Well to start off If you're going to buy a KJW 1911 hi-capa and plan on upgrading it. This is the best option out there as it already has a threaded barrel adapter which for me was the hardest bit to find when I was upgrading it and most models are expensive. This was my favorite sidearm I've ever had and I've used it in conditions from dry and sunny, 3ft of snow, swampy and during a hurricane and it has performed flawlessly.
Once the hop up is tuned in, it can reach great distances (once pegged a headshot from over 150ft. using .25's)
You take care of it, it'll take care of you
grip is good with or without gloves and when wet.
when I slide a fresh mag in, the slide lock usually automatically slides forward (could be a con but for quick reloads it's awesome)
ability to affix a suppressor (if you know how to make one...) or a barrel extension right out of the box
MIne only lasted 4 years of proper use with good maintenance practices and lubricating, but I did put it through a beating.
The front sight post has a tendency to slide to the side (lost mine in the PANTAC flat holster).
Doesn't fit into the 1911 with rail CQC SERPA holster.
