I would go based solely on looks. I like the look of a 1911 more than the ATP, but that would be the only reason. I can't really tell you any specifics, but if you're looking at the specific gun, it should tell you the specs and you can just compare it that way. Plus, if you're one to customize guns, the Mark II would be the way to go because there are so many customization options out there for the 1911 models and I don't think there's NEARLY as much for the ATP. So I would recommend the Mk II

If your heart is set on the MK, then you should buy the MK.  I have the MK IV and the ATP.  I like both.  But, when I play, I only use the ATP.  It's more a straight forward gun in my opinion with regard to function, form, and maintenance.

In the end, it's what you want and what makes you happy that's most important.  So, go with your gut and enjoy the MK.

My Son has the MK II Its great gun! He's younger and dropped a few mags & lost one due to the placement of the mag release button. He was 12 at the time. Seems it was harder finding the 21rd MK mags, and now i see there getting low on online stores.
Im thinking of getting a few before there out. Just in case!

I sold a bunch of the early release 21rd mags, and bought him the M9 He's happy with that.

FWIW, i never read any posts of people having that problem with the mag release.

Just to show ya there are different opinions:  :)

The Mark-series on the M1911 do not appear to be a robust design and dry firing the pistol will damage them.  Inattentive disassembly and cleaning will end up with parts missing from the pistol.  The magazine catch is very sensitive (certainly on mine) and dropping magazines unintentionally is easy.  The hockey puck rubber bumper on the bottom makes filling difficult as some gas nozzles aren't long enough.

Couple this to the fact they're single action and need to be carried cocked-and-locked or will require two hands to get in operation.  On the realism or "training" side unless KWA has modified the design one has to depress the slide lock to close the slide, cycling the slide will not close it thus immediate action with the KWA pistol is vastly different from the M1911 unless you modify the slide by filling in part of the area where the slide stop engages it.

Don't misunderstand my criticisms.  They're of the KWA version.  I carry the Colt version daily.

Update
FWIW, I have read one other post where the mag was unintentionally dropped.
Not sure if it's do to the release button.
