I bought one of these from GI a couple of weeks ago and it worked great out of the box, absolutely no problems, nice and solid. There is a tiny amount of wiggle on the slide. It has decent weight and the overall build quality is outstanding. The finish is however fairly fragile and easily chips off. Gas doesn't seem to be a problem, I can shoot about two loads on one fill with each of the two mags. However rapid fire does present a problem with the slide catching on the hammer and not returning properly. All four of the 1911 safety features do work on this replica. The Mad bull air soft Punisher compensator fits nicely, after removal of the orange tip, the colors match up quite well.
