Things I liked:This is an undiscovered jewel! Compared to other Airsoft pistols in it's class, this is a great little gun -- nice weight and power. The CYMA 1911 has a surprisingly all-metal casing aside from the plastic grips. I bought this gun for my 11 year old, but after shooting with it a few times, I found this to be one of my favorite guns for the money. I've shot it with both .12g and .20g bbs and it handles them well at close range. After many rounds, I found this to be a really solid gun. The bb cartridge is well designed and easy to load. Things I would have changed:After reloading, the cartridge can't be pushed/slapped in without pushing down on the cartridge release button. Other than that, it's a great gun for the price. What others should know:Get one. Great gun for the price.
