Recommended Posts

Ok, is there a special machine or or are they just like ordinary paper?

And, Do I need a machine you use wet sandpaper`?

You can use sandpaper by hand, just keep a wet sponge or something handy. I'd get a sanding block or a flat surface though, it helps you to keep the slide corners sharp instead of rounding it....it is worth noting that you are better off sanding in one axis only(say along the length of the slide), such that you get the sanding mark align and it'll look less messy afterward...

Ok, For compounds I've tried a No name one, it sucked, I saw a friend polishing his car with some kind of cream, is there a difference?

go for G3 cutting paste or t-cut. then a polish after that to seal it. :)

 

it'll take a lot of elbow grease if your not using a machine though. you can get buffer heads to attach to a regular drill and mount it in a vice or workmate.

Just one last puzzler there Punisher....

and finally, 51QBH-

Tercel1911qig14.jpg

 

 

Wonder why every other Tercel pictured out in the world has completely different markings..... :huh:

 

 

...oh and sorry, one last thing I promise-

 

Just so I understand, the Tercel has been available at eHobby for a week and a half now I think right? So you bought it, received it, polished and removed all the existing paint out from the nooks and crannies and had it chromed in that space of time?

 

 

Well done to you! :mellow:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Slainte!

Punisher's pic shows 'UNITED STATES ... something' on the frame, the others show 'ASGK TOKYO MARUI ...'

 

Although I wonder if the Tercel has copied the TM trademarks... I think the shops might just have uploaded a pic of a TM?

.....markings look the same to me..

 

Really?

 

and you looked at the pictures and all right? ;)

 

 

Let's also consider the placement of the crossed cannon logo at the back end- on Punisher's 1911, it is directly above that pin- on any Tercel/Tokyo Marui you can find in the world it is slightly to the rear, or left of that pin. On the Tercel/TM there is a number '75' on the right side, front end of the trigger guard- kind of difficult to be 100% on this one, but in the pictures he supplied originally, I don't think there is a number there on his.

 

It's really a nice gun there, whatever it is- just curious why someone would need to 'shade the truth' about it as my mom used to say :(

 

 

 

 

Likely we'll never know the real story- still a nice gun, thanks for sharing I guess :unsure:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Slainte!

Ive also notice he has a flat finish to the back of the slide lock where the others are oval, but this is an easy mod if you have the right tools. Well spotted on the logo on the rear of the frame. Maybe its an early version of the Tercel?

It's not a Tercel, I think that's been established :P

 

Could be a WA-Magnatech possibly, or more likely a metal kit for one- Here's mine and it's trades are actually closer as far as text- same placement of the crossed cannon logo as the 'real' Tercel and TM however....

WA made a chromed 1911, but I don't think it was a M1911, I think it was the Series 70, so....I'm starting to lean towards a chromed metal body kit on a TM, or WA or Bell I suppose-

 

 

 

 

meh....whatever...it's a mystery now ;)

 

 

 

Moar Pictures!!

My 1911's, want to get another 1911a1 to polish right up :D

 

1911a1 is a Tercel 1911, full metal, fully TM compatible, lovely feel to it, feels on-par with my gaurder kitted TM

 

The clip-draw'd Detonics has a real clipdraw (modified to fit a detonics) and the hornbill RSOV wood grips

 

The other detonics is a bogo standard Army Detonics
