I've had a 1911 mkii ptpr a while. The slide shattered 2 days after I bought it and I just haven't fussed with it since. I just ordered a replacement slide from kwa but they didn't have any mkii slides. So they are sending me a mkiv slide. They said its compatible. However, I noticed that the mkii still uses a straight cut barrel and a bushing while the mkiv is conical and uses no bushing. My question is, with the mkiv slide and a mkii body and barrel, will it be compatible?

The slides are best to my knowledge compatible for all the MK models but howerver the barrels for I & II are not compatible with III & IV.  They are cut slightly different.
