The 1911 is truly a timeless classic which has been in production for nearly a century. WE Tech has done a wonderful job recreating this famous handgun as their latest edition to their gas blow back line up. As a introductory offer WE Tech is including a spare magazine with your 1911 so you will get TWO magazines.

Construction: Full metal construction gives the M1911 Government an extremely realistic heft and balance. This is a must have for any 1911 enthusiast, reenactor or collector. The dimensions of the WE 1911 are so close to the real thing you can even put real steel 1911 grips, guide rods and other real steel accessories on it. If you take a close look at this gun you will notice that WE Tech paid great attention to detail when making this model. Even the safety switch and slide lock have textured surfaces for no-slip operation.

Performance: One thing that sets this beauty apart from the rest of the handguns on the market is that it is consistently accurate even at longer ranges. This has a lot to do with the WE Tech 1911 having an unbelievably smooth trigger that would put some real steel competition pistols to shame. Pulling the trigger takes hardly any hand movement so your barrel stays on target shot after shot.

WARNING!!
When loading this pistols magazine be careful not to release the spring so that the follower slams against the top of the magazine. This can cause the follower to break as well as damaging the lips of the magazine which will not be covered under warranty.

    5 out of 5- Need help

    ok, i'm going to contrast some different things here:

    ---WE-tech m1911 government:
    Pros:
    *freaking accuracte at 130ft.(w/o being bench restedl)....it'll hit Directly where you aim!
    *fps is good with top gas(350fps)
    *feel.....AMAZING.....think of "day of defeat:source"....it feels real!
    *amazing detail just like shorty said....detail on the smallest of things
    *2 MAGS!!!!

    cons:
    *blowback....not the blowback itself, but the fact that you HAVE to use top gas
    *CANT USE EXTREME GAS!!!
    *cant think of anything else
    *low mag cap

    ---KJW M9 Tac-Edition:
    pros:
    *Hurts ALOT at about 75-100 feet(using extreme gas)
    *somewhat accurate...
    *good trigger pull
    *crisp blowback
    *ok range.....not 130.....it's actually about 80-100ft

    cons:
    *accuracy...you lose your target easily(due to blowback)
    *either you like the grip or you hate it
    *not much else


    ---KJW Special agent m600
    pros:
    *Good accuracy, no blow back....so you dont lose your target
    *apparently can be used with a silencer, dont know which one though(i think hfc full metal with the multiple threads)
    *fps is good (360fps)
    *accuracy.........just ok(at 130ft: 5 shots, BENCH RESTED, 4in. groupings
    *no blowback

    cons:
    *accuracy....i guess
    *no blowback(either good or bad)
    *it is COMPACT.....smaller than you think....
    *barell isn't long enough for accuracy over long distance
    *is freaking loud without silencer(dont know what it's like with)

    ---We-tech dragon 2
    Pros:
    *Accurate(not as much as the m1911 government)to 90 feet(measured)
    *cool design
    *good sights, can acquire target quickly
    *good mag cap

    cons:
    *takes to much gas
    *either like it or hate it(design)
    *i really.....really....really dont like the split-slide design





    ALL-IN-ALL, go with the We-tech m1911 government. it might not look as stylish as teh dragons or the hi-capa's.....but it has GREAT accuracy,Good enough power to still hurt at long ranges(130ft), and it just is a better gun than teh others!

    4 out of 5- Nice option

    Okay, so if your looking into this gun your probably a fan of the classic 1911. That's actually the main reason I got this gun. I looked all over the place for an affordable and inexpensive Colt 1911, from the KWC spring guns, to the HFC NBBs. None of them were what I was really looking for; I felt that I had "graduated" past spring guns and cheaper guns, but in no way was I going to spend $250 on an ABS pistol that uses a more expensive gas and shoots at 240fps. Then I heard about this guy on another site and I said to myself "As soon as Shorty gets this I'm gonna buy it." A couple of hours later I saw that they did have it and a few more hours after that I bought it. Okay, so here's the review:

    The power is not outstanding, but it will hold its own. Its not as much as Shorty has listed, because the KJW M9 is also listed as shooting at 300fps and will almost go through a can and where the WE1911 will go through one side and leave a much smaller dent on the other side. I don't believe in the whole "Poor Man's Chrono", but I do think that cans are an effective way of
    comparing muzzle velocities. I also forgot that I left a bit gas in the mag for the seals and that I irresponsibly left some bbs in the mag. I was looking at the gun and shoot myself in the tip of my forefinger! It hurt as if though I closed a door on my fingertip and it was numb for 20
    minutes. The blowback is nice, not unlike the WE Dragon, but not as heavy. The blowback is also a little slow, by no means sluggish but still not the fastest.

    Now here's where the gun has some of its brightest moments. Accuracy is decent as I got an estimated 1 foot (very small) of deviance at a measured 100ft. I haven't adjusted the hop up [I usually keep it off because it decreases velocity and wears out and I typically shoot at no more than 20 feet in my basement] but the gun still shoots around the distance said above. The smooth trigger isn't going to help as much as you might think, but it does make a difference because you don't need to "jerk" the trigger, you just need to tap it. Unless of course you wanted the best accuracy for single shot target shooting, then you should squeeze the trigger.

    This gun is built fairly nicely, the metal is smilier feeling to that on other WE guns. The blowback cylinder is plastic as is the loading nozzle assembly, and the rest of the gun's parts are metal. I do have a major complaint; the paint scratches very easily. I noticed this on the first day of use when I had silver marks all over the place. I don't have any ideas on how to fix this besides touching them up with a sharpie or a paint pen, but this is very visible. The other option is to simply repaint the whole gun, but that has its obvious drawbacks. The slide and barrel have a slight rattle, as well as the magazine, but not enough to effect the performance. As a matter of fact, the slide is very smooth, and it got better with some lubing. I haven't had any leaks with the mags at all, and they don't look like like I will have any problems either.

    The gun's safety lever is very difficult to put on, but on the plus side its remarkably easy to take off. It might just be a matter of breaking it in. The sights are also a large problem. Any one with less than perfect eyesight will have difficulty using them, but there is an easy solution for that; don't use them. Any good shooter will be able to hit a target with
    instinctive shooting, and using the sights allows for human error to kick in. I was actually considering getting another one of these to dual wield ala Bruce Willis style. My try out tests were great fun but I unfortunately couldn't get any accuracy. The best I could do was a bullet spread, and then it came time to reload. I could no longer effectively catch and grasp new mags to put in. I still felt and looked cool though. Moving on, I really can't hold the 1911 comfortably, the grips seem to wide at the center of the grips side and there is no notch for your thumb, so you need to turn it or rest it above the safety. The grip safety is also a big pain in the palm (
    pun intended) but it works, and it does help a bit. My brother has rather small hands and he said it was comfortable, while I have large hands so I don't know. I also have a bit of difficulty holding this gun with 2 hands, it would figure that the one gun that could benefit from a recurved triggergaurd dosen't have it. Now, the magazines work wonderfully. They hold enough gas for 1-1.5 mags worth of bbs, and not holding alot of gas carries the benefit of less cool-down and quick warm-up. You can also rapid fire through a whole mag's worth of bbs without problem. Try that with a double stack GBB.

    I don't know about any mods with this gun, I heard that it can take some WA or TM stuff, but I also heard that this was false. I am however going to buy a pair of real steal wood grips,
    and I'm also going to make a set of my own. Besides that, not much to do.
    I thought for this review I'd list the pros and cons:



    PROS:

    Inexpensive and cost effective 1911 option
    Comes with extra magazine
    Decent performance
    Nice looking
    Great mags
    Built well

    Cons:
    Poor paint durability [scratches easily]
    Somewhat uncomfortable grip
    Does have a bit of rattle from loose fitting slide and magazine
    Not many upgrade options



    Overall, if you want a 1911 but don't want to spend $250 on a gun that needs to be imported, get this. If you want a great cost effective gun that shoots outstandingly, spend more dough and get something better. If you want a gun in the same price range get the KJW M9 with an extra mag. In my opinion, this is WE's best gun yet.

    P.S. Shorty USA editor guy, please get someone to make a video on how to field strip the WE 1911. It took me an hour to figure out how to get this thing to come apart because of the poorly written instructions.

    5 out of 5- Beasty GBB

    I swear this thing is an exact copy of the WA M1911. It feild strips very easily. just push out the pin that hold the slide catch. The WA has a bit more kick to it and the mag cap is a bit higher. It isn't a gas hog like MAC-11's and M93R's are which is nice. It shoots accuratly and has good range for a pistol. low profile sights make it really accuarte. dont put your face too close to it though. I'm sure all of us forgot it wasn't and AEG or NBB and got it in the face with the slide.

    5 out of 5- Ŧhis Gun has it Up's and Down's.....

    This gun is made by W.E. so I expected it to be a fine work of craftmenship. And I was right. My friend has a real version of the 1911, which I am a big fan of...and the airsoft replica is just about a perfect replica of the real firearm. (other than the orange tip) Now the performence is great: The power of this gun is great for a sidearm and the range is good enough to be used as a primary. The all metal body gives it a strong, forceful blowback, while the life-like wooden grips make it all the more realistic. But of course, no gun is perfect....the accuracy is rather rubbish at times and the clips arent the best thing in the world. Nothing wrong with this firearm at all. If you have the money, I would reccomend you look into this.

    4 out of 5- Wow

    Wow. I'm in an awe-instated shock. Here's the story. I own a UTG AK-47 Commando, and the day my friend told me he could beat me with his pistol, I just kind of stared at him for a minute, then literally fell out of my seat laughing (detention of course). The day I played him, I realized he was dangerously close to being correct. After about an hour and a half of playing, I was running out of ammo. He didn't have any clue about this change in events. The next time I saw him reloading, I snuck within four feet of him, aimed my AK at is A$$ and asked him nicely to surrender (Pulled out my last four shots into him) It took the longest time in which I was praying he would, since the last four shots I fired were it for me. He did, even though he had ammo, he was not aware I was empty. I was soo relieved, and I told him what happened. He decided to cap me in the stomach. The mark has been there for more than a week now. (Ouch) I wouldn't buy this unless it was for some kind of reenactment or movie and I had enough money though since it is so expensive.

    -Hope this helped!!!!
