The UK Arms G6 Spring Powered Pistol Airsoft Gun w/Metal Slide (Black) is constructed primarily from plastic that keeps the weight down but is not as durable as its high end metal counter part. The UK Arms G6 Spring Powered Pistol Airsoft Gun w/Metal Slide 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 UK Arms G6 Spring Powered Pistol Airsoft Gun w/Metal Slide has realistic features such as realistic sights, slide cocking serrations, textured grip and magazine release. Despite the realistic features, the UK Arms G6 Spring Powered Pistol Airsoft Gun w/Metal Slide leaves much to be desired in the authenticity department.
Although the UK Arms G6 Spring Powered Pistol Airsoft Gun w/Metal Slide may be adequate for a display piece or prop, there are much better options 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 41$ 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 1911 type airsoft gun you should save up a purchase a Gas blow back 1911, GBB airsoft guns are the most realistic guns you can buy. You can check the GBB 1911s out here, High quality Full metal 1911s
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 include a warranty of any kind.

Don't get me wrong, this is a cheap pistol. But even though it's cheap it's still a good reliable pistol. I've had this pistol for more than a year now, and I haven't had any major problems with it. So that's why I just bought another one. The only problem I've had so far, is that sometimes bbs will roll out of the barrel, but it is not a common occurrence. Airsoft GI reports the fps to be pretty low, but i've seen it on other sites reported at 315 fps, and that seems about right. It also feels great in my hand.
Higher fps than reported
Perfect sized grip
Some parts are cheaply made
Comes with .12g bbs
Bbs sometimes roll out of the barrel

Before I write this review I want to say that my rating is based on the fact that this is a non skirmishable spring gun.
Now I love this gun... I bought this just for looks along with a leg holster. I had a secondary but never used it so I sold it, but I was was going to my next game I noticed that my right side was kind of weak because I didnt have many pouches or anything on my thigh so I bought this to make it look like I had a legit sidearm. The metal slide make it feel nice even when plinking :p The fps is about 250-280ish. range of about 80ft. And it is hilarious when there is a guy 5 feet away from you and you pull this thing out and yell surrender and he does! Then his reaction when you tell him its a springer is even funnier! All in all this is a fun little gun just to have, no maintenance or anything. and also great for office wars XD
Cool looking and feeling
$12! Buy 5 for your office and have fun!
Its a cheapy spring gun. What do you expect?
