UHC LESOFT-904 Government AirSoft Pistol Review
Damn, it looks like that guy is having fun with an accurate representation of a 1911 doesn't it?
I placed my order for this airsoft pistol to Pyramid Air on January 21. On January 26, Fed Ex began leaving notes on my front door. It seems the folks at Pyramid Air thought they were shipping a firearm, and they required an adult signature. I wasn't going to hang around all day waiting on the Fed Ex guy, and I finally told him on the phone that he could just send the package back. He was willing to work with me after that, but honestly, I wish he had returned the package.
Now here is what you don't see in the video.........
The LESOFT-904 by NeonFire-UHC is made of plastic. I was expecting plastic, but not the cheapest plastic extruded in Taiwan. I expected the polymer to be more substantial than a floppy disk. It is not. In fact, I would not be surprised if old floppy disks were melted down to make this thing.
The video shows a cocked hammer. The hammer does not cock. The hammer is molded in place, and the slide slides over it. The thumb safety does go up, and it does block the trigger. The instructions, however, tell you not to test the system by pressing the trigger with the thumb safety up. The instructions explicitly state that doing so will break the pistol.
The video shows an ejection port opening when the guy racks the slide. There is no ejection port on this pistol at all. It's a molded in decoration.
The video shows a magazine that is the size of a 1911 mag. The magazine on this thing is a skinny tube that falls out the bottom of the pistol frequently. The magazine release is just a molded on decoration, the tube is held in by friction. I shot six magazines of ammo through this thing, and the magazine fell out every time.
The video cleverly hides the fact that the slide must be racked for each and every shot. I was expecting that, but why conceal the fact?
When the shooter is down to his last six pellets, he must invert the pistol and rack the slide upside down to get them to feed. I can understand why they concealed that little tidbit.
I was hoping that at least the grips might be removable, so I can install real grips. They are, in fact, removable, but they are hollow, and hide weights on the frame of the pistol. Real grips can be screwed on, but you will have to discard the weights. Then the pistol feels like crap in your hands. Oh, by the way, it does not weigh the same as a Government model, not even close, no way no how.
All of these faults might be acceptable if the pistol was accurate. I loaded up the pistol and shot at the sticky target from ten feet away. TEN FEET! My groups were six inches wide. Six inch groups at ten feet. Now I'm no bullseye shooter, but I can do better than that with a .22 caliber zip gun I made out of a television antenna! With this kind of dismal accuracy, a cat would chuckle instead of run from my front porch.
So, my conclusions are the UHC Airsoft 904 is shoddily constructed.
The UHC Airsoft 904 is inaccurate to the point of being worthless.
The UHC Airsoft 904 is falsely advertised in this video.
I would return this junk to Pyramid Air. However, shipping is $8.92. Pyramid Air does not refund shipping costs. So, I would be $17.84 in the hole just trying to return a $18.90 turd. Then, Pyramid Air would charge a restocking fee of at least 15%. That's an additional $5.96.
I guess they got me. It's a shame. I ordered my IZH 46M from Pyramid Air and have been absolutely thrilled with it. I will not order another product from Pyramid Air. I will simply continue to shoot this piece of crap and see how long it takes to tear it up.
