well I am Looking to buy two new guns and I was looking at the WE Baby Hicapas and was going to check out when I wondered if you could put a threaded barrel on it or if there is a better gun that is in the same price range

What is your price range, and what do you want to accomplish with them?

WE has a sordid past, and their Hi Capas are the worst ones they make. If you are looking for two compact 1911 style guns, I think the 1911 3.8 Compact is a better choice. The TM Hi Capa 4.3 trumps all.

Do you mean as standard? If you do then " Nope, sorry"
If you mean after some upgrades (valves, springs etc) then yeah sure the WE 1911s (as hkssr20det has mentioned). If it is just a shorter slide you are after then the Tm 4.3 is an exceedingly worthy choice - and you don't have to do anything to it at all.

hkssr20det- I would not have classified the TM 4.3 as a 'Compact' when it is far larger than the Glock 19.. which IS a designated compact.

True. I guess the true compact 1911s are the WE Compacts, and the TM Detonics. If the Detonics had better mag gas capacity (ie would shoot more the 14 shots a mag fill) then they would be my recommendation. True compact, good build, great gun.

Ermm.. You can blow that budget goodbye then.
Ain't going to happen for that price UNLESS you find some really good special deals with your US suppliers/retailers afaik.

Hang on.. Are the KSC Glock 19s considered 'high-powered' out of the box for you? (top fps of ~300-320fps)
I know of where to get two of them brand new.. for.. ooo. .under your budget.. Smile

I would second the Glock 19s. I actually would suggest getting two KWA Glock 19s from Poweredge USA, since they do come stock with a metal slide and outer barrel. They will take a lot of abuse.

Ya I am in love with my KWA g19. Although I shouldn't have gotten the max and just have put the spring and flow valve in myself and gotten better ones. Poweredge USA has always seemed overpriced to me. Airsoft GI has then for $10 less I think.

Well the WE Baby is only 280fps so yea those would work but can I get a link to the website you mentioned or something


And to the rest of the guys is it possible to buy threaded barrels for the KSC G19s

That makes me laugh, yeah there is, I have been looking for ever it seems like though to find one in stock. You choose several options though, the G&G outer threaded barrel which is only like $30 but almost impossible to find in stock. Shooters Design made one, but I think those where discontinued. Also Power Edge USA has a PE outer barrel. Yet it is more than the actual gun at $135.

Well it dosen't realy matter because the silencer will be the homemade one that RXRXSXRX posted so it can be either but you have the glock 19? Is it a good gun for the ammount of money that it will cost me?

Ya itís a great for the money. It has a reputation of being a great gun to start out with as well as for experienced players to tinker around with. Very solid feel, great gun all together.

From what I hear it's best to stay away from the Dragon, it's apparently the worst of WE's line of 2011s.

I'm assuming you're in the market for a 2011 styled gun?

If you're really set on that price range and all metal, then WE is probably the way to go... it's not as good as TM, but is fairly upgradeable, and in my opinion seems to be a decent place to start.

40 degrees is pushing it for any gas gun, but a WE will not work at all at that temperature.

For really low temperature I would suggest an AEP. If you just want the gun of blowback, shoot inside man. That temp is not gas gun friendly at all, but seriously do NOT buy the WE I would be surprised it even cycled once at that temp.

A TM will fair better since the slide is lighter weight.
