3 Customer Reviews "This is my first airsoft handgun. Right out of the box I was impressed with the weight and overall feel of the pistol. Took a while to remove the orange tip so I could put in the included threaded barrel extension. Got to use it over the weekend. Strong blowback and very accurate! I used it with propane and was overall pleased and would highly recommend it. "I have bought this gun and out of the box it looks pretty good.
-Mostly metal design
-Feels very sturdy
-Features three forms of safeties
-Uses OD Green Gas which is hard to find
-The mag that comes with it features a deep charging valve that requires an extension for proper filling.
-The gun does not come with said extension and must be purchased separately (A Matrix CNC gas can extension Metal Adapter did the job)
-Manual was partial English and Chinese, several pages of just Chinese. "I have not shot this yet but am planning on doing so. I usually work with airsoft 1911's and do custom work on them too. I'm not really a big fan of WE pistols but when I saw that Evike.com was working with WE USA, I decided to take a look at it. I ordered this pistol and took it apart and was surprised at a couple things. The first thing I noticed was that they added an extended slide release, which is really nice. Ambi safeties on airsoft 1911s always break and the one on these feel like they will break easy, but hey it does its job. The gun comes with a chrome 14mm thread adapter and has an orange tip stuck in the barrel. Now taking the gun apart, everything that should be lubed, was lubed (or on my gun at least). WE tech still has its infamous hopup and spring guide (which I really wish they'd replace with the TM style hopup housing) but the hopup is slightly different. The hop up rubber inside is different than a standard WE, using an arch design. The hopup arm is narrower to focus on one area to enhance the hopup. The barrel is a black teflon coated WE-tech 6.03 Tightbore brass barrel. The blue nozzle is a nice and sturdy one, so it won't chip or get brittle any time soon. It can take co2 if you rig up a HPA tank to your mag and feed co2 through it. The structure inside the nozzle reminds me of the reinforced red nozzle KJW has. Over all, I'm impressed WE tech but you still have a long way to go.
Hop up rubber and hop up is modified to enhance performance
Stock barrel is a teflon coated 6.03 tightbore (similar to the guarder 6.02)
Extended slide release (Wilson type for those of you who know which type)
Ed Brown type of ambi safety
Comes with an orange tip and an adapter
Came lubed where it should be lubed (may be just me if yours was not)
Reinforced Blue Nozzle
Real Steal grip screw FIT this frame (RS screws do not fit TM or KJW, unless you can take out the bushings for the screws and put RS bushings) so you can make a cheap gun look fancy (I love doing those)
Not bad for the price and the OD green looks better in person IMO
The Ed Brown ambi safety feels like it will break easily
The infamous WE-tech hopup and spring guide rod design is still in this gun
The emblems on my Pachmyr style rubberized grips were missing and were not in the package (Might be just me though, but it doesn't matter when I'm putting real Pachmyr grips on them anyways)
The hammer is crisp but is still brittle from usage (I've dry fired it a couple times, most airsoft 1911's have this issue) but that's just cosmetic wear, the important part of the hammer is pretty sturdy. Write a Review
