1911 Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

QRF custom engraved AW Customs Springfield V10 in chrome/stainless/silver. Probably engraved by RIW. Pretty sure it's from an early run as I signed up for one on their Facebook within 10 minutes of them posting about it :P

 

It should say "GENESEO", not "SENESEO" :P

 

Other than the spelling mistake on the frame on the one I got the engravings are fantastic, thus why I suspect RIW does them, and they posted two days later on FB that they had them available as well  :P

The Springfield insignia on the right hand side of the slide, jizz :o

The pistol itself otherwise is no better or worse than my original AW Custom non marking V10 in silver. As expected.

 

Here's what the new one looks like that they will send me.

If you were to nit-pick, the kerning (letter spacing) of the serial number is too wide but I rather have them do that (probably artistic freedom because it "looks better") than a spelling mistake  :D

I prefer condition 4 myself. Taking pictures of my airsoft 1911s and posting them on forums :P

I gave up and “stepped in the same river” again (I used to have the previous 100th Anniversary version). Thanks to engravings (previous only laser marking) this looks much better, though the grey color is quite off on the other hand. Darkening will be necessary to reach a bit more realistic level.

 

But the thing I love the most (aside of the kick) is the box itself. Will by some ink stampings and print pistol’s SN on the box.

@hitmanNo2

As a challenge mostly. I've learned quite a few interesting things this way tho.. that there are 2 types of nozzles, the 2 types of bbu's..

Now I've stumbled on an issue again.

Everything is set and I can't install a stock mag catch ! I mean the mag catch doesn't fit.. ! :(

The mag catch is from the SCW1 tho.. I have to locate the Rtype mag catch I have somewhere tho.

Arnies needs to host pictures, even at a small cost. People couldn't be arsed with third party photo services. It not worth the hassle IMO

Not really a hassle imo.  Just use Imgur.  Organizes all your photos into albums.  A couple of clicks and you have a pre tagged img link.  Unnecessary cost for Arnies to host.

oh what have we here, the infamous detonics slide showing off its lower area at the rear to improve cocking the hammer on the draw, but what could it be attached to..

oh noes the humanity, actually in 1 way the stock helps a lot with the detonics slide, which has not the greatest accuracy thanks to its really short slide/barrel/sight radius

Pictures thread for Pictures.

 

Not discussion and/or arguements.

 

Definitely not discussion of real steel stuff. 

 

Thread cleaned up, don't do it again.

nice pic showing the importance of the interface distance between the hammer and the grip safety on a 1911, my TM 1911a1 like the real thing can be de-cocked one handed because of this specific interface distance.

 

because of the grip safety on a 1911 its quite hard to de-cock a 1911 one handed, but if you pull the hammer all the way to the rear it will push against the grip safety enough that you can lower the hammer one handed, this was a requirement of the original design over 100 years ago

 

the half cock position of the hammer on my TM 1911a1 is also there to make it more likely to lower the hammer on a 'loaded gun' and not have a ND

I would replace the Detonics slide and barrel for a 4.3 barrel and slide from a hi-cappa. I think it might look more natural with the stock and you would get a little bit of better range, accuracy and power.

 

I do like the concept though.

you sir are a mind reader (or you saw an earlier post i made ;) )

the holster/stock is ww2 era production for the inglis browning hi-power and so the 4.3 hi cappa combination fits inside the holster nicely, if i put a full length 5inch slide on it wont fit inside the holster anymore, but the full size 1911a1 looks more appropriate when attached (1st world problems i know)

 

in that pic its a series70 frame with a 4.3 hi-cappa slide and a aftermarket cmdr style hammer

These photos have smaller file sizes, should be good.

 

WA Nighthawk T3 with some unknown brand of slide. 100% positive it isn't Prime, Edge, Sheriff, Zeke, or the other few companies which typically make WA slides. Recoil spring guide and other parts are unique to the slide, they aren't compatible with my other stock T3 slide.

 

Here's another photo of it which was too large to upload. https://imgur.com/a/PtB3J0c

Some old, the SFA Micro compact I just got finished earlier this year. This is a small portion of my collection. A fair amount of metal bodied kits, though I've got around 150 WA's.

Lots, and lots, and lots of time browsing the Yahoo Japan auctions, and occasionally help from friends in Japan.

Prime/WA brass SFA V10, all stock parts short of the steel outer barrel.
