    Honestly, save your money. My WE 1911 had very bad gas efficiency and could barely get through an entire magazine. I've never owned a WE G18, some love it some hate it. The outer barrel has broken quite frequently to people I play with.

    Check out the KJW versions of each for a better gun in the same price range.

    I agree, I don't think the KJW 1911 runs well off of C02 though.

    Yeah, but CO2 sucks anyway. Run it with propane/green gas for best results.

    Despite what every body is saying I think you should go with the 1911. It is I would say, a very accurate weapon despite it's CO2 function.

    Get any KJW, as almost every WE weapon I've seen except the G39C has had MAJOR problems that usually require much to repair.

    KJW will last you a long time. I had mine for around 2 years with almost no problems before I traded it.

    But, it'd also be good to save up and get a TM. :p

    It's not good. As a company, WE produces bad guns. They have a high rate od guns that are defective right out of the box, and most of the ones that work work poorly. There are the rare cases of WE guns working well, but the odds are against you getting one. In those rare cases, the guns aren't any better than a KJW or KWA. There's really no reason to buy a WE pistol. Just buy the comparable KJW model. It will perfor better and last longer.

    Hmmm thank you but i thought some guns like the WE luger p08 was a good gun. Is it good? Just want to know a little bit more about that famous gun.

    It's ok. Like all WEs, its nothing special. You'd be better off buying a KJW.

    No, it's not good. I don't know how many ways to say it. WE, as a company, has poor manufacturing practices. The products that come out of their factory don't work well. They're not good. It's that simple.
