Product Information:
This was a great pistol... until my magazine release broke as described below. Nowhere offers a replacement as far as I can tell. Airsoft GI should offer this piece. I would not recommend that you buy this until somewhere starts selling this part, because this problem seems to happen quite often. Otherwise you might end up like the rest of us with a fine pistol that you can't use. My barrel bushing also broke but I was able to replace that.

Hard Hitting
Feels Nice

Made of weaker metal
Takes lots of gas
Lack of available replacement parts

This gun is sweet AT FIRST... it shot hard and it shot accurate, but after six months god frowned upon me and made the magazine release break in half, this was very problematic as this piece is required to hold the magazine in the gun at the correct spot so that it will perform properly, the other bad thing is that the replacement piece is no where to be found, and other brands such as TM or a real steel magazine catch will not fit this gun, I am very saddened by this because when it worked this was my favorite GBB. (Sigh)

-Shoots hard
-Full metal
-Looks cool
-Grip and on frame safety (safety first)
-Badass in general

-The magazine release WILL break-it happened to my friend too
-Lack of replacement parts
-It's a gas slut
-Hop up is tough to adjust because you have to take the slide off
-If I bought from Airsoft GI I would have gotten an Extra mag with it-I didn't know you guys existed when I got it! :(

This is a great gun! I got this gun for Christmas and it has served me well. With a .25 gram bb, i was able to hit a man sized target passed 100 feet! A word of caution though, DON'T BUY SAPIEN ARMS GREEN GAS. it may be cheap, but it sucks. I am now going to have to replace the hop-up because i is so over-lubed from the gas. Sapien Arms puts WAY too much lube in there gas. Because of all of this lube, I now can't even hit a basketball from 15 feet! Also, even with the Sapien Arms gas, I was able to shoot 48 rounds out of one mag (and this is without any upgrades!). So, overall i would suggest this gun to people who are interested in it. Another tip, always store your mags vertical and with a little bit of gas in them.

Super accurate
Good gas efficiency (for me)
Good weight
Comes with two mags
Good FPS
Easy and realistic disassembly
Great trigger response
Light trigger

Slide wobbles
Sights suck
Grips are plastic
No trades
When the metal gets lube on it, it takes forever to get off
Light recoil spring

This is a really good gas pistol. It's got nice blowback, good accuracy, and good distance for a sidearm. The full metal body on this pistol is also very nice. 2 mags in this package are a great bonus. The only problem is it eats alot of gas.

Nice blowback
Good distance
Full Metal
2 mags

Eats lots of gas, other than that no cons

I have had this pistol now for about 7 months. I absolutley LOVE this pistol. Everything on it is very high quality, sturdy, and is absolutley identical to a real 1911. The accuracy of this beast, is outstanding. Im hitting a 12inch target at 100 feet with this pistol, every single time. This has an outstanding hop-up. It is very easy to take apart and clean, it comes apart in about 4 seconds. I absoloutley love it, and might get another, just because of how impressed I am with it.

-High quality materil
-As close to real wait as you will ever get
-Great accuracy
-High FPS
-Very easy to clean
-The best blow back I have ever seen
-4 safties on this pistol(just like real 1911)

One of the mags that comes with this gun leaks a whole bunch and needs to be replaced.

Ok this is probably only what happened to mine but...
the slide was chipped of on the back when i first opened it. wasnt that big of a deal because it still worked. it was not very accurate at all when i tested it with .2 and .25 bbs and it guzzles gas like no other gun i have seen before. i could only get off like 10 of the 15 shots before it ran out of gas. i used it maybe 3 times in battle at a cqb place and then the spring cap thing in the front broke and then the piece that holds the barrel in the slide broke. the lanyard attachment loop just fell off when i first shot the gun and the slide saftey didnt function that well. the hop up knob wouldnt turn on mine either. but again, this probably only happened to mine because i saw all of the other reviews so it must be that mine was just the one bad gun. btw its kind of hard to find the front sight when you are trying to aim cause its all black.

comes with 2 mags
nice blowback
smooth cocking

slide saftey was faulty
guzzles gas (cant even get a full mag off)
sring cap thing and the piece that holds the barrel in the reciever is crap
slide is EASILY broken

Product Information:
Just like the real 1911 it is easy to get into and clean. I have had no problems with anything breaking off, even after the two major ops and many rounds fired in target practice. And also just like the real 1911 there are four safeties: The half-cock, the thumb safety, the grip safety, and the barrel safety that activates if you push the barrel back. The weight is amazing and just feels right. All the pieces are metal with the exception of the orange tip, the grips, a piece or two inside the grip and the air director that fires the BBs and makes the slide go back, but those pieces seem very solid.

-Great weight
-Great build
-Two mags!
-Full metal
-Compatible with red gas
-.45 ACP etching ontop just like real steel!

-The gun will sometimes eat Green Gas that is not real green gas. Suggested that you buy the WHITE cans from airsplat until AirsoftGI gets ahold of those.
-The slide spring on the bottom has a bit of a wobble because it isn't attached to anything, which makes the only sound when you shake the gun. But it is nothing to worry about or have to fix.

-realistic looking
-accurate at long range

-bit of a gas hog

Awesome, i bought my WE colt which in turn led two other members of my airsoft group to buy this one and the black tactical edition. My unfortunate friend who bought the governmental issue received a bad model however. His has many gas feeding problems right out of the box. Fortunately the tactical black and my Colt couldn't be better. I have many notches in the handle of this pistol :D

I own a remake Governmental issue 1911 by Springfield and this is a damn good replica of it.

Realist feel / sound
Realistic breakdown / easy maintenance
Realist safety features (all 4 of them)
Incredible accuracy with heavier bb's
Hard hitting power
Simple magazine loading

Paint tends to chip off very easily
Obviously doesn't do well in cold weather
Magazines have cheap plastic pieces that break if slammed while loading
Somewhat loose hop-up wheel on my gun
Rattle noise when shaken (slide not tight on gun, not a functional problem, only cosmetic)
Slide lock tough to work at first
Requires regular gun oil application (any will do)

Many of these Cons are minor or pertain to aesthetics. As a wepon used on the battlefield it is rivaled by no other in its category.

But watch out for "Lemons" :D (DOA models)
