"I bought this gun a few months ago, after having it for a few months, i'm here to write a review
first things first, this is a budget gun, but i have a lot of products from this manufacturer (matrix), and all of their stuff has been pretty great to be honest.
this gun is cheap and has that cool "tactical" look
it ACTUALLY is full metal (aside from the plastic grips), unlike some guns that claim to be full metal but have a polymer lower
it has a good weight, and it's pretty compact
the compensator isn't attached in the traditional sense, but instead the rail extends past the slide and the compensator screws into through the bottom.
as well, the mag well is actually screwed into the bottom of the grip, and the cool squared off trigger guard is actually just a piece of plastic that goes over the round trigger guard.
all of these things, however, aren't a problem, you're paying a cheap price for the look of a decked out gun
that being said, of all of the things i have gotten from Matrix, this isn't the best
on day 1, after receiving the package the trigger wouldn't reset very well at all, i'd have to give it a tough smack to get it to reset well.
i emailed evike, asking if i could take it apart without voiding the warranty, but they just sent an email saying my request to send it in for repair was accepted. while i was really considering sending it in, i decided i would just take it apart myself because i'm very familiar with 1911's
i bent the leaf spring, and for the most part, the problem is fixed.
this honestly may have just been my gun, things like this happen.
another much smaller problem, the safety is waaay to easy to move. barely any tension, your hand is probably gonna nudge the safety up just enough to activate the it. i simply grip my thumb over the safety.
might also just be mine.
aside from that, the gun needed to be lubed up, specifically in the blow back unit, but that's not a problem at all.
the final, smallest problem, is how easily the paint can come off of some parts. but hey, a little bit of wear on your gun never hurts.
i personally collect airsoft guns more than i play, so i only bring these out to plink every once in a while.
if i were being honest, i'm not certain that this is a great gun to use as your go to secondary if you're a serious player.
however, i got this (on sale) for $75, and spare mags are only $18. a FULL METAL gun for $75 is actually nuts.
for my purposes, i would say it's 4/5 stars
