"I got this gun during the summer of 2020, and I definitely owe it a review. On a fresh CO2 cartridge, this thing easily shoots at 400 fps with .20g BBs, and drops down to more widely accepted speeds after a few rounds (around a full magazine should do it). I can get about 60 to 80 rounds on a single cartridge, and considering the fps and solid blowback, I personally think that's pretty great.
Possibly the only downside is that the metal construction makes it too heavy for certain holsters (namely thigh holsters; I've used two different types, and neither were able to keep it in very well). However, after getting a hard-shell holster to put on my belt, this problem was easily solved.
One thing that I simply have to say is how downright sturdy and reliable this thing is. I recently lost it in the snow (it had fallen out of my thigh holster at some point, hence my earlier comment on the matter) and it was at least three to four weeks before we were able to search for it again. By that point, the snow had melted, and we were worried that it might have rusted. My buddy found it the next day, and not only did it have minimal rust, but it still worked like a dream. The magazine had held up, too! With a bit of steel wool for the cosmetic rust and silicone oil for the internals, it was good as new. After that experience, I can say with confidence that this 1911 will stand by you so long as you stand by it, and it's well worth the price tag. Even after dry-firing it at least a few dozen times (in a row, on at least two occasions) during its service, this gun kept on shooting like there was no tomorrow.
There are obviously things like paint/color wear after repeated/extended use, but that's to be expected, and doesn't affect performance. There's also the matter of accuracy, but this thing is pretty standard in that regard. You wouldn't want to rely on it for long range, but it could realistically work, since its shooting distance is on par with an AEG. In close-quarters, though, it's a monster. I've made incredible snap shots with this thing, as well as hip-shots, and have almost never had to actually use the sights to consistently hit my targets.
I suppose one of my main points is its apparent resistance to rust and other damage, though when you couple that with its top-notch performance and decent gas efficiency, you get a truly wonderful sidearm. Pair it with some attachments, and maybe an extended magazine, and you won't need another sidearm for a long, long time.
