Product Information:
My first pistol, and one that's pretty decent. The weight seems to be on a 1:1 ratio with the real-steel 1911, and all the Doublestar trademarks and engravings are present from the real version as well. The tolerances on the slide could be a bit tighter, and the overtravel on the trigger is really big with no way to adjust it. I tried detail stripping to look for an overtravel adjustment screw but didn't find one.

The orange tip that came with mine was metal, I assume machines aluminum. I thought it was glued on at first, but it turns out it was just screwed onto the barrel very tightly. The orange tip is a male thread with the barrel's female thread accepting it, so no free threaded barrel once the orange tip comes off. Also, I'm pretty sure that the gun shoots a bit high from where the sights are aligned right out of the box. This is probably more easily remedied by messing with the hop-up rather than adjusting the sights.

I've had many failures to feed and failures to fire with this gun in all sorts of weathers and conditions to the point where I don't consider it to be fully combat reliable. The magazine lip on the stock magazine also breaks easily if you slap your mags home when the slide is locked back, which is how I was taught to reload to make sure the mag was seated properly.

Pros:
-Good weight
-Removable and replaceable orange tip
-Magazine doesn't require special gas can extender to fill up

Cons:
-Huge overtravel on trigger, a bit of a creep on it before it breaks
-Very unreliable trigger reset, seemingly made worse by cold weather
-Sights are a bit high straight out of the box
-Magazine breaks easily
-Safety easily disengaged by accident
