Threaded Adapter for WE HICAPA / 1911 Series Outer Barrels (Silver)
This is an OEM Factory direct drop-in replacement part. No modification required for installation. Requires a WE outer barrel with internal threads. (Works for all WE OEM pistols such as CQB master, Socom Gear, TSD, Colt and other WE Compatible models.)
"Kind of on the cheap side. But works and looks great on my WE Baby Hi Capa 3.8.
"I bought one a while back to go with my new WE-Tech Colt Mark IV (A beautiful CO2-powered monster of a GBB) so I could put a Madbull Gemtech Blackside suppressor on it for the ultimate badass look. (And later maybe an extended inner barrel!)
The problem is, this thing is-- frankly --garbage. It _should not_ be made of aluminium. The cross-section of the gun-side threads is too thin. Just the weight of my suppressor was enough to deform the threads, and all I'd been doing was indoor target shooting... Not even skirmishing! I wasn't able to unscrew it after that...and I had to tear it apart with a pair of pliers. (Yeah, the fact that the gun-side threaded section crushed and tore like a papertowel roll is pretty telling!)
If I knew what the gun-side threads were, I'd turn my own in stainless steel...but I can't get a thread gauge into the 1911 barrel! :'(
I'll admit, it looked REALLY GOOD on the end of the barrel, giving it that perfect 'tactical' look.
I suppose it'll work if you have a feather-light suppressor... But the Blackside isn't all that heavy!
Poor choice of material for the design.
Doesn't support the weight of a good suppressor, doesn't speak well to withstanding the rigors of skirmishing.
If you run an inner barrel through it, with a bushing so the inner barrel is sort of reinforcing it, I suppose you shouldn't have a problem. But having to do that to keep from breaking the thing, is sort of a negative for the product itself.
Will work on ANY WE pistol with an internally threaded barrel
Can break due to the weight of the silencer/whatever you put on it
