Our take: WellFire's M1911-A1 is a fine example of what WellFire is capable of as an Airsoft manufacturer, and is a strong reason to be optimistic about the future of the sport of Airsoft. In manufacturing this M1911-A1, they have solidified their role as bringing high grade Airsoft to the market at low, reasonable prices.
The build quality on this pistol is superb, and the biggest advantage to this gun has got to be its weight and sheer realism. It is on par with the best pistols on the market, and is on the TOP of the food chain in terms of spring pistols. Quality constructed with metallic internal components and a heavyweight polymer frame, the Ultra-Grade M1911-A1 is built to perform as well as it feels.
This pistol is powerful, shooting at up to 285 FPS (feet per second) using 0.12g seamless BBs with an effective range of over 75 feet! These performance figures are simply shocking for a SPRING pistol, let alone one for under $50. Add on a functional safety in the traditional M1911 fashion, and you've got a real winner in terms of both performance and value.
The pistol also features a railed frame, allowing it to be compatible for all standard weaver/20mm mounts. With the railed frame, the M1911A1 from WellFire eagerly accepts attachments such as lasers, tactical flashlights, and more, with a quick and easy attachment onto the rail.
From the high grade components to the realistic feel, this pistol is definitely a great buy, especially at Airsoft Megastore's guaranteed lowest price.
