Spring-powered airsoft guns have a reputation for reliability & solid shot velocities. The Umarex Red Jacket 1911 airsoft pistol has these qualities along with a functional hammer & safety for added realism. The pistol features a functional slide, a 12 rd magazine and a shot velocity of 300-325 fps (using .12g BBs). The textured plastic grips let you fire smoothly without worrying about the gun slipping out of your hand between shots. This gun has very few breakable components that inhibit proper firing and is a great sidearm choice on the battlefield. Recommended for anything from backyard plinking to light airsoft skirmishes. Must be manually cocked for each shot.
