"I ordered this gun because I wanted a realistic looking springer that was all metal and had a working ejection port. This gun shoots consistently but is not vertically in line with the sights, at least not with .20 gram bbs. The hopup is not adjustable. Because it shoots high I would recommend using .23/.25 gram bbs in this gun.

1. Full metal body
2. Working ejection port
3. Functioning grip safety and safety (it's on the left side so if you are left handed like me than engaging/disengaging the safety might be difficult)
4. Full metal high capacity mag (the only plastic part is at the top)
5. Working hammer
6. Easily disassembles by pushing the pin on the right side out ant then removing the slide

1. Plastic outer barrel
2. Non adjustable hopup
3. Non functioning slide lock
4. Plastic grips

"This is my first ever purchase from and I have to say, that I am very pleased with this pistol. Not only is it very heavy (which is realistic) but its also accurate, powerful, and just feels great. It weighs like a real gun which is good. Obviously not made out of crap plastic. This thing will not break, at least not for a few years. It takes standard 6mm bbs so be sure to get yourself a pack. I got the 2000 rounds one for 5 bucks.
If you are still not sure if you should buy this airsoft gun, then just stop and buy it because you wont regret it.

"Some times the bbs in the magazine does not feed into the gun but happens occasionally overall the gun is extremely realistic and heavy and shoots really far it is a really awesome gun so there is nothing to be mad about.

"I have had this gun for over 2 years and it still works great.

Magazine can hold lots of bbs instead of just only holding 12 at a time
Good close range weapon
Pretty light

"The grips are the correct chocolate brown plastic not the light almost tan pictured so that's a big plus. The slide is metal the rest if plastic. I really like it. The slide is nothing to pull back despite the other reviews I've seem, but I'm used to real ones I guess. Perfect for mounting to my PC for backup. I don't even remember it's there until I need it. Mags work great, you can store BB's in them and not wear the spring out until you pull down and load the spring so another big plus. Easy to load in general. It fires straight, not long range or anything but it shouldn't hurt anyone and it's great for close quarters. I'm really happy with it.

"This is the best you can get for $25. It is full metal like it says, and the grips are plastic. The grip safety works like it should, and the grip is quite comfortable. The only reason I gave it four and not five stars is the magazines. The bb compartment in the back is exactly 12mm wide so two bbs can get stuck, and there are some nooks inside that bbs can get stuck in. I would prefer it if the mags were a little bit better quality, even if it meant only getting one magazine with the gun. If you are looking for a cheap spring 1911 this is the one to get!

"Very Nice, Way Better Than Expected

I recently got this gun and it shoots just as well as my brothers CO2 gas blowback pistol minus a little fps. This gun also has some weight to it so thats nice. The one problem is the mag quality is pretty bad, but acceptable, and the mag makes a lot of noise because of the bbs in the compartment on the mag. This gun is also very acriet.

Very Good FPS
Acriet (Accurate)

"I have had this pistol for over 2 years now and continues to impress me.It is very accurate and reliable,also it will serve you we'll for a LONG time.However with UTG it can be a hit or miss scenario cause my pistol was flawless but friends pistol however was riddled with problems.Overall this is a great pistol if you know how to use it and if train hard enough.But you should still save up for a gas blowback.

"Great gun for just shooting targets, but not for competition. Slide is hard to pull back and sometimes doesn't lock. Otherwise its great!!

"I just got this today, so I will probably update this later to say how exactly it has worn but here goes...

The gun is, externally, really full metal. Save for the grips everything, including safety lever, hammer, and trigger, are metal. The grips are a bit darker than in the pictures, and looks really nice. Magazines are almost completely metal, the only part that isn't is the top part that holds the BBs in place. They shake around a tiny bit in the magwell, but not too bad and they do drop free. On the gun, the slide catch does not work but instead acts as the takedown pin. The hammer works, but doesn't really do anything for the gun. So far the main safety stays in place fairly well (won't turn off by accident) and allows you to keep the gun "cocked and locked." The slide has a bit of play to it OOTB, but can be bent just a bit so it works amazingly. There is a bit of takeup when pulling back the slide before the piston spring starts getting pulled back, and pulling it all the way back to "cocked" takes some effort but overall I'm nit picking...this is a really good gun even ignoring the great price. The trigger has almost no takeup, and is incredibly responsive. The gun has a very strong hop up, and I was able to get .25s to fly fairly straight. Overall it's very accurate when you know how the hop up tends to send the BBs, and it has very little horizontal spread. If you pre-cock the gun before loading a mag, you can easily load one BB without having to pull the main spring back at all, making the process faster and easier. The sights are definitely not great, but they work and you could pretty easily paint them white. It has ugly warning text on the side, but most do so it's not really specific to this gun. Upon takedown, most of the main internals are injection molded plastic, though the internals of the trigger and safety assemblies appear to be metal. It is situated such that a press check is completely possible, for those of you wondering.


very good accuracy, and can easily deal with heavier BBs (for mine, maybe other people's hop ups aren't as good)
can press check
safeties are really nice
trigger feels great
open ejection port
drop free mags (for me a pro)
working hammer
reliably feeds BBs
pretty powerful


not amazing metal
drop free mags (for some a con)
not an amazingly clean slide pull

"I received this gun the other day and have been using it since. It really is a great gun! With a decent price for a full metal gun was one of the reasons I bought this in the first place. I was thoroughly surprised at the weight when I pick it up out of its box. Here are the pros and cons ~

Pros :
Full Metal
Working Hammer
2 safeties
Metal Trigger
2 Metal Magazines

Cons :
Hard to pull back the slide
Slide lock doesn't work
Magazines can be a little stuck while feeding BBs

Overall this is a great gun. I highly recommend it.

5/5 Stars

"This pistol is horrible, I bought this and when it came to my house I was going to test it out. So I loaded it, pulled the slide back all the way which is harder to pull back than and actual gun. Then I tried to fire it, nothing came out I took the whole gun apart and is basically broke into pieces. This pistol is horrible I would not advise buying it.
