"SHORT AND SWEET: This APS Gas BB Pistol itself is absolutely amazing, the blow back is great and with the mag in... it's heavy and feels absolutely realistic and looks the part aswell!
Con: Everything about its c02 System!
-brass breaks with any bit of strength
-is an absolute pain to refill the canister.
Overview: Great gun that feels amazing but was quickly ruined but its horrible mag design and lack of variety in mag choices.
Side Note: Both my brass pieces in my mags broke the 1st day from over tightening them, at that point i had no knowledge that it was that sensitive.... I know now. "Ive had this gun for about 6-7 months now and I bought and extra mag with it so I had 3 magazines. but the gun overall is pretty good but not the best for Co2 because the mags leak alot and they dont last very long.
-Hard Kick, probably the most kick on the market (could be a con)
-Night Sights, there not fiberoptic but they glow in the dark after youve been outside and go inside
-double stacked, 23rnds is awesome
-comes with an extra mag
-easy to take apart
-Its pretty heavy (could be a con)
-Locks back when its out
-it has a bottom rail
-Its pretty accurate with your hopup adjusted perfectly
-The closest looking gun to a glock on Evike
-Comes in a nice case
-1 Co2 cartrage lasts 1 and a half mags
-Mags are hard to load sometimes (depends on if your wearing gloves)
-cant fire to fast or it will run out of gas quicker
-Orange tip is hard to remove (buy a metal barrel without the tip)
-Its not threaded
-Hop up adjusting is difficult
-once a bb is in the chamber you cant get it out unless you poke it out
To be honest if you have the money to buy an ef 1911 or a Hi-capa, then dont buy this unless you like the kick of a gbb because the Co2 leakage and the ammount of Co2 permag isnt alot. This is an OK beginers gun but so is the ef1911. I would recomend this to those who only need there pistol as a sidearm and only in cases that your primary fails, dont use this as a primary. 4/5 stars just because I like it for the looks, capacity and kick. "This is a good starter gun, and is a beauty to shoot for the first few months. I bought this as my first GBB about 2 years ago, and upon receiving it it worked like a dream. If you can get past the odd CO2 installation, you get nice hard kickback, excellent accuracy, and a nice large mag capacity. Brought this to my first cqb game and got a lot of interested folks coming over to try shooting it. However, this gun was a gas hog. I could barely fit two mags through one canister, and am now sitting over two 50 boxes of CO2. And the best part being, they're completely useless because this gun broke down, hard.
About a year after playing with the gun, both on a cqb and plinking in my backyard, it began to have a lot of problems, mostly from the trigger mechanism. I had leaky mags, the slide began grinding on the outer barrel, exposing the metal under the paint, and multiple cycling issues. The worst (and final) problem was with the trigger mechanism. The gas striker began to grind up on its metal casing, causing it to not move as freely, which in turn shredded the metal on the slide. After buying a new blowback housing, I continued to have the problem and now, a small peice inside the trigger mechanism itself has shred to the point where I can no longer lock down the hammer. This would not be much of a problem for me if APS had replacement parts up for sale, but after a couple months of searching, I've come up empty handed. So, if you're looking for a cheap starter pistol that'll last you a year until you get more into the game, this gun is perfect. If you're looking for use in the long-run, take your money far far away from APS.
On the bright side, it's the best $120 paperweight on the market! Read More Reviews Write a Review

APS ACP Full Metal CO2 Powered Airsoft GBB Gas Blowback Pistol with Extra Magazine - Dark Earth
The new and improved APS ACP follows the same design direction as the previous ACP to bring you a high quality, high performance pistol at competitive pricing. Powered by .12g Co2 cartridges, the ACP offers a crisp and powerful blow back action with superb accuracy thanks in part to the improved compression from the patented APS Co2 system.
Some of the changes made to the pistol from popular request include replacing the blaze orange outer barrel with a matte black outer barrel. Issues with early models and difficult to insert Co2 cartridges have been addressed and now all pistols come with a magazine tool for easy loading of Co2 cartridges.
A stabilizer has been added to the barrel to further secure the barrel and dampen vibration. The additional stabilizer greatly improves consistency of BB groupings on target.
For improved durability of the pistol, a special polymer used in the manufacturing of real polymer framed handguns has been utilized to mold the frame of the ACP. This makes for a very robust and realistic feeling replica.
Features: Full Metal Slide and Blowback Assembly High Strength Polymer Frame and Outer Barrel 20mm Underside Accessory Rail great for Lights and Lasers Integrated On-trigger Push-button Safety Includes Extra Magazine Realistic Blowback Action Dimensions:
205mm x 155mm
300~330 FPS (Measured w/ 0.20g BBs and CO2)
12gram CO2 Cartridge (not included)
Gun, 2 Magazines
*GBB 101: It is a good idea to let your magazine return to regular temperature before
using it again for optimized performance. We recommend spare magazines for best performance on all GBB's.
