"I bought this gun about a year ago and I am writing this review now because I remembered that I own one. Out of the box; it comes with a black handgun carry bag with a socomgear.com logo embroidered in red lettering. It also came with one spare magazine and a duo tone 1911. The 1911 has a black metal slide with the Novak NeXt logo on the left side and the Novak NeXt Cal .45 ACP logo on the right. The sights are 3 point tactical mil spec, but non adjustable. The silver frame is also metal and has the Parkersburg, WV USA logo with the Made in Taiwan Socomgear.com logo on the right side. the hand grips are plastic but texturized and comes with Novak medallions. The frame also has a skeletonized hammer and a beaver tail grip safety. My first impression with the gun was that I noticed a lot of wobble between the slide and frame. Upon my first attempt to load BBs into the magazine, the follower spring popped out of the load port located on the bottom of magazine. I also had an issue with the gas feed port, The magazine came with a bumper on the bottom and required a gas can nozzle extension to reach the gas port. I haven't even fired this gun yet and my magazine is already broke. After ordering a new mag follower spring and a bumperless gas port, I was able to use my 1911. The recoil was nice and crisp, accuracy with .25 BBs was average compared to my Tokyo Marui M1911A1. The major problem I had was with slide catch. At random times, the slide catch would lock the slide back even when I still had ammo in my magazine. Even after I empty my magazine, the slide would not lock back a majority of the time. When I went to continue test firing the 1911; I noticed the piece of metal that connects the slide with the slide catch is bent and hanging outward. when I tried to push the piece of metal back in; the whole piece of metal just popped off. So now I have a 1911 slide that will never lock back on empty and the slide catch will pop out of the gun after 2-3 shots.

Pros:
metal slide and frame
good recoil
duo tone color
gun bag included

Cons:
Magazine issues
slide and frame wobble
slide metal breaks too easily
slide catch randomly locks
not worth the amount I paid due to poor QC.

I would not recommend this gun, unless you want for a $150 paper weight that comes with a bag.

"A great green gas pistol. I used it in battle and worked great. My only complaint is sometimes if you fire too fast the piston pushes up the air reducer and you just have to push it back. It has only happened to me once or twice. You just need to spray all the moving pieces with silicon oil and the gun will run smooth.

"okay well all around this gun is bamf but let me get to the pros and cons. However ive chosen to leave "heavy" out of the pros and cons fr this reason, the gun is HEAVY but for a grown person or even a teenager its not a big deal, but if youre buying this for a child, i suggest you look elsewhere.

Pros:

Fulll Metal

Locking Slide

Comfortable Grips

Novak Night Sights

Cons:

NONE :D
