"I would like to congratulate the makers of this gun. It is a pretty amazing pistol. Some things I would like to share is that the pistol is extremely realistic feeling. It has an amazing weight to it, and the clip is full metal other than the piece that you have to twist to set the co2. The pistol is only metal on the slide, hamer, saftey, mag release, slide holder, and the various screws. On the inside fo this pistol I have yet to delve into, so I do not know how much of that is metal. I brought this pistol to the great our doors and wanted to do a fps test... So I grabbed my web gear, German commando sweader, and my american field jacket. I went to work first on checking its accuracy and was severely disappointed. Although this is probally no the guns fault, for I was using .2g bb's, and when I got the pistol it came so packed with grease it was unbelievable. That is probably the reason for the extreme inaccuracy, at least at ranges further than 50ft. Close quarter combat would have been fine, because it was rather accurate for CQC. So after a few over 125 shots fired on the first co2 I decided to test its power. I first put up two pop cans in a row (they were empty) and I fired one round, it should be noted that I was at point blank range. I looked at the two cans and saw that the .2 g bb went through both the pop cans (four layers of crapy aluminum.) I then finished emptying the rest of this co2 tank and put in another one. I decided to not only line up two cans, but also another one making it three empty un-dented cans. I fired another round which was the 17th shot fired form the co2 tanks. It went all the way through the first two cans and severely dented and almost pierced the third. It should once again be noted that I was using .2g bb's. Some other things that should be noted about this pistol is that it is not the actual dimmension of the origianl 1911's. I have a WWII 1911 holster and my pistol does not fit into it. The gun is too big. So to those who were buying this, because they thought that it was an exact replica, sorry to burst your bubbles, but it isn't. After all of this stuff said I would like to say that i am extremely happy that I bought this pistol. I absolutely love it. I would definately buy this pistol agian if I had to do it over. I am no tgoing to be using this pistol for a primary, it will be strictly for a secondary weapon. unless someone pisses me off then he will ge tthe rath of this pistol fired 16 times (that is all that the mag holds) into his hairy little arsh. Overall if you are looking for an amazing pistol that shoots extremely hard then this is it."
