The 1/6th scale market is booming, and the accuracy and detail are rising
as I type this. Who knows just how far the bar will go, but this die
cast M1911 pistol is certainly a cut above most of the product out
now. The tiny .45 comes with two clips, and even has a spring loaded
action! Slide it back, just as you would to chamber that first
round, and it pushes back the hammer.
I picked this up from Reasonable Collectibles for
around $13 plus shipping. That's the best deal I was able to find,
and the folks there are always prompt and courteous.
On the down side, the hammer doesn't actually lock in place, and you
can't pull any trigger. The metal clips don't have the bullets
showing at the top, something we've become accustomed to with Dragon and
21st Century weapons.
The details on this weapon are fantastic. The checkered grips
sport a little tiny Colt on either side, and the level of accuracy is
excellent. The die cast metal has a nice heft to it, and the sliding
mechanism is smooth.
