This is a full metal professional training pistol made by KWA. KWA is well known for making excellent gas blowback pistols and this is a shining example of their work. The M1911 MK II Tactical features a built in tactical rail on the lower frame which makes it easy to add accessories such as a laser or flashlight. The slide has cocking serrations on the front and back for a more secure grip when cocking the gun. It also has a textured grip and a three hole trigger. This is a blowback pistol which means that the slide shoots back with each shot, replicating the function of a real pistol and adding a slight recoil. The blowback on the gun is very crisp and the gun is also very gas efficient. The included magazine is a single stack 14 round magazine. The magazine release button is located on the left side of the gun. Just like the real 1911 this gun has a thumb safety and a beaver tail safety. This means that the gun can not be fired unless properly gripped with the beavertail safety depressed. If you're looking for a top-of-the-line 1911 you can't go wrong with this pistol.
