mags for WE Hi Cappa 5.1 1911

Anybody know if the WE Hi Cappa 5.1 can take TM Hi Cappa mags?
Will they fit without problems?

Thanks!

A WE 5.1 Hicapa mag will fit into a TM 5.1 Hicapa and vice versa.

As for the 1911, I do not know...

TM 1911 mags and WE 1911 mags are not interchangeable.

There's a slight mis-alignment which keeps the mags from locking in with either pistol.

WE 5.1's are 100% TM compatible as far as I know. The mags are compatible for sure.

Question?

Do the TM mags fill better and get more shots when used with the WE Hicapa 5.1 than the WE stock magazines?

Is it worth it to switch to TM, I think the TM fill differently and you can get more gas in a TM mag?

The only thing I noticed was that the TM mags "FIT" better in the magwell of the WE and the TM Hicapa's...not as much slop so-to speak. As for gas performance & consumption they are very much equal. The TM has a better stock mag flow-valve than the WE resulting in a slightly higher f.p.s.!

I have owned a WE Dragon in the past and did some comparison with the two...TM Hicapa is the way to go!

Just a heads up, be VERY careful of the feeding lip, I've busted 2 so far. Not sure if other pistol mags have this weakness, but the lips seem to bust very easily.
