"i got one of these about 4 years ago back when they were $65. even now, it's very much worth it. very solid construction, very snappy blowback. the stock trigger is super nice.
now, i do have some gripes.
the mags are standard single stack style 1911 mags, and they have extremely low gas capacity. chances are that you'll run out of gas before finishing off a mag. that and they leak like nothing else.
the loading nozzle for some reason breaks super easily. the only place that i've found the replacement nozzle is here at evike, but it's been out of stock for literal years, so my poor pistol is unusable until i replace the nozzle. just be aware that it doesn't have the greatest aftermarket support.
while this is a great pistol, i've since switched to a hi capa due to the aftermarket support, the massive gas capacity in the mags, and the huge ammo capacity for each mag. although this pistol is just a part of my collection now, it saw some great action and it has a special place in my heart.
if you're thinking about getting this, it's a great little pistol, and super fun for concealment. just be aware of the mag and spare parts issue.

"I purchased this gun last year to use as a sidearm

forward a year and I have upgraded it and use it as my main gun

it is heavy, robust, accurate, powerful if used properly, and very compatible with aftermarket 1911 parts.

the one thing I had a problem with initially was poor gas efficiency, an easy way to fix this is to wrap a little bit of electrical tape around the base of the mag as it makes sure the rubber o ring at the top of the mag makes good contact with the receiver. a more permanent fix is to get a longer barrel since it helps put backpressure into the slide. also makes the gun a little more snappy.

I also found that it works best with .25 gram bbs

highly recommend this pistol as a secondary.

"I'm a professional firearms instructor who uses airsoft guns to teach basic and advanced firearms skills, and I found this device to be excellent for those uses. It's a sturdy, gun with extremely fine accuracy for a compact gun, and because it's an exact replica of the 'real steel' gun that I carry?... it's an ideal training weapon for me, and for anyone who carries a compact, 1911 style firearm and wishes to have a training gun that 'mimics' the look, feel, and operation of that firearm.

"Man what a cool pistol. Build quality is solid and the silver finish looks amazing. It feels great in the hand and points very nicely too. My hands are on the large size but I have little problem getting my whole hand on the shortened grip. Performance wise it’s ok. I found it shot best with .20’s. If anything it’s slightly underpowered, but that can be overlooked as the rest of the pistol more than makes up for it. All and all this is well worth the price for this slick lil pistol if you ask me.

"Just got this. Good quality. Good range and fairly accurate for a compact. Looks to be an almost exact TM detonics clone. Perfect size for a back pocket, leg holster, or mag pouch. The grip may be uncomfortable to some, but the reduced profile makes it very easy to carry. I jave had full size pistols that dont perform as well. This will take care of you of you take care of it.

The slide is a little different internally than a full size TM 1911, just FYI neither the slide or frame will fit with the full size without modification. Good initial impression of build quality. Very tight. If anything there may be fitment issues that are tight amd need sanding. Seems like it may last. Not the greateat upgrade parts selection, but it has alot of potential for the price. Little things like a tightbore, and some sear and trigger work woukd make an outstanding difference. Overall im very happy with it so far. I think it will field well and be as reliable as any other TM copied 1911.

"Is a very good buy especially at the sale price of 65.00. I liked the gun so well I bought a second. Does have low gas storage I was able to get only one magazine to 1. 5 magazine per fill. Great copy of one of the first compact 1911"s ever made. be careful it is easy to overfill and can blow the gas seal. Was very accurate at my 15 foot indoor range. I do suggest buying several spare magazines due to gas storage.

"These work fine alright. Easy to fit real wood grips on as well, if you know woodwork that is. Just buy regular ones and cut them short, taper off the cut, drill a hole and you're good to go.

The internals are all TM compatible, since its a TM-clone, which means replacement parts exists. The Nozzle are special for just this model thou, but as i said, It's a TM-clone, spare parts exists.

Buy it. Its cool.

"Works great! This is probably the most compact 1911 you can find and the amazing thing is that it takes full size mags!

"Absolutely a hell of a deal. i own a kwa 1911 so this pistol feels right at home for me. perfect for indoor cqc due to the fact its fps is perfectly rated for Indoor use.wish it came with more than on mag.

"This pistol is simply amazing. At first I was turned off by the looks, because the pictures don't do it justice. I recently ordered the Evike Box of Awesomeness and I got this pistol, so worth the money! This pistol is a lazer beam, so accurate and shoots so far! The gun is built very nicely, and has an amazing weight for such a small gun. The hop up on this pistol is by far the best I have ever encountered on a pistol.

Pros:
Weight
Finish
accuracy and range
quality
size

Cons:
Doesn't hold a lot of gas, so you will have to gas each mag fully after every dump

I highly recommend this pistol, especially for the price.
by Austin W. on 11/10/2016
"I love this gun!

Pros:
Smaller-sized, made for close-quarters and indoors, and fires very well. The mag is double-stacked, which works well with the smaller mag size.

Cons:
Smaller-sized on the grip. If you have larger hands, you might have trouble keeping your whole hand on the gun. Also, everything about the gun is a little harder than I expected.

Essentially a great compact pistol if you're looking into getting a 1911,

Enjoy!

"This is a great pistol that packs a punch for the price! With its full metal construction, its feel like a reliable backup, or even a secondary! Only thing is I wish it had a threaded barrel. All in all, amazing pistol that surprised me for the price!
