"I was looking around for a good hi-capa that i could use in a few upcoming cqb games and found this. when i saw it i instantly fell in love with it. for the price of 120-130 dollars it is completely worth it i must say though i had a very small inital issue because when i shot maybe my 3rd-4th magazine (Co2) the kick from the blowback was so strong that the front sight fell off (The screw also got "Cut" in half) but to fix the issue all i did was put locktight on the screw, screwed it in further (not too far) and then used some superglue to reinforce and it works fine
Great for cqb
loud (for intemination (: "This is my second gbb pistol and I am overall very impressed with this weapon. The pistol I owned before this was the kjw 1911 A1, so I had high hopes for this weapon. I love the 1911 design, both real steel and airsoft. Although the kjw 1911 single stack design was very comfortable I disliked the low gas capacity, which at times had trouble finish firing 1 magazine. because of this I opted for the double stack mag with baisically double the amount of gas capacity.
The first thing that caught my eye was the price. I got this for sale on evike for $108 with both the C02 and green gas mag, and I also got the holy cow mag special. for very reasonable price, I brought a gun and three mags.
the gun was very comfortable to hold, it has the same grip profile as the 1911, which for those who do not know points very naturally, the shooter does not have to cock their wrist at an unnatural angle, they gust raise the gun up to their eye and the sights are right in front of the shooter. One thing that I did not like about the grip was its thickness. This is an inherent trait because it is a double stack magazine. The Trigger:
The trigger on this weapon is phenomenal, the travel is very short and has a nice, light clean break. Follow up shots with this weapon will be quick and accurate.
I really did not like the ambi safety on this weapon. While it was nice to a have an extended ambi safety, the right side safety was very loose and had significantly more travel in it than on the left side. The safety was also was very large and got in the way a lot. The safety was also a two-piece and the fit between the two pieces was not tight. I ended up switching it out with the solid one piece 1911 a1 safety from my retired gbb and I am very satisfied with it. The grip safety is very comfortable to and is very satisfying. The hammer is a commander style hammer, which adds to the cool factor, its serrations also help with cocking the weapon. The mag release is nice and big, it is easy to reach yet not to in the way where you will accidentally eject the mag. The slide lock is a basic 1911 style slide lock, itís nothing special but it works. One thing that I love about this gun is the sight. They are high enough profile that they pop out, but are not too high that they are obnoxious. The sights also have nice big white dots that allow fast target acquisition. Overall besides the safety, the ergonomics on this weapon are fantastic.
Fit and finish
If any of you have owned a KJW before, you will know the thick coat of black paint they have on their weapons. This coat is nice because it offers a good deal of protection to the weapon, however, the paint does wear and can dirty up they inside of your side. That being said, worn paint gives your weapon a nice weathered look to it.
The trigger, barrel, hammer, and recoil spring have a brushed stainless finished and has a classy two-tone look to it. The chrome brushed barrel has a wide profile and is of a bushing less design. The barrel is not threaded and has a big fat orange tip to it because of the bull barrel and the non threaded tip, you will have to get a different barrel in order to put on a muzzle device.
The lower portion of the frame is different than any 1911 I have held because the frame is metal, but the grip is completely made of a tough polymer, even the hammer spring housing. A rail is included on the metal portion on the frame if you want to put an attachment on your weapon.
My biggest complaint is that there is a huge amount of play in the slide. While this is not a real steel weapon, I would like my pistol to not sound like chattering teeth when I shake it.
The first thing that I noticed was that the C02 worked much better in the gun than the greengas/propane did. The overall performance was increase when CO2 was used(fps, accuracy, recoil, reliability). That being said once broken in, the gg/propane mags worked like a charm, the recoil on the gun was very similar to that of a .22 lr., it shoots about 300 fps on propane and abut 330-350 on c02. The gun is also very accurate out to 100 feet. The sights make for quick and easy target acquisition; paired with the natural grip angle, the gun can be as accurate as some rifles. In short, this thing handles like a in warm weather dream. Speaking of sights, the C02 has so much kick that it knocks the front sight loose when shooting. Keep an eye on the front sight, if it needs tightening KJW included an allen wrench to do so. The gun starts to fail when the temperatures drops on propane. The fps drops and the slide gets sluggish and sometimes the slide will not lock back when it is out of ammo. I got to use this in a cqb game and it performed admirably. This game was during the winter and temperature in the field were in the low 40s but the gun still was able to compete with aegs. This gun is perfect for cbq because its accuracy, fast handling, and compactness. It could be used in the field as a secondary, while it is accurate, it does not have the range of a rifle.
If you are thinking of buying this weapon, I encourage you to do so. Besides the rattily slide and two piece safety, this weapon is flawless. While you can upgrade this gun I recommend leaving it stock, the gun works. The gun is also very affordable and you can get great deals on extra magazines. "Great gun, very sturdy. Shoots great, and feels nice for someone with big hands. No complaints so far, gas magazines get through the clips no problem.
For those looking, a good holster is the blackhawk serpa concealment holster for colt1911 & clones, model number 410503 (the 03 is the size). Fits tight, but does lock in and works great. Read More Reviews Write a Review

High Sensitivity Competition Trigger Review:
This is a flawless gas blowback. It is a Airsoft constructed to perfection. Marui system with fully reinforced everything. The gun is so well built it can be powered by high pressured gas such as CO2 or propane. The only con is the Co2 magazine (optional for $10 more) has unstable wear & tear. Therefore, we highly recommend using the green gas magazine.
