Trigger Pull: Exactly what you would expect from a true single-action 1911 styled pistol. It has a short take-up and a light and crisp pull and release. Because of the similar mechanics like the trigger but also the other aspects of this gun, it would make a truly awesome low cost trainer to be used when your real 1911 is not practical and also to save on the high cost of real .45 shells.

Accuracy: I shot the Colt Commander at a target from 30 feet away in a semi-rested position, and it performed well. I got an 8 shot 1.5 inch grouping, very close to the bullseye that extended a little larger with three additional rounds that came outside the smaller 8 shot grouping. The sights are non-adjustable even though they look like they are, so it was nice to see that this BB pistol was already dialled in pretty good! My initial chrony testing puts this gun right in the 300-325 FPS range, getting a 5 shot average of 306 FPS which is just fine for this style of heavy full realistic blowback action BB shooter. The outside temperature was 22°C (72°F) so the Colt Commander should shoot quicker on a warmer day. You can expect to get three good magazines worth of shots with some extra CO2 leftover for a potential 4th magazine. If you slow your shooting down and let the gun and CO2 warm up between magazines you can get 4 mags with this BB gun for sure.

Build Quality: Like other KWC 1911s, the Umarex Colt Commander is, overall, a well-built and mechanically sound BB pistol. Tolerances are good and the finish may even be better than what KWC makes for their own non-licensed versions of this very popular 1911 series.

Realism: The Umarex Colt Commander BB Pistol is as close as you can get to a real steel 1911 styled .45 semi-auto, but with a slightly modern tactical look to it. The Colt Commander version has the addition of a Tac-style trigger, hammer, and upgraded white dot sights. This gun is nearly all metal with very heavy blowback action that simulates the more sluggish and delayed blowback of a real steel 1911. And the true 1911 single action trigger will not disappoint you either.

Pros:

  • All metal construction gives good weight for a solid feeling gun
  • Heavy blowback action that simulates shooting a 1911 very well
  • Accurate 1911 replica in terms of looks and mechanical aspects
  • Excellently true 1911 single action trigger with smooth and light pull
  • Working safety and grip safety
  • Decent accuracy, good amount of shots for this style of gun at about 3+ good magazines
  • All metal full size dropout magazine that holds the BBs and CO2
  • Nice addition of some tactical features (Tac-style trigger and hammer, white dot sights)
  • Chrome coated barrel and breach not only look nice but wears better

Cons:

  • Sacrificed FPS and shots per CO2 because of the heavy blowback but worth it
  • Not a big fan of the white "S&F" on the safety or the white warning instructions on the slide

Comments: Sure, the Umarex Colt Commander is yet another KWC-made 1911 but Umarex has really captured the classic 1911 style without taking it too far into the tactical realm. The addition of the modernized white dot sights, along with the machined trigger and hammer and the chrome barrel and breach give this blowback 1911 a well-balanced look. If you're looking for a traditional 1911 A1 but with a few modernized tweaks, then check out the Umarex Colt Commander.

Colt Comander 1911

Really cool 1911 pistol equally as good as the Tanfoglio Witness 1911 as far as the realism goes & the blow back action & accuracy....

Best GBB .177 Pistol *OVERALL*

Best value on the market! It's full metal and weighs the same as the .45 version. If you like intense blowback then I suggest using Crossman CO2s with this pistol. If you're like me and hate reloading, I highly suggest the extended magazine. It's super reliable and is also cheap/easy to repair. I've shot 5000+ rounds before I had any type of failure or malfunction. The valve knocker was worn down so when the hammer dropped the gun wouldn't actually fire. I ordered the Elite Force airsoft 1911 hammer rebuild kit for like $15 and it worked perfectly again for another 2500+ shots before the nozzle finally gave out. I emailed Elite Force asking if the 6mm and 4.5mm versions use the same nozzles, so if they say yes then I can get it shooting again.

Sorry for the slang: Yoooooooooo!!!! Amazing

I mean, I'm not the review type of guy but this time around I had to. I was skeptic about it, 'cause of my collections of Glocks, S&W and Berettas, so I said let me get it just to add. Yo!!! Incredible, the feeling (all metal), the replica, the ACCURACY very accurate 1 to 1.5 inch groups (dead center at 25 feet). I would highly recommend it for the bb amateur. Thanks Replica Airguns.

Really Great Gun

This is my 3rd 1911 model BB gun that I've bought. Really nice feel and mechanics to this pistol. My mag sometimes sticks when I try to eject is but I think it simply needs to be worked in a bit more. The only real downside is the packaging. They have it sealed up tighter than a medieval chastity belt. Actually scratched the trigger guard up trying to open it. Luckily I like my guns a bit worn and used looking. If you are looking for a 1911 BB gun this one is more than worth the price. It arrived early too! Just be careful when opening the packaging.

The Last 1911 You'll Ever Buy

Based off the title and the 5/5 stars you'll know right off the bat this is a positive review. I have fired about 6,000 bbs through this thing and have only ever had one malfunction! It may just be luck but I have faith that this thing, when I pull the trigger will function as intended! Not only has this pistol been reliable, but it is durable! You should never really dry fire an air gun because its just wear and tear for no real good reason ... but! Ive dry fire tested this thing more times then i'd like to admit, which is aprox. 1000 cycles and the only thing that happened was due to rapid rate of fire, I scratched my berrel a tad. Big whoopty doo.. This gun is an amazing unit, well constructed and very easy to clean and operate! Great for teaching the operations and cleaning as well as saftey of a firearm! Ive done a number on this thing and IF it stops functioning, ill be buying another! Best bang for your buck! Downfalls: Co2 Hungry! Heavy Slide / Heavy Recoil = Less Co2 conservation! Aprox 50 Good shots on 1 Co2, thats 3 full mags, your 4th mag you may make it through but youll have a hell of a drop on it.. but its still fun to try and hit your targets by aiming higher and compensating. Extra Mag. Costs! The magazines are much more expensive then your average mag because of the quility and the fact you can use it with other KWC 1911s.. unless you have other 1911s these will work with, its heafty and heavy decision to buy that 50-60$ spare mag.. but its worth it. I use two but want 4 to help with Co2 conservation, letting the empty mags warm up again before using them to get the best power per shot. I notice shooting too fast gets the cartridge, mag and the unit get really cold. This is how i caused my malfunction, i shot too fast causing the hammer/slide to not fully cycle and it dumped the co2 out inside the gun. Ive seen these at walmart in the U.S. and always wanted one but customs suck! You risk getting it confiscated at the border even though it complies. Buy it from Remplica Air ONLY! They have the best customer service and the best prices! Fast shipping too! The only thing Replica needs is bulk buy 12oz co2 options to take my business from my local stores, but, with brand name cartridge its hard to do. Id ordered bulk from othersites and they work, however, you get what you pay for. PelletOil removes paint! Becareful not to use too much oil, it removes the paint from the body. If you have pellet oil on your hands and rack the slide, youll notice the paint will fade and start to come off making your hands black! Its good to use a bit of oil, just becareful and wipe away all residual oil on the exterior to keep it looking mint! YOU WILL NOT REGRET BUYING THIS AIR GUN! ITS FUN, ITS CRISP, IT FEELS GOOD IN THE HAND, IT SOUNDS AMAZING RACKING THE SLIDE AND PUTTING IN THE CLIP. I COULDNT DREAM OF A BETTER AIR PISTOL. Some people have bad luck with faulty units, or they are just down right too rough with them and dont know how to maintain an air gun and drop a 1 star review. Its kinda sad, ive used 3 of this make and model and decided to get one and havent had a single issue with any of them! I read somewhere a guy cocked the hammer and because its skeletonized it snapped?? I don't know what that guy was doing to his but that is some thick durable metal, i cant imagine having that issue. I don't have kids, but if I did, they would be getting one of these puppies for Christmas! I pull this gun out and people drop bricks, they love it, they try it, they want one. Everyone loves the blowback and the realistic breakdown... I cant hype this gun up enough, you'll just have to buy it and fall in love with it yourself! That being said, do your research, read reviews, watch videos. Each airgun is different in its own way, it all depends on what your going to be wanting to do with it. I wouldnt hunt with this, only plink at close range. However, ive popped long shots with this and it makes you feel great to hear the shot, a good pause, then the plink of that can or timmies cup. I would always recommend that you buy a gun case, i got a cheapy to carry it from the car into home but its great for protecting the unit aswell from scuffs and drops. Be respectful of where you shoot and dont pull this thing out in public.

Great replica

First of all, it is really well made. You almost don’t feel it is a replica air pistol when you hold it. I have not put too many rounds on it but the accuracy is respectful.

This Field Test Shooting video is not going to have any big surprises but even so I really like shooting these KWC made CO2 Blowback BB 1911 Replicas and the Umarex Colt Commander is no exception. So let's get right to the test results! I started off by shooting 5 rounds through my Chronograph using a brand new CO2 with Umarex 5.1 grain zinc coated 4.5 mm Steel BB's. My 5 shot average velocity was 306 fps and the temperature on this day was fairly average at 22 Celsius (72 Fahrenheit). So on a warmer day you can expect to get a bit higher fps out of the Umarex Colt Commander CO2 Blowback 4.5mm BB Pistol.
