Trigger Pull: It is what you would expect from a true 1911 single action only trigger. It has very little take-up with a smooth, crisp, and light release to it.
Accuracy: I shot the KP-05 from 20 feet out in semi-rested position and got very good test results. I was able to place 10 rounds in under 1.5 inches, getting four shots right in the bullseye. The shot placement very good even without adjusting the sights (which can be adjusted for windage). The pistol shot right around 300 FPS range while conducting my 5 shot average Chrony testing, which was surprisingly low for the CO2 version. This may have been a temperature or CO2 related condition, so when I conduct my full Field Test Shooting Review, I will review this and see if we can do better. I also got two full 30 round magazines worth of shots which is what you would expect from this style of full heavy blowback airsoft pistol.
Build Quality: I am extremely impressed with the build quality of all the KJ Works Airsoft guns so far. The fit and finish is the best around on any of my guns including my 4.5mm steel BB shooters. After shooting several magazines worth of BBs, areas that are painted like the metal friction areas show very light wear which is rarely the case with metal blowback airguns. The moving parts like the slide and frame had very tight tolerances, showing excellent workmanship and machining from KJ Works.
Realism: The KJ Works KP-05 airsoft pistol is a great looking and functioning replica of a High Capacity-styled tactical 1911 45 Auto. You will not find any actual licensing on this pistol. The CO2 magazine does stick out a bit to accommodate the 12 gram CO2 but other than that, this pistol looks and works near exactly like a real 1911 tactical semi-auto and is fully field-strippable. I really like the updated tactical add-ons like the tactical rail, machined trigger and hammer, white dot adjustable sights, wrap-around grips, and ambidextrous safety.
Comments: The HI-CAPA KP-05 is another excellent full blowback airsoft pistol from KJ Works. The KP-05 is a classic yet modernized version of the 1911 semi-auto which is a great foundation to build any pistol from. I found the CO2 usage to be decent on the KP-05 but felt that I should have been able to get more FPS out of this pistol. That aside, the KP-05 is a great shooter as is, and with its high capacity magazine it would be a perfect sidearm for any airsoft related skirmish or even just for honing up your shooting skills when getting to the gun range is not an option.
