I just got this gun maybe a couple hours ago, and man am I impressed. The gun is full metal, very heavy weight(but not too much, just like the real steel), well balanced, cool looks, and I always love the two magazine deal Evike.com offers. I got this at the walk-in store, and the first impression of the gun was really good. I first noticed the ported slide and barrel, acting as a mock "compensation" for if it were a real 1911. This was actually very well finished and designed. The grip is ok if the player is looking for a competition firearm, but I'm looking for a rather tactical/skirmish type look and feel, so I am getting real steel Pachmayr American Legend grips. The ambidextrous safety is a problem on these particular grips, due to the fact that some modification has to be done for the grip to fit. However, the spectacular thing about all WE 1911's, is that they can all fit real steel grips. That is Definitely a plus. I have not had any problems with the mags, unlike many others who have said that their mags leak or whatever. Mine are fine. Fifteen rounds per mag is also a plus if realism is sought. The three-hole trigger is a nice touch; very good looking, and light. Everything on this 1911 that goes "click", which is the trigger and the safety, all "click" extremely affirmatively. The ambidextrous safety is never stiff, works very well. But, as for all WE guns, the slide has a BIT of a wobble to it. It isn't visible at all, but you can here it slightly if you shake the gun. But who would do that? It personally doesn't bother me. BUY THIS GUN!
