Bought mine about a month ago have over 1500 rounds through it. Eats every kind of ammo. I have also seen them with a lot of extras. I really don't have any negative to give to you. Hope this helps.

Yeah, ditto....
Have had mine almost a year now. Love it.
It is picky with some ammo though. It does not like hp ammo as good as round nose (fmj) ammo.

I've had mine for 2 1/2 yrs. Changed a bunch of stuff. Love it and it eats anything I put in it so far.

I've had mine since they came out. No issues and it eats everything I've fed it.

I am looking to get another 1911-22 but this time I'm going with the Colt/Umarex/Walther version. It breaks down like a real 1911.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

When you get the Colt give us a comparison of the two.

Now that is a beautiful gun. Simple roll marks, great sights, and it's a Colt. Not a fan of FCS but the tight lines are nice, The ones on STI are horrid (for example) but they make a good gun. The DE is a great 1911 for the money but the roll mark is a BILLBOARD. Anyway congrats on a new Colt.
PS love that hammer on that one.

I've had mine for a while. I have had a few issues but nothing big. I shoot steel challenge with it and love it. This guy has a bunch of cool parts for the GSG.
