An M1911 pattern gas pistol, the metal fixed slide allows for simpler, cheaper, easier maintenance in terms of complications and cost. It feel much like a 1911 albeit one with a double action trigger and fixed slide with a distinctly heavy trigger pull.
For its short comings, its 390fps power out of the box does not leave wanting and its 14 round capacity magazine is not a lot but it is not far off the real steel either. Shooting is clean, consistent and accurate; a recurring feature of CO2 weapons with their large gas reservoirs feeding a very powerful, stable supply of gas pressure. That said, this weapon is full auto which allows for a an impressive spike in firepower when needed at the cost of less consistent power and accuracy as well as a thirstier demand for ammo.
For function over form, the CO2 weapon offers a pistol which looks good enough, handles well and shoots like a nasty little creature all with great bang for the buck.
