I haven't much experience of airsoft pistols to go on, but my main gripe with 1911's is the shape of the top of the grip at the top. The bit that sits on the crook of your thumb is a good thing to stop skin or glove getting trapped by the slide, a la CSI, but the distance between the back of the grip under it and the trigger is too small, so holding it with my fimger-end on the trigger, rather than further up my finger in a way that means that the action of pulling the trigger pulls the whole pistol slightly left, isn't really posssible with a firm grip of the... er, grip lol!

Hey, maybe a Dr. can cure my dislike of M4's too, mate?

Edit: oh wait it says... must have missed it when I looked through. It does look shorter than an 'a1' trigger though but maybe its just the frame's shape?

You're right, not sure how it's worked out like that. It is a Marui A1 trigger though that I can assure you.

What are the middle two in the group shot? A night warrior with new grips and sights on the left as far as I can see but what's on the right?

Pretty much an MEU and a Night Warrior put in to a blender. Without going in to massive specifics:

- Left Side is the NW frame with MEU slide, NW outer barrel and RS 'ERGO' OD polymer grips
- Right side is the MEU frame with the NW slide, MEU outer barrel and RS Colt rubber grips




I'm not really a massive fan either, I hate the control's layout, I hate that's they're only single action and I think the safety is totally stupid... Or at least my MEU safety is stupid. It can only be engaged when the hammer is cocked and it also locks the slide. You might as well just not cock the hammer, it's exactly the same.

That's how the RS works. It's not exactly complex; all you do is load and make ready, engage your safety, then holster. When you want to shoot, you draw, safety off, fire. The browning hi-power works in an extremely similar fashion and the system makes for a safe and reliable firearm. Guys in afghan/iraq have shot themselves with 226s before now due to their complete lack of a safety catch. You physically cannot make the Sig safe while carrying a round in the chamber, and if you don't carry a round in the chamber you've just set yourself up to fail and die in a close quarters combat situation. Not to be over dramatic, that's just the reality of it.

I had a go with a TM Dragon something-or-other a few weeks back and the beaver tail was under so much spring tension that I had to squeeze the damn thing so hard that I couldn't aim it or pull the trigger without losing my aim completely. It also makes it a massive pain in the ass to de-cock the hammer slowly, to avoid discharging the weapon.

TM don't make any type of 1911 with 'Dragon' in the name. So I don't know what you were shooting, but a TM grip safety that's functioning correctly does not require any conscious effort on the shooters' part to depress, you just make sure you've got a correct and proper grip on the weapon and it takes care of itself. Sounds like you had a WE.

If you want to decock it's a 2 second process in involving dropped the magazine out slightly, firing off the action and then reinserting. That's the entire point of the manual safety though, there's no need to decock a 1911 on the skirmish field. If you're going in to the safe zone you drop the mag and you're then totally safe either way, same as any GBB. Treating the action of decoking as a way of making a weapon completely safe is a sure step down the path towards a negligent discharge.

I also think it's crazy retarded how none of the updated models have been given higher capacity magazines. If the HK USP .45 can hold 12 shots, why is the MEU still only holding 7 or 8? Couldn't they maintain the design but widen it to make room for a double stack mag? It's like they're limiting the capacity on purpose.

You know all these Hi-Capas different companies make right? They're not fictional airsoft-only guns, they're based on something called a 2011. One defining factor of the 1911 is the fact they use a single-stack magazine and hence have a very narrow profile grip area to the frame. 2011s work just like a 1911 but with a wider frame to facilitate wider, higher capacity, double-stack magazines.

I also don't like that the spring guide under the barrel doesn't stick out of the slide with the barrel when the slide is locked to the rear. I know it makes no difference to the performance or function, but when it's out with the barrel it just looks so much better in my opinion. M1911s lack that and it's one of the main things I dislike about them haha.

Buy an after market spring guide/recoil guide rod plug then. Can be had cheaply and it's an incredibly easy part to swap.

Please don't interpret this as me 'having a go', but I think there were a few misunderstandings going on there which I wanted to try and address.

I'm still having slight issues with the hop, and how it's seating itself, plus it's raining like a monsoon and blowing a gale, so I can't sight the ACOG in properly.

Which is agonising... I wanna shoot it to hell and back lol.

I also still have the new trigger mech and hop unit to fit, as well as rewiring it with low res wire, and switching the connectors to deans, once they all arrive anyway.


Seems to be having a lot of problems...espeically for a 320 gun, not as if it's really cheap or anything...

Undoubtably the worst gun here, but I'm a beginner and I've only just got it.
Also hasn't got any rails and I like the foregrip handguard thing, could get some rails but it would screw into the battery compartment, I could try to glue it on but I've forgotten the adhesive I would need, the upper receiver is plastic (sportline gun) and a rail would be metal.
Getting more magazines though and some 9mm magpuls.

U liking the green camouflage? no it's two-toned for now :(
When I get UKARA I'll go back-to-black though. Won't buy a pistol until then either so it can be realistic, don't have to pay extra or paint it myself.

Anyway if I ever want to do some awesome customisation that'll be on my next gun when I'm a lot more experienced and have done airsofting a lot longer, know more about the guns so I can actually customise the internals (if I tried that now I'd probably break the gun, thus wasting 150) and I might get an M4 with RIS and stuff. I'm going to practice painting my M56C first so I can do a better job on my MP5.

You can still customise them a bit ;-) Here's my old one before I sold it, fitted with a RAS and wired to take a PEQ battery. I didn't do the original paintjob (I bought it because I quite liked it), I did however try to paint the RAS to match, but didn't have the correct paints. It looked a bit better in real life :P

None of those things are problems. I was just aiming for absolute perfection.

If you want a full rundown of it then I have two threads about it in the review section.

Did it not fit on with low mounts?

I never liked the look of anything on high mounts. The scope looks nice though. What's the reticule/zoom/is it illuminated? etc.

The low mounts too low, so getting a raised top rail, was only too low by a couple mm, but stopped it fitting. 4-16x50, red/green illuminated, couple more pictures in my L96 thread.
