Things I liked:The manual of arms is just like a real steel 1911 auto. This model is made of all metel, and you can feel the quality just by picking it up, and holding it in your hand. The acutal markings is an great touch of realism. I have the Stainless model, and it looks just like my actual Colt 1911, it even fits in my duty, and concelment holsters. It is a bit expensive, but you will be very happy that you spent the money, you get what you pay for. Things I would have changed:I would like to see night, or 3-Dot combat sights for this model. I would also like to have wrap around grips for it too. Other then that, no complants about this pistol at all. What others should know:I would stock up on lots of targets, pellets, and Co2....you'll be shooting this one alot, and like me, loveing every second of it.
