||Being new to the sport, I wanted something that was good, but not a wallet killer. I read many reviews on this particular M9, and liked what I saw, and at the great price for a gas blow-back, I went ahead and got two to dual wield. I also got a couple spare mags to go with them. When I got them, I have to say I was impressed. I gassed them up right away and took some trial shots. They have a great sound, little recoil, but enough to feel it, and were pretty accurate, even at greater distances I was hitting my mark almost every time. As a beginner, I must say that I was really impressed and couldn't ask for a better pistol at this point. And even later on once I play more, I think I'll still like these. A friend of mine who has been playing for a long time also really like them, and is planning on getting one for himself. Even my grandpa, who has the real thing, said that he thought they were amazing replicas and just as accurate as the a real M9. Overall, I am very pleased, and am really glad I got two!
-Great blow-back and slide sound
-1.5-2 mags worth of gas
-heavier than the real deal (kinda up to preference. I don't mind at all.)
-orange tip fell off of one of mine, but a little orange electrical tape replaced it and honestly looks better.
-No logos or etching of any kind (not that it matters really)
Final word is, having had these for almost two months now, and no major complaints other than not having played with them enough, I have to say I am very pleased! Great side arm for n00bs like me, and people who have been playing for a while. 10/10 !
