Amazing, amazing, amazing gun. This thing feels like the real steel. The mechanisms are fluid and the blow back is not the strongest I've ever felt on a gbb gun but does give you enough kick to make you jerk a little. It's loud, sexy, and weighty. Just like it should be. The full metal construction is superb.
Magazine slides out easily since it's full metal too, so sexy
Gun also accepts CO2 magazine (so long as it's made for an M9)
Rail System for lasers or tac lights
Price (but you pay for quality)
Gun cocks back a little too easily, sometimes poses a problem when holstering your gun. I solved this by holding the cocking pin forward when putting my gun back in my holster. Maybe it's just my gun but just a heads up. This minor thing doesn't make me regret the purchase one bit.
Just recently bought this, and haven't played with it yet. However, I have messed around with it, and shot maybe 30 rounds out of it so far. Haven't had any problems yet, and I love it. It has a good decent weight to it (more realistic), but isn't like toting a small log on your hip like other sidearms. It has a good fire rate, and is simple and easy to use. The ambidextrous safety makes it comfortable for lefties or righties. I have yet to chrono this firearm yet, but it went through an aluminum can at about 20-30 ft.
laser sight capability
The only thing I have found so far, is the system to remove the slide can be a little bit of a pain
Got this during the Christmas promotion and I must say it's impressive! I've always been a fan of KJWs (having owned KWAs, KSCs, KWCs, G&Gs, and so on). Good fit and finish, good power, and oh my, the heft of this beast! I measured it on a digital scale and it comes in at 1131 grams (2.49 lb) fully loaded. That is heavier than my real steel Glock 21 SF (1067 grams or 2.35 lb) with 11 rounds!
The power is enough to crack cheap ceramic vases and go through denim. Even though I didn't chrony it, the FPS is definitely there (the slip that came from Airsoft G.I. stated 300 for the test fire).
Take-down and operation are close enough to the real thing. Sure, the hammer-drop is only a safety and the recoil assembly is not 100% but for a fun airsoft toy, it absolutely gets my approval.
At a price point of around $80, this is a no-brainer. Definitely get it! It oozes value but doesn't skip out on quality. You get to have your cake and eat it too. Even if it was priced at $150, I'd still find it reasonable for the performance / build quality. To quote sootch00 "Thumbs waaay up!"
-Weight... Pretty much close to the real thing (unloaded)
-Power... Goes through ceramic and denim
-Realism... Gets 90%+ stuff right
-Ergonomics... This particular Elite model is shaped after the Beretta Vertec grip i.e 1911 grip angle and a bit slimmer than your usual M9 / 92FS clones. If you're looking for a Beretta airsoft pistol, I highly recommend the Vertec frame such as this one. In fact, it's what pushed my decision over the other models.
-Price... $80 during the Christmas promo period; 'nuff said.
-Trigger... Very smooth double-action. Pull weight is very light which aids in accurate breaks.
-Sights... They are fully blacked out. I had to paint them using white nail polish to get a makeshift three-dot system.
-Orange tip... Painted on. Can't really scuff it off or else the barrel finish will also come off. Some ingenious manufacturers use glue or make a separate piece so it can either be heated and removed or dremeled off. Paint is a dumb solution to satisfy legislation because it means the end-user cannot remove it.
-Trigger... The single action has a click / grit on the first pull that is so characteristic of airsoft DA/SA mechanisms (present in a lot of other 92 variants and various manufacturers). Thankfully, the lightness of the overall pull more than makes up for it. Not a big deal overall.
