No. You're not seeing double, and no, I didn't do that cheesy photo effect where the camera mirrors the original subject to make two identical subjects. This review features two (2) Gas Blowback Pistols. Which two?
Work it, girls...
These two lovelies from the Caspian line of WE are some of the newest additions to Pyramyd Air's Catalog of Airsoft Gas Blowback Pistols.
One thing you may notice if you're the highly-analytical type is that there are four (4) gas magazines in the the dualie photos and two (2) gas magazines in a few of the solo shots. That's because each WE 1911 MEU comes with two of those hot & chromy MEU-style 15-round mags. Another nice thing about these mags other than their stunning appearance is their compatibility with just about any brand of 1911 or MEU out there, except maybe the Western Arms pistols, but I'm not sure on that. They are usually not compatible with WE/Marui/KJW pistol parts though.
So you can see that these two guns are virtually identical with the exception that the MEU to the left has been blessed with a rail for mounting lights, lasers, or light/laser combos.

Here's a close-up of the Caspian trademark printed on the tan slide. I personally feel the silver/steel/metal trigger is a nice touch. Just what I believe in.
Notice, below, that the hammer is at half-cocked position. This can be used and was probably designed as a safety feature since the gun cannot be fired when the hammer is in this position.
Just thought I'd show you the little Caspian logo printed on the right side of the slide at the back. You can also clearly see the slide serrations for gripping when pulling the slide back. A third point of interest would be the presence of the thumb safety. You'll notice when comparing pics of the left and right sides of these guns that there is a thumb safety switch on each side, making it what most of the cool kids refer to as an ambidextrous safety. I was cool in high school once. FYI.
This next shot is mildly redundant of the prior, however, the grip is just about fully visible now for those of you tired of looking at the left-side of the grip.
Here is where I show off my imperfections as a human being. This next photo was a fail. I had intended to capture the essence of the chamber by showing off the stamped text that reads ".45 ACP" but the photo did not turn out as I had planned. So I've left you with a relatively pointless image of the top of the slide. Bummer.
This discussion of the WE 1911 MEU Airsoft Gas Blowback Pistols will now cease to continue.
I'm not sure if you know or not, but when in Rome...
