Quality was nice

I just picked up this M1911 and the only issue I found so far was the paint wears off easily, I took the mag out almost 3 times and you could already see some white streaks starting to appear, other than that the build quality, and feel is very nice.

Quality replica

I purchased the gun as a replica only with no intention of firing the gun. I was actually shocked at the quality of the piece. It has a nice weight and balance with great attention to detail. It's all metal replica aside from the grips which are very nice regardless. I would highly recommend this replica with no reservations. The gun was shipped the next day and packaged very well so I am also pleased with the great service.

KWC 1911 - FTW

Purchased for rec use and simulation training//MAG SIZE: 17 ROUNDSRANGE: 21 FT - 17/17 - Effective grouping sizes of 10+RANGE: 15FT (86% Pistol ENGAGE RAGE) - 17/17 - Grouping sizes of .5 -> 1 inchCOMBAT RELOAD: 1.8s - 1 mag (Staring mag 8 Rounds, Final Mag 17 Rounds)This weapon has a fast action, heavy action, and very well timed movements. This weapon feels like the REAL DEAL. with no actual markings it clearly lack the license for the colt 1911. However, for 199.99 you can not beat this weapons accuracy and value. Extra mags only 49.99 - you can store 17 rounds per mag, giving you effective fire support at 25Ft or less!KWC you make on heck of a weapon! Than you!

Did I get a lemon?

I've had this pistol for a month now. While it has functioned properly so far, there are some major quality issues that affect the appearance of an otherwise fine pistol. The most serious is that the slide and the frame have different paint colour and finish: The frame's paint finish is slightly darker and smoother than the slide! It almost appears as if the slide and the frame came from different guns. I contacted Replica Airguns about this and even sent them photos to back up my claim, but they did not accept this as a manufacturing defect because the gun still works. This is a major disappointment. I certainly did not expect this kind of quality issue in a gun at this price point. Another thing with this pistol is that it came with a silver outer barrel that is threaded. This may look good on a modern version of the 1911 but does not match the classic World War II style of this pistol. Overall, I'm not happy with the purchase. A summary of the pros and cons follows.PROS- No "KWC MADE IN TAIWAN" markings (main reason I bought from this site)- No jams or malfunctions so far- Accuracy seems decentCONS- Slide and frame have different colour and finish (major irritant)- Slide has some wobble on frame- Some contours on slide not smooth (mold issue?)- Noticeable gap between slide and frame- Loading BBs into magazine is painful (literally)- Rough threaded muzzle- Paint wears easily
