Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Colt Government 1911 A1 is extremely nice in both single and double action mode with the single action having the lightest pull making it a joy to shoot at targets.
Accuracy: I shot this air gun at a target from 20 feet away in a free standing position, and it performed excellent getting just over a one inch grouping close to the center of the target, just a little bit high. The sights can be adjusted for windage if you are shooting a tad bit to the left or right. My Chrony testing with an eight shot averaged result was 383 fps.
Build Quality: This is an almost all metal air gun with great fit and finish and a nice hefty 2.5 pound weight to it. It's made in Germany, what more do I need to say? The only plastic parts to speak of are the grips which almost feel like a mix between rubber and plastic. All the mechanical parts operation are as smooth as butter.
Realism: The Umarex Colt Government 1911 A1 is a licensed replica of the real Government Colt 1911 A1 45 auto pistol. It looks pretty much bang on with the exception of the slight break in the slide where the rotary magazine is accessible.
Comments: The Umarex Colt Government 1911 A1 is a pleasure to own and shoot, you can really tell this is a quality gun from how smoothly it operates and the confidence it gives you even just holding it in your hands. This well-made airgun has been around since the late 90's and even today holds its own. It may not have a working blowback design or drop out magazine but as far as being a top notch airgun made for shooting and enjoying for years to come, it definitely succeeds in that category.
