An all metal (Aluminium) pistol, the DoubleStar is essentially an M1911 with modern styling. Making use of the single stack type magazine, its slender in the hand making it comfortable and the lightweight metal makes it fairly agile despite its fair amount of mass. Although the weapon can cycle on HFC gas it tends to start chocking half way through the magazine, this is definitely a TOP / Green / Propane gas weapon as on this preferred choice it will cycle clean, shoot well and perform optimally putting out clean operation through the entire magazine. It will also handle Red gas though of course at the cost of higher wear and tear over time.
A full metal 1911 has blowback pistol, is executes full cycle action on each shot and on Green gas using 0.2g BBs it clocks in at a reasonable 300 FPS from its 15 round magazine. All DoubleStar 1911s are basically the same; they all have Novak grips and railed frames.
The base model (SG-DSCP01) has a normal barrel but it is threaded to accept the included silencer thread adapter. The external adapter threading is standard anti-clockwise 14mm.
The Ball Type model (SG-DSCP02) is identical but comes with a black flash hider attached instead of the normal end plate. The original end plate is included and an extra set of waffle pattern grips are included (as well as the existing installed Novak grips). The grip is called Ball type because it is patterned after the dimples on a Golf Ball. The outer barrel is still threaded so although no thread adapter is included the after market addition of one is possible if the flash hider is replaced with the base model end plate.
The Flag Type model (SG-DSCP03) is identical to the ball type with the only exception being the extra grip panel is the Flag Type so called for its pattern that is reminiscent of the US flag with stars and stripes.
