The slide can be taken off by removing the slide lock, just like the real gun.
You can see the rubber bands through the ejection port.
First-person shooter. I figured something other than a white background would spice things up a little bit.
This was inspired by Chris K (and a bunch of other M1911s, but his in particular).
Yeah, I know I just built one of these, but this one is so much better. It actually looks somewhat respectable. Features: working slide, slide lock, and hammer. Some of my favorite things about it: it doesn't look horrible. It's actually quite sturdy. The slide works wonderfully smoothly. Some things I'm not the most pleased about: the trigger guard is quite flimsy. The trigger doesn't work (it's not as much fun running around the house going "pew pew" without a trigger to pull). Overall, I'm really pleased with it. I had a lot of fun building it.
