Questions & Answers
This Caspian 1911 Compact Single Stack has a metal slide (compatible with the TM 1911) and lower frame. The blow back action is operated by high pressure gas, such as green gas, red gas, or propane. The functional grip safety and slide safety make its operation safe for all users. An attachment point for a retention lanyard has been included to prevent the loss of the gun during high activity. The reinforced metal parts include the outer barrel, chamber, recoil spring rod, slide stop, slide 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 an SUV =) and rapid fire might hinder its optimum performance. That is the reason why it comes with an additional FREE magazine!!!!!

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.

This is a very good quality and durable gun, its got a good weight to it and looks very sexy. If I would tell you one reason not to get this gun it would be that it eats up gas like no other, but for a side arm and coming with two clips its great.
good weight and feel,
had it for almost two years still fires hard,
has a little kick which feels awesome
slide is pretty slow after awhile (you'll need to replace)
orange tip was glued on so hard to take off but not imposable
the extra mag it comes with is not exactly the same color of the gun it self its more darker

2007-12-30 08:29:38 R. DIEDESCH extremely heavy for a gas pistol. heavier than my brothers KJW full metal M9. the only reason this gun does not recieve a 5 out of 5 rating for me is because yes, it does eat gas like a freakin SUV. or no, it uses gas like a jumbo jet. it feels very solid. the outerbarrel does wobble a bit, but it doesnt really bother me. i have held real .45s before. this gun feels so real, it send shivers down my spine. the orange tip is also very easily removed. but it can go right back on thanks to not being glued on in the first place. i was a little angry with airsoft GI for the gun taking so long to get here, but boy am i happy it got here overall. it is a very good product and it seems to be hard to find anywhere else.
