Here's my thought - I'd never tinkered with guns before so I thought this mught be a cheap way to generally learn how to mod up a gun. But if it's an overall unsatisfying experience, and I can't get it to run the way I want within a reasonably small cost, I'll just sell it and buy a Buckmark and then later on see if i can find an old Colt Ace or Walther/Colt for the 1911-22 thing.

I love the form factor on the thing, I just want it to shoot more accurately than it currently does.

Don't listen to these jerkoffs, it's a fine gun. It's not a $3000 Wilson, but it didn't cost $3000.

It's a fun little gun, especially for the money.

Actually that wasnít my advice, but based on the fact you freely give your opinion about something you have zero experience with Iím not surprised you got this wrong too.

It looks just plain beastly and the extra heft up front does help manage recoil a bit better. Plus, an angel told me that when God called JMB to heaven it was to build him a full rail 1911!

OP sorry about your problems. But this thread is a good case history and a reminder of what upgrading a weapon (pistol, rifle, bow) can become. On the bright side, you will come out with a better understanding of the GSG than the original designer. Thanks for sharing (painful projects sometimes don't make it to forums). Hope it works out well in the end.

I agree, it'll make for a good experience-builder project.

I still might get a buckmark anyway because I like those.

I'll be taking it to the range tomorrow. I made a small check-sheet of what combinations of parts will allow the gun to work and what doesn't. It'll be interesting to see what I find.

Please keep us updated as I made the mistake of purchasing the Tandemkross accurizing kit that is NOT COMPATIBLE with the CA version. The CA version has the barrel with the non removable end. The Tandemkross version replaces the end of the barrel with a new belled out end which tightens up the tolerances on a non CA barrel. I checked with American Tactical and they canít send the standard threaded barrel to CA. Although my GSG is not the most reliable plinker it really is a lot of fun especially with the Dawson Precision sights I installed.

ZR tactical will put an alignment cone on a CA barrel if you purchase their accurizing kit and send them the barrel with the receipt.

And yes, good shooting, far better than what I'm getting at 10 yards.
