There are a plethora of 2011 style competition pistols on the market. Many of them are fine competition guns, but they lack the rugged durability and dependability of a solid, reliable duty or personal defense weapon. Seeing this gap in the market, and already well known for making high performance, rugged weapon systems, Salient Arms set to work producing a double stack 1911 that could clean up at the competition range and defend your home or protect your life in the field. The end result of years of research was the Salient Arms DS 2011 pistol. Precision machined with a form follows function attitude the SAI DS was manufactured for no other purpose in mind than to fill the needs of the hardcore shooting enthusiast. Equipped with aggressive front and rear slide serrations, milled lightening cuts on both sides of the slide, and aggressive competition style sights the SAI DS clearly is a pistol designed for shooters by shooters. As with all of their products, Salient Arms rewrote the rules of 2011 style pistols when they manufactured the DS, forging a new trail and leaving old conventions behind, the end result is a pistol that functions in the harshest conditions, under the heaviest of stresses and provides service you can stake your life on.

EMG has extended their collaboration with the Salient Arms and is proud to release the Salient Arms x EMG DS 2011 collaboration Airsoft Training pistol. Manufactured with an eye to detail the EMG SAI DS 2011 is CNC machined from steel, this training replica features all of the trademarks of a Salient Arms pistol, incuding: a titanium nitride style barrel, competition style sights with fiber optic front insert, ambidextrous safety, and of course, Salient Arms International rollmarks for authenticity. Utilizing the Tokyo Marui Hi-Capa gas system, the Salient Arms / EMG DS pistol can be upgraded from a wide pool of available parts and components, ensuring easy repair and maintenance and years of reliable service. Unique to the CNC machined steel pistol is the unmistakable heft and feel of the gun which closely resembles the weight and feel of an actual loaded handgun; with the added weight of the slide, the recoil impulse is also increased as the heavy slide cycles back with each shot.

"The gun feels great and runs very smoothly. The first CO2 mag leaked but Evike customer support was very helpful and they sent me a new one very quickly.

"I won this in the box of awesomeness and it bieng my first EMG product, I was blown away. The weight is amazing. (I can’t imagine how heavy the full steel version would be). It came with the Co2 magazine and since I live in colder climates,this is great. The one complaint is the magazine. The Co2 is a little hard to screw into the mag without pliers,but that isn’t too much of a surprise. The one that I received had a leaky magazine,but Evike covered that so I’m happy. If you got through this review without dying of boredom, then congratulations!!! Thanks for taking the time to read this.

"I finally bought this pistol about three months ago after eyeing it for a good while. My first side arm was an EF 1911 so I was looking to upgrade. Man oh man does this thing perform. I bought the 5.1 Green Gas version. It feels so good in your hand and has a really great weight to it. It feels solid to grip and aim with. The magazine has a really large baseplate that you have to take off to fill it with green gas, and thats kind of annoying. I use .28s with it and I have never touched the hopup and it shoots far and accurate. The flat trigger feels really awesome and allows for some good rapid fire which this pistol is very capable of.

Good weight
Solid Grip
Mag Capacity both bbs and green gas
Good range
Mags are below $30
I could go on and on

Lare Baseplate, and having to remove it to fill with gas
(Personally I love the look the baseplate gives it)

Also, Evike recommends a Matrix hardshell holster, DO NOT BUY IT FOR THIS PISTOL. Buy a Blackhawk Serpa CQC for 1911s.
