Things I liked:This gun is worth every penny! I received this the next day after i ordered it with Pyramyd air's free shipping! Its very accurate (holding a group the size of a quarter at approx. 25 yards). And talk about durability, this thing is built like a tank! And I love the fact that you can strip this gun down just like the real 1911! This makes it very enjoyable and easy to clean. The kick from the blow back is really nice. (I would compare the recoil of this pistol to the Kimber 1911 .22 semi auto pistol. And i would give the realism on this gun a 10 out of 10. This is definitely a gun every one should have in there collection. With the realism of the build to the solid all metal construction, from the metal slide to the working grip safety to the fill size metal clip, the Tanfoglio Witness 1911 is going to provide me with many, many, years of fun! Things I would have changed:The spring is really stiff on the clip to hold back while loading, Maybe they should modify it to where you don't hurt your finger to hold back the spring guide for the bb's. Other than that, I wouldn't change a thing! What others should know:Get yourself a lot of Co2 cartridges if you plan on doing a good bit of shooting with this gun.. I would strongly recommend getting a extra clip or 2 for this gun to save yourself a lot of time loading between clips.
