    I have a TM FN 5-7 and I'm trying to find a metal slide for her. My understanding is Guarder is the only one that makes one but I can't find it any ware. Help!

    Nobody makes a metal slide for it, due to the real steel being polymer. You would need to have one custom machined. I'm actually saving up for that at the moment.

    The real 5-7 has a steel slide encased in a polymer shell so putting a complete aluminum slide on it wouldn't be accurate. That being said, Creation does makes a CNC aluminum inside slide for the 5-7: http://www.airsoftglobal.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=634_223&products_id=11475

    Guarder makes polycarbonate slides and frames in a variety of colors which are also sold by Airsoft Global.

    Edit*

    Didn't see it was out of stock at Airsoft Global. Tokyo Model has it in stock though: http://www.tokyo-model.com.hk/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_27&products_id=6163

    Thank you. I had seen TM 5-7's for sale with metal slides and thought it might be stronger, plus I love the feel of it.
