Socom Gear WE Full Metal 1911 Special Unit (Tactical Black) Airsoft Gas Blowback w/ Lanyard.
by Teague H. Date Added: April 2, 2012
This is a nice high-end 1911 I've owned for a while now and use frequently for plinking. Sadly no adjustable rear sight but you can adjust hop-up. This gun is just too nice, I mostly own it as an alternative/replica to owning a high-end real steel 1911.
Pros: Full metal almost all over in and out-very solid, realistic markings besides "Made in Taiwan,, Selm, CA" on the right side's frame-which can be filled in but are hard to see from an arm's length anyway, realistic weight and field-stripping, underside rail, ambidextrous safety, free lanyard and lanyard hook.

Cons: Paint wears off on parts sticking out such as the slide serrations and the thumb safety but the underlying metal is silver so it looks nice and field-worn if that's your thing, threaded barrel attachment is hard to take off and it cracked when I put on a suppressor and put it down a little rough on a hard surface (I ended up getting a replacement barrel which had both an orange and silver threaded barrel attachment), lanyard hook broke easily and quickly so my lanyard is unused, thumb safety gets loose quickly and jiggles.

Worth noting: The wrap-around grip is a nice rubber and a little thicker than most grips which is great since I have big hands, but makes this gun a little thicker than most 1911's. Mag capacity is definitely a bit low but hey, it's a nice replica-type more than a hi-capa field gun.

There are a lot of parts you can get for this gun since it's almost a WE-tech but noticeably nicer. I would definitely consider a Madbull tightbore extended barrel and a suppressor cause it makes this gun a higher-FPS beast + I'm sure most people would buy this just for the suppressor look anyway but that's just my thought. I'm not rating it a 5 because the threaded barrel attachment was a pain and the thumb safety's way too loose for my liking but it is what it is

Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! [4 of 5 Stars!]
