OK, just to clear things up, I know nothing about GBB's.
With that out of the way, heres my question:
Compatibility: what slides work on KWA's 1911DS PTP?
Is it TM compatibile, I dont know what the difference between a double stack or a 5.1 or whatever many 1911's there are, I would just like to know what to look for when purchasing a slide for a 191 (looking for a ncie chrome one or something along those lines).

Thanks for helping me out, 1911 looks like a nice gun with lots of possibilities like M4's.

1911DS is not TM compatible so there is no after market slide for 1911DS yet.  However, KWA sold this gun in Asia/Europe under STI Nighthawk trade mark.  You might be able to hunt down a slide oversea.

1911DS technically is a 2011 base on the SV and STI guns.  2011 are usually modular lower frame, double stack and polymer grip.  A favorite gun for the IPSC race gun (Speed shooting) circuit.  

5.1 is just a name TM give their hicapa series (2011) and base on the length of outer barrel.  

A true 1911 are usually single stack full metal frame.  Para Ordinance on the other hand does make a double stack full metal frame 1911.
