There obviously wasn't an answer :P

But the answer is No, Marui mags absolutely will NOT fit in the WE, they're significantly different.

You have to get WE mags: airsoftparts has some (in Canada) or you can get them from a HK shop like eHobby.

What the compatibility between TM and WE parts like slides, barrels, frames, and internals?

We 1911s' ARE partially compatible with TM. On the 1911 models, The slide/barrel assemblies are interchangeable but if your putting TM on a WE there is a small rail in the slide you'll have to take out. The lower internals (hammer/sears/etc) of WE 1911s' are the same as TM HI-Cappas-not 1911, but the trigger stirrup and mag catch are not interchangeable.

What Ironsight said. The slides are basically HiCapa slides.

Outer barrels work but the slide may need a bit of filing.

Recoil spring, inner barrel, BBU are inter-compatible. The TM hammer spring is too short but I've used one by spacing it with a BB (i.e., drop a BB in under the hammer spring).

With minor fitting you can use a TM aftermarket trigger, although as mentioned the trigger bow is not compatible.

The WE 1911 can take real steel grips (I put real wood grips on a 1911 and real Pachmayrs on my WE MEU).

In my experience the barrel bushing is compatible with Western Arms' but I recall someone telling me it didn't work for them so YMMV.

A peculiar combination I was able to get working on my MEU was the stock WE slide, made-for-TM aftermarket barrel/chamber (Guarder) and a real steel barrel bushing. The RS bushing fits in the WE slide, but the stock WE barrels are slightly (<0.5mm) too thick; the aftermarket outer barrel was marginally slimmer and worked fine. The TM outer barrels are about 1mm longer than the WE ones.
