Hello, sportsfans. Happy Friday. We made it through the week together! And what a week it was.  If I'm lucky, I'll be able to compartmentalize the memory of it way back, deep into the dark depths of my mind and never have to think of it again.  That's how good it was.  Therapy session over.

Today, I thought I'd share some photos with you, featuring the WE Hi-Capa 5.1M Gas Blowback Airsoft Pistol, which features a unique, sort-of-spaceage-futuristic design on the slide.

As some of you may know, I currently use the WE and Marui Hi-Capas exclusively as my sidearms of choice for Airsoft games because of their insane reliability and outstanding practicality. On top of all that, you can upgrade the crap out of them (literally, you can take the crap parts out and put any number of good parts in).

When I say these things are practical, I'm talking specifically about the double-stack, 30-round gas magazines.  Compare that to my true love, the Airsoft 1911s, and you'll only find those mags to take about 14-15 rounds because they are single-stack mags.  Which makes me sad because I love 1911s but they're just not great when you need a lot of pistol rounds on your person (e.g. for pistols-only games).

Textured grip to reduce slippage.  However, I prefer the WE rubberized grip, which is found on a number of their other Hi-Capa models.  It's much more comfortable.  The good news is, however, there are tons of after-market grip options that you can swap out this grip for.

Here's a shot of the unique serrations in the metal slide.

.45 ACP markings on the ejection port, so you know it's good.  To the uneducated Airsoft mind, it's just for looks.  It's actually 6mm caliber, so don't freak out.

That's pretty much it.  I do recommend, however, that because of the heavy metal slide that this gun comes with, you ought to pick up an upgraded recoil spring kit for this gun.  The gun already has a ton of kick from the weight of that slide getting blown back, but the cycle time is not as snappy as I'd prefer.  More good news: those recoil spring kits are dirt cheap but make a big difference in not only performance, but FUN FACTOR!

I hope that you don't sit on your butt this weekend.  
Get out and play some Airsoft!!!  
I will be up in Fresno, CA checking out a brand new CQB facility that looks just plain awesome.  So if you happen to be up in that area, you should come out and say hello.  Perhaps we might trade a few 6mm plastic projectiles back & forth.
