Now many of you who have questions as to what will fit the WE Wilson Combat or 1911s alike will have answers to at least "some" of your questions.

iv upgraded my Wilson combat with the SD bull barrel and hybrid Chamber(i dun like the wilson combat one that much) both for Marui hi-capas.

and as you can also see above there's the Nova spring guide and plug in there as well as the airsoft surgeon 140%(?) spring. The spring BTW fixes 80%-90% of the wobble found on most WE 1911s.

now the big question that we have been debating about is whether or not the nova stuff will fit the WE fine. the answer is YES. BUT theres a catch. it seems like WE made the slide a shy bit too short so that the barrel + spring cap + guide rod sticks out 1mm too much


Now for those of you like me who dun really care..it runs as a great system even with it protruding a tiny bit like so







i love this barrel + chamber setup.

Now, with people that want to retain the authentic 1911 style with the bushing and all that it is a tough question as to whether or not the Nova spring plug for the 1911 with bushing will protrude like mine here because of the possibly shortened slide. if anyone also has a marui Hi-capa and can measure the length of the slide thad be great. because if it sticks out the bushing will simply not fit watsoever. so if you are planning to run that setup make sure you get measurements from the shop you are ordering from be4 you dive in.

on a side note. WA bushing SHOULD fit this fine. (not 100% sure)

Next upgrade on the list would be NIGHTHAWK custom desert gulfball denty looking grips. + maybe Hi-capa kimber slide to test if it will fit right

This ALMOST makes me want to buy one.... however, I'd be cheating on my marriage with Glock if I did.

Could you please give link for the upgrade parts that you put on that WE wilson Combat ? It would save me a lots of link for surfing it. I Plan to upgrade to on my buddy's WE as well. Thanks in advance.

Cheers !

Bleaches, that looks awesome. Lots of good info, definitely want to change my chamber to something with nicer markings (and probably barrel to match).

BTW, the slide isn't made too short, that millimeter up front is where the bushing usually lives (barrel is flush with the bushing, not slide). Slides made for a bull barrel are usually longer by that much.

I also ordered the same outer chamber and barrel from dentrinity, as well as a v12 slide and a few other things for my tm 5.1

Den's site sucks but they shipped fast, now I'm just waiting for customs inspection to be done so I can get my stuff :banghead:

Bookmarking this thread for those links, thanks a billion. I got both stock, the WE 1911 and a TM Hi-capa 5.1 so all this would come in handy. Great read.

This might be a Noob question but since i am a noob i can ask it haha. I got the airsoft surgeon spring set. It came with the recoil spring, hammer spring, stainless screw and gasket. Besides the springs can the wilson combat use the screw or new o ring? I was just curious. Oh and Bleaches did you swap the hammer spring too? I heard the stock hammer spring is good and you dont really need to replace it thanks!

it can use the whole set but i only swapped out the recoil spring. I figured after comparing the hammer springs that it was pretty much the same thing. so ill use it on another gun perhaps lol.

i believe your talking bout the piston head, which goes into to gas chamber(i think?) inside the assembly in the slide. you need to take apart the slide to get to it
