For: WE Full Metal M9 Double Stack GBB Airsoft Gun (Silver)Product Information:
Okay, so for 120$ this may not be the best or most practical pistol you can buy, but none that I have seen rival it's beauty. Brilliant finish, ASGI's pictures do it no justice. Evike.com's picture is more accurate (don't buy it from there though, terrible service) The pistol runs great and is not a gas hog at all (can get 40+ shots per charge on propane), which is rare for WE tech pistols. It's accuracy isn't the best, due to inner and outer barrel wobble (both can be fixed with proper application of some tape)
Safety on mine needed excessive amount of force to switch, which may be why other reviewers have broken their safety switches. However, if you take it apart and sand down the piece of the safety that catches onto the notches in the slide a bit, it works flawlessly
Some people have said WE m9's do not have adjustable hopup system, but it does. It's quite archaic and hard to access though. You need to remove the barrel and slide off the outer barrel. Then there should be a flathead grub screw (which works as a nub) Tighten that to adjust hop.
Overall I love this pistol, great buy, although for practicality, the KJW is probably a better buy, and it's cheaper (but it just doesnt look half as cool)
Red dot front sight
Easily removable orange tip (can also be put right back on just as easily)
Not the most accurate pistol out there.
