"absolutely fantastic gun. had the black model for a couple years now, and with proper maintenance, absolutely no issues. just picked up the silver model for a bit of ebony and ivory action and i must say, im absolutely happy with it. the pair takes a little getting used to for use, but with the availability of parts, the reliability of mags (regardless of what is said elsewhere, lubricate the seals, and snug up the valves and they wont leak.), and the durability of the parts that are here, these guns are a definite buy. just be aware, they have a semi-realistic weight (little light), so if weight is an issue, put in a little extra practice.
all shots are dead on target. the sights, although a little too large on the front, are very easy to use. "I've been using mine going on three years now, and I've encountered few other pistols that are the equal of this one. If you want a reliable, long-lasting, and crazy-accurate pistol, then this is the one you're looking for.
-Ridiculously accurate for a pistol (can consistently hit a human-sized target at 150 ft.)
- Approximately 360 fps when using green gas (that's really the fast you'd want for a field-legal pistol)
-Approximately 410 fps when using CO2 (for when you want to scare the living-crap out of whoever is unfortunate enough to be on the business end of this monster)
-Almost entirely constructed out of steel/aluminum (this beast will take almost any punishment and keep on shooting)
-Long-lasting internal parts (it was a year and a half before I had to replace anything, and even then, it was just the hop-up bucking as those tend to wear out the fastest)
-Relatively low-maintenance (I only need to lube/clean mine every 2-3 months)
-The one thing I'd have to say is that disassembly can be a bit tedious, as there're a number of screws and bolts that have to be removed in order to remove the meat-tenderizer attachment to allow the slide to be taken off (definitely look up a disassembly video on youtube before attempting to do so yourself).
That being said, this pistol is truly worth every penny. Once you learn how to maintain it, this pistol can be a fantastic sidearm for every airsofter from the brand-new beginner, to the well-experienced veteran. "Trust me, this gun is even more impressive up-close than it is online.
So I wanted a long-barreled pistol for 2015 airsoft games, and it came down to three guns: ASG 8-inch Dan Wesson revolver, WE 8-inch artillery Luger, and WE 7-inch Dragon. The first two options seem impractical for field use, since one shoots hotter than a sniper rifle and the other uses a drum magazine. Then, there's the Dragon; I didn't know this thing existed until October. The design reminded me of the custom handguns from Hellsing or Devil May Cry, but what really jumped out at me was the availability of compatible parts.
This particular model has a reputation for shooting in excess of 350fps, which I like. While it won't have any applications in CQB, it's a perfect pistol for medium- to long-range combat. The split slide allows the gun to shoot as fast as you can pull the trigger, so it's a great choice for dual guns. Spare magazines are affordable, and 30-, 38-, and 50-round magazines can be used with this gun.
The split slide may be lighter, but the gun itself still has strong recoil. That adds to the realism and fun of this pistol, so don't let it be a deterrent.
I'm going to order the black version ASAP. Be sure to take advantage of Evike's Holy-cow door buster. This will give you a spare 30-round magazine.
- Full metal (except for the grip)
- High rate of fire
- Loud (a con for some, but I want my presence known.)
- High rate of fire
- 350+ fps
- Standard mags hold 30 rounds. Extended mags hold 38 or 50.
- Tons of spare parts for sale on Evike.com
- Enough rail space to fit any laser sight or flashlight.
- Threaded barrel adapter included - not necessary, but still a nice extra.
- I'm pretty sure the front sight isn't really fiber optic. I'll have to look for a fiber optic cable segment to change that. Read More Reviews Write a Review
