This pistol is built exactly like its TM counterpart, except for a few minor differences. First, its full metal, and second, it is only $115!!!
I will be honest and admit that I have never thought of owning a Hicapa. I have always gone for g-series styles of pistols. After "lady-luck" at Assault on Antioch touched my shoulder and handed me this gun during the raffle, I had fallen in love with the weight, feel, reliability, ammo capacity, and power. After its first official outing at Hill 559 it took the cake. The accuracy, power, and smooth cycling, despite being buried in the dirt from me taking a nose dive, left me speechless and many others surprised.
-holds 30rds per mag = less reloads
-great solid construction
-easy to clean and maintain
-TM Hicapa 5.1 mags work amazingly well in this pistol and I highly recommend them, also the cooldown time for them is very short and they hold enough gas for almost two full mags.
-I compared this gun next to my buddies TM 1911 Hicapa, and they are literally built exactly the same except his is plastic and costs $189
-the mag it comes with works great, but I noticed a small loss of power in the last 10 shots
-finding a holster can be hard, and soft holsters will bump the mag release causing you to possibly lose a mag (although there are 1911 serpa holsters that this will fit snugly in)
