The Armorer Works “MOLON LABE” features a gorgeous imitation battle-worn surface to replicate the battle scarred look of the worlds longest serving sidearm that has served with distinction for over 100 years.
The real steel sidearm has proven to be rugged and reliable due to its timeless design and build quality. The Armorer Works “MOLON LABE” has incorporated each of these qualities into this stunning airsoft weapon. It is amazing to hold. Absolutely rock solid with not even a hint of a wobble or rattle. It’s heavy, the weight and build feel almost the same as a real 1911.
The battle-worn finish really has to be seen in the flesh. It looks well used but not in an over the top way. The worn edges add a sense of ageless duty and rugged purpose. The engravings are precise and clear and exude quality and demonstrate a keen eye for detail. The words “MOLON LABE” are clearly identifiable on the slide and kill marks decorate the other side. As always Armorer Works have added a couple of extra touches such as the serial numbers and 45 ACP on the ejection port. It’s the little things that make the difference to the keen observer, and that’s why these pistols are so highly regarded amongst airsofters.
So how does it shoot? After filling up the timeworn magazine with gas and loading it into the gun, take aim and wow! It feels powerful, the recoil is impressive and will most certainly bring a smile to the operator’s face. Performance is very good, definitely on par with costlier and venerable brands. This gun blows every competitor out of the water in terms of build quality and skirmishing potential. It is an absolute steal in comparison to most other airsoft 1911’s. You’d be mad to not add one to your armoury.
