Smile TM 1911 vs WE-TECH 1911

Sup guys! I would just like to know your opinions which one is better,

The TM 1911(ABS Built) or the WE-TECH 1911(All Metal) (Both the old kind of 1911's WWII models)!

Thanks!

Hm, I could write a whole book on this, or just point you to this link: http://www.arniesairsoft.co.uk/forum...pic=79463&st=0

In short, if you've got a lot of money to spend and/or don't care about full metal body right off the bat, go with a TM1911. If you're on a tight budget and/or want a full metal body ASAP, go with the WE1911. It's worth noting that WE involves a higher rate of lemons, but you take the good and the bad when buying a WE.

TM > WE hands down

When you run a plastic slide on propane for a good 6+ months on a TM gun u'll understand why.

Personally, I'd suggest the WA 1911A1. It's built like a russian tank, and only costs $235CAD.

No, I believe he means TM > WE as in TM is greater than WE because as far as results show for the newer version TM GBB's (including the 1911 altho less info because its new) you don't need full metal in order to run propane reliably. And with TM you're getting better quality control and fit/finish.

Wow, so the TM 1911's run propane out of box reliably? I didn't know that when I bought mine, but ill be that much happier when it gets here.

I know TM makes good stuff and I look forward to trickin this out (although my back account cowers in fear), but thats the life we choose to live

peace

They're very similar to the Hicapas, which are extremely reliable on propane. However, the 1911 is a newer design, and is narrower, so the sidewalls on the slide etc are a bit thinner. I think basically at this point there isn't evidence to show whether its reliable or not, however based on the fact that it has pretty much hicapa internals, peoplel are guessing that they're quite reliable.

Worst case you play it until it breaks and then upgrade to metal slide, something most people do eventually anyway.

And you can give the community some feedback on how long it lasted

Kanyon, he's clearly implying that the metal slide is better. I don't know where you got the idea that tm's(abs) slides don't crack...

I ment what i wrote, and wrote what i ment... TM > WE
The plastic slide will survive a longer peroid on propane than a WE guns' internals will last on duster.

(maybe a little bit of an exageration)



Good thing we didnt have to get the grammer police involved in this one.

Quick question about that review. Don't flame if it's stupid, BUT... If the WA trades are quite crappily (is that a word?) put on there, would it be possible to get a metal stamp set and re-do them deeper? Considering the WA is metal. I don't know what the metal is like. Although I assume it's not top quality. And doing so might weaken the slide a bit one would think. Would that be an option?
