Sweet looking .45, but is it a good pistol?

    While that is a decent gun, there are a lot better handguns out there for the money. KWA makes some excellent GBBs for around that price. For $160ish you can purchase this: KWA Full Metal M1911DS PTP Airsoft Gun by: KWA - Airsoft GI - Welcome
    The SOCOM gear gun is made by WE, and WE has been known to have reliability issues in the past. I don't know what you're looking for in a 1911 cosmetically, but I think the KWAs are much better looking guns than the WE, having seen the two guns next to each other in person.

    Recently aquired a Army Armament MEU 1911, silver Springfield and it is all metal and looks identical to my Springfield Champion I carried back home. I can say it is very accurate at 20-30 ft, but haven't tried it further yet, and haven't had it long enough to quote reliability, but great looker and feel! Also it has the blowback slide and lock open function. Price was about $90
