    Alright,
    After much thinking and many questions on this forum i came to a conclusion of two pistols. I want a pretty much solid airsoft pistol and really the price difference between those two is a great one. Although the MEU is TM and is more expensive the EF 1911 TAC is said to be one of the best 1911s out there.Can you guys tell me your opinions on this?

    I'd suggest you grab a TM 5.1 over their MEU, for a bigger bb and gas capacity. Between the two, TM master race.

    If you can do the 2011 style fat grip, go hicapa. If you want 1911 single stack, perhaps the co2 kjw. Easier support in getting parts direct from kjw vs sourcing kwc parts for the ef1911

    Go TM, all the way. The EF is kinda nice but the TM is way nicer.

    TM by a mile. I wouldn't trust an EF as far as I could throw it.

    Coming from someone that's run a used Elite Force 1911a1 for two or three years, with no failures until a this past fall (hopup wheel jammed), I'm still inclined to agree with Shady on this one.

    The 1911 mags just don't hold much gas capacity, which means it will not empty the mag on cold days. The Hi-Capa has a reservoir almost twice as big, so the problem is not as evident

    Well, if you live in a cold climate all the BBs won't shoot out. It's pretty annoying. Pistol has less upgrades and costs more. MEU is good. Go for a hi Capa if you ask me
