Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the KWC Colt 1911 M45A1 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is what you would expect from a true single action 1911 styled pistol and typical to all the other KWC 1911s on the market. It has a short take up and then a nice light and crisp release. The working grip safety is a nice touch requiring your palm to be pressed against it for the trigger and hammer to operate.
Accuracy: At this point I have not shot the KWC Colt 1911 M45A1 Blowback Airsoft Pistol, I imagine it should perform well considering it has adjustable spin-up/hop-up. According to the manufacturer's claimed FPS, we should get somewhere in the mid to high 300 FPS range using .20 g plastic airsoft BBs.
Build Quality: Most KWC built full blowback airguns are built pretty well with an almost all metal build and good overall fit, but sometimes the finish can wear off a bit, especially in the high points. The KWC Colt 1911 M45A1 Blowback Airsoft Pistol seems to have a bit heavier finish on it. It looks really good and seems to be holding up well.
Realism: The KWC Colt 1911 M45A1 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is a close replica of the real steel Colt 1911 M45A1 in almost every way other than the fact that it shoots 6mm airsoft BBs rather than .45 auto bullets :). The only real notable cosmetic difference I saw was the rail having less notches in it, other than that it is bang on, including the layered grips.
- Metal construction, good weight and solid feeling gun
- Nice heavy blowback action
- Very accurate 1911 M45A1 styled replica
- True 1911 single action trigger, excellent pull, very smooth and light
- Accurate trigger design and working grip safety
- Lots of tactical upgrades on this version (Tac style trigger and hammer, textured grips, ambidextrous safety, white dot sights, rail for accessories)
- Love the desert tan color and layered grips
- Sacrifice FPS and shots per CO2 because of the heavy blowback
- Finish on the Cybergun and KWC guns can wear off on the high points
Comments: I have always been a big fan of the KWC line of full blowback airguns and this one is no exception. It's kind of interesting that KWC does not seem to make their own blinded out versions of these guns and that a company like Cybergun is distributing them? They do look really great and this entire line with all the variations and new models will for sure keep selling these airguns.

Another Airgun Shipping Container (Sea Can) Shooting video and for this indoor filed test I put the KWC - Cybergun M45A1 1911 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol through its paces.
What I am super happy about is that my Chrony Chronograph seems to be working really well as I tested a pellet, steel BB and Airsoft pistol out today and every single round through my Chrony got a reading :)
Now back to the Field Test Shooting Review at hand... I started off by placing 5 shots through my Chrony Chronograph using a brand new CO2 with .20 gram Airsoft BB's and got a really consistent reading for all 5 shots with an average of 357. The lowest shot was 353 and the fastest shot was 364 so all shots where really close in velocity. The container temperature was a near perfect shooting temperature of 23 degrees Celsius which was ideal for optimal CO2 velocity testing.
During my accuracy portion of this Field Shooting Test. I used my new seated in the back and sand bag rested up front shooting position which is about 30 feet back from my paper target. I did notice during my Chrony testing that the Cybergun KWC Colt 1911 Rail Gun M45 A1 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol liked to shoot a bit high, perhaps the hop-up needs a bit of twerking? So for my accuracy testing I shot at the bottom ring of the target, this helped me get more shots on the paper for sure but the Airsoft BB's still moved around a bit vertically. I was able to get about a 4-5 inch 10 shot grouping which is totally acceptable for a close range Airsoft sidearm and in an Airsoft battle I would think even shooting at about 50 feet or so I could easily hit a persons mid section consistently.
The Cybergun KWC Colt 1911 Rail Gun M45 A1 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol has a ton of blowback kick to it and a super nice single action trigger like all the KWC 1911's The modern Tactical coloration and trimmings makes this pistol a great choice as a present day side arm. It's real looker for sure with performance to match!
