1911 Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

the new Les Baer 1911 coming from SG is a KJW. i know the rest are all WE for now, but at least SG are breaking the mold with KJW to get some better quality 1911s.

SocomGear are supposed to fit upgraded valves and springs to WE pistols but ive yet to work on one that has.

Glad to see though they are swapping to KJW. Totally TM compatible as 'RacingManiac' says. Pity their Les Baer isnt based on a REAL Les Baer varient, Ultimate recon?? They should have called it the 'Custom Carry' then it would have been right. Mind you its nice to see an airsoft Les Baer at all!

a quick question , do real steel 1911 grips fit the stock TM frames ok? i quite like the look of some pachmyer/hogue wraparound types.

 

Also id like some nice grips for one of my TM Detonics, what would i be looking for? as in size or model?

 

feel free to pm me to save clogging the thread too much.

regards,

 

Jimmy.

As for the Detonics you need specific grips as it isn't the same size as Officer, however you can get Pachmyars also RSOV do Hornbill wood ones.

Hogues look great.

 

Photo: does the paint on the pistol really have that granular quality, almost identical to the plastic on the case it's sitting on? When I look closely, both also seem to have a kind of irridescent quality (hits of green, blue and purple).

I think it's just because my iphone camera has the photographic ability of a baked potato....

 

It's a nova kit, very nice finish in person- doesn't really resemble the case at all. Just waiting on a VFC 310 and safariland for it :)
