Have you ever tried to fit one on? Just curious. I don't want to spend a load on a new slide that won't fit is all. It sounds like you know what you're talking about, and that's good. Thanks for the info...good to know.

Kjw is a clone so note that changing mainspring housings may be a bit loose or very tight. Mainspring housings I find to be the most 'wiggly' when in non tm guns but could just be a late model kjw mold and tolerances could be off so and so forth.
Am I going to have to change mainspring housings for the hi-capa slides?

Long story short. All your tm parts should fit with minor fitting
This is good news, I had a feeling they would because the KJW is a TM clone. I just wanted to make sure.

EDIT: grips! the grips on the kjw are curved on the inside to allow for the c02. You will need to heavily modify tm grips to fit this curved part if you want the grip weights. If you don't care about grip weights you only need to slightly modify them
I was planning on making my own grips, actually. I know it's a bit of a pain in the ass to put the texture on them but I wanted to try to make them anyway. If I can't get it right I'll pick some up and remember what you said.

Thanks for the info!

EDIT: This is the slide I'd like to throw on that 1911:
