SOCOM Gear has created yet another magnificent 1911 with the officially licensed Novak Next. Novak is well known in the firearms industry for producing custom gun sights and aftermarket upgrade parts to trick out 1911ís as well as other semi autos. Now this great West Virginian company has granted SOCOM Gear with the license to produce an official airsoft replica of one of their awesome pistols!
In true SOCOM Gear fashion they have taken an ordinary WE 1911 and outfitted it with an aluminum slide which is stronger and lighter than standard alloy WE slides. This gives the pistol a snappier recoil and improved gas efficiency. Its slide features both fore and aft serrations and is laser etched with Novak trademarks. The G10 grips have a unique diagonal pattern and a tapered channel for easier access to the magazine release button. Set into the center of each grip is a metal medallion bearing the Novak emblem in fine detail. Other features included a 14mm CCW threaded barrel tip, commander hammer, checkered recoil spring plug, checkered mainspring housing and front strap, checkered slide lock lever and safety switch, .45 ACP stamped breech, extended beavertail grip safety, lanyard ring and white dot combat sights. Every external part found on this gun is metal with the exception of the grips.
Just like the preceding 1911 models from SOCOM Gear, the Novakís muzzle velocity is a healthy 300 fps with a .2g BB and is effective out to a range of 130 feet. With a high grade brass inner barrel and adjustable hop-up system these pistols are very accurate and can be used with a wide range of BB weights ranging from high velocity .2g all the way up to heavy weight .28g for the most accuracy.
Included with the Novak Next is a HSS Gear Tactical Retention Lanyard and Operators Manual (the Novak Next comes with a MEU manual. Both pistols function exactly the same so the manual is accurate to both models.)
