The F228, based on the real steel P228 9mm remains the quintessential "fed" gun with several American agencies taking it as their sidearm including the Army Criminal Investigative Division (CID) and Air Force Office of Special Investigations (OSI). It is used by law enforcement and militaries around the world. The P228 is essentially a P226 in a more compact form with a shorter slide and barrel to allow more compact carry options.
Despite its lack of full metal parts, all key components are metal where it counts. This model features a de-cocking lever as well, something not terribly common on Airsoft weapons.
