The M1911 pistol, or more commonly referred to as the 1911, is a combat grade firearm widely issued throughout the U.S. military between 1911 to 1985 and is still currently used by some military personnel and law enforcement officers today. Due to its innovative “short recoil” system, high capacity magazine and excellent stopping power, the 1911 was predominately used in both World War I and II as well as the Korean War and Vietnam War. Today, you’ll find these firearms being carried by the LAPD, SWAT, FBI, Marine Force Recon and Delta Force. The 1911 is an excellent weapon, and UHC’s Airsoft replica of the pistol stands to match.
The UHC 1911 spring Airsoft pistol is one of the best spring pistols on the market. Countless Airsoft enthusiasts were introduced to the sport through the purchase of this particular pistol, and almost all were more than satisfied with the product. The UHC 1911 is a full sized replication of the actual firearm. UHC went to great lengths to reproduce all the minute details found on the real pistol. It features an open ejection port to allow BBs to be loaded in manually through the slide as well as easier accessibility for the user to clean or lubricate the gun. The pistol comes with a textured metal trigger, crisscrossed handle to reduce slipping and a highly detailed magazine. It even comes with both the standard thumb safety switch as well as the grip safety switch found behind the handle. Not only does this add to the realism of the gun, it ensures that even if the trigger is pulled the gun will not fire unless you are actually holding the pistol. The gun is very smooth and easy to cock which can drastically increase the number of shots you can fire each minute when compared to some other spring pistols.
As one of the most popular spring pistols available, it is a great item to have for anyone interested in Airsoft. Whether you are a seasoned Airsoft veteran or looking for your first Airsoft gun, you can’t go wrong with the UHC 1911.
