Things I liked:At the right range this AP is very accurate, but because the rear sight is not adjustable for elevation, this may not be all that obvious. After a bit of experimentation, I discovered that the elevation was spot on at 7M, so that when I shot a 10M ISSF target at 7M, I got a group centered in the black with an aggregate score of 89% using a 6 o'clock hold. This was on my first cartridge before I really got comfortable with the gun, so I suspect that I can get even better. I'm 72 shots into my first cartridge and it is still shooting that accurate, but suspect that I am near the end of the useful range based on earlier reviews. The trigger is not as nice as my real 1911A1, but the overall feel and grip angle should help with in home 1911 practice.
Things I would have changed:Incorporate fully adjustable rear sight either as an add on or as a target model. Trigger pull is a bit rough, and a bit on the long side. The double action trigger pull on this should match the regulation 1911A1 competition weight so you can better simulate timed (5 shots 20 seconds) and rapid fire (5 shots 10 seconds).
What others should know:You really need to grip tight for the grip safety to work properly, which while odd for AP, is good practice for shooting a real 1911. While a real 1911 does not "require" this tight of a grip, I get better accuracy on my real 1911 when I grip it this tight.
Things I liked:The workmanship, weight and obvious quality. To me, comparing this to my Tanfoglio Witness and KWC Blackwater 1911 really tells the difference in materials, etc. Accuracy is excellent. You're definitely rewarded for utilizing proper grip, breath control and trigger pull. The grips, to me at least, feel like rubber and they're excellent. I get a solid 80-88 shots before I stop so as not to cause a jam.
Things I would have changed:The grip safety could work just a bit better in my opinion; not that it's bad or doesn't work mind you, just that it could operate smoother. Perhaps a white dot on the front sight would have been nice as well. I would have loved the wooden grips but I couldn't justify the difference in price.
What others should know:This is a very well made, high quality product. It really does feel like a product that will last many years and well beyond its less expensive counterparts. I not only highly recommend this pistol, I also highly recommend getting extra magazines because you'll be shooting this a lot.
Things I liked:Beautiful workmanship on this pistol, very accurate & rifled barrel, efficient on CO2, easy to operate, uses same cartridge as my other UAREX pistols. I wanted double or single action trigger, this has it but manual pull back for trigger.
Things I would have changed:This is not a blow-back, the grip safety is not very smooth (can result in failure to fire if your grip not firm enough to engage), sights are basic - would prefer white dot to improve visibility.
What others should know:I bought this as I wanted very accurate, realistic 1911 style pistol with rifled barrels. It is more expensive than alternative, but delivers on quality and accuracy.
