||I bought the gun in April this year, type B without a rail, but I haven't used it in too many games. The ones I have, it has performed well. Durability wise, I would prefer something like a TM or a KWC but for the price, it's unbeatable! I've seen most airsoft P226's and, as many others have said, though the others perform better and are more durable and have trades, this one beats 'em all by looks. It looks more like the real thing then all the others. Mine came with a threaded metal orange tip which, with alot of soaking in hot water and rotating, threaded counter-clockwise off! Now it looks pretty darn real, but without trades. Very sad. Also, the grip, which should say P226, says F226, as that's what WE calls theirs. At least it's got the "9mm Para" on the ejection port.
Durability-wise, again, lacks (obviously, as it's a WE). After a few months or so, the mag has trouble feeding and you have to keep a bit of your hand on it. Not a huge problem as it already the standard two hand grip for a pistol, but one-handing is out the window unless you keep your pinky on the mag. The trigger decocker eventually got a little rough to push, but it does it's job. Now, the biggest complaint is the take down lever. It broke in half after a while of shooting. Though the take-down side still fits in, after the slide kicks a few times, it falls out. Bummer. So now I have to keep my hand slightly on the mag and my thumb on the decocker. Still, I have big hands, so it works fine for me. Maybe it was just mine.
Performance is not lacking
Looks real and better then the KJW, KWA, TM, and KWC models.
Take Down lever broke
Mag Release wears down
Hop Up fails, easy to fix
Overall, pretty good gun. durability stinks, performs well, looks and feels great. I would recommend this gun to anybody who likes the P226 but doesn't want to spend alot of money. You will not be dissapointed... too much... it's pretty good. I love the P226!
