The Colt MKIV Spring Pistol Airsoft Gun is constructed from plastic that keeps the weight down but is not as durable as its high end metal counter part. The Colt MKIV 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 Colt MKIV has realistic features such as realistic sights, slide cocking serrations, textured grip, magazine release, imitation red dot, and flashlight. Despite the realistic features, the Colt MKIV leaves much to be desired in the authenticity department.
Although the Colt MKIV 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 M9 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 WE Full Metal M9 is a extremely realistic gun that performs great, you can check it out here, WE Full Metal M9 MEU Airsoft Gun
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.
