"ill do a simple pros and cons list
-robust weight and construction, only plastic part are the grips and although they are thin, they feel absolutely sturdy and give an authentic 1911 look/feeling. does not feel like a $30 product, i was very impressed
- v accurate, i can hit a head sized target over and over with .20s from 40 feet away. bbs do drop off at around 65-70 feet.
-mags look and feel GREAT
-some people complain about the mags not dropping smoothly out of the gun but this does not happen to the one i received
-Metal has seams, this although that be remedied by GENTLY tightening the visible screws on the right side of the 1911. Seams are not highly noticeable, only place you can perhaps immediately notice is a miniscule split down the front sight. mind you, this does not affect target acquisition or the sight picture AT ALL.
-Magazines are not feeding well for me, the spring is rather strong and causes the bbs to double stack and not slide up the clip smoothly. this causes many misfires. i am having the best results with loading 6 - 7 bbs at a time, i usually only get one misfire this way, sometimes none. Yes, i have silicone lubed the piston, springs, chamber, magazine: the works.
Overall, i am highly satisfied. Buy one! For thirty bucks, this thing will not disappoint.
THANKS EVIKE "LIKES: the power, accuracy and heavy weight. Feels like my upscale Colt licensed Co2 1911's. This is just what I wanted in a springer. Not some lite plastic thingy. All metal even the clip is impressive. I love the feel and accuracy of this 1911. It is not like any other springer on the market. If you want a real feeling 1911 for a springer this is it.
This is my first experinance with EVIKE. It has been tops and I plan to do more biz with them. They were also a godsend when it came to replacement ears for myWEI High Cappa 1911 CO2 clips that got broken. Short of having to buy a completely new mag, EVIKE saved the day with just the ears for sale.
The overall fit and constrution: Very poor. The ad stated an annodized finish. The Chinese have a different interputation of annodizing. This is pure and simple flat black paint. It scratches so easy. The seams in the slide and frame are way to noticeable. The sight was wide enough apart to slide a 35lb. piece of paper through it.
The Clip Well and Clip: did some old fashioned Gunsmithing, filing and fitting to make the clip come out of the well. After about an hour of fitment and final polishing the clip inserted and droped out of the well beautifully. My modeler files and Dremel saved the day
Barrel Orange Extender: removed it totally. I detest these things but understand why they exist.
The Seams: used aluminum sodder to fill them and then sanded them smooth.
Finishing: totally Scotch Brite the enitre frame and slide after dissasembly. Preped the pieces for a lite powder coating in extreme flat black in my home powder coating oven. Results awesome!
Grips: trashed the plastic ones and ordered one e-bay a beautiful set of Colt oriiginal checkered Gold Cup grips. The wood tone is cococobolo (check my spelling). They slapped right in with the exception of cutting the grip
screws shorter to accomodate the thinner grips.
Overall love this springer and I thank EVIKE for selling it at such a good price. Thanks EVIKE.
A word of note to all you AirSoft warriors and competitiors out there. Do not remove the organge tip. It is there to save lives from a policemans prospective. I removed mine as my airsoft guns are used indoors or at best outside back yard. It is a private thing.
Chris - Arlington Heights IL USA "When I was considering buying this 1911, I wasn't able to find this information, so now that I'm fortunate enough to have it, here it is:
_ it DOES disassemble! Awesome! I was pleasantly surprised when I pushed on the slide-lock from the opposite side and it popped out, allowing me to disassemble the firearm: the slide comes apart from the frame, and it looks almost the same as a real gun inside: recoil spring, barrel, etc. This allowed me to oil the inner workings, which I really wanted to do (oiling / cleaning it's half the fun).
_ it has an open ejection port, which is also awesome - you can physically look in, and see the BB in the chamber. Many springers simply cover the port at all times.
_ the slide does NOT lock back - the slide lock is non-functioning, (except for allowing you to disassemble =) but hey, that's my only complaint.
_ the slide is made of two pieces; I was afraid that it might not look very nice, having a split down the middle, as someone else noted. However, it's very hard to see, and I don't mind it one bit. Can't hardly tell it's there.
_ I thought perhaps the 'innovative magazines' where a bit of a gimmick, but they really work well: beats putting in the BBs in one by one; just pull down the follower (which locks down, by the way, very nice) hold the mag sideways and shake a bit, and it's all loaded.
All the controls give a sharp, positive 'click' as you operate them; the magazine clicks into place in a very satisfying way (need to hold the mag release to put in the mag, then take pressure off the button and push the mag in the last centimeter to hear it). This is my first and probably only airsoft gun; just plinking, but I'll hold onto it and keep it clean / running for a good long time. Read More Reviews Write a Review
