Daisy Winchester Model 11 Blowback BB Pistol

Type: BB Air Pistol
Manufacturer: Daisy
Model: Winchester Model 11 (1911)
Materials: Metal slide & frame
Weight: 1.87 pounds (843 grams)
Barrel: Metal non-rifled smooth bore
Propulsion: 12 gram CO2
Action: Single action only
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm Steel BBs
Ammunition Capacity: 16 rounds
FPS: 410 fps

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Daisy Winchester Model 11 is very nice, just about the perfect pull weight, not too heavy or too light and it has next to no take-up at all and a nice predictable release point. Like  a 1911 styled pistol, the trigger is single action only so you will need to either pull the hammer back or rack the slide for the first shot. With subsequent shots you will not have to do this as the blowback action cocks the hammer for single action shooting. If your CO2 is very low, the blowback may not be adequate enough to cock the hammer so you can do this manually to get a few extra shots out of the Daisy Model 11.

Accuracy: When I shot the Winchester Model 11 from 20 feet out in a semi-rested position, I was able to get some decent results. I placed 10 rounds within about a 2 group and the shot placement was very well centered, just a slight bit to the left. I did get a couple of stragglers that spread the group out just a bit larger but not too much. I did also get right around 350-360 fps on my chronograph on this not so warm day. We will have to see what my dedicated field test results yield for this BB pistol.

Build Quality: The Daisy Model 11 (1911) is made in Japan and has a nice overall finish to it. Other than the plastic magazine and grips it is an all metal gun so the materials used are good. The slide does have a bit of wiggle play in it but so do many blowback air pistols, perhaps to reduce some friction as the slide springs on these guns are not overly heavy. The paint used seems to be holding up very well and looks good, but I did notice a molding seem that runs down the underside of the slide and along the trigger guard.

Realism: The Daisy Winchester Model 11 is a replica of the real steel 1911 A1 style 45 auto. It does have the Winchester licensing on it but I am not sure if there is an exact Winchester 1911 this gun is made to replicate. For the most part it looks and functions very similar to a real 1911 with a few exceptions like the lack of a working grip safety, a rather strange two stage safety and also the stick styled smaller magazine. This blowback air pistol cannot be field striped conventionally either. I do like the true single action trigger and open ejection port.

Pros:

  • Lots of metal in this airgun and good weight to it.
  • Good overall looking replica of a real 1911.
  • Reasonably decent blowback feel.
  • Mid-range fps and shots per CO2. 
  • Very nice true single action trigger.
  • Shots where well centered and got decent accuracy.
  • Markings and instructions on gun are color matched.
  • Solid CO2 tightening system, seems to work well once you get the hang of it.
  • Not bad at all for the lower price point.
  • Like the open ejection port.
  • Made in Japan.

Cons:

  • Kind of funny safety setup, it is redundant?
  • Has a plastic magazine, would have been nice in metal.
  • Back strap safety does not actually work but it does move.
  • Says "clip" instead of "magazine" on gun.

Comments:

I know some people have been hating on this gun for a couple of reason so let's get them out of the way... Yes it has a weird safety setup and I cannot tell you why Daisy did this, perhaps they wanted it to be "more safe"? As a 1911 trainer you will have to adapt how you take this gun off of safety over a traditional 1911 setup. The magazine is plastic, not a biggie, if it breaks on you get another one. It's not full blowback like the Cybergun/KWC Tanfoglio 1911, this is true but you do get higher fps and more shots per CO2 out of it because of this. And yes Daisy uses the word "Clip" on the gun instead of the correct term "Magazine". Honestly, the Daisy Winchester Model 11 is a nice overall BB gun and the price point is pretty low for what you get. It looks really good overall and shoots nicely with enough blowback to give you some recoil feel and allow for true single action shooting. You also get decent fps and a good amount of shots from a single CO2 cartridge so stop complaining and just enjoy this gun for what it is!

Needs a little work but still really good

I have had my 1911 for 3 mouth and shooting it every day since and it's work perfectly every day. the slide is I bit wiggle out of the package, but has really snappy blow back. It will get about 4 magazine per co2. It's not the best 1911 out there but it's still pretty good, but my friends had one and after 6 mouth the trigger broke so be careful, but my friends was very ruff with it. Hope the review helped.

Great Pistol, Fun to Shoot!

I really like this pistol. However, I felt it needed just a touch of cosmetic work. I "aged" it a bit with some fine steel wool and sprayed the handles, which I felt were too light, with some cheap brown spray paint, and now it looks like a museum piece! The blowback works perfectly, and is very stingy on gas. I get at least 4 magazines of BBs at very good power, before I have to hand cock and shoot when the power starts dropping. There is a good "whomp" when you fire off the first few magazines. I like the fact that there is no funky wing screw on the bottom to take away from the authentic appearance. Accuracy seems to be very good for a smooth bore pistol. I think it will give me years of fun! Check it out.

good replica for a 1911 shooting experience

Love mine and have shot it alot. There are small changes to this gun from the real one that are tacky , but shooting fun soon makes up for these foibles. Most noticable is the double safety latch glitch, and non functioning grip safety. Short throw on the slide to lock it back ?? I did not like the flimsy plastic mag , which the top broke out of, Thankfully a call to Daisy had them send me 2 freebies Otherwise it a straight shooter so skill levels and accurracy make it a valuable piece to own ,and it looks Good to boot Its made in Japan , but not a expensive gun!
