"I love this 1911 made by KJW! It is well crafted and weighted pretty close to a real loaded handgun. It is very sturdy and has survived wear and tear. It has dead on accuracy and a great kick. The magazine is double stacked or staircased zig zag pattern. It efficiently uses gas. I used a single mag twice with the 25 .20 gram bb's. I have had this gun over three years now and has not failed me, effective since 2010.
Great weight feel for big hands.
Efficient gas usage
lots of shots for a pistol
Very durable for a full metal gun with special coating. FYI (Handle is a polymer)
Weight and size of handle can be an issue for some.
The mag likes to slide out fast which can be good for fast swaps, but also is prone to dropping.
The mag is also very heavy, makes up a little less than a quarter of the gun's total weight.
Learn to use safety on 1911's. Dont break it on accident.
Find the right Holster for this. The button protrudes a little far out so be careful if you feel your waist lighter while crouching and running.
Overall I love this Model! "I've had this gun for six months ( December 2011) so far it is great
full metal slide
my mag does not leak too much
accurate up to 100 feet (if shooting at cans)
easy take down
hurts like a mother flicker
wobbly barrel construction
other wise i love this gun and if you maintain it will last a long time i give it a 4.75 of 5 stars because of the barrel "i received this gun about a month ago and it was just SEXY. this gun has a hard kick and works perfectly. the only problem i have had with this gun is that when i took it apart and tried cleaning it the slide would lock when the pin wasn't in yet, also the slide would fall off when the pin was in the gun but i managed to fix and i still love this gun. Overall. its an awesome gun and i'll still give it 5 stars "this was my first sidearm and its amazing
pros: accurate, high fps, very reliable, double stack mags, only 99 $
cons: front sights can easily fall off, spare mags are expensive, hard to load mags unless you have a speed loader, "I have had this gun for about a month and is amazing! It is very accurate and full metal. I think this is a really good gun for its price. The only bad part is the slide seems slightly wobbly, but still functions how it should.
-very similar in looks and function to real 1911
-slightly wobbly slide
-magazines tend to not work unless loaded properly "This pistol looks great, shoots great, and is overall fantastic. I use propane by the way. THE ONLY PROBLEM IS: The first day I used this gun in an airsoft event it fell out of my holster and when it hit the ground the handle broke into about three pieces. Now it acts as if the safety is on constantly because I can never pull the trigger. I will be sending it back to evike soon as it is underwarranty.
Plastic Handle (brakes)
I'm rating this a 4 out of 5 because the gun is exceptional, but it broke... I'll enjoy it again when it is fixed. "ok, i just got this gun in the mail and im very impressed! The packaging is great with no damage to the gun which is pretty normal (for me) the package came with the gun, 2 magazines ( bought a 2nd one from the Holy Cow deal) and the manual, kjw booklet, mini poster, and some stuff from evike. The gun is metal where its supposed to be and a very realistic 1911 look (except for the sights but isn't a problem). It's about 2-3 lbs with the magazine. a very nice quality pistol, definitely one of my favorite pistols, no questons asked.
fps (about 350)
nice blowback action
high cap magazine
not made in china
no threaded barrel (not much of a problem)
chubby grip (i have small hands)
overall a solid 10 a very good buy!! "i love this pistol. headshots from 50ft easy. I run with green gas and propane but with it's solid construction i'm sure it could easily handle co2
-sturdy construction, has withstood being dropped on concrete numerous times
-grip feels natural
-30 round clip
-nice rail at the bottom for some extra goodies
Buy it! worth every penny. "Just got this with the 20% Labor Day Coupon along with the Holy Cow $3 Mag special. AMAZING! _The gun fits perfectly in my hand
_The Grip is very comfortable to the bare hand
_The shooter sights make it extremely easy to aim
_The magazine capacity is more than enough (30+1)
_The FPS is CQB ready (about 300 fps with .25s and Propane)
_The recoil is similar to most other blowbacks
_The accuracy is really good out of the box.
_Trigger pull is very smooth
_Built in rail
_Beautiful gun, puts my KJW m9 to shame
_Idknow how to remove the barrel (cause I'm a noob =P)
That's about it, overall a 9.5/10. Definitely worth trying out. "I have had this gun for about 6 months now. it is powerful, looks good, and can take propane which is very inexpensive. the downsides to this gun are: You NEED another mag. dont make the same mistake as me. There is a holiday special going on now to buy a Extended (51 round) Magazine for only $30. the same price as a 30 round mag. also you cannot use any gas guns in the winter (well at least in NY) the mag freezes up and discharges all the gas. This gun is reliable if you have an extra mag or two "I got this gun on i tuesday. This is my first airsoft gas blowback gun. I plan to get a gas blowback scar in the future. But anyways i just got to say this gun is aroun 370 fps, and it is AWSOME ! ! ! ! When I first opened up m,y package, i saw all the manuals, but I knew how to use the gun, so i didn't read them. Then after the manuals came the 3 cans of green gas that I ordered. Then came the gun and another spare magazine. I thought that both magazines take green gas, but it seems that THE 10$ SPARE MAGAZINE AS AN ADD ON (woops i had caps on the whole time,) takes only a 12 gram co2 cartridge. But hey thats still good, because it cost 10$ and normally it costs 35$ so you get an awsome deal right there. Anyways the blowback feeling on this gun and any other gun is so sweet!!! But if you put to much gas in the mag. then the gun will discharge a hard blow, like once I put in 6 sec. of gas and the thinmg almost out of my hand. So overall this gun is really awsome, extremely durable, worth the price, good a secondary weapon, or for CQB, and i recommend this gun to anyone out there who loves airsoft, and is extremely ressponcible with this kind of guns. SAo thankyou evike, and you guys are as always the best of the best when it comes to airsoft and real military surplus. THANKYOU!!!!!!!!! "It's a great gun, heavy and realistic. But there are some problems:
1. Both the one I tested at the Evike store and my own shoot high
2. The safety is extremely stiff at times
3. mine came with a broken right safety (it hangs loosely and wont engage).
4. No de-cocking. Not even by easing the hammer forward (that leads to half cock). the only way to de-cock is blank fire the gun, which I don't like to do Displaying
