First impressions:
Heavy and realistic. This GBB felt solid in the hand and if your familiar with a 1911, you will be right at home with it's functionality. The magazine seems well built with added protection at the bottom if it ever hits the ground. Very impressed by this gun so far. Also a fantastic replica for those 1911 fanatics looking to get the same action with the real deal w/o wasting ammo at the range.

Mechanisms, parts, etc:
Smooth slide and addicting to cock. The safety switch is good, except on the right side. For the left handed shooter. That one keeps falling off while its on safe. I’m right handed so I decided to box the loose safety switch just in case I lose it for good. Rear sight is adjustable for both windage and elevation. Dis-assembly is simple. Only one bolt to deal with to access the hop up and disengage the slide. Annoying orange tip is removable. But hold on to it for legal purposes. The barrel has a bit of a play t it's not concerning. Same goes with the magazine. But it's not going to compromise the quality or the performance of the gun whatsoever.

Shooting:
Packs a punch. The action is addicting. I use propane and the mag holds more than enough gas to empty the bb's + more. Usually it takes about 7-10 sec to fill the mag. I have an extended 50 round mag on the way and I'm willing to bet it's going hold enough gas to empty the clip. Have not tried the co2 mag yet. But by the looks of things it wont disappoint. Out of the box at a 45ft target, I managed a softball size grouping with almost all 12 25g bb's tested repeated twice. It did shoot low and to the left off target buy 3 centimeters. But adjusting the hop-up and the rear sight, I was able to dial it in to hit the center of the target no problem. Just take the time to get it dialed.

Pros:
-Metal
-Great feel/heavy and realism
-Shoots hard
-Upgradable and easy to find parts
-Affordable
-Addicting

Cons:
-Paint seems to wear off easily
-Left handed safety switch comes off too easily while on safe

Conclusion:
A great buy for a collector or a gamer. For a gbb in it's class the WE HiCapa seems to deliver a great product for the right price. Best of all, it's going to be high on the fun factor using this pistol.
