Since I've never done more than installing a tightbore and a piston head I'm not confident in building it from scratch. Thanks for the advice M10,

Does anyone know a good brand of slide that I can buy that hopefully I won't need to modify?

If you are going to go all out and replace pretty much everything, you might as well spend that little more (or rather, little less since you don't spend on the base pistol) and get upgraded parts for even the things that you don't replace.
You need a base pistol for a bunch of the parts.
You've been posting a lot of really bad or just plain wrong advice lately. I would advise you to shut up if you don't know anything about the subject(s).

So as I was saying, what are the best brands for internals / slides / outer barrels / compensators / C More mounts.

Thank you

Stay away pretty much anything 5ku. You save money yes, but you end up replacing it or wasting time trying to make things fit.

Shooters design/Illusion kinetics/airsoft surgeon are top notch brands.

Buy a slide set (slide/outer barrel/comp) made by the same brand if you want great fitment out of the box.

I just had a quick look but I can only find slide sets for guns other than the hi capa. The only ones for the hi capa are 5KU (Ones that aren't 350 USD)

No one said that building a race gun will be cheap, an average race that has been upgraded quite a lot tends to be around 500 USD,

avereage slide and frame sets do cost about 350, a normal slide will cost you about 80 - 150 USD depending what u want

then you got the grip, frame, trigger, internal parts which all add up

dont bother if you dont got the cash, and as ppl have been saying, stay away from 5KU, it is for people on a budget but you might as well save your money and buy something better in the future. however in terms of the extended magwells and compensators I guess they will be alright as they are more for aesthetic looks and not for performance

I worded that sentence wrong so sorry about that. I have the money, but what I meant is that I can only find one set which is 350 usd and IMO looks like crap.

Are there any sets I can get for a 4.3 with a compensator so that it will only be like 6" long? I prefer the look of a 4.3 to a 5.1.

well, most parts are made for the 5.1 tho there should be stuff for 4.3, Redwolf has the biggest collection of parts for upgrading stuff into race guns, if u have no seen their own raceguns they make, the airsoft surgeon custom ones? that go for like 1999 USD

those are crazy, comes with real steel C-More sights too!!

but yeah majority of the custom slides and frames u find will be fore the 5.1 and not 4.3

Is airsoft surgeon a good manufacturer for things such as slides, compensators, lower frames, mag wells, cocking handles etc?

Agreed with the 5ku! I bought one of their light weight BBH, and well. It works after a bit of mods. But the internals gets loose quickly and isn't the greatest thing in the world. Pay the extra stuff and get it from Illusion. Forget the external stuff and focus on a good internal gun first.

Learning this as we speak with my build right now.

I don't think I can get stuff from Illusion as I live in New Zealand. If he ships overseas though and has a website or something where I can look at his products I'd be really interested in that.
