"Got it on black friday for 3/4 the price. Great gun with realistic action and a nice kick to it. Just clean and oil it after each use and you're golden. Used it for about 4 months until it slid it out of my cheap holster at Ironhorse 2.. also lost one mag prior.. and an extended mag, too.
It will fire all the BBs and still have some gas in the mag. There is a mode between Safe and Fire but it doesn't seem to do anything at all.
My only complaint is that the HOPUP UNIT SUCKS ***. The adjustment screw (which is located at the very core of the barrel assembly) behaves as follows:
- Max. hop: BB will take off to space after trvelling 5ft
- Min. hop: BB will take off to space after travelling 20ft
I shot a teammate in the d1ck at ironhorse and he dropped to his knee so 4/5

"So I've pistol about a year now, and I'm a bit torn on it and here's why:

Out of the box, this was an amazing gun. Beautifully made, sturdy, heavy, and comfortable. It was very smooth firing, a very light trigger and had some great accuracy for its price. The blowback was exceptional as well. That was week one.

So I took it to the field, had a great game day. Thing performed like a champ. No jams, no gas wasted, I managed all 28 or so shots without having to regas. Definitely proved itself in cqb with a great response time. Shot around 350 average FPS, which is typical for a pistol of its class but still, it seemed to carry that a good amount further than I expected.

After that day, things went downhill. So, after maybe, 4 times on the field, my first mag failed. No biggie, that happens. So I slap in the other and continue on. Next game starts, I go indoors, and fire about 5 shots and then its out of gas. I figure "I must've bot filled it up right. Hm." Slap in my third mag and go further in the building. Same thing happens. So I head back, try all my mags after a good regassing, and it still does it. 4-5 shots, and the splitters out. I replaced the o-rings thinking they were the problem. Nope. Same issue.

Now, the pistol is great. Beautiful. Worth every penny. It's the mags that get you. These mags are made horribly. The fact that I've had three break in under a year is appalling. I'd honestly suggest you buy another pistol from WE, maybe a 1911, or if you're set on an M9, maybe try KWA. These mags are the biggest downfall of this amazing gun. And I know I'm not alone in this. Multiple reviews state this.

Overall summary:

Great FPS and range for its price
Solidly built, has taken some nicks here and there and there's nothing it cosmetic damage
Accuracy is great for indoor play, outdoors the wind will take control, but it's rare to even use a pistol outdoors much.
Blowback is done right. Looks, feels, and gasses smoothly. Doesn't waste an atom of green gas.
Magazine capacity is SO good. 28 can't be beaten in my mind.
Very comfortable to hold.
Heavy, in a good way.

Magazines are horrendous
Safety doesn't engage completely, you can cycle the action almost completely even with it on.
The right side safe/fire selector fell off the slide. I'll blame my own clutsyness on that. It was 7 months in.
If your the type who doesn't lube often, this gun is a little sticky after a while. I know this cause I was broke for a while and figured lube wasn't too important.
Trigger reset spring is weak. When the slide doesn't reset the hammer after being out of ammo, it sometimes doesn't reset the trigger all the way forward. Not too big an issue, but minor details bug OCD people like me.

In the end, this pistol is worth the price, it'll serve you well and save your butt when it's on the line, but it's magazines are its absolute downfall. Beware them fellow airsofters. Hope this review helps.
