more reliable, being a tm. soo many spare parts available, not metal
i can easily get 50meters with mine, the hop up is quite frankly insane.

the we/sg is full metal, metal slides generally make them unreliable, and dont perform as well either
full metal isnt gas efficient either, it takes more gas to move a heavy metal slide than a plastic one which the tokyo marui has- it isnt cheap plastic either, you would think it was metal without touching it

i'd like to get 2 with 2 spare mags at around 300, on redwolf i can get 2 socom gears with mags for 227 including P&P and around 50 VAT, we're looking at around 140 for a gun and spare mag not including P&P or VAT with the tokyo marui's.

i think i'll be going for 2 of these Tokyo Marui MEU Pistol (1911), with spare mags if anybody's got any comments feel free, especially people who've got them.

I have a full metal pistol and it's fine.

I can get almost 60 shots off with one gas fill and it goes at least 40metres, maybe more, I'm not sure what ranges I shoot at, the accuracy and hop up are both great and I even use .25 sometimes.
The reliability is also top notch, to the point where I don't even know what people are talking about when they say metal pistols are unreliable. Though it is a Sig and they're just beastly anyway...

I've never had any plastic guns because to me they drop out on the realism factor but if you're not bothered about that then I guess it doesn't make any difference.

If you're thinking you'll spend more money on gas with a metal one then you could always get a propane adaptor, then you can buy huge canisters of raw propane that last aaaggggeeeess and only cost about 15.

Simples.
