Seeing over 100 years of service, John Browning's self-loading semi-automatic pistol design is arguably the most popular sidearm amongst Military, Law Enforcement, and Civilian circles. There is good reason why the 1911 is the longest running Military sidearm in the world; even today some of Americas most elite fighting units still choose to carry the venerable 1911 by their side. Its simple design made the sidearm easy to use and maintain making it a very rugged and reliable weapon. The success of the weapon has prompted many firearms manufacturers to borrow from the 1911 design; to this day the 1911 is still widely used as a benchmark when comparing sidearms.
The Armorer Works "MOLON LABE" 1911A1 pays homage to the classic USGI sidearm. The replica pistol features a beautiful imitation patina finish and weathering to resemble the battle hardened appearance of a service weapon that has been through many battles. The classic expression of defiance ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ (molṑn lab) and kill tallies are boldly carved into the slide to show surrender is not an option and taking this weapon will come at great cost.

"This is a beautiful weapon system. Mine came with a threaded outer barrel and the adapter so you can use any mock suppressor. The weathering is beautiful and is even on the mag itself.
The firing of the gun is crisp and sharp. It feels very sturdy and has a nice weight to it.
Very nice gun for a very good price
"Just got mine last week and I have to say, this is an Amazing pistol! Compare to the Bo-Dynamic version which is hundreds of dollars more, this one looks awesome for under $100!
From my initial inspection, everything is compatible with the WE-Tech system, not Marui. Which is a good thing because spare parts are widely available. But, I can see the nozzle, magazine, and everything seem to be much more reinforced and so this gun performs way better than my WE 1911. (I have two, the Kimber and the standard government version). The kick seems to be more crisp, overall the gun feels much nicer.
It's fairly accurate, the blowback is crisp, and it's just fun to shoot! My only issue is with the magazine that comes with it. I ordered some WE single stacks, and they performed much better. The stock mag won't fill all the way with gas, so I have to load it with 10 BBs instead of 15 To make it work properly. And no, I didn't fill it wrong. I filled it the exact same way I filled the WEs, and those will fire two full clips on a single fill.
Otherwise, great gun!
