I'll start this one off with a few shots of a temporary build to test my Limcat slide.

Indeed. This was only a test though. I think that I'll keep the Limcat build a simple two-tone.

Springfield V12





Kimber TLE/RL II



STI Eagle Hybrid




Colt M1911A1




Those are all built from the same TM Hi Capa 5.1. Don't know what it is going to be next, but it will probably be a STI 6.0.

Here is my never seen or used Western Arms SVI Expert

hkssr20det, I like that kimber! Do you know of anyone that is still selling the WA LAPD SWAT Kimber? Every US retailer I know of either has it out of stock or completely removed from the site. Do you know why? Did they quit making them?

This is my new crazy custom Uber-Capa 5.1. See my super custom melting work on my sweet plastic slide? It's teh bestest gun everz!!1!

Just kidding. This is the new base gun for my Limcat project. Thanks to Junior for hooking me up with it.







Sorry it's not more photogenic at the moment.

She's based off a TM Hicapa 5.1. Internals are all Shooters Design.

Looks nice. It's almost identical to Juniors (It now belongs the ViciousV10) old gun.

I have always been a fan of STI's and I always liked the executive with the grey grip. It's just a nice subtle combination.

Is that a Freedom Art frame on it Kevorkian? Looks like their chrome, but I have never seen one for a 5.1.

You got it ! Freedom Art it is & they do make them for the 5.1. It is a chrome finish & they also come in black. I've seen the Gold gilded 4.3 Freedom Art frame with compensator but try & find a matching slide?

Nice group photo.

It's always fun to see peoples collections. Is the SVI built on a Freedom Art frame as well? How are they to fit. I have heard not that great but since it looks like you have done several I'd be interested to hear your views.

They shouldn't be called Freedom Art frames cause you're going to needs some (lots) of "free-time" to custom fit these babies to your new slides! I like the chrome because it is much more durable than the black one. This is not to say that the black can't take a ding, you just have to be extra careful.

To get a proper fit one must have patience & a very good metal file. This is some thing that cannot be rushed! File...fit...file...fit...file...fit...you get the message!

I've done two fit-ups and both went very well! Each slide was different when it came to how much material had to be removed for proper fit-up.

Filing and fit-up are the easy steps...you still have to take everything apart from the stock frame & transfer it all over into the new one! Don't lose anything or you won't be putting it back together, there are some tiny springs & parts that can fly out when you least expect it!

It took me about 4+ hours doing the first one - start to finish!
The next was only a couple...you'll get the hang of it sooner than you think! It can be frustrating & when this happened to me I just walked away for a bit, cleared my head & went back at it!

Word to the wise...PATIENCE, you'd better have some (if not find some) if you're looking at getting a Freedom Art frame for that Hicapa of yours!!

After hearing how much effort it takes I think that I would have to go with the SD frames even though they cost and arm and a leg. Thanks for the info.

You would rather spend $250 bucks on a SD frame as opposed to a Freedom Art which is only $90? It ain't that hard! You're not even guaranteed a perfect fit with the SD frames either!

It's not just the fitting. I like the finish on the SD frames way more and maybe the biggest benefit is getting full trades. It's almost worth it just for the trades alone.

____________________________________________________________________

I wanted to post up pictures of my STI Hybrid redone with the comp and grey frame but rather than bore everyone with pictures similar to the others I have pout up this week I thought that I'd get a bit more creative.









What I am really after is whether people think that I should keep the grey frame or not. My other upgrade to this will be a black WE grip since I hate stock Hi-Capa grips.

Cheers

Finally got around to taking a few pictures of the first phase of my Limcat. I am still working on sourcing the SD barrel to run my comp with and I have a few other surprises as well. However, I couldn't wait on pictures any longer so here goes.





These first two show the difference between the Black mag base and the custom painted mag base. I am still trying to decide which one is better and would like to gather as many opinions as possible.





Bits:

TM Hi-Capa 5.1
TM Custom Stippled and Painted Stock Grip
TM Custom Painted Mag Base Plate

KA 150% Hammer Spring

SD Enhanced Loading Nozzle
SD Valve Blacker
SD Hot Shot Magwell (Custom Painted/Polished)
SD Mag Feed Lip
SD 150% Recoil Spring
SD Fiber Optic Sight Blade
SD Extended Mag Catch (SHPD Logo)
SD Limcat Slide
SD Recoil Bushing (Silver)

9Ball Floating Valve Spring
9Ball Long Slim Slide Catch (Silver)
9Ball Thumb Safety (Silver)

Guarder Hi-Flow

Strange, I normally don't really like 2011s, nor did I like that style of paint on the Sig grip very much, but that 2011 actually looks incredible. I really like it. I like the painted mag as well.

Thanks.

It's funny, some race gun fans aren't so into the grip but others who aren't normally fans seem to like it.

I think it's because it reminds me of a tiger, and that just makes me smile. I really gotta say though, if I had a 2011, I'd want it to look just like that.
