Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the KWC Model 1911 All Metal Non-Blowback CO2 Airsoft Pistol was about medium to hard but I have definitely experienced heavier trigger pulls on many double-action only airguns. It is nice that the trigger has the look of a 1911 and not your typical lever styled trigger. I did find the trigger to be very usable and the release point is smooth and fairly predictable.
Accuracy: I have yet to perform my field test shooting component for the KWC Model 1911 All Metal Non-Blowback CO2 Airsoft Pistol, however I have reviewed the same gun in 4.5mm Steel BB version and here is what I had to say about that the Steel BB version: "Accuracy was decent but not outstanding, I got around a 2.5 inch grouping from a 20 foot away free standing position, shooting just to the left and high on the target. I did find that I was able to zone in a bit better with the GSR 1911 as I got used to the trigger. I also put the Sig Sauer GSR through my Chrony Chronograph and got very close the manufacturers 397 claimed feet per second, actually starting off well above it and settling down to around the 370 FPS mark. My 8 shot average on a new CO2 was actually 422 FPS.
Build Quality: The build quality for the KWC Model 1911 is very good, this is an almost all metal airsoft gun with a few exceptions like the hammer, trigger, magazine release, slide catch and grip safety. Pretty much everything else is metal including the slide, frame, magazine, and even the grips. The finish is very good and since there is lots of metal with minimal moving parts and less to go wrong, this should make for a very reliable pistol.
Realism: The KWC Model 1911 CO2 Airsoft Pistol is very close to the look, weight, and feel of the real steal Sig-Arms 1911 GSR! Even the 1911 style trigger was replicated as best as it could be given it being double action only. It would have been nice to have a single action trigger and a working slide to finish off the illusion but overall the GSR is a really nice copy of the real steel Sig Sauer GSR Sig-Arms 1911 firearm.
Comments:For a relatively inexpensive All Metal Airsoft gun you get a lot for your money with the KWC Model 1911, most importantly a very accurate reproduction of the real steal Sig-Arms Sig Sauer 1911 GSR firearm! If you're a 1911 fan and want to pick up an Airsoft gun that won't set you back too much, then the KWC Model 1911 would make a great choice with its heavy full metal weight, full size drop out metal magazine, accurate reproduction of the real steal Sig-Arms GSR and again that very affordable price tag.
