1911 Picture Thread

Hell's Bells. EG723 (front) and EG720 with EG724 kit (back) with swapped barrels (I put the black one from 724 kit on my more often used 723 as it looks better, well, apart from the "BARSTO .45" markings). Hogue grips on 724 are real-deal, a hand-me-down from my dad.

Beautiful 1911, Jonny. You photo skills are phenomenal aswell!

 

BUT, Those Kimber grips have to go. You should get the Springfield Logo wood ones. Would fit much better with a Springfield 191.

 

Are they Kimber logo grips? Hard to read.

Oddly enough, those grips actually come with that gun. My roommate bought one, and it comes with the faux Pachmayrs that are identical to the Marui MEU ones and a pair of those wooden grips.

These wood grips say 'Kmeu' on them as they are just knock off Kimber wood grips. I'm going to leave them on until I can replace them with a more rich reddish brown grip panel. It contrasts nicely with the dazzling finish and black controls.

Still just a stock SOCOM GEAR 1911 Desert MEU. I've been wanting to get some new grips for it but I really can't decide what. I've been looking for some replica Gunner grips stateside with no luck.

Any recommendations on grips that don't cost half the price of the pistol itself would be great. Thanks!

Search and you shall find. First two are "Gunner Grips," second two are the elongated oval type found on Kimber Warriors.

Thanks for the links Piano, but like I said, I'm looking for those grips in the US. It doesn't look like that's going to happen though, but I can't persuade myself to order $12 grips from Hong Kong and pay double, maybe triple the shipping to get here. :mellow:. Maybe I can scrounge up some team mates to order with me though.

The Knighthawk performs suprisingly nice for a WE, I have to say. And I'm normally a WA- and Marui kind of guy, looking for details. I'm not convinced about details, here it is just a WE, but the finish is outstanding. Not that kind of paint that falls off just from looking at it. Hard anodized finish, really solid. But that's the benefit of WETTI, they are to WE what SCW is for WA in principle. Finish and rear sight are very good, rest isn't that outstanding, but performance is good due to this optimized high flow system and an out of box precission inner barrel. Very good bang for the buck. But I'll stick to customized Maruis and nice WAs, if I have a chance to get my hands on some models.

But for gamers I guess a real serious option, if one likes the look of this golf ball thing. Fits the PDW GBB well that will come out soon. Kind a like the FN P90 with the Fiveseven. :D

Haven't tested it myself yet. But a friend of mine said, Maruis wouldn't fit. I'll give feedback when I've tested with 1911A1 mags and the mags from the Marui MEU.

 

And yes, this is an unsusual WE. Hope, WETTI will do some more here. I think they already launched a copy of the Marui 4.3 Desert Warrior. It has this new high flow gas system but I can't say if the finish is robust WETTI style or standard WE and easy to scratch.

slide stop, front strap checkering(err, golf balling), thumb safety...

 

small detail, but most 1911s are only differed by small detail...

 

Wow didnt even notice that, I dont know much about 1911's, but looks close enough to me :P

Though the 2011 thread may fit that pistol better, it looks pretty interesting. How well does the shell ejecting feature perform for you?
