WE 1911 Tactical

Recommended Posts

To relate with dark, mine is pumping around 330-340 on chrono on warm days. I was really suprised to find that it was shooting pretty hot.



Yo sharp.


Anyway, I thought the review was nice. I'm suprised that a GBB is shooting that hot. I've also heard these things lasting a while. It seems like WE has improved their quality.

interestingly... the problem seems to have solved itself!


Maybe I should just spritz the valve with a bit of silicone oil. Might have stuck under the stresses of combat.

I guess there is the possibility that the two pieces can screw & unscrew.


Problem is, if it is loose, it could unscrew again.

i'd like to add that the "new" mags that came with the desert tac work much better in the 1911tac than the 1911tac's mags did.

i have a standard 1911 mag too(the flat base plate style) which works much better too.

again this could be due to a re-design on WE's part. or maybe just a good build day in the factory...

Am i the only one that's had frankly terrible experiences with WE colts?


MEU - Outer barrel failed, and the slide now sticks on the ejection port every time. Same thing happened to a friends tactical (same as reviewed), and his second one is now starting to develop the same fault. Anyone able to shed some light on this, or did we just get a bad batch?

There does seem to be something weird about the mags of the 1911 Tactical. They work fine in my 1911 but they won't fire a full mag in the Tactical. Normal 1911 mags (flat baseplate) work fine in the Tactical.


Love them both, it's just a shame that they don't like the cold. Will be treating myself to a WE Hicapa 4.3 soon, might even test out the co2 mags for it.
