Questions & Answers
Are you looking to set your self out from the crowd with a little bit of style? If so then the Socom Gear 24K Gold Plated M1911 Government Classic might just be what you are looking for. Plated with 24K gold, this 1911 features classic style iron sights, trigger, beaver tail, and hammer. The grip is similar to that of the SOCOM Gear M1911 MEU and aids the user to maintaining a positive grip on this gun. The vibrant slide racks very smoothly and with each shot snaps violently back for a great felt recoil, and the gas system is extremely efficient. The Socom Gear 24K Gold Plated M1911 Government Classic is a limited edition gun and features a unique serial number which means these are sure to go fast, get yours while you still can!

An absolute stunner. This gun takes the classic government 1911 look and gives it a sweet gold finish. If you have your heart set on this gun, know that you will not be disappointed should you purchase it. That said, there are a few things you should know:
Yes, the serial numbers are higher than 500. Socom Gear actually did a run of 2000 of these after the initial positive reception.
All the black parts you see in the pictures (besides the grip) are painted. This paint is not very good and will begin wearing off almost immediately. If you are more familiar with GBBs and can service them, you can take all the black parts out, and give them a thin clear coat with spray paint to protect the paint, as I did after a thin re-paint.
The orange tip is a bear to get off. however, this gun does come with a detachable threaded tip that is black. I painted the threaded tip orange, and tossed the plastic one. This way, I can enjoy the look of my gun without the tip, yet still satisfy the law should I need to do so.
Now on to the Pros and Cons
Sexy, Gold finish
Heavy, full metal construction
MEU styles grips (rubber)
High parts availability (will work with any aftermarket WE/Socom Gear parts for 1911)
Unique serial numbers
It's just plain cool.
Paint is low quality and leaves a lot to be desired
Mag has the same issue, after 2 days of use the paint began to strip.
Orange tip kills the look of this gun.
Gold finish makes this gun somewhat impractical to use on the field, although you will be asked to show it off if you do use this for games.

I have owned this gun for about a year and it is simply a master piece. It shoots very well and the blowback is nice. Its very ergonomic and i love the grip safety. All of these things make this a great gun to own but the real reason this pistol is great is that ITS GOLD! If you want to stand out and have a great sidearm at the same time then this is the pistol for you.
Nice weight, feels good in your hand, grip safety, threaded, GOLD.
Since its all gold it could make you stand out when sneaking around.

This is a b-e-a-utiful gun! It shoots as powerfully as any other WE 1911. It's full metal, and has a 15 rd single-stacked magazine. Oh, but the best part is: its GOLD PLATED! It's plated in a thin layer of gold to give it that James Bond feeling. It also has a nice threaded tip for suppressors. Its got a nice blowback system too. I thought they were all out of stock. I thought all 500 of them were bought. But, Airsoft GI didn't let us down! And, its an offer that wont last, get 'em while they're hot! You wont be able to blink before they are gone!
freakin' real gold plating!
classic M1911A1 lookm and feel
nice rubber grips
handles like a true WE pistol
as great as a display as it is on the field
good heft to it (~3 lbs)
Only 500 in the world!!!!!!!!!!!
my slide lock thingy doesnt always work
kinda small magazine (but all 1911's have that)
awkward all-gold sights :/
