Default WE 1911 upgrades

I recently picked up a we 1911 5.1 single stack. I'm thinking of putting in

TBB:
Evike.com Airsoft Guns - Internal Parts | Evike.com Airsoft Guns - Inner Barrels | Evike.com Airsoft Guns - JBU barrels | Evike.com Airsoft Guns - JBU Tight Bore Teflon Coated Aluminum 6.01mm TM/WE Pistol Barrel (112.35 mm) |
Rocket Valve:
Evike.com Airsoft Guns - Gas Gun Parts | Evike.com Airsoft Guns - Tokyo Marui Pistol Parts | Evike.com Airsoft Guns - Element Power Up Rocket Valve for TM / KJW / WE Hi-CAPA / 1911 Series Airsoft GBB |
Spring set:
Evike.com Airsoft Guns - Gas Gun Parts | Evike.com Airsoft Guns - Tokyo Marui Pistol Parts | Evike.com Airsoft Guns - Matrix Enhanced Recoil/Hammer Spring Set (150%) for TM MEU .45 Airsoft Gas Blowback Series |
Air seal (that's the same as the bucking right?) :
Evike.com Airsoft Guns - Gas Gun Parts | Evike.com Airsoft Guns - Tokyo Marui Pistol Parts | Evike.com Airsoft Guns - King Arms Air Seal Chamber for Marui Pistols & VSR-10. |

if some of these parts won't work with the pistol, if you would recommend something else, if these parts would cause the pistol to break, or if you think that something is not needed please let me know.

thanks, reedfe

Good list.

Make sure to pick up one of these mugs as well.

Element Dyna Piston Head for M1911 GBB

Shipping from ehobby, the total on that part is $10, but the part will take about a 1/2 month to get there. You can install it then.

Or you could always go with the $20 expedited shipping...

Wait what. 5.1 single stack? I thought 5.1 referred to the hi-capa model...

5.1 refers to the outer barrel length, not the gun model.

Yup, the "air seal" (I have know clue why Evike named it that) is the hop-up bucking. Oh and stiffer recoil springs actually reduce the felt recoil (absorbs more energy) FYI...

All those parts will be A-ok in your WE, If I were you, I'd pick up a new loading nozzle and blowback chamber.

alright for piston head, could i use this?
Evike.com Airsoft Guns - Gas Gun Parts | Evike.com Airsoft Guns - KJW Parts | Evike.com Airsoft Guns - WE Stainless Piston Head for TM / CQB Master / WE / KJW Hi-Capa Series Airsoft Gas Blowback Pistol |
and for loading nozzle how about this?
Evike.com Airsoft Guns - Gas Gun Parts | Evike.com Airsoft Guns - Tokyo Marui Pistol Parts | Evike.com Airsoft Guns - Matrix / Energy Enhanced Nozzle for TM / WE / KJW Hi-Capa & 1911 Airsoft GBB Series |

what are the advantages of getting a new loading nozzle and piston head? (I'm really new to upgrading gas guns so I just want to learn what it will do)

Loading nozzle, yes. But that piston head is the same as stock and it is crap.

A different piston head will bive you much better power. IME a new blackback chamber has little effect.

Could you recommend a good piston head on evike? I'd rather order from just one place.

Thanks, reedfe

There are no good piston heads on Evike, If I were you I'd get a Guarder loading nozzle off Evike.
