Alright guys, I am getting a hold of a WE 1911 soon, and its my new project for over the winter.

I plan on doing some upgrading and some modding to make this into a pretty nice pistol. From what I am told, its got some problems, but it will be a nice little challenge, and I got all fall/winter to do it.

First off, here is a link to the pistol:

Here is my upgrade list at the moment: Note that I am not entirely sure what is and what is not compatible. I will be sending evike a message asking what works, but any help/advice/personnel experience from you guys would be great.

Not to sure what all this means at the moment

Thats it at the moment. Been looking around for some other stuff. Mainly, I want to get this thing gas efficient and shooting smoothly.

Mag upgrades/mods

Apparently, some of the mags that I will be receiving have some leaking issues. Thats a given though with a we tech mag. I have seen some videos on how to make them more gas efficient, but have heard that sometimes the o rings need to be replaced.

Such as this:

But what about this:
Not exactly sure if I would need this or not. Would have to open up the mag to see whats up.

As you can tell, I am not a pro with gas guns. I have been researching for some time, but could use alittle guidance on the upgrade path, as well as helping me out with what some of these parts are.

Threaded barrels are problematic if they are not fixed since they are meant to move upward. Adding weight to this encourages wear. Try to find out if the Airsoft Surgeon or ProG4 fixed Hi-capa/1911 barrel is compatible. I would buy exclusively over seas with this many parts/much money. Try WGC and Redwolf. My 6.01 is a 6" and gives me a pretty good pump but I think it would be around 350FPS with .2g and propane. Of course, in joules, the converted velocity increases with heavier ammo.
