"This is an okay pistol for the money. I bought this thing in August 2015, so it's almost a year old, and has been through 2 cqb games, and one outdoor game. I like the recoil, the controls are easy to access for the most part, surprisingly good at conserving gas, unlike what I've experienced with WE's 1911 series. Accuracy is pretty good for a pistol, not perfect, but it's not like not like you're gonna snipe anyone across the field or do 360 no-scopes with your pistol lol. M9 is one of my fav pistol models, both real steel and Airsoft, but the grips however on m9s are kinda wide due to the way they're made, and my hands are on the medium size, so I can't really get a good grip with this thing like I would a 1911 or a glock, or an Hk. That's always been my gripe with this platform. And the safety doesn't double as a decocker switch like the real steel does. KJW and KWA implemented this feature, but sadly, not WE. The metal that was used on this pistol feels kinda cheap, but hey, it's a $100 pistol, and fully upgradeable with Marui parts. My favorite $100 pistol to this day though is the WE G18. I'll never forget that pistol, and I hope it'll come back one day. With that being said, this pistol comes pretty close in terms of gas pistols. Magazines are pretty affordable as well. It makes me sad that I can't afford a stronger air nozzle for Co2 mags! Now, that's not the reason this isn't my favorite pistol. It's very good for the money, but I felt that the G series was the prime for WE pistols. That didn't stop me from trying this thing out though, it's still a great pistol with plenty of upgrades you can do. Take a look at this pistol if you want a propane/green gas blaster!
