Trigger Pull: Very nice in both single and double action. The Elite IA has a surprisingly lightweight double action trigger. It will be shooting primarily in single action as the blowback precocks the hammer with each shot.
Accuracy: I shot from 20 feet out in semi-rested position and was able to place 10 rounds in a 2 to 2.5 inch grouping. The Beretta Elite IA shot well-centered also but just a hair under center mass. It got right around the 330-350 FPS mark (5 shot average chrony testing). This blowback airsoft gun should be able to hit 366+ FPS in the right shooting conditions.
Build Quality: I was extremely impressed with the build quality of this KJ Works airsoft gun, the fit and finish is the best I have seen on any of my guns including airguns. Even after shooting several magazines worth of BBs, the painted metal friction areas did not seem to show nearly as much wear as some of my other blowback guns. The tolerances between the moving parts like the slide and frame are very tight, showing excellent workmanship and machining.
Realism: This KJ Works is based on the real steel version of the Beretta pistol. The Elite IA has licensing which is a plus.
Comments: I guess you get what you pay for, this KJ Works airsoft gun does fetch a bit of a high price but when you take it out of the box and really look at them closely you can see why. It is pretty much flawless and the fit and tolerances are very good with very little play in the mechanical parts. Shooting this gun is just as wonderful, it worked very well and got consistent accuracy and FPS between shots. There were no ammo loading problems and no unexpected behaviors. If you can afford to pay that little bit more for one of these very high quality KJ Works blowback airsoft guns, you will not be let down!
