This full metal gas powered airsoft pistol features blowback action, a double stack magazine, and great performance. The entire frame and slide are made of metal, giving it a very realistic weight and feel. The grips are textured for a secure grip. The gun does have functional thumb and beavertail safeties just like a real govt. model .45. This is a high capa style pistol with a larger, double stack magazine. The magazine holds 25 rounds, which is a big advantage over similar pistols which have a 14 round mag capacity. The gun comes with a green gas magazine, but it is also compatible with high capa Co2 magazines. If you're looking for a high quality gas pistol at a great price this is a very good option.
