"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! :'(

Pros:
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!

Cons:
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.

Other thoughts:
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.

"Pros
Will work on ANY WE pistol with an internally threaded barrel
Aluminum
Looks cool

Cons
Can break due to the weight of the silencer/whatever you put on it

"Work as expected and is a must have if you want to fit any type of mock silencers on your WE pistol.

"I got this product for my WE 1911 MEU and It worked for a while but during the third game I used it in. The product broke off between the barrel and my silencer

It is made out of aluminum and is too soft for this purpose. I also think if you had a very lightweight silencer but your pistol fell out of its holster that would also cause it to break.

"does exactly what it say, gives the ability to mount cool s#!t on you pistol. unfortunately it angles whatever you screw on down just a little and mine came painted orange not silver, nothing a wire brush couldn't fix.
