Kind of pointless for me because I can`t find any shooting competitions near me but its get for training, looking bad A, and I`ll try to start some between friends.

So of course as the title says I`m building a race pistol.
My base pistol is a 1911 Hicapa by KJW which is amazing. Sending bbs 160 feet easy.

Tell me what parts would be the best and what would work great. I need it too look bad A too.

Okay things I`m going to start doing in order of when I`m going to do it.
1.Tune the sear and hammer set for short trigger pull (DONE) Also engraving my name on it lol (Done)
2. Cut the barrel and port it. Glock style( Will do tommorow or yeah...)
3. Cut a prototype slide design. Heavy ported. Getting ideas from Lazouche. Going to be a TM stock slide.
4. If all works properly. Short stroking with go in progess. If it works majestically. Will be switch to a metal slide.
5. Metal slide will be ported.
6. Rail mount and a red dot will be acquired. Along with a new handgrip, IPSC looking screws, Magwell maybe... , and a charging handle.
7. After funds are up. I will sell my l96. Get a snappier bbh and loading nozzle and light weight sears.
8. Get accuracy set up.
9. Training.
10. Field it train and pwn.

Tell me what part I should get that you reccomdend and if this would be nice. Thanks for reading and helping.
As you can tell I like working on pistols alot.

I've built a TM Hi capa race pistol...
TM Hi Capa 5.1 base
ProG4 IMM slide
ProG4 IMM steel barrel with gold finish
ProG4 SV frame
ProG4 steel recoil rod
SD real grip
SD magwell
Nova grip safety
Nova ambi safety
Nova slide catch
Airsoft surgeon SV trigger kit
SD POM nozzle
King Arms recoil and hammer springs
ProG4 carbon mount base
ProG4 thump rest
ProG4 sears
C-More red dot (replica)
PDI 6.01 6inch barrel
Nine ball bucking

In pictures there's not the AS trigger and the thump rest and I'll have to change the hammer... I've a ProG4 hammer with the SV logo on it but it's hell to install and I'm bored to do it...
It takes too much money to built(mine took over $1000) and time to tune it.
The slide speed is phenomenal!!
I want to built one some day for skirmishing with open sights and no compensator of course...

You can ask Captain KK at ProG4 but if he's bussy you'll wait several months!!

I don't have a recent photo of it ... I'll take some if you want.

Basically this is a 6.5 inch pistol... I didn't like race pistols so much but I handled one and I want one for me...
I was thinking to built an Infinity Hero for skirmishing but I don't fell I want to spent so much again...
I have a TM Hi capa dual stainless sitting around but I haven't decided what I'll do with it...
I'll wait to see if I can find a good kit at a good price.

Yes I drilled and tapped the frame to fit the scope mount... You need to do that on all mounts.

Yeap you're correct but rail mounts are ugly!

Actually you need to get 5 level holes!The scope mount I have has 3 holes from one side and 2 on the other. Check the photo's.

No I have the slide ride mounted on a ProG4 mount.
The serendipity is attached to a mount, you can't take out just the red dot.

This for the real guns...
They have a very big compensator and that protects the scope from the fumes!

I bought it like that... Most of the IPSC open class pistols are like this... I wanted an IMM without the cocking handle and here it is!

Many laughed at me for the lack of handle but this way it's dissasembled very easy... If you have the cocking handle you should first remove the scope mount ;)

Basically this is my favourite..

Well I haven't done it... But I'd suggest to get a ported barrel and then cut the slide to accept it.

Something like this

It would be easier to that.

APS3 has a really weird system...
I was thinking to buy one a few years back.. Until i actually hold it in my hands and shot it!
Don't get me wrong the gun is very accurate but it's a pain to shoot it!
The mag holds 5+1 rounds!

Here's why!

I'd rather stick to GBBs!!

Check the sear... It looks to me it's not hitting properly the mag valve...
