    All my current air pistols are sort of high end. This looks like fun. Got to get one or two. Good review by the way.

    Hmm...

    I do like the looks of 1911 grips without any screws on them... I wonder if that can somehow be done in a real gun!

    But for about $40 more than what this costs, you can buy a GI-style 1911 airsoft, complete with a metal frame, slide and outer barrel... of course it will shoot plastic pellets, but all safeties will work and it will fit in a 1911 holster, too.

    Where?

    Plastic well-detailed airsoft 1911s typically retail for $100 to $200 here in the U.S. A full metal one would probably cost quite a bit more. Europe seems to get a lot more and better airsoft stuff than we see in the U.S.

    But my favorite, for $109, is this, since it has decent sights.

    WE (Weitech?) 1911s are actually licenced Tokio Marui clones, made in Hong-Kong, I believe. John tested a widebody 1911 offering from them a while back.

    Things have changed, I guess. A couple or three years ago, when we initiated the Airsoft Project here at M1911.ORG, we were getting all-plastic 1911s (highly detailed, but all plastic) that retailed for $200, and it was virtually impossible to find metal ones.

    These cheaper airsofts have only been gathering popularity recently, and they don't always have the same brandname.
