"This pistol is absolutely fantastic. The trigger pull is great and this gun shoots FAR, for a pistol that is. It also has a rather nice fps to it, competitive to some weaker rifles. It's perfect for CQB and great for field, where I play. The mags are also very inexpensive. When you first receive this gun, you'll probably be pretty impressed. It is two tone, but in my opinion, it looks SICK. However it did not come with a threaded barrel, it's all good though, because Evike Customer Support was great and sent me one immediately.
The field stripping is kinda hard if you're trying to remove the barrel.
"Overall a very sturdy pistol, but definitely has its downsides. The external quality is fantastic, and doesnt feel cheap as I expected with a nice weight. The finish is a nice blued color on the slide, and doesnt scratch easily. The working decocker is also a plus and works as it should. Some things to keep in mind:
-The slide dimensions on the top are not the same as the RS SIG, or the KJW, TM variants, so this gun will not fit in kydex/ SERPA holsters.
-Front sights eventually loosens up, but must be glued, no screw to adjust.
-If you had a thread adapter sent seperately to you by Evike, remove the old one carefully, the barrel threads can be damaged easily.
-the Guarder spring set has some issues (fits, but the recoil spring rubs the frame where it really shouldnt, making a metal on metal scratching noise I wasnt comfortable with.)
Overall a great SIG replica at a respectable price, but could definitely use some work to be a reliable secondary.
"I bought the gun in April this year, type B without a rail, but I haven't used it in too many games. The ones I have, it has performed well. Durability wise, I would prefer something like a TM or a KWC but for the price, it's unbeatable! I've seen most airsoft P226's and, as many others have said, though the others perform better and are more durable and have trades, this one beats 'em all by looks. It looks more like the real thing then all the others. Mine came with a threaded metal orange tip which, with alot of soaking in hot water and rotating, threaded counter-clockwise off! Now it looks pretty darn real, but without trades. Very sad. Also, the grip, which should say P226, says F226, as that's what WE calls theirs. At least it's got the "9mm Para" on the ejection port.
Durability-wise, again, lacks (obviously, as it's a WE). After a few months or so, the mag has trouble feeding and you have to keep a bit of your hand on it. Not a huge problem as it already the standard two hand grip for a pistol, but one-handing is out the window unless you keep your pinky on the mag. The trigger decocker eventually got a little rough to push, but it does it's job. Now, the biggest complaint is the take down lever. It broke in half after a while of shooting. Though the take-down side still fits in, after the slide kicks a few times, it falls out. Bummer. So now I have to keep my hand slightly on the mag and my thumb on the decocker. Still, I have big hands, so it works fine for me. Maybe it was just mine.
Performance is not lacking
Looks real and better then the KJW, KWA, TM, and KWC models.
Take Down lever broke
Mag Release wears down
Hop Up fails, easy to fix
Overall, pretty good gun. durability stinks, performs well, looks and feels great. I would recommend this gun to anybody who likes the P226 but doesn't want to spend alot of money. You will not be dissapointed... too much... it's pretty good. I love the P226!
