1911 Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

I'd love to see some WA Paras again. Seem to be quite rare these days. And are there still some MEU first versions out there with the standard high profile sights?

 

Can obligue on both counts give me a while. In the meantime my WE SOCOM bought at Copehill this year.

Hey, can the Marui Hi-cappa's take green gas stock? Or do i need to stick with 134a?

 

This is important as it will determine if i get a 5-7 or 2011.

 

Thanks in advance

Reaper.

I like to be different ;)

 

Now it only needs a new decent silver slide release (this one was bead blasted and looks like utter ######), a silver magwell and an illuminated frontsight. And that it'll be finally done, and I can start a new WA Kimber project.

They don't exist.

 

WA made them some years ago, but even if you're lucky enough to find them they won't work in your WE.

Two quick estethical questions for my feature build:

 

- do TM grips require a lot of modding to fit a WA? And a Prime'd or PGC'd? My real steel Hogues fitted my stock WA perfectly, but did require quite some filing to fit my Prime Kimber metal frame. Is this normal? For my second build I might rock the stock frame but after the next payday install a metal kit... Would suck if I had to mod my new grips again.

 

- I'm a fan of grooved grips, and I sometimes see an M1911 with a custom grip *and* grooves.

 

For example: this are custom grips:

And he installed them on this gun:

Is this doable? With cutting up american legend or pachmayer grips, or in a more 'friendly' manner without destroying expensive grips?

They make finger groove inserts that gets sandwiched between the grip panels and the frame. Which I assume is how that one was done....the downside is that it makes for much chunkier grip on a single stack 1911....

I was already thinking in that direction. Now that I'm home and able to use Google, I found out that Pierce produces such things (and quite inexpensive, around the ten lollar mark)

Switched back to my original black frame and sitted some lovely springfield grips.
