

Classic Carry Elite is gorgeous but to fancy/expensive, can't see them making it, Shame.  Master Carry would be cool.
