Default Looking for a good 1911 gas blowback pistol.

I haven't found any 1911 gas blowback pistols for around $100. If y'all could help me that'd be appreciated. I was thinking of just settling with the WE Hi Capa 5.1 Dragon for $80.

The elite force 1911 tac is pretty good. I like it very consistent shots. Co2 so don't have to mess with gas cans(I'm a little bit a lazy and don't like messing with them). The one complaint is not many upgrades options but, but it already shoots pretty good out of the box.

I would stay away from Elite Force and WE.

Elite force pistols are KWC knockoffs. They shoot well at first but crap out within 6 months to a year usually, and the only available parts are the same things that just crapped out. There are basically no upgrades or reinforced parts on the market for them.

WE is super hit and miss. You might get something that performs well, you might get an $80 paperweight. Now, they are TM compatible, with a little adjustment of parts, so they do have that going since there are hundreds of parts available for TM.

My personal suggestion would be to get a KJW. It's 100% TM compatible and shoots like a dream out of the box. It's also equipped to handle both CO2 and Propane, so it's a year round gun, CO2 in winter when it's too cold for Propane and Propane in the summer when it's too hot for CO2. The gun is basically a barbie doll, there are a million ways you can upgrade and customize it to your liking.
