Abe Lincoln may have freed all men, but Sam Colt made them equal
Colt's Manufacturing Company is a United States firearms manufacturer, founded in 1855 by Samuel Colt. It is the successor corporation to Colt's earlier firearms-making efforts since 1836. Colt is known for the engineering, production, and marketing of firearms, most especially between the 1850s and World War I, when it was a dominating force in its industry and a seminal influence on manufacturing technology. Colt's earliest designs played a major role in the popularization of the revolver and the shift away from earlier single-shot pistols. Although Samuel Colt did not invent the revolver concept, his designs resulted in the first very successful ones.The most famous Colt products include the Colt Walker, made 1847 in the facilities of Eli Whitney Jr., the Single Action Army or Peacemaker, the Colt Python, and the Colt M1911 pistol, which is currently the longest-standing military and law enforcement service handgun in the world and is still used today. Though they did not develop it, for a long time Colt was also primarily responsible for all AR-15 and M16 rifle production, as well as many derivatives of those firearms. The most successful and famous of these are numerous M16 carbines, including the Colt Commando family, and the M4 carbine.

"I've had this pistol for going on two years now and I LOVE IT. It has a satisfying weight to it and the controls are pretty comfortable. I can operate every feature both wearing and not wearing gloves. It has a very crisp blowback action that kicks about as much as a real steel .22lr handgun, which is very nice for an airsoft gun. I also bought two additional magazines and they work just as well as the one that the gun came with. If I don't do a lot of rapid shooting I can get 4+ 17rd magazines off before the CO2 cartridge runs out as long as I give the mag roughly 30 seconds of warming up in my hand after reloading it each time. If I shoot quickly, it easily holds enough gas for 2-3+ full loads. Speaking of capacity, I think that 17 rounds is just about right for a sidearm. When you compare it to the real 1911's capacity of only 7 rounds there really is a big difference. Sadly extra mags are a bit costly, but they are gas mags after all. I like that this gun is styled after the M1911A1 that the U.S. used in WWII up until the 80's, and the Colt trademarks make it great for themed matches of that time period. I have however noticed that the finish on the metal is a bit thin and is easily prone to scratching as I learned when using my first holster, a plastic one. It left some rubbing marks on the slide but this is purely cosmetic. That may still be a con for some, though. Personally, I think that the wearing adds character to the weapon. I have not tried to remove the orange tip and I do not plan to do so. I have not chrono'ed this gun but I did notice that while playing in an outdoor match it was not able to penetrate through thick brush and hit a target about 15 yards away, but shooting at a man-sized target without cover I can easily hit my mark from that distance. Realistically speaking, that's pretty much all you're probably going to be using a sidearm for anyway. The iron sights are not bad for an airsoft gun, but not the greatest at distance either, however when firing rapidly and watching the path of your bb's it looks like you're shooting a laser out of your gun. As an added bonus, this gun even field strips pretty realistically. I don't think I will ever be replacing this gun as my main sidearm, but if it ever broke for some odd reason I would buy another in a heartbeat. Overall I believe that this is a fantastic airsoft gun and it is one of if not THE BEST of the airsoft 1911's on the market. If you are looking for a durable, reliable sidearm that could also be used for themed matches or re-enactments, look no further.
-Feels very nice in the hand, pleasant weight and ease of use
-Very nice, hard kick for an airsoft gun
-CO2 lasts a decent amount of time, especially when not shooting rapidly
-Classic design with COLT TRADEMARKS good for themed matches/re-enacting
-Finish scratches easily and gives a weathered look (may not be a pro)
-Field stripping is realistic
-Additional magazines are expensive.
-Finish scratches easily and gives a weathered look (may not be a con)
-Will not punch through thick cover but it's an airsoft gun for crying out loud
-Doesn't shoot .45 ACP
In my humble opinion the pros certainly outweigh the cons, so do yourself a favor and get your hands on one of these bad boys.
"I bought this gun (used) at a local shop. This is the best pistol I have ever owned. I have had it for 2years and have NEVER had any problems with it

"This is my favorite airsoft gun of all time, it really does justice to it's real life WW2 counterpart. It has a beautiful finish, which gets a nice battle hardened look after lots of use. Since it is CO2, it requires a lot of lubricant to keep it working properly without breaking. Make sure before buying this that you have good knowledge of where to lubricate CO2 guns, not lubricating it properly will shorten it's life span significantly. It has pretty good kick, for an airsoft gun. The way the gun handles is very close to a real gun, having to rack the slide upon inserting a magazine, combined with the kick makes it a real joy to fire. I don't have a chronograph, so in terms of FPS all I can say is that it is not really felt at all if wearing jeans. Accuracy is pretty good for a handgun, but it isn't pinpoint like non-blowback co2 guns. But from my point of view, that adds to the realism. Hop-up is rather easy to adjust, but requires field stripping to do. I have not had a chance to use it in a game, but I'm quite sure it would be able to challenge other handguns quite well.
Heres a summary of the pros and cons:
-Beautiful finish that gets nice wear after a lot of use.
-Good kick for an airsoft gun
-Low enough FPS to get into most fields
-Requires a lot of care, making it not so good for newer airsofters.
