"I'm a collector and do not skirmish with my air guns, having said that I purchased the silver version and 2 additional magazines for this pistol to do a custom build and to round out my collection of 1911's.

The silver finish is simply beautiful! Not too shiny, not to dull. I've also installed genuine Pachmayr Signature grips, a genuine Wilson Combat Skeleton trigger, a Bull-type bushing-less barrel , and finally a beaver-tail type grip safety. Yes, I put a lot of extra time, effort, and a few dollars into mine and I couldn't be happier with it.

As for gas consumption.. I live in Socal so cold weather really doesn't effect me.. YMMV

"I bought this as my first blowback pistol. I've always loved the 1911 look and feel. The gun works and looks amazing the only issue I've had with it is after the first game the inner barrel seems to shift upwards awkwardly because if the blow back spring, making it catch and hard to pull back for the first. After the first chambering it does fine.
Everyone else has had problems with mags
As long as you don't over fill it will gas or drop it on the playing field then I've had no problems with them.

-What you get for price
-easy disasembly
-easy to take of orange tip and apply

- the upper reciver catches on first chamber
-other people have problem with mags (I havnt)

"Very sturdy and heavy weight! They feel great to shoot and I don't see them breaking anytime soon. I purchased two of them and four magazines for a Agent 47 loadout. I immediately replaced the standard grips which feel terrible with American Legend Pachmayr grips. (Yes they are real wood), and two faux silencers. For some reason you need to be very firm on the trigger pulls or else the slide won't cycle completely. It will fire the next bb, but will not rack the slide far enough to lock it if you're out. I have not shot more than a hundred rounds through both so it may just be a break in period for the recoil spring that I have not reached yet.

PSA: The WE magazines do not fit standard hard shell magazine holders!

-Heavy weight
-Great stainless Finish
-Average 280-300 fps on chrono
-Comes with a 14mm silencer adapter

-Full stainless magazines with or without the MEU buttpad are expensive at 20 a pop
-Gas efficiency, but it does go through a whole mag.
-Silencer adapter is WE proprietary, and is made of an extremely soft metal. I managed to bend one by hand.

NOTE: Anyone buying this gun and any GBB in particular, pre-lube them before firing, mine came almost dry!

"I purchased this weapon for competitive shooting, added the "Mad Bull Compensator" and changed out the grips for a man made pearl set. Both set the weapon off beautifully !
Been practicing with it, at 20 feet (.20 BB's) I find it quite accurate. Has good weight and balance. Action is smooth, zero issues with magazine changing and NO jamming at all. Draws smoothly, re-holsters smoothly as well.
A little flashy for the battle field, so will stick with my present sidearm. All in all a nice weapon. Only knock is I would prefer it to run off Co2 Cartridge's.

"I got this gun and it is AWESOME. It looks amazing, has a real feel to it, and kicks like a horse. One minor thing is that it scratches pretty easily. The orange type is removable, but it is INSANELY hard, but this is with all airsoft guns. I compared the gun to my friends new m92fs (airsoft) and it out looked and outperformed it in every single way. Also it is unique since it looks like the world war two variant.

extremely realistic
bungee cord loop

relatively small mag capacity (adds to realism and can be a Pro)
orange tip is hard to take off (like any other gun)

overall it is AMAZING

"i give props to this 1911 (i have real ones) this looks EXACTLY like the real ones every part is like the ww2 one bravo.

Great quality and lots of customizable parts!!

"This 1911 feels good in the hands like a real steel 1911 does. The ore he tip came off but fixed it with thread tape and it's not obeying now. I put the shark cqb flashider on it and it looks sick. Has a nice hard kick to it. Shoots at about 300-315 fps with .20.
Nice and heavy.


Hard kick
Easy to take care of

Cons none that come to mind. 10 out of 10
by Felipe F. on 09/27/2013
"Easily one of the best pistols I've ever owned and
I have owned 5 pistols so far!

Hard blowback kick. It's amazing
Full metal

Sometimes the gas valve in mag is too high for some propane adapters

Great WW2 pistol!

"This is my first gbb gun and I love it. I've been using propane with lube and it works great. If the temperature is in the 60s I get one mag with a gas fill. When it is in the 90s like it usually is here in Texas I can get two and sometimes three mags on a single sights are a little off which makes this gun hard to shoot at long range but anything within 50 ft is an easy hit.

Good one gas
Good recoil
Heavy weight
Simple to upgrade for beginners
Doesn't need any upgrades

Somewhat inaccurate

"Why do people say this gun is a gas guzzler? I got 30 shots on one full charge of green gas out of the box. Unless I completely mag dump multiple time, this gun kicks ass. The externals are good, the gun feels nice in my hand, and the internals seem ok and sturdy.

I personally have upgraded it myself and it now it shoots 40-45 shots per 15 round mag.

Here are a few things you can do: If you run propane, this gun is a lube wh*re. It needs a lot. Just make sure you clean it properly. I use both green gas and propane. Sometimes, if the guns hasn't been shot in a while, it is a good idea to run a few mags of green gas or properly lubed propane. After the 3rd mag this gun will be efficient as all hell. This other mod I found on youtube. Credit: Eagleleader15 . You can take the gas fill valve out, wrap the threads in PTFE Gas line tape. Then remove the entire charger port to access reservior. After that remove the rectangle shaped o-ring and then wrap the shallow groove in Gas Line PTFE tape again. 1-2 layers should be fine. This should assist your mag's seals. If there's too much tape, then use common sense and remove a layer.

Next thing you could do is get a better piston head, the one that this one comes with is cheap.
Finally: Install a nice tight bore. Mine has one, and I can hit people in 1-2 shots from across my 50ft indoor field.

Have a nice day! Again some of the mods are credited to some guy on youtube. His channel is eagleleader15.

"Just got this in the mail today and like with every WE pistol I've bought, I was not disappointed. The gun shoots beautifully and has a great feel to it, aside from the plastic grips. One thing I that I really love about it is that the entire gun is chrome, including the magazine. The magazine works great and in addition to it being chrome, it also has a chrome base plate rather than a black one that usually comes with chrome mags. Another thing I liked about this gun is that the orange tip was fairly easy to remove compared to other 1911s I've owned. I have a chrome Nighthawk and when compared side by side, the chrome finish on this one is a bit more dull, but it's not an extremely noticeable difference.

Great feel
Shoots great
Looks beautiful
Feels solid
Entirely chrome

Plastic grips
Incompatible with a beavertail grip safety
Fixed sights

"This thing is awesome. Haven't chronoed but with .23's bb's and hop it will go maybe 30 or 40 feet before they start to drop. I can lob them 100 feet and get kills though. Mag that it came with works great, I got the holy cow deal for a free one or 2 bucks or whatever and it also works great, except that it has a fat butt plate so you have to get the can extension thing. Smooth slide as long as you keep it clean and greased (definately buy silicone oil or that grease/teflon package they have. To get the orange tip off just soak it in boiling water like normal. Twist counter clockwise looking from the front. Chrome isn't ridiculously chromy, it will still give away your position, though. Perfect amount of cool factor

Good weight
Mag slides right out
No misfeeds/ftf
Good enough fps
Highly reputable brand. The same day I got this my buddies each got an elite force 1911, one of them a trigger connector or something broke and before that they would both lock back randomly as if out of ammunition.

Price of mags
The slide on mine barely tilted left and right, not enough to affect accuracy it seems. Better than too much friction I suppose
None to affect you not buying this

Buy this

"its great its a 1911 what more do you have to say. this is great for any job you give it. it puts targets down. the paint on mine slowly came off but it not noticeable. and its goes with every type of loadout Vietnam to today. you cant go bad with with a side arm and in my opinion this is the one
by William B. on 11/19/2012
"I love this handgun by far my favorite I've had this gun for a while and it has yet to malfunction

Full metal
Hits hard
Nice kick
Very accurate to about 70 ft
15 rounds per mag( I like it more realistic)
Cheap (and works just as well as my kwa m93r)
Looks awesome

Except for some people not liking smaller magazine size nothing

Love this gun and would buy it again for $90 any day I recommend this gun to those who are just starting on a budget or the more experienced players
by Michael S. on 04/28/2012
"I knew this gun was amazing right when I opened the box. Its heavy, shiny and feels very real. Its full metal with a brown plastic handgrip. It shoots really hard and is very accurate with a very good range for a pistol. I use propane and it seems to conserve gas very well giving me about 2 mags with a 5 second charge.

real feel
has a nice kick
great range, accuracy, and fps
good on gas

outer barrel is a little loose
sometimes the trigger doesnt respond well

Overall its a great gun and I highly recomend it
