"This gun is exactly what anyone on a budget could want for a sidearm. Here's the pro/con list you probably want:
Pros-
-Really powerful for a springer
-Super accurate (with .23g or heavier bbs)
-Has a tactical under-rail for any flashlights or lasers you want (I recommend the NcSTAR compact red laser, which is designed for pistols, but can be put on any rifle or handgun with a 20mm rail)
-Nice full-metal slide, which contributes to about 85% of the weight of the gun (when loaded with a full mag of .20g or greater bbs) but it doesn't make it too heavy
-The lower part of the gun IS plastic, but definitely a quality plastic, like the kind of plastic that Tokyo Marui would use
-The magazine release launches the magazine out smoothly
-Racking the slide sounds REALLY nice and is very satisfying
-Has a functional thumb safety that isn't too hard or too easy to flick on and off
-The hammer moves, which is really cool, although it is non-functional
-The magazine can be loaded with a speed-loader
-This gun has a hopup - 'nuff said
-Fully licensed and trademarked by Colt
-This gun only costs $25 + the cost of bbs (and attachments, but those are optional)

Cons-
-The iron-sights kind of suck since they are really short, but are right on target, so you decide if this is a con for you
-You must cock it after every shot (this is a spring gun after all), but, let's be honest- the only time you'll use this gun is when your primary has run out of ammo or you want to conserve ammo for said primary by knocking the enemy out when they get close enough, so this is honestly the least of your worries
-The magazine is plastic (except for the spring) and only holds 12 bbs
-You can't obtain spare magazines for this gun separately, so you have to own more than one of this gun to have a spare magazine(s)


All in all this gun is great for someone like me who can't afford to purchase and then keep running a gas pistol. This gun could probably also be enjoyed by more experienced airsofters who want a little bit of a challenge or want a gun for springer-only games. I would say that if you already own an AEG and want a cheap yet efficient sidearm, this is the gun you should get. The pros outweigh the cons vastly, so, if you can afford it, get this gun!

"Great Pistol! Metal sight is on point! Extremely effective around 30 feet. Extremely smooth slide!
by Reed H. on 10/20/2017
"This is the best spring pistol on the market for sure! The metal slide feels great! Very accurate. Me and my friends with gas pistols even like this thing. The only bad thing is the magazine, it only holds 12 rounds and the bbs can easily fly out. But other than that I love it. (Gotten Like 20 kills so far!)

"Great starting airsoft springer, has a fantastic feel in the hands with nothing necessary out of reach, such as the safety and mag release. The safety did pop out right out of the package and I cant re-place it due to a lack of instructions or break-down guide of the weapon so I can see where the spring and small cylindrical piece go. If you don't mind potentially losing the safety function, it is a great pistol. The charge weight is light and comfortable with the metal slide, and even springs itself back into place.

(New part \/)
The magazine included with my M1911 will drop 2 bb's down from the mag well if the magazine still has more than 2 bb's left in the magazine, which can be annoying for when I want to check my ammo left because then I have to take time to reload those two rounds, risking the spring feed firing out all the bb's in the mag all over the place, putting me out of commission for a while as I have to go and find those bb's due to a lack of extra magazines available to be purchased. My m1911 also has issues with loading in the magazines, as sometimes it will get caught on the side of the well, possible hitting the part that holds the bb's in the mag, dumping them all over the place. The metal on the barrel is also getting scratched by some part inside of the main frame of the pistol itself, and seems concerning as I don't know if it is either visual damage or actually scratching the barrel, which could potentially lead to the barrel snapping. If there is a way I can get something done about this by the manufacturer, i would be very happy. As of right now it has really affected the way I look at this pistol.
Pros-
-Great feeling slide, racks well and doesn't have a lot of weight behind it
-Slide racks self back into firing position
-High fps with a .12g bb, making it fun just for indoor target practice
-Magazine capacity is not bad for indoor firing, but seems as it would get annoying on the field.
Cons-
-Magazine dumps 2 rounds when ejected (if 2+ rounds in magazine at time of ejections)
-Hammer to hold rounds in when not in the gun is large and easy to hit when loading in magazine
-Handle squeaks, as if the plastic furniture wasn't screwed on enough (grip safety specifically, and the part just below it)
-Relatively low magazine capacity
-Hop-up can throw rounds a little too high, and since it is non-adjustable it is annoying, especially when shooting through different rooms
-Sadly no pistol slide lock, doesn't make sense to have on this gun but would be a cool feature
-Slide shuffles side to side, making adjusting the safety hard as it can get stuck on the lip of the slide.

Overall I would recommend this as a starter pistol if you have a tight budget, but make sure the one you receive actually functions right (magazine)
