Questions & Answers
The release of the SOCOM Gear 1911 has been highly anticipated by those that know what this pistol is. To the untrained eye it may look like just another 1911 but it is ,in fact, much more. The SOCOM Gear 1911 features a full metal body, upgraded iron sights for easier aiming, front cocking serrations on the slide, comfortable grips, ambidextrous safety for right and left handed users. Also for enhanced looks SOCOM Gear has added and engraved slide, railed lower frame and chamber; as well as a 3 hole trigger, skeleton hammer, and beaver tail. A threaded adapter is included in the package.
I have the older version of this gun, the one with a complete wraparound grip and SocomGear badges. I have to say that it has been very durable and has worked well for me, but some parts have worn out after nearly four years understandably. The beavertail safety has stopped working almost entirely. If you pull the trigger hard enough, it will fire even if you aren't holding the grip. Not a big problem. Also, the threaded adapter that came with my gun fell off during a game due to it being loose and I lost it. Not a problem a dot of super glue can't fix. The black paint, unless they fixed it, chips rather easily. The badges will fall off, so be careful.
Loud and heavy recoil
Comes with a free pistol lanyard
Some parts are fragile, but I'm not sure if this is still an issue. I had the first version of the gun. Just don't beat the crap out of it like I did.
I'm a new comer to airsoft and airsoft skirmishes. This is a gun I've looked at getting in the past. A good friend of mine has it and he says it'd be a great start with a side arm. He's let me handle it and I love it. It's great weight, has great accuracy (in my opinion), and is a perfect start to my airsoft career.
This gun has good accuracy, gas gives it almost a realistic feel, generally easy to use in and out of battles, and it has a decent mag cap.
Over all I couldn't say anything too bad about this sidearm. The trigger finger could be better, and it jammed only twice on me and my friend.
