Things I liked:heft and feel of it is very realistic. I like the drop down magazine with the co2 in the clip. I wonder if they have extra magazines for it? It holds 18 shots so you have a nice long shooting spell before you have to reload. Things I would have changed:Trigger. It is ok in single action, but boy that is a LONG pull in the double action. I would also like to see a traditional looking trigger in it instead of that long double action trigger and the clip is hard to pull the spring down for loading.. a little more lip or some kind of loading handle would be nice. What others should know:So far it has been very reliable, pretty good groupings so far, offhand at about 30 feet I can get about 1 inch groups with a little concentration. Overall a great value for the price.
Things I liked:look. feel. weight. realistic functions. Especially the blowback with the way it locks open after the last shot. I have an original 1911 made in 1914 and if you put them side by side it is pretty hard to tell apart, minus the markings on the slide. VERY realistic looking, functioning bb gun. Things I would have changed:seems a little award to load. some kind of lockdown for the loading spring ( or a notch)anything that will let you let go so you can load the bb's would be nice like on other models. I wish it would come with an extra clip.. it would be more fun to just run off a clip then change clips and keep going. The co2 doesn't last very long.. but it is SO MUCH FUN TO SHOOT! it goes fast. comes in a nice cardboard box, however at the cost you would expect a nice plastic or hard case. What others should know:This bb gun is very realistic in weight feel and function. IF you lay it down to a real model 1911 and turn out the lights, you will not be able to tell difference unless you pull the clip and feel the bullets or bbs. It is realistic enough to get you killed if you point it at somebody that is for sure. Buy lots of co2!if you buy this gun, however I think they are already out of stock. I like the commemorative aspect of it. I will be looking for others now. Great gun. Honestly, a pretty good buy.
