New winter project (help wanted)

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.

Another update!

Ok, so I called and asked them a question regarding replacement parts. You see, this small black piece that is screwed onto the hop up chamber broke, and now the inner barrel and hop up chamber are loose, and can slide past the outer barrel, and can get stuck on the loading nozzle.

They do not carry replacement parts for this (which is odd, because this small crappy piece is so important). The only option I have is to get a whole new hop up chamber, which can only be bought with a complete upper slide. Unless someone here knows a mod for making my own little piece, I am stuck with the whole new slide.

I realize this was confusing :) If you need pictures of the piece and where it belongs, let me know. Any information or help regarding this would be great.


The gun itself for your reference (shown without some parts) --nothing important or related

In the picture below, notice the small hole. That is where the screw goes in. The black piece is placed on the other side and is held on by the screw (when it gets tightened).

The picture below: Notice the small square outline. Thats where this black piece goes. (held on by screw)

Here is the piece itself (broken)
