    I'm being offered a KJW double-stack 1911 with 1 propane mag and 1 CO2 mag for $90. He said he hasn't even used it, he got it as a gift but then lost interest in airsoft. Should I go for it?
    afaik the KJW M9s are alot better than their HiCapas. Plus the CO2 mags are garbage.

    I wouldn't be using the CO2 mag, I was just wondering since it is being offered to me. It's the one with the Tanio Koba grips or whatever they're called. If it really isn't that good, then I'll stick with the KJW M9.

    Wait, KJW 1911 or KJW HiCapa? Their Hicapas are fantastic, their 1911's have serious magazine issues.

    Apparently it is largely plastic and has bad ghosting issues. That's just what I've heard though.

    Ok, so the original seller for the KJW 1911 said he didn't want to sell it any more, but I did find another one for sale. It's seen some use, but the guy has replaced some parts with newer high quality parts. It also comes with 2 propane mags instead of 1 propane and 1 CO2. He's selling it for $75, which is a darned good deal if you ask me.

    Not a bad option, but you might want to consider getting one new. Also, you should post pictures and copy the description so we can decipher what kind of wear its been through.
    On Evike its on sale for $99 and for 3 more dollars you get another green gas magazine.

    Edited:

    Also, 19% off coupon code at Evike is: awesome
    But apparently it expires soon.
    So it would be $82.62+shipping for a brand new one with two new mgas.

    So I just acquired $50 dosh from emptying my change jar. Will pursue that path Notrabies. I'll also get a holster, a rifle sling, and a propane adapter. I'd like them all to be from Evike so I can get everything in 1 order.

    Hey guys, i have a question. What kind of M16A2 would i get the best bang for my buck on? I don't want another JG, for the love of god no, unless i went in with the distinct plan of buying two sets of upgrade parts, one for my withstanding A2 and another for the new one(it'd prolly be a new barrel and hop-up)? I was thinking a G&G M16A2 proline wouldn't be all that bad, and give me much better stock performance than my JG, so i wouldn't have to upgrade that right away. Anyways, yeah, i want a M16A2 that works well but is cheap-ish, gogogo(I'm not saying i will get it, i just need to know)

    A G&G Combat Machine would be your best choice for a cheapish option.
    However, what is your definition of cheapish?
    An unrailed G&P shouldn't cost more than a proline G&G, you'd just have to do some deans wiring.

    Belt or drop leg holster, and what rifle are you putting the sling on?

    At $230, I think this is a much better buy than a G&G Proline, and it's only $50 more than the CM M16A2

    I have those kneepads, and they're quite nice.
    Everything looks good, but I'm not a fan of 3 point slings. I'd recommend a one point for most rifles and SMGs with a proper mount for them.

    Everything looks good. That propane adapter is the best one IMO.
    About the sling though, unless you really want a 3-point sling, you can always get the job done easier/cheaper with a briefcase strap.

    Only issue is the $80ish for int. shipping. Also, its not even wired for Deans, good find.

    I have a big, heavy-duty strap from my old laptop case, I'll go check how that works.

    Well if that laptop sling doesn't work, I highly suggest a one point sling, after working with those for a bit I'm jealous of not owning one myself. You just mount the sling onto the buffer tube sling mount and it leaves your gun in an easily accessible position at all times.

    Something I did was ziptie a key ring to the buffer tube, then I could use my briefcase strap as a one-point.

    Works nicely, don't see it breaking any time soon. Might not be as comfortable as a ~1337 operator~ sling, but it saves me $20.

    Edited:

    Any recommendation on a specific holster?

    Just thought of something: gloves. Now I need THOSE and a holster. However, I was thinking I could just put the pistol in one of those big side-pockets on my 7-pocket rig for now and save up for a SERPA.

    No Hicapa will fit in a Serpa.
    A cheap holster will do you fine, just make sure its designed for 1911s or hicapas. I've had many an issue with universal holsters designed to fit glocks.

    Edited:

    Here's my Hicapa's holster: http://www.evike.com/product_info.ph...ducts_id=25140
    For gloves, are you looking for hard impact gloves or just regular gloves?

    Its drop leg, so it secures the top around a belt, and a strap goes around your leg. Mine is about midthigh on me, but you can adjust it for height. If you plan to be doing a lot of long distance walking/running, you should certainly get a belt mounted holster.
    Just be sure to look for the retaining strap being located over the handguard, not over the hammer/slide.

    Honestly I rather modify a Serpa or any other retention holster to fit a Hicapa than use a universal holster ever again. I've lost too many damn pistol mags from those things. It's worth the money to get a good holster.

    I just use an M-12 style ALICE belt mounted pistol holster. It works well for me and hasn't dropped my magazine yet. And i don't have to worry about bumping my pistol into a wall because it is pretty much protected by the holster. Only drawback to it is that it limits you drawing speed by quite a bit.
