Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Cybergun KWC Colt M1911 A1 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is exactly what you would expect from a true single action 1911 styled pistol. It has a short take up and then a nice light and crisp pull to it. Because of the similar mechanics not only to the trigger but other aspects of this gun, it would make an awesome low-cost trainer to be used when your real 1911 can not be.
Accuracy: For my accuracy target test I set up 30 feet back shooting from a semi-rested position (sand bag up front and standing in the back). This shooting position serves to provide a nice stable shooting platform for overall accuracy. Of course the results are always dependant on how I'm shooting on the day of my testing, after all I am only human! I shot my usual 10 rounds through the Cybergun KWC Colt M1911 A1 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol but for some reason this 1911 airsoft replica liked to shoot on the high side. My first shot curved well above my target and my second shot just clipped the metal portion. For my remaining 8 shots I lowered my aim to the lowest ring to see if I could get some shots on paper and even with this rather deliberate sight adjustment I was still hitting really high on the target, some shots still even off the paper and hitting metal. Either the adjustable BAXS Hop-up was way off or the airsoft ammo I was using did not agree with this 1911 pistol. It is kind of hard to say what kind of grouping I can actually get using this pistol as it stands, but from shooting similar versions of this pistol I should be able to get at least 2 inch groupings once it is set up right and using ammo that works well with it.
Build Quality: KWC did a great job with the Cybergun KWC Colt M1911 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol. The quality and build characteristics may even be just a bit better than my other KWC/Cybergun blowback air pistols. Everything that should be metal is the same on this as the original, the slide and barrel wiggle are minimal and the finish seems to be wearing fairly well on this KWC airgun. I do expect over time for some of the finish to wear off on the high points but this can also give the gun some character. ;)
Realism: The Cybergun KWC Colt M1911 A1 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is as close as you can get to the real steel 1911 A1 but with an obvious more modern look to it. This gun is nearly all metal with very heavy blowback making it feel real to hold in the hand and shoot.
Comments: The Cybergun KWC Colt M1911 A1 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol has a great single action trigger with the feel you would expect from a real 1911 pistol. The blowback action is strong, you can actually feel it not just in your hand but further back in your arms and even shoulders a little bit. I'm pretty sure with a quick hop-up adjustment or ammo swap, this Cybergun KWC Colt M1911 A1 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol will perform like all the other KWC pistols I have tested before it.
