Army R17, A 1911 MEU or a TM Hicapa 5.1

For my first pistol:

Got a newbie questions that I would like to hear your opinion on. I am looking at either an Army R17, A 1911 MEU or a TM Hicapa 5.1.

Althought very different designs, the Army R17 and the 1911 are metal slides.

Any opinions or things you know or heard good or bad of these?

I have searched on the forums and read many good things about all 3. which has made my decision even harder.

If u could reply just with the pistol name and perhaps a really simple answer why, it would help me out alot.

These are the three that I can get at a good price.

They're called priorities. Get yourself some.

If you are planning on buying a TM and if you like M.E.U.
Why not just buy a TM M1911 M.E.U. ? You get the best out of the 2 world :P

Yes its plastic but you can upgrade it afterward with a metal body. I Personally love the NOVA M.E.U. kit for TM M.E.U.

That would be My buy. I have no idea on Army GBB quality. I only know they are TM compatible.

Epic-ly solid pistol.

Runs perfectly on propane

Until your sears wear out and the gun is down for months as you try to find new parts

The entire TM 1911 and 2011 line are fantastic.

the capa is the best gun out of those 3 and out of most of the gbb's out there, I'm no TM fanboy, but I have to give them respect after owning 2 of their capas.

Isn't the Army Armaments 1911 and TM 1911 pretty much the same?

Yes, the ARMY is a clone of the TM.

But there's no matching the quality and fit/finish of the TM.
