"this is a great value pistol that will be a formidable and reliable sidearm" - Airsoft International Volume 11 Issue 4
SPS was founded as Arms manufacturers in 1996. After 15 years in the market of High Competition Pistols, continuing with the effort to improve, they introduced their new Range of Pistols with attractive design, combining the best hard chrome in black and silver treatment, as well as customized fitting. They take advantage of the latest technologies of our CNC machines enabling them to make high quality Frames, Slides, Barrels, and other spare parts.
SPS pistols are originally designed for speed shooting but RWA have taken it a step towards airsoft, allowing airsofters to use it for both IPSC and regular skirmish games. The design is rather similar to the Recon version with SPS markings, serial numbers (which Spain need on each pistol) SPS grip panels and hammer. The trigger now has a slight groove making it a little lighter than its older brother, the Recon. The outer barrel is much lighter and is now chrome which is very beautiful against the black.
It is powered by CO2 and delivers a very strong recoil kick as well as very effective power of 400fps on 0.2g BB's and the performance is stable and effective even in cold weather. It also offers an accessory rail system for attaching flashlights and lasers for tactical use. Something you don't see on the real steel SPS pistol, but this is Airsoft and it is always handy to have extra accessories.
It does replicate a real single stack 1911 with the same dimensions, functional features, field stripping and shooting mechanics. It is designed to deliver solid performance at an affordable price. Removable and re-loadable full size 17 round magazine means you can also practice fast reloads using the realistic slide lock feature.
