This full metal 1911 has a metal slide (compatible with TM) and metal lower frame with a rail for mounting accessories like a G&P M3 Pistol Flashlight. The blow back action is operated by high pressure gas, such as green gas, red gas, or propane. The sights function by lining up the white dot on the front sight between the white dots on each side of the rear sight. The functional grip safety and ambidextrous slide safety make its operation safe for all users. Numerous other features include forward cocking serrations, improved trigger, and an attachment point for a retention lanyard. The reinforced metal parts include outer barrel, chamber, recoil spring rod, slide stop, safety, hammer, and trigger. The internal upgrade parts include reinforced recoil spring, hammer spring, firing pin, and a extreme high flow valve. Due to its high velocity, it consumes just as much gas as a SUV =) and rapid fire might hinder its optimum performance.

Recently we have seen many reincarnation’s of America’s venerable 1911 pistol. WE is no stranger to the manufacturer of 1911 style gas blowback airsoft pistols, having great success with their stylish series of Hi-Capa pistols. Their pistols have offered both full metal construction and compatibility with the more powerful red and green gases. And it is no exaggeration to say that the WE 1911 single stack is their best pistol yet.
The full metal body gives it a feel and weight that you do not see in other stock brands like the Tokyo Marui or Western Arms 1911s. If it wasn’t for the orange tip I could swear that I was holding the real article. Its operation is almost identical to that of the real single action M1911 designed so many years ago by John Browning. The design includes a realistic magazine release, slide stop, and hammer safety. Also, for added benefit the magazine incorporates a new loading system that allows for quick loading without the benefit of a speed loader. It will not only save you time but it will save your fingers.
The only limitation that I encountered was the inability to rapidly fire. I do not claim to be an expert on physics, however the problem would seem to relate to the cooling of the gases in the magazine. The magazine cools down too quickly, so the gases fail to expand and reducing the recoil of the slide till it is unable to move back. The problem isn’t unprecedented and has been seen in other gas blowback designs in the past. However, WE had the forethought to include a second magazine to help solve this problem.
Overall, I would say that the WE 1911 is an excellent firearm for its value. Like all Airsoft guns it has its own inherent flaws, but for those looking for a realistic handgun and are willing to take there time with well aimed shots I would recommend this gun.

Got this gun 4 months ago and it is broken. The piece that is supposed to catch the slide when the magazine is emty broke. The slide doesn't stay back when empty anymore. Gun came with two magazines, one free flow leaked gass from day one, the other now has a slow leak that causes the magazine to be out of gas before you can fire all the BB's out. ASGI tech support has not responded to 3 emails over the last 2 weeks with a solution to fix this gun.
Looks good, heavy
Both magazines that came with the gun leak, one really bad the other just bad enough to not fire a full magazine worth of bb's.
Slide catch broke after about a month.
ASGI has not responded to 3 emails now over a period of two weeks, customer service is going down the toilet.
