Full description

Description

Golden Eagle's GBB pistol range represents a new precedent when it comes to value for money, offering full metal Tokyo Marui clone designs with surprising build quality, high quality finishes and great performance. This is the classic 1911 pistol, the granddaddy of practically all modern pistol designs and the winner of two world wars...so far! The 1911 is one of those designs that anyone can hold and feel perfectly at home with, and that's no surprise as this pistol quite literally defined the shape, layout and ergonomics of the semi-automatic handgun design.

One of the most stand-out features of the Golden Eagle 1911 becomes clear when you check out the colour options available for this bad boy. Naturally, tactical black is an option and is the most affordable; perfect for WW2 or Vietnam War re-enactors and matching the real thing to a tee. The other finish options take a walk on the wild side with a highly polished mirror finish in both striking chrome silver and gangster gold; great for those who like to show some personality when they skirmish!

Starting at the front of the slide we can find the front iron sight blade, which is a simple and fixed design meaning a no amount of bumping and shaking will have your sights walk out of alignment. The fixed iron sights are also period accurate to the original 1911, and given the age of the design of the real pistol, we are lucky we have sights at all! Another benefit of this type of sight is the low snag nature; the lack of adjustability means less to snag on and a smoother draw from your holster when it is sidearm time.

Due to the 1911's extremely instinctive design, holding this pistol gives you the feeling you have held it before, with the sights being easy to align and large enough to be easy to acquire, and all the controls falling right under your fingers, right where they should be.

Moving rearwards, we can find the mock ejection port, through which the chrome-finished metal outer barrel is visible. The outer barrel has 11mm CW female threads at the tip, meaning if you want to ruin this absolute classic of a pistol with a modern tracer unit or suppressor, you can do it! The rear of the slide features serrations on both sides to ensure the shooter has a solid grip when cocking the pistol, regardless of the weather conditions.

As we move rearwards we can find the slide release catch, which has checkering on the upper surface to ensure it can be operated when wet or in adverse weather. Likewise, the magazine release is textured and is right where you expect to find it, well within reach of your thumb whilst firing, on the left side of the grip.

The front face of the trigger also includes checkering and is of a straight travel (aka straight back) design, similar to its descendant, the Hi-capa. This allows for a consistent and accurate trigger pull, taking pure advantage of the light and short pull of a 1911 trigger. The safety lever can be found on the left side of the frame and sits comfortably under the shooter's thumb, perfect for cocked and locked carry. This safety lever is of a period-accurate design, with no extensions or other silly modern bits, and works just great the way it is.

On the rear of the pistol's frame, we have what is known as a beavertail grip safety; a hallmark feature of the 1911 allowing it to get away with a super short trigger pull and still be safe by disconnecting the trigger until the pistol is gripped fully and properly. The beavertail safety ensures the trigger cannot be inadvertently pressed when drawing from a holster, which can be quite a painful experience!

Just above the grip safety, we come to the hammer which is the appropriate "Spur" hammer design to match the real WW2 era 1911 pistol. The spur hammer allows you to cock the pistol by pulling the hammer back more easily, and while this isn't really useful for Airsoft it is still great fun to play with and makes the GE 1911 a great movie prop.

The polymer Faux wooden grips have effective diamond checkering to ensure this pistol doesn't slip out of your hands during wet weather and are the correct shape and style for the old-school WW2/Korean War/Vietnam era 1911. At the bottom of the frame, behind the magazine well we have a lanyard loop, an extremely useful feature that allows you to retain your pistol even if it slips out of your holster. A lanyard loop can be the difference between losing your pistol after a long crawl in the woods and having that feeling of relief when you realise it has followed you!

On the inside, the Golden Eagle 1911 is fully Tokyo Marui compatible which is great news for those of us who cannot touch an Airsoft gun without upgrading it. As it comes, GE saw fit to include a 6.02mm tightbore inner barrel, providing a slight raise in FPS, improved accuracy and slightly better gas efficiency than a standard 6.08 bore barrel. For the price of this pistol, this is quite the surprise, as is the smooth feel of the slide and the impressive consistency when put on the chronograph. When rapid fired, the FPS will drop as it does with any GBB pistol but if shot carefully you will be as surprised as we were!

Whether you are looking for a base gun to upgrade or you want an affordable holster filler that doesn't compromise on build quality or performance, the Golden Eagle 1911 is a fine choice. For both the sensible reenactor or the type who wants to stand out, the selection of truly awesome finishes for these pistols has your needs thoroughly covered!
