From what I've seen, you have a 50/50 chance with the WE 1911's. Mine broke, a few of the other local guys had them break.. but I've seen one lad around here have two that he uses constantly and have held up.
If you buy one new, and cut the spring guide down right away.. it wont bottom out in the spring cap and break it. Problem solved.

Please save for me, some gallantry
