You will need a threaded barrel. Yes the 5.1 will fit the 1911.

if you use a 5.1 barrel, you'd have to take out the bushing. also, I don't think anybody makes threaded barrels for the 5.1, because I know people actually put 1911 barrels in their 5.1's to run a silencer. from what I know, the best thing to do is just buy a 1911 threaded barrel.

www.evike.com has WE threaded barrels in stock. They're universal.

I looked on evike and couldn't find it.

as I said, a 5.1 outer barrel won't directly fit a 1911. the diameter of the 5.1 is larger than that of the 1911, you'd have to take out the bushing from the 1911 to fit a 5.1 outer barrel.

The best threaded barrel I've found for the WE 1911 is this one (just click on the link). It's a little pricy, but it works great. It's made for the TM 1911, but of course it's compatible with the WE 1911. The only possible drawback is that it's black, rather than stainless steel. So as long as color and price doesn't really bother you, then I would advise you to get this one. BTW, I've heard that the Hi-Capa 5.1 barrel won't work on the WE 1911 for some reason, but I'm not really sure. Haven't tried that one myself yet.

Here's the link: WE 1911 threaded barrel
