From the ones I had and saw on my
pal Ironsight's gbb's I'd say yep the
Pachmayr Legend and 1911 combat/
target grips have fit our metal kited
gunsó Guarder/Nova/PGC. PM him

Should fit the stock ones... My custom
grips for WA's have also fit TM's and
those dielines were drawn from real
steel grips.

Edit: Better yet! PM Nierbee and get
some kick ass real wood grips custom
made.

How's that possible? The size of the reservoir portion of either mag type is exactly the same...

The only difference is that the MEU mags have a mag bumper added to the bottom.

I see now that little cut open area just got to measure it right. Looks like its time to put the Chinese connection to use unless you know someone that does custom metal works?

Here it is the 1911 Blowback Unit I believe its because of hte 1911 Novak sight as a notch that sticks out into the blowback Unit

The standard 1911 blowback unit is not like that. Interesting.

Here are more pics. It mainly has to do with the Rear Sight

I believe if I used a normal rear sight I would not have to deal with this weird way its designed. Its not made like tradition sights where they just slip in

This one has a little notch sticking out as I circled



This is what it looks like in the mag, you can see the notch

CAPS GUN USE UPDATE

Definitely a gun you must use to see for yourself. As Illusion and others said, its hard to use a 1911 for CAPS and its true.

Some may find it better as the accuracy has a tighter grouping of a stock Hicapa BUT! I realized the Hicapa is better overall.

- As the Hicapa magazine you rarely have to worry about running out of gas
- Its easier to load the Hicapa magazine
- The Hicapa mags seem more sturdy to just chuck on the floor as you run the course as the MEU mags just look to nice to whip around

If anything I would highly suggest this gun for CQB though, reason being is that after a few games of use I barely noticed any burs to the slide and its great for shooting tight corners. While the Hicapa I noticed signs of use after gaming it hard after 3 games I started to see on the slide that the empty mag catch indent was wearing away, but that is due to the upgraded springs I assume.

Overall Battle experience Wise, it is very useful in CQB and found it to be very tight in cornering shots. Better grouping than the Hicapa and the MEU design was made to have more consistency in its shots.

Add on a PDI 6.01 and you have a nice sexy dot on dot beast
