For: Colt 1911A1 Blowback Pistol CO2 Airsoft Gun (Black)
I've had this pistol for over a year now and I LOVE IT. I bought it from another site to be honest, but it is the same product. It has a satisfying weight to it and the controls are pretty comfortable. I can operate every feature both wearing and not wearing gloves. It has a very crisp blowback action that kicks about as much as a real steel .22lr handgun, which is very nice for an airsoft gun. I also bought two additional magazines from yet ANOTHER different website and they work just as well as the one that the gun came with. If I don't do a lot of rapid shooting I can get 4+ 17rd magazines off before the CO2 cartridge runs out as long as I give the mag roughly 30 seconds of warming up in my hand after reloading it each time. If I shoot quickly, it easily holds enough gas for 2-3+ full loads. Speaking of capacity, I think that 17 rounds is just about right for a sidearm. When you compare it to the real 1911's capacity of only 7 rounds there really is a big difference. Sadly extra mags are a bit costly, but they are gas mags after all. I like that this gun is styled after the M1911A1 that the U.S. used in WWII up until the 80's, and the Colt trademarks make it great for themed matches of that time period. I have however noticed that the finish on the metal is a bit thin and is easily prone to scratching as I learned when using my first holster, a plastic one. It left some rubbing marks on the slide but this is purely cosmetic. That may still be a con for some, though. Personally, I think that the wearing adds character to the weapon. I have not tried to remove the orange tip and I do not plan to do so. I have not chrono'ed this gun but I did notice that while playing in an outdoor match it was not able to penetrate through thick brush and hit a target about 15 yards away, but shooting at a man-sized target without cover I can easily hit my mark from that distance. Realistically speaking, that's pretty much all you're probably going to be using a sidearm for anyway. The iron sights are not bad for an airsoft gun, but not the greatest at distance either, however when firing rapidly and watching the path of your bb's it looks like you're shooting a laser out of your gun. I don't think I will ever be replacing this gun as my main sidearm, but if it ever broke for some odd reason I would buy another in a heartbeat. Overall I believe that this is a fantastic airsoft gun and it is one of if not THE BEST of all the airsoft 1911's on the market. If you are looking for a durable, reliable sidearm that could also be used for themed matches or re-enactments, look no further.

In my humble opinion the pros certainly outweigh the cons, so do yourself a favor and get your hands on one of these bad boys.
