I'm looking at getting a Colt M1911A1 as basically a holster filler but I'm struggling to find even a rubber replica on the t'internet. In an ideal world I'd love a de-act but not for the money they're going for.

What can I get?

Neil.

Neil,

I was looking at this site last night

http://www.keystonearsenal.com/shop/?cat=5

or you could try Denix pistols I think SOF sell them

Cheers

Nick

Thanks Nick. Just been looking at Denix M1911's and they look nice. I couldn't see any on SOF's website nor anybody elses in the UK.

Are you in a group?
Do you meet the VCRA requirements?

Nope not yet and I'm aware of the requirements to legally own a replica.

The Denix 1911s are less realistic than many of the airsoft versions that are available for around the same price. I agree with the keystone suggestion, they look pretty good, and are a decent price.

Then who will sell you a replica until you meet those requirements?
You certainly cant get one imported from the USA.
I hate to harp on but get your defense sorted before you think about buying.

Like I said in my original post, I'm looking to buy not intending to buy. I just want to know my options and roughly what kind of price I need to spend when I'm eventually ready.
