Precision CNC machined from 6062 Aluminium, the Airsoft Surgeon offers some of the finest custom pieces in all of Airsoft. 6061 is a precipitation hardening aluminum alloy containing magnesium and silicon as its major alloying elements. It has good mechanical properties and is most often used in Aircraft and boat construction and car frames. It is not as strong as Steel but has slightly more forgiving flex and is lighter.
The Airsoft Surgeon takes the basic idea of race gun skeletonizing as the core principle. A process by which a pistols form has holes added and chunks removed to reduce its overall weight to allow more agile movement with it. The racegun look is very distinctive and since its heavy use in competition shooting the Airsoft IPSC circuit absorbed the idea and styling many years ago.
Far more then just function, the Airsoft Surgeon is an artist who uses the process as an opportunity to express unique style and form. The Aluminium is combined with hard wearing powder coatings to add dull, colored finishes; this offers the various parts in a variety of colors and finish options.
This style features a rounded top with flattened sides and while this looks fine on a Hi-Capa it looks better on a 1911 due to its greater similarity with the original 1911 slide. The comp holes along the side are bold but the one on top is more subtle yet accents a more sensible and logical porting for exhaust redistribution. Of course comp holes make no different on Airsoft slides but its the though that counts.
This product includes only the slide and guide rod sleeve.
