WARNING: This airsoft handgun has an excessively high muzzle velocity and should never be used as a skirmish sidearm for safety reasons. While it does fire traditional 6mm plastic airsoft ammunition, its intended purpose is for use as a target handgun and we are marketing it for this purpose only.

We were pretty surprised the first time we fired this pistol though the chronograph and once the ringing in our ears had subsided we quickly came to the unanimous decision that this little monster should be deemed the Noisy Cricket. Aside from a thunderous report this little pistol has the power to blow your target into the next galaxy.

It is constructed completely out of metal with the only plastic parts being its cross checkered grips which gives the WG 1911 Compact a hefty weight of 1.7 lbs. Now, this pistol does not have a bunch of bells and whistles and is overall a very basic gun. The hammer does not move and it does not use a detachable magazine. Instead it uses an internal magazine located in the pistols grip. It is accessed by pressing the magazine release button which unlocks the pistols grip which slides to the rear. This might seem a little awkward although after a few tries we found it to be very quick and easy to reload. This basic and simplistic design makes it very reliable and easy to use. An excellent choice for a first target pistol or if you just like ventilating soda cans. Because trust me, this little hellion can punch some holes.

With a muzzle velocity equal to that of most sniper rifles the WG 1911 Compact hits with over 2 joules of kinetic energy and can unleash shots as fast as you can pull the trigger. Due to this high muzzle velocity we only suggest using BBs weighing .27g or heavier if you are engaging targets beyond 25 feet as lighter weight BBs will be unstable and inconsistent at this high of a velocity.

Overall this is a really entertaining handgun for setting up a row of targets and blasting the living daylights out of them. Inexpensive, well built and fun to shoot!

WARNING: Due to inconsistent sizing in other co2 cartridges we strongly advise the use of the co2 cartridges listed below in the recommended items. Problems experienced with other cartridges can or may include failure to fully seat, puncture and or leaking from the mag. Any problems associated with the use of said co2 are not the fault of Shorty USA.

    5 out of 5- Great Little Gun

    This is a great little gun for what I use it for, which is plinking and target shooting. It was insanely powerful, good weight and accurate right out of the box, penetrating both sides of a soda can at 10 meters (approx. 33 feet), aiming dead on. Of course the slide doesn't move, it has no external moving parts and the magazine is built into the grip. It is nicely molded and looks realistic from a distance. If one reads the description and does research before one buys, then one should not expect anything more than what it is, and not be surprised that it isn't. For meeting expectations, five stars.

    3 out of 5- The stupidity of some people amazes me.

    The first thing I want to say, is that I have the full size version of this gun, that has a metal slide, an abs lower body, and a removable 16 round mag. After about 3 months of using my gun, something internal must have broke, because the only way I could fire the gun in double-action was by turning it upside-down and pulling the trigger with my pinky. In an attempt to fix this problem, I unscrewed the two screws on either side of Hammer-end of the slide, and discovered that the metal piece keeping the hammer from entering the slide, had split in two, due to use. I was unable to fix the problem while maintaining my gun's ability to fling plastic, so my gun is now a dust collector that I will show my children.

    The title of this review, is due to some of the other reviews I have read about this compact version. It appears as though some of the people that bought this gun looked at this gun's online picture, and immediately selected, "add to cart". It surprises me that some people write, "I was disappointed to see that there was no removable mag", especially if they bought the gun from this site, where Shorty clearly lists that the gun has an internal mag. It's also funny to me how many people say, "This gun is not very realistic". People. You have paid 50 dollars for a gun with 470 fps. If looks and a moving slide really matter that much, invest AT LEAST 10 dollars more and buy the moving slide version of this gun. And if you want really real realism, buy a $100 blowback. I personally feel that the purpose of reviews is to inform other airsofters of things the website DOESN'T tell them.

    Oh, and just to sum it up, this gun (at least the full size version) performs absolutely amazing with .40 gram bbs. The range is incredible.

    3 out of 5- m1911

    got this gun the other day and right out of the box i was skeptical. the weight of it wasn't too bad but not realistic at all. the gun length is so small. i just wasn't getting my hopes up for anything special. i decided to go out and shoot it some so i opened the grip and noticed that there is no magazine, just an area in which to put the 12 bbs that it can carry and once again was very disappointed. so i loaded it and shot it and this is where the 3 stars came from. the fps is amazing. it definitely seems that the 470 fps listed here is right. all in all if you just want power, not realism or practicality, then this gun is for you.

    5 out of 5- good cheap heavy fun

    this gun is not for collectors, sorry, no moving slide. o well,
    this thing is heavy for a what it is. that's good to me.
    seems though only weak point i can find would be the handle cover may break over time. my fix for that is remove the spring or trim it. ... this gun is the better version of the crossman airmag c11, but better... i like that reloads are fast for me (i have a speed loader). good and accurate with .25 and maybe .2, but .12 go all over the place. that's bad ... like aiming at someone's food and hitting them in the head.

    so to cap it up:

    pro's
    cheap
    fun
    heavy
    intimidating (go with chrome)
    loud - very loud - my friends say it sounds of death
    hits the mark with .25
    can take being dropped

    cons
    sights not adjustable (i didn't need to though)
    sights suck at night
    shouldn't use .12 (trust me)

    5 out of 5- Pretty good

    If you don't care about how realistic this gun is, then it's a great side arm, but if you do care try for something else

    2 out of 5- Not realistic at all

    when i first time i picked up the gun, i first noticed the weight. It has great weight. But it's just not realistic at all. The slide and hammer do not move at all, the slide grip comes off very easy and is hard to get back on. Overall i would not recommend this gun.

    3 out of 5- good... at least for a while

    This gun is very good, at least for the first month or so. when i first opened the box and pulled the gun out i felt i had made a great purchase. then i realized the grip was plastic. also i realized that there was no slide; very unrealistic. this is where i became disappointed. the grip slid out and i realized there was no clip. you load 12 bbs into the grip; the fact that there is no clip makes it very hard to reload. after using the gun for a while my hopes were restored. this gun is very powerful i loved it and would rather use it in wars than my sniper. soon my hopes were crushed once more. the grip broke off making the gun very uncomfortable to use and made it look very unprofessional and even more unrealistic. over all this gun is not very impressive.
