"Maybe buyer's remorse but I wished I had paid more to get a TM Hi-Capa as the slide on the WE Tech jams frequently. I have to hit the back of the slide forward and up to get the slide move. This seems to be a common problem for the WE. Even though I haven't used a TM I've heard good things about it. I don't think the jamming problem I'm having with the WE Tech is worth the difference in price. Especially when I play with the pistol as a primary/only weapon and not as just a sidearm.

The pistol does shoot with propane the same as it does with green gas so that's a huge plus as propane is a lot cheaper. (I used 3 cans of green gas before I even tried using propane. The jamming started with the first can of green gas and within the first 300 rounds). I've read that the TM's plastic slide needs to be replaced or will need to be replaced sooner if you use green gas/propane as the TM is designed to use lower pressure duster gas. Even factoring in the cost of a new metal slide, I think a TM would be the better choice.

I do still use green gas during the last couple of games to flush the propane smell out of the gun and mags and to make extra sure that everything is lubed.

"Went to the store in-person to see it for myself, and I was completely blown away. Having shot real-steel 1911s, everything about this gun is very accurate, down to the safety placement and overall operation. As of yet I've only put a few mags through it, and it shoots like a dream. Definitely a great buy!

"Ok, so far from what I can tell, this is a great gun. I'm not sure if Evike just updated it a little bit or what, but my gun has a logo on the grips, a black trigger, black grip safety, and no rails. I thought Evike might have just sent me a different gun, but it still can rapid fire, so I'm just not quite sure. Now, the gun

High cycle rate
Full metal
Has a nice weight
Made by We Tech
High capacity (about 31 bbs)
Feels very sturdy/solid

There is a little bit of wobble if you shake it
I would like to have higher FPS, but that probably won't happen in a pistol
