The UTG Tactical 1911 Spring Pistol Airsoft Gun is constructed from metal for a durable and realistic feel. The UTG Tactical 1911 is operated by racking the slide which cocks the spring for a single shot. The spring system used in this gun allows it to be very affordable, however it is not skirmishable or realistic. The UTG Tactical 1911 has realistic features such as realistic sights, slide cocking serrations, textured grip and magazine release. Despite the realistic features, the UTG Tactical 1911 leaves much to be desired in the authenticity department.
Although the UTG Tactical 1911 may be adequate for a display piece or prop, there are much better options for skirmishable airsoft guns that are still affordable. A spring shotgun such as the AGM Full Stock Spring Shotgun Airsoft Gun which comes in at only $29.99 features a much more realistic action as well as a much higher build quality. For a $45 more you can purchase a very reliable and skirmishable shotgun such as the Fire Power Multi-Shot Spring Shotgun
which features a very durable polymer body as well as 3 shot burst to better replicate a shotgun. Although, if you are set on purchasing a high quality 1911 style hand gun then you should save up a purchase a Gas blow back handgun, GBB airsoft guns are the most realistic guns you can buy. The Caspian Full Metal 1911 Tactical Single Stack Airsoft Gun is a extremely realistic gun that performs great, you can check it out here, Caspian Full Metal 1911 Tactical Single Stack Airsoft Gunn
As previously stated, this gun is not field ready due to its low performance. Although due to its realistic look and features, this gun is a great choice for use in film productions or as a great display piece. Please do not expect to be able to compete with high quality airsoft guns while using this low cost airsoft gun. This gun is not serviceable and does not come with a warranty of any kind.

Let me say overall this gun was really good for its original price of $24 and i have actually taken this out with me for a few games and they were not backyard they were actual games. this gun has preformed exceptional i love it and the 2 mag combo helps especially since the mag capacity on mine is ~12 rounds great gun overall i would recommend to anyone who is just starting up in airsoft and doesn't or cant spend $100+ on a gas pistol.

I have had this gun for about 6 months already and it is still in great condition. When I first picked up the gun, it had a nice heavy weight to it. The externals and magazines were full metal besides the outer barrel and grips. As for the internals, they were plastic. What really amazed me was the accuracy. I was able to hit a soda can from about 50 feet away using .20g bbs with ease. What disappointed me was the thumb safety. The thumb safety is very loose and would not stay in place sometimes. Furthermore, when the gun is cocked, you cannot activate the thumb safety. Another flaw is that the paint chips off easily, but for $24 I wasn't expecting everything to be flawless. All in all, this gun was worth the price.
-Full metal externals
-Accurate for a spring pistol
-Working thumb safety
-Working grip safety
-Comes with two metal magazines
-Front sight has a seam in the middle
-Paint chips easily
-Thumb safety gets loose
-When the gun is cocked, thumb safety won't lock into place

Shipping came pretty quick. Has a good weight to it. Everything is metal except for the grip. But internals are plastic. Comes with two metal mags. Holds about 16 bbs. Has a bb chamber in the back to hold extra bbs.
Feeds well, doesn't jam. Sounds real nice when you shoot it.
The accuracy is alright, but overall its a great gun for its price.
Working hammer (even though really it doesn't do anything :P ) Just makes it look more realistic.
Working thumb safety
Working grip safety
Comes with two mags
No dots on sights
Front sight has a seam in the middle, which is kinda annoying
Slide is kinda hard to cock back
Other than that, great gun. I would definitely invest in it.
