When I was considering buying this 1911, I wasn't able to find this information, so now that I'm fortunate enough to have it, here it is:
_ it DOES disassemble! Awesome! I was pleasantly surprised when I pushed on the slide-lock from the opposite side and it popped out, allowing me to disassemble the firearm: the slide comes apart from the frame, and it looks almost the same as a real gun inside: recoil spring, barrel, etc. This allowed me to oil the inner workings, which I really wanted to do (oiling / cleaning it's half the fun).
_ it has an open ejection port, which is also awesome - you can physically look in, and see the BB in the chamber. Many springers simply cover the port at all times.
_ the slide does NOT lock back - the slide lock is non-functioning, (except for allowing you to disassemble =) but hey, that's my only complaint.
_ the slide is made of two pieces; I was afraid that it might not look very nice, having a split down the middle, as someone else noted. However, it's very hard to see, and I don't mind it one bit. Can't hardly tell it's there.
_ I thought perhaps the 'innovative magazines' where a bit of a gimmick, but they really work well: beats putting in the BBs in one by one; just pull down the follower (which locks down, by the way, very nice) hold the mag sideways and shake a bit, and it's all loaded.
All the controls give a sharp, positive 'click' as you operate them; the magazine clicks into place in a very satisfying way (need to hold the mag release to put in the mag, then take pressure off the button and push the mag in the last centimeter to hear it). This is my first and probably only airsoft gun; just plinking, but I'll hold onto it and keep it clean / running for a good long time.
