Our take: The WE 1911 Hi-Capa 5.1K-Tac, perhaps one of the most unique looking pistols from the WE 1911 collection, is an amazing pistol to both see and wield. The 5.1K-Tac features a signature unique DRAGON textured front end, which is full metal and extremely intimidating. The full metal slide and frame are designed to increase power and accuracy, while controlling recoil so that the pistol is extremely stable and accurate during shooting. The polymer hand grip is sturdy and comfortable, resulting in a very secure grip with minimal effort. The chamber, safety, slide stop, hammer, trigger, barrel, are also quality-manufactured from reinforced metal in order to replicate the solid, full metal feel of a real M1911.
WE Tech has also upgraded the internals to reflect their dedication to high-performance. They have reinforced the recoil and hammer springs, improved the structural rigidity of the firing pin, and installed a high flow valve to maximize performance and durability. The safety is easily accessible, in typical M1911 fashion, and as always, there is a functional lower tactical metal rail for easy tactical accessory (laser, flashlight, etc) mounting.
The culmination of all of WE Tech's knowledge of the gas blowback pistol and Caspian Arms' rock-solid durability has produced what we think is arguably one of THE MOST WELL-ROUNDED gas blowback pistol line-ups on the market. An integrated rail on the frame of the pistol (railed frame) allows for easy laser/flashlight mounting.
You get the best of both worlds (performance and realism), with no compromise made to quality or durability. To put it in simpler terms, it shoots hard, it kicks hard, and yet it is still extremely accurate.
