Very realistic 1911 replica. Shoots nice. Dots on sights are way to glossy for me. In situations where lights behind you it's hard to be accurate. Weathered mine, I really like a heavily used looking 1911. Very accurate heavy heavy blowback, probly like a .22? Packaging sucks for this quality of pistol. Please repackage in a box no more clam shells! Yes the grips will interchange with real 1911 grips (with slight modification to grips very easy mod) I used my ergo grips from my taurus.
