i think that kwa should make some upgrade parts for the 1911 ptp series such as tritium night sights and extended magazines (50 rounds?)

Ive heard the extended mag request before, but like I think I remember myself saying before, probably not happening. If you're interested in night sights, you could try this stuff.

Upgrade parts include buying new grips, switching safeties from Mk 1/2 series to 3/4 or vice versa, painting or replacing sights, acquiring a metal outer barrel from the KWA pro shop, etc... At least those are the parts I'd consider. A 50 round mag seems nearly impossible because it has to be single stack. I'd see a 22-25 round single stack extended mag and that would be more of a possibility. But we don't know if it is happening though... :(

Nope. It does not.

I'm sure you guys have had much more experience with the barrels than I do, but somewhere I read that KWA advertises them with the condition that it may eventually cause damage to NS2 components and shorten the lifespan of the gun...?

True, not sure if that has played out though in my expiriance.  I have blown thousands of rounds through my MKIV with no ill effects to date.

I think I remember seeing that as well but I have shot over 1k rounds through it since the swap and no signs of unusual wear patterns. It's still running like a champ!

That's good to hear. I'm considering picking up a MK 2 soon and a metal barrel would definitely be a cool upgrade... is there any noticeable difference in recoil/ blowback action between having the lighter, plastic barrel versus the metal one?

I have not noticed any changes with the metal barrel. It operates as smooth as it did with polymer barrel.
