"Straight out of the box it's a pretty awesome gun. The chrome finish it's mirrored as you might expect, but it's still a killer shiny silver. Loud and fairly accurate (as well as can be expected for an airsoft pistol) with a satisfying kick. Feels solid in the hand, and the action feels a little "grainy" but sounds almost like the real thing. If you're like me and you've been spoiled by checkered front straps and beavertail safety levers then it may feel a little weird as you operate it, but everything is in it's place and functions as it should. Overall, it looks too good to be carried around in fear of scratching the finish, but this is the kind of gun you buy as a display or as a prop, not as a field gun.

-Solid construction.
-Looks [email protected]$$!
-Includes second magazine.

-To pretty to take into the field.
-"Chrome" finish isn't mirrored, but shiny enough to take away tactical implications.

"Purchased this pistol from Evike in the summer of 2009 and it has performed well, but wares down quick. The only part I've had a problem with is the magazine catch. It snapped in half when I reloaded, but couldn't find any replacement parts any where. If Evike could release this part soon, or some one could post a link, that would be great. Since the part is made out of "pot metal," welding or soldering won't do much good. HELP!

"i purchased this pistol about 6 months ago and it was the best money ive spent in a long time. the gun was very balanced but was just a tad heavier than the real steel version. very solid gun, yet filling the mag was a bit challenging. the two mags a an awesome feature. NOTE: this is the caspian version so it will come with the stupid "caspian" markings all over it. that was probably the only down turn. the colt has a small kick, though nothing compared to the real steel version. FPS was ok, coulda been stronger. during the summer DONT let anyone who sweats a lot hold this gun becuz the grip safety paint will chip away. i completely disassembled the pistol to single parts and its pretty simple. loved this gun alot. too bad my parents dont think so :( if youre a fan of plain 1911s, then this is a good quality gun!!!

"I've owned this gun for about a year now and it works just fine. The mags are leaky, but that is my fault for not warming them up to room tempature before shooting(what do you expect for a 13 year old). So, here are the pros and cons of this gun.

Hard Kick
Good FPS
Two Mags
Full Metal
High Detail

Plastic Grips
Stupid Orange Tip(I guess that can be a pro too since its the law)
No Trademarks(Its not a Tokyo Marui but still)
Well thats it i guess.....

Overall this is a very good airsoft gun. I would not recomend this for beginners. Or if your just a collector looking for a good model this is a gun for you. Overall I'll give the We-Tech M1911 a 4.5 out of five.

"This gun really deserves 4.5 stars. Very heavy and realistic feeling pistol. Unscrewable orange tip. VERY satisfying cocking sound and feel. Short trigger pull for fast ROF. Excellent hop up. Accuracy is amazing off the walls especially for a pistol. Ballin' looks. Now for the -1/2 star. Very cheap plastic grips. Magazines could be a little better (sometimes they only shoot one or 1.5 clips on one charge of gas). Gas valve is very deep in the mag making charging quite difficult. My metal (very weak metal apparrently) barrel bushing snapped after only having it for about 7 months. Other than that no other problems and I use this gun alot and have dropped it a few times.

Feels good
Easily unscrewed orange tip
Cocking is good and metalic sounding and satisfying
Short trigger pull and very capable ROF
Good hop up
AMAZING accuracy
Good looking modern or classic pistol

Cheap plastic feeling grips
Not great magazines (not too shabby though)
Very difficult to charge magazines
Metal is apparrently relatively weak (see above)

"-THIS- pistol is very realistic heavy and everything and its a great gun! Im selling mine because it never has enough gas to finish off the last bb and lock back and gets reduced power the last about 4 bbs, but if you dont put as much bbs in its not a problem.

"Excellent GBB. Hits hard and is very sturdy. A bit of a gas hog, but if it's your sidearm you shouldn't have to put too many rounds through it in any given skirmish. Gun is very true to real steel. I put Hogue rubber grips on mine, looks great. Highly recomended.

"this is not a great pistol on its own, but with a few upgrades it can match a marui 1911 without having to spend as much, plus its got a decent metal body.
by Brandon M. on 05/20/2008
"I shot my firends and it shot very hard and had a crisp recoil. One good thing about this deal is that you get two mags for the price of one. it is also full metal constructed.

"A great indoor gun that scores 3 out of 5 for it's inability to be heavily used outside. The internals are temperamental and with the tiniest bit of dust or great, the slide will lock up. And let's be honest, we're not thinking about our sidearms when we're diving for cover or crawling through ditches.

However, in indoor and CQB environments, this gun shines. It's got a solid blowback and decent gas consumption. With an extra mag thrown in, this is a deal CQB players shouldn't pass up.

"I am brand new to airsoft, though I'm not young. I read the reviews and thought this would be a solid starter (and fit all my existing RL gear). Wrong.

Fit real world gear just fine.
Had a nice heft.

Magazine leaked from the beginning.
Build quality seemed mediocre.

I sent it back and got the FN Five-Seven. No comparison.

"Based on my expierences with pistol I wouldnt recommend it to anyone. I ordered 2 extra mags with the gun - both o rings blew on those a week later and the one that came with my pistol, they're not good quality. Second, from the first week on the slide wouldnt lock back, and a mag follower has broken on one of them already. So in the end, if you want a skirmish ready pistol to start off, buy a KJW or Marui and save yourself the time and money.

"this gun looks and feels very good and heavy but i have a lot of problems with it... first off the paint sux it flakes off every where the slide chipped by the hammer randomly because of poor metal quality and the mags suk it has a 15 round cap but it will consistently only fire 8 rounds before it runs out of gas and will rarely lock back if all rounds have been fired... i have played a couple of games with it and my sniper rifle and it has let me down every time. i regret buying this piece of shit.

"This gun is awful:

It is cheap, unreliable, clingy, it has problems. Never buy WE tech, just spend the extra hundred and get a KWA

Looks ok

cant retain gas
No replacement parts
no upgrades
