There are a plethora of 2011 style competition pistols on the market. Many of them are fine competition guns, but they lack the rugged durability and dependability of a solid, reliable duty or personal defense weapon. Seeing this gap in the market, and already well known for making high performance, rugged weapon systems, Salient Arms set to work producing a double stack 1911 that could clean up at the competition range and defend your home or protect your life in the field. The end result of years of research was the Salient Arms DS 2011 pistol. Precision machined with a form follows function attitude the SAI DS was manufactured for no other purpose in mind then to fill the needs of the hardcore shooting enthusiast. Equipped with aggressive front and rear slide serrations, milled lightening cuts on both side of the slide and aggressive competition style sights the SAI DS clearly is a pistol designed for shooters by shooters. As with all of their products, Salient Arms rewrote the rules of 2011 style pistols when they manufactured the DS, forging a new trail and leaving old conventions behind, the end result is a pistol that functions in the harshest conditions, under the heaviest of stresses and provides service you can stake your life on.

EMG has extended their collaboration with the Salient Arms and is proud to release the Salient Arms x EMG DS 2011 collaboration Airsoft Training pistol. Manufactured with an eye to detail the EMG SAI DS 2011 is CNC machined from aluminum alloy and features all of the trademarks of a Salient Arms pistol, incuding: a titanium nitride style barrel, competition style sights with fiber optic front insert, ambidextrous safety and, of course, stamped Salient Arms International rollmarks. Utilizing the Tokyo Marui Hi-Capa gas system, the Salient Arms / EMG DS pistol can be upgraded from a wide pool of available parts and components, ensuring easy repair and maintenance and years of reliable service.

"Ok so first off this is my first Gas Blow Back pistol.

I won this in the Players Choice box of Awesomeness, and I have to say it preforms as well as I could expect. The Gas mags have a good solid feel to them and they hold gas very well usually there's enough left in the mag for 3-4 additional shots.

One caviot, WE Hicapa mags DO fit, but you will need to modify the base plate on the in order for them to slide in enough to fully lock in place.

"The pistol looks really nice, the material used to build this pistol is awesome. Very sturdy, heavy.

Although I love how it looks, the performance did not impress me.

Trigger wobbles side to side and rate of fore was very slow, even my $100 1911 shot better then this $180 pistol.

Lastly, the mags could not hold any gas I only shot 1/2 mag each time and gas was gone.

I had to return it and got a refund, maybe I got a lemon but will not buy again.
I will be buying the kwa atp se

"Came on time and was very well presented, well wrapped.

Pros:
Solid weight
Little to no shakiness
Fiber optic sights
Ambidextrous safety
Crisp trigger
Blowback is 10/10


Cons:
Heavy
Doesn't fit most 1911 holsters and will fall out of cloth holsters.
Came with a leaky mag that could not be fixed.

Conclusion:
Amazing weapon, just wish it hadn't come with a leaky mag, as the magazines for sale are $30 plus shipping. However, I can see myself using this for years to come!
