Hello. My name is Sturm. I think I've been a member for some time, but due to difficulties logging on, this is my first post. Anyway, I own an Inokatsu 100th Anniversary M1911A1 pistol. I really do like it, contrary to what many people say about it. However, it does have one or two problems which, although in my case are not 'critical,' can be quite annoying nevertheless. One of these is regarding the pistol's slide stop. The slide stop always pushes itself out a bit when the gun is fired, even if fired whilst empty. It does not push itself out that much, and after going out a little bit, it will not go out any further with subsequent shots. However, I know this issue is related to the slide stop. I tested a Nova slide stop, and it has no such behaviour when installed on the pistol. The problem with the latter is that the finish on it is a medium grey (Despite being labelled as 'Steel Black') and does not fit very well with the rest of the gun (Which is Parkerised on the slide and frame, and blued on all of the small parts). So basically, I would either need to buy another slide stop that matches the blued finish of the Inokatsu piece, and also make sure it does not push out as the Inokatsu tends to do, or I could somehow fix the Inokatsu slide stop - which I do not know how to do. If anyone can give me suggestions on how I could get the default slide stop to quit loosening up and pushing out erratically, I would be very happy. The Inokatsu slide stop is a good fit - mostly. I have noticed that the move-out behaviour is not present when the slide stop is placed in the empty frame of the pistol, but with the slide and barrel and hop up and all of that stuff assembled, it starts right back up again. There is one video on YouTube that describes and demonstrates this exact problem (Although I am not sure if I'm allowed to post links). If someone could link or point out an alternative slide stop that is obviously steel, checkered, and has a dark-blued finish, that would be a good course of action as well.
Hi! My name is Sturm and I recently have registered. I am here because bloody hell I have some things going on with my pistol. Long story short, I ordered a custom TM M1911A1 Government from Hong Kong. I had it fitted by the retailer with a full Guarder metal kit, including the slide and frame, springs, and steel outer barrel. Okay. Everything was fine, lest for one thing. The outer barrel had an out of place 'jumpy' movement to it. It would wiggle around in the slide, and would specifically protrude out of the end of the gun more than normal. It took a tonne of guessing and experimenting, but eventually I believe I discovered what was causing it. For whatever reason, the Guarder chamber piece had a large amount of clearance between the top of it and the ejection port on the slide. The result of this happening was that the entire outer barrel was afforded more space than it needed, and would slide around after cocking, firing, aiming, etc. This is why the outer barrel tended to spring itself a little bit out of the end of the slide. I think part of the problem is the default Marui hop up, which is a bit stiff and obviously made for the likes of plastic outer barrels. Today, I attempted to do some 'fitting' on the hop up unit and a spare Guarder outer barrel I had handy. After I made some modifications, I reassembled the pistol, and to my shock, the pistol was jammed to hell. I could not even take the gun apart even with the slide lock out! I eventually managed to fix the jamming, but I still cannot disassemble the pistol, slide lock or not. I lubed everything, and the slide will still not budge off of the frame. I don't know why this even happened in the first place. The original jam was very strange, so misaligned that the slide stop could not even be placed back on! I fixed that part, but for whatever reason I cannot disassemble the slide from the frame. So, basically, I had a problem, and when trying to fix it, I created another one. Any advice? I would still appreciate any help I could get with the barrel/chamber fiasco as well. I accomplished nothing in my endeavours this afternoon. I just screwed things up more. When I solve this disassembly bit of SNAFU, I might buy an aftermarket hop up, either from Airsoft Surgeon or from Nova. After all of this crap, I hope one of those units will actually fix my OCD-driven nightmare. Well, if anyone got through that text wall, I would greatly appreciate any assistance you can give in regards to the two of my pistol problems.
