WE-Tech Full Metal Custom 1911 Knighthawk Airsoft Gas Blowback Pistol (Color: Silver)

11 Customer Reviews

"This is an amazing gun. It looks beautiful with the golf ball effect, though I supposed that I can see why some don't agree. It is a very unique design and some people don't like that.

Very accurate, wind or no wind you can hit someone easily from ~75 feet at least.
Great construction, very easy to takedown and clean
Chrisp, perfect blowback
EVERYTHING is metal besides parts that could not be metal (metal hop up, non metal nozzle)
Great weight, makes blowback more realistic
Silver doesn't scratch easily, and most of the gun is made of it

Black scratches easily, but that is as it would on any gun with black parts, however grips have not been worn down at all with my shooting gloves
Low gas cap for the mag, but it is a single stack (~1 mag for each refill)
Mags sometimes don't feed after reloading, except first shot. My advice is to only load 14 bbs, too many and the feeder gets stuck at the bottom and u have to release it.

"Another great we tech purchase.
I own 2 we m9s a black and a sword cutlass and 2 1911s and this one by far is the hardest kicking of them all. I recommend this pistol to anyone.

Beautiful finish
Really hard kick
Not to heavy

Extended slide stop doesn't look right with the classic thumb safety but not a big deal .
Mine has some back and forth barrel wobble where my in custom has no wobble in the outer barrel. Again no big deal just a tad annoying when you hear it (which isn't often)

Overall it's an amazing pistol and a great addition to your or collection/arsenal. Hope this helps. You will love it I guarantee it.

"when i bought this gun it looked amazing and felt like the real deal has a decent kick and the weight was perfect for me and its all metal except for the 1 internal piece i found and its a dark blue and it shows that the gun can take off the orange tip but you actually cant

Pros: everything

Cons: nothing really could add the feature of taking off the orange tip and putting it back on.

"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.

"I haven't fielded this gbb pistol yet but I can tell you this is an awesome gun for performance and looks
I am safe to say as a gbb pistol tech specializing in 1911 and m92 mods this is a great innovation in the airsoft community.

Aluminum lightweight slide (Weaker than stainless steel but makes up for it in 2x less weight)
***Note in airsoft slide metal doesn't really matter unless it was pot metal.. which it is not and aluminum is right on par with stainless
Recoil increase
Golfball serrations
500 rounds through it already and minimal wear
Mine came with an MEU and standard magazine
.45 ACP trademark stamped on barrel

Idk if it was just mine or the part that I ordered but I installed a full length guide rod and badbull compensator but the bushing for my guide rod didn't fit which required me to use a metal file against the gun which indicated bad machining on the inside.
Other than that I have not encountered any issues
This advertises a precision inner barrel which I've gotten in all my other we-tech pistols but this has a standard brass barrel
Megaflow internals are also advertised yet when disassembled I found minor differences and under a chrono and mag dumps noticed hardly any difference
***I can't stress enough but I was thoroughly upset that this gun is a 2-PIECE barrel and fell apart in the first day of shooting, but can nevertheless be fixed with super glue etc.

This is a great gun but the price should be back at a $100 due to the performance factor
It's a stock gun basically but worth it to be unique on the field and with friends

"Just received my silver version of the Knighthawk Custom pistol and I must say it actually looks just like the centerfire version of the real thing. It has a great looking chrome/stainless appearnce and is a really slick shooter. I'm glad I made this purchase and it will make a nice addition to my airsoft collection. Thanks, Evike.

"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.


Fulll Metal

Locking Slide

Comfortable Grips

"After using this pistol in two long games, I am happy to say that this gun works like a charm. It shoots well and is pretty durable. It has a nice kick, and the hop-up is nearly perfect right out of the box. I personally run it on green gas, and it works great.

-Nice Blowback
-Looks good
-Can take some rough handling
-Uses the common 1911 slim magazine (many of my teammates had the same mag type)
-Threaded barrel allows for mock silencers
-Adjustable rear sight
-Golf ball texture allows for good grip on grips and slide
-Has a nice weight

-Immediately after shooting you can see wear on the parts you rub on the most (safety, hammer, grip), but very lightly
-One of the safeties (slide lock) is hard to lock in the up position, but is easy to pull down (easy to turn off safety). This may be on only my gun.

Overall I think this is a nice gun. Mine definitely has a few little bugs in it, but everything can be fixed with a little time. As long as you clean it and lube it after receiving this gun, and after every game (less often after break-in), I'm sure this gun will last a long time.

"I was very surprised with how good this one is. I've had 5 of the older single stack 1911s and this one surpasses them by a long shot. The NG3 system is a huge improvement on the old one. It's not a gas saver but you can get threw an entire magazine and a couple more after and the accuracy isn't too bad. 4 out if 5 because 5 is perfect, and it's just not quite there yet.

- Note efficient than the old systems
- More accurate than the old ones
- good weight and good recoil
- looks great

- Still has a bit of slide wobble
- A bit of barrel wobble
- Spring guide rattles a good amount.

"This is a great little 1911. It is literally FULL METAL! When i first cocked it back I could really feel that it was all metal, none the less hear it was all metal! This Gun is a little wobbly at first though,but I think if you take it a part, and tighten it up then it could be a Top of the Market kind of 1911 GBB!

Full metal
Hard Kick
Good FPS for a sidearm
Good effective Range

Little Loud
Gun is a little wobbly
