Personally, I find the differences to be minimal, at best, especially if the chassis is made of aluminum. You'll gain at most... what... 25grams at the muzzle? Although, when combined with other parts, it will help with balancing the weight over the trigger for better muzzle control. The stock Marui Hi-Capa has all the weight in the grip, because of the magazine which makes the muzzle really easy to point and move quickly due to the lack of weight up there, but it will also experience higher muzzle flip.

Steel bull barrels and a longer chassis will balance it up towards the front, which is better for practical shooting.

But like I said, the performance difference is minimal. The real reason for doing it? Because it looks bad ass.

'nuff said.


On the flip side, the reason why you don't really see that style for tactical / combat pistols is because they are harder to holster due to the large muzzle face. It's not a problem with race holsters, but if you're dealing with any type of wrap around duty holster, it may be an issue when trying to squeeze that block cut slide/frame in to many duty holsters.

Did you use that M4 before at FTF?

I remember hearing your voice asking if I was dead yet then another shot on my middle finger, hurt like a bitch.

I know there are no optics for the rifles for the next match, but are we allowing open guns for pistol?

The 4.3 looks sweet, needs that tape for the grip though...

Nope...that was a different rifle...aside from the FAL, I build a new rifle for each game...or at least it's turning out that way unintentionally.

I just got another pack of those grip tapes.... 5 tapes. Let me know if you're interested in a set. I think I only needed one or two from the set.

LOL. The black controls, the frame is a bit better finishing, and slide rack.
