In Italy is severely restricted to remove the red plug but a lot of cheap plastic softair haven't it but the last 3/4 of the slide painted in red. I have three softair plus a solid cast aluminum just to keep holsters in shape and when I use them for pics the last inch of the slide is hidden putting it in the holster leaving only the rest of the gun visible. Evenc the nicest web gear pic can be spoiled with a red plug. Funny enough, years ago I bought through german ebay a plastic gun with no red at all. I'll paint slide red with wife's nail enamel.
In you case I think that long plug couldn't allow the complete insertion of the gun in the holster so I'll saw off the protruding plug until holster will accept the gun.

Nice looking gear! I recently bought a replica 1911 airsoft, all metal and looks spot on. You can even fit WWII grips on it. Cost 20. I can't afford a de-act right now, so I think they're a great second! If all you need is a holster filler too, even better!

Keep up all the good work :-)

Will

you can also buy dummy .45 ACP ammo to keep in mags on Etsy:  https://www.etsy.com...ng_id=656764734

Maybe on Amazon, too.

 

I use the above .30 M1 rounds to allow someone to practice loading my Garand

and the .45 rounds if someone wants to feel the .45 and see how it works,

same for my M1 Carbine

 

You have an airgun, but I just wouldn't carry live rounds around.

A nervous LEO is a dangerous LEO, and might confiscate the live rounds since you're 15 and then you have the hassle of recovering from the police dept.

 

FYI,  DENIX makes a wide range of non-firing beautiful repros of many many eras of firearms.

Ha! I didn't realize I was reading a 10 year old post. I got one of these M1911s a few years ago. For the price you just can't beat them for a close looking and feeling repro. I "accidentally" broke the orange thing off the bsrrel. Ooops!
