Recoil is not a priority, probably only good if it has recoil as my aim is to practice my IRL shooting using this as an replacement when arctic climate prevents outdoors practice.
So what is your advice based on this premise?
(I have received some upgrades already, but if you have better expert solutions it is never to late to change to reach enlightenment.)
If your situation (and with what you are looking for), I would go with a stock TM slide.
It should last a LOT longer than 2 weeks. Then again 900 rnds in a pistol in 2 weeks is a bit insane.
I ran my 5.1 stock until I got a crazy deal for a complete creation slide kit.
I gave my plastic slide to a friend that his was heavily worn (but still working perfect, just looked like shit), and I sold the pistol because I was regretting the snappy TM slide.
Now I built a new IPSC set on a WE Dragon slide, and this thing is CRAZY fast. Plus crazy accurate with a 7" barrel and frame, so the sights are easier to align.
