I've had this pistol for two years now and it still works as well as it did the day I bought it. I've performed regular maintenance on it during its "service life", but nothing drastic. This is a replica of what is usually referred to (possibly erroneously) as the "Inglis Hi-Power", with the rear tangent sight optimistically graduated to 500 meters. The replica even includes the slot in the rear of the grip which functioned as an attachment point for a wooden shoulder stock. I am disappointed, however, in that no lanyard loop is present.
Comparing it to my real Hi-Power, the weight and general "feel" of the replica gun is fairly similar. It has the usual wobble associated with a $100 WE gas blow-back. The pistol has a magazine safety (the gun cannot be fired without a magazine inserted), which is a hold-over from the real life design.
I've shot many people with it and am generally satisfied. As a "historical airsofter", I'm grateful that WE has chosen to replicate the Hi-Power as it's a ubiquitous weapon that has seen service from its invention in the 1930s all the way up to the present day.
Historically significant; the first usable replica of a firearm that has seen extensive and widespread use
Weight/feel is accurate to the original example in my collection
Crisp blowback action (to be expected)
Heavy trigger (10+ lbs?)
Wobbly construction (to be expected of a $100 WE replica)
No lanyard loop
Magazines are finicky (like all GBB magazines)
