Hi all,

first of all, I am awfully sorry for bringing this old topic out of its grave - but I thought it might be helpful for someone else in the future. (and I rarely come to the US part of the forum, so hadn't seen this topic before)

Got one myself, just the same as the 1st gun pictured. They are excellent replicas, look very nice and are well balanced. First time I took it out of its holster, a mate who used to be an armourer asked me if it was a real one, and even when he handeled it he said it was an impressive repro. Even the sound of the silde is good.

You must be aware though that it will come with an awful orange plastic plug in the barrel - US regulations... :?
However it does not protrude out of the barrel at all, so a bit of matt black paint fixed it very well.

The magazine is very slightly smaller than a real one so you can not load real ammo in it.

Hope this helps, 2 years later... :wink:
Pierre

PS: forgot to say it field-strips like the real thing.
