Swiss Arms SA 1911 MRP Pistol
The box states that this gun comes with Hop-Up (spin), but it does not.
Almost identical to its real steel counterpart this full-metal 1911, this desert camo Swiss Arms SA 1911 has the heft and feel of one the most iconic American handguns. Load up a single 12g CO2 cartridge and send its 18rds downrange at speeds up to 320 fps. A checkered grip ensures a steady hold for you to perfect your aim while looking down the fixed sights. Add a laser/flashlight to the Picatinny optics rail to practice your tactical shooting skills. Best of all, the realistic blowback locks the slide back when out of ammo! Pick up another clip to stay in the action!
|Max Velocity||320 fps|

Things I liked: the way it looks, feels, functions and accurate.
Things I would have changed: can't think of anything
What others should know: on the box it says no blow back, I don't know what that means, seams confusing.
Things I liked: Feel and function is almost EXACTLY like a 1911 (it's almost spooky). Weight, thumb safety, trigger pull, racking the slide ... all the same. My laser sight after-market accessory fits nicely on the little rail.
Things I would have changed: 1. Loading BBs into the drop-out magazine is a royal pain. Somebody needs to redesign this. We are told that the magazine holds 18; I can't get more than ten into the magazine before my fingernails start to bleed. 2. The CO2 cartridge is carried in the dropout magazine itself. Somehow, though, this works. 3. You need a separate wrench (it doesn't stow anywhere in the gun) to install the CO2 cartridge. I've always thought this was a bad idea. 4. Accuracy is just ordinary.
Things I liked: I have most versions of the 1911 series but this is by far one of the nicest tactical versions that is made blowback is good and the finish was well done looking forward to the next surprise i really enjoyed putting it through the ringer shot over 20 mags no problems.
Things I would have changed: may be you can offer different grip versions rubber would be nice.
What others should know: stock up on co2 and mags.

will real 1911 grips fit?
Does this have a painted finish or is it an anodize? Is the metal stainless?
The finish is painted. It seems fine on most of the gun but mine began to wear off the face of the hammer almost immediately. I took mine apart to see how it worked and the metal is definitely cast and not steel. It doesn't seem to be aluminum either. The 3rd most common metal used for firearms and airguns is zinc alloy, which I believe this gun to be. Probably zamak 3 alloy. There is an insert that's metal and holds most of the mechanical parts. It also has the slide rails. It's has a black finish to it that's much more robust than the paint. I can't tell what metal it is due to this finish. It looks to be cast, but may be steel.
