1911 Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

Yes, but I'm looking for just the pin. And was also wondering the Nova housing came with one and if so Id buy it.

 

Also, I was told in picture threads talking about this is still on topic. So its not off topic.

 

Thanks

How sweet … haven't seen a old version MEU for a long time. Beautiful … for me the best looking variant of the bunch at the moment with most individual character. Just good old style ;)

 

I have to admit I envy you for that beauty.

Wow, nice pics racingmaniac! The Springfield's awesome too! :wub:

 

Schaap, yeah it needed a lot of filing and customizing to get it to fit and work. Took me almost half a day and a sliced thumb to do it, but it was my first time installing a kit like that (probably the last too).

I wonder if you'd say that if he took a picture of it with his cell phone camera? :lol: Hmm... anyway, it looks great even without the comp.

 

Also, I like the 1911ish styling on the hi-capa, somegirls. It does give it a more sleek appearance.

Those grips just top that gun off. What type are they?

 

On a sidenote, my Kimber has the same standard form for too long for my taste. I've been trying to find a threaded barrel for this for some time now, but I just can't find any... Anyone that can point me into a direction? (It's a WA btw)

Bought this second-hand off a teammate, for a ridiculously good price.

 

WA with PGC Kimber slide and frame, guarder .45auto barrel & chamber and a pair of simmonich grips :)

Thanks for the comment guys....

 

the comp is just a bit more problem...the set screw system just work itself loose constantly that I got tired of it....plus the new issue of the Guns&Ammo's Book of 1911 gave me some inspiration on re-doing some aspect of the gun...

 

elrey is right though...it's all about the pictures....;)

Hi guys, quick question. Would a TM Hi cappa 5.1 guide rod be compatable with a TM 1911? Or a MEU? Im wanting to fit a recoil guide rod to my MEU, i know i need to faff with the stopper, what mods would i need to do to make it fit? Any alternatives? Thanks. Also, that springfield.. those grips.... just, amazing

All you need is a through bushing(as opposed to the closed one), and cut off the little knubby on the hop-up chamber to use the Hi-Capa guide rod. For use with barrel bushing though, you need a bushing with a barrel bushing lip as opposed to a regular Hi-Capa bushing...

The holster versions for Kimber Warrior, Springfield Operator and other railed 1911 models wouldn't work because the adapter gives the roundly shaped 1911 triggerguard a squared Hicapa/STI/Infinity shape. Only chance I see is a Safariland model for STI/Infinity. Safariland has it in the product line, but hard to get. And I'm not quite convinced, the adaptive rail is slim enough to equal a squared fram of a Infinity. I thing it is a bit more bold and might cause fitting problems.

 

1911 + rail attachment = bad combo for weapon specific molded holsters.

Rail Looks great on mine I think. Here a pic for you:\

I may get an actual railed 1911 sometime down the road. This is the Element version of the rail from ASGI

Not without SERIOUS mods to the sights. If you get the right spec front it isn't to hard, (I got the wrong one :| ) but the rear is a serious pain, and is mildly dangerous. (if you bust open a vial by accident and breathe some of that *suitcase* in it can be bad)

 

It can be done though, mine. (look at the rear sight.)
