Things I liked:This is a nice M1911 replica. Has a single sided safety like my .45ACP version. If you desire a M1911 trainer this pistol will mostly work. The pistol is single action with a nice crisp trigger and mine hits can-sized targets at 50 feet without using a rest. Magazine capacity is twice what the M1911 holds -- but still pretty light compared to double stack pistols.
Things I would have changed:The slide lock does not disengage when pulling the slide to the rear and releasing it. A serious defect I'm still try to solve. You have to use the slide stop as a slide release to close from slide lock. The frame safety needs to be tightened, it's to easy to engage or safe. I dislike the Kimberisk ramp-style rear sight and full length recoil spring guide but they're harmless on an airsoft pistol. All five of my KWA 1911 Mark magazines leak massive quantities of gas during loading. Aftermarket O-rings may cure this.
What others should know:Read all the details on what Mark has what details. The Mark 2 and 4 have light rails; the 3 and 4 Bull barrels; and there are various combinations of ambidextrous safeties and recoil spring guides.
