KJ Works offers an ideal, low-cost solution to owning a full metal blowback gun. The MEU 1911 is a single stack pistol with major external modifications. It features after-market grip safeties, a rounded hammer, ambidextrous thumb safeties, improved high-visibility sights, Pachmayr style rubber grips, front cocking-serrations, and improved stainless steel Wilson Combat type magazine.
This Full Metal version comes with a gas system that utilizes a new lightweight piston that increases the weapon cycle rate which provides for a crisp and realistic blow back action. The frame and slide of the MEU M1911 are constructed from high quality alloy and made to a 1:1 ratio of the real firearm it replicates. The only non-metal part is the rubber grips.
The frame offers a standard Picatinny rail segment that allows the attachment of lights, lasers, etc. Instead of the fixed iron sights, this model offers removable modern sights that bear white dots for faster target acquisition. The slide safety is ambidextrous and enlarged that makes handling way more comfortable than the traditional 1911s. The Pachmayr style rubber grips wrap around the frame and creates a more stable platform.
When you pick up the gun from the box, one is struck by two things: firstly, thanks to the all metal livery, it feels pretty weighty, second, you feel how solid it is. There is hardly any play in the slide, and it makes a nice metallic "clank" as the slide action is cycled. The fully adjustable Hop Up mechanism is located inside the slide. It may be reached by removing the slide from the frame and locating the adjusting wheel on the base of the barrel. The magazine capacity is 25 BBs which the highest one available for the pistols replicating the signle stack series of the 1911 models. Depending on the gas used the pistol will shoot around 320 FPS.
The M1911 is a single-action, semi-automatic, magazine-fed, recoil-operated pistol chambered for the .45 ACP cartridge, which served as the standard-issue sidearm for the United States Armed Forces from 1911 to 1985. It was first used in later stages of the Philippine-American War, and was widely used in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. The MEU(SOC) pistol, officially designated the M45 MEUSOC, is based on the original M1911 design by John Browning, and has been the standard-issue side arm for the Force Recon Element of the United States Marine Corps' Marine Expeditionary Units since 1985.
