I love 1911s. So when I saw this over-the-top, 11" long pistol, I knew I had to buy it. When I opened it I noticed that they used the Styrofoam from WE's "Luger" series, and there was a dent in the box. I continued to unpackage it from the box. I was really excited to shoot it, but more often than not, instead of shooting the bb, it would roll out of the barrel. This kept on happening for while, but then pulling the trigger once would make it go full auto and expel all of the gas. Instead of tinkering with it, I sent it to Evike. When it came back, it used the same Styrofoam, but in a different box, and they replaced the gun. I got it out, shot it, and bbs would roll out of the barrel. Again. I continued to shoot the gun and they now shoot more often than not.

Pros:
-It looks AWESOME!
-It is a WE Hi-CAPA.
-Has an awesome inner-barrel (the length of the outer barrel).
-Mag holds 30+1 rounds.
-Shoots true and far (when it shoots).
-The weight. It feels amazing in your hand.

Cons:
-Obviously the fact that two Hi-CAPAs in a row had the same problem means there may be a design flaw.
-On the last shot of gas the slide doesn't go all the way back.
-The WE mags aren't the best.
-the gun is long, so it hits your leg if you use a standard drop-leg holster.

Overall I think that WE could improve the inner workings, but besides that little hic-up, it is a great pistol.
P.S. Always use a "Holy Cow" special if possible.
