WE was made famous with the introduction of the full metal Hicapa models. These are based on the real steel STI pistols, which were designed for competition use.
The WE Hi-Capa 5.1 M has a metal slide, a metal frame and a textured polymer grip. It is essentially a double stacked 1911; the breakdown and the operation remain about the same.
The model is entirely made out of metal, for the slide, frame and barrel. The only polymer part is the polymer grips.
This model bears a Picatinny rail milled into the body, making it ready to accept tactical attachments such as sights or lasers.
The rear sight is adjustable to every direction (up, down, left and right).
The safety mechanism is ambidextrous and can be flipped on when the pistol is armed.
Finally, the skeleton hammer and the lightened trigger add a beautifull touch to the whole design.
The pistol works with Gas stored in the magazine and uses a Semi Automatic function.
The adjustable Hop Up system is located at the base of the barrel and the user must remove the slide in order to gain access to it.
The internal upgraded parts include reinforced recoil spring, hammer spring, firing pin, extreme high flow valve.
Its metal magazine stores 30 BBs and is compatible with every Hicapa model out there.
