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.

Amazing gun!

I do really love this gun, I had it in the past and loved it thats why I decided to purchase again. The power for the price is amazing. The accuracy on a brand new CO2 is amazing, obviously as the CO2 cartridge loses some pressure the accuracy tends to be very off but thats expected. Overall 9/10 very fun gun to mess around with!

Best buy EVER

the description and pictures don't do justice to the gun...when you'll hold the gun in your hand it's a different story, it feats and feels like (almost) a real gun, the blow back is pure unadulterated fun, it's heavy enough (not to light or heavy..just right) must have in any collection. CO2's consumption is not that bad, compared to the fun your getting plus pulling out this one made my buddy drooling

Umarex Colt Commander CO2 Blowback 4.5mm BB Pistol Field Test Review

http://www.ReplicaAirguns.com - Umarex Colt Commander CO2 Blowback 4.5mm BB Pistol Field Test Review.

-CO2 Powered

-19 Round Double Sided Rotary Magazine
-1911 Colt Commander Licensed Replica
-Semi Auto - Single Action Only
-Blowback Action
-325 FPS
-Purchased from www.ReplicaAirguns.com

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.

Moving on to the Target accuracy performance, I shot 10 rounds from the Umarex Colt Commander from 30 feet back using a semi rested position (Sand bag in the front, standing in the back). I was able to place the bulk of the shots within a 1.5 inch group but three came out extending the group somewhat, overall the placement was fairly well centered on target and the white dot sights make sighting the Umarex Colt Commander CO2 Blowback 4.5mm BB Pistol really easy on just about any color background.
