Trigger Pull: The Single Action Only trigger pull on the KWC M1911 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is exactly as it should be and just like what you would find on a real steel Colt 1911 pistol. That would be short, light and crisp. As there is no double action mode, you are required to rack the slide back to chamber a rounds and cock the hammer for the first shot, afterwards the blowback action will do this for you.
Accuracy: I wasn’t overly impressed with the accuracy of the KWC M1911 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol when I tested it out in the Replica Airguns Indoor Sea Can Airgun Range but it is what it is. The M1911 shot really high and a bit loose getting about a 5 inch 10 shot grouping, perhaps a hop-up adjustment was in order but this is how it shot right out of the box which is how I test all my Airguns. In terms of power the KWC M1911 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol was bang on shooting .25 gram Airsoft BB’s at right around 350 fps.
Build Quality: The KWC M1911 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol like the other all metal KWC made 1911’s out there being sold under different company names, is a good value Blowback 1911 Airgun no matter which version you get. It’s not the best or worst, right about in the middle but most of the bugs have been worked out since this is one of the longes CO2 1911’s out there and for the most part has stayed about the same. I find the finish does come off a bit easy but when this happens it kind of gives the 1911 Airgun a more realistic and slightly worn in look to it.
Realism: The KWC M1911 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is a One to One replica of the real steel M1911 A1 and does a great job at replicating it. You would be hard pressed to see any differences in the Airgun version and the .45 caliber firing version until you pick one up and work the parts a bit, even so pretty much all the mechanical parts work the same as a real steel M1911 A1 including the ability to filed strip the Airgun version and gain access to the hop-up and other internal parts.
Comments: I have always been a fan of the 1911 pistol and the KWC M1911 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is no exception to this. Like all of the KWC 1911’s out there being redistributed by the big airgun companies the KWC version is really no different other than more simple KWC branding and with no licensing on the Airgun to speak of. Some people prefer the cleaner look to it and some will like to have licensed versions, to each their own. Do some looking around on our website and find a KWC made 1911 you like best, perhaps a simple KWC M1911 A1 like the one reviewed here or maybe a more tactical version with all the more modern updates to it like a rail, ambidextrous controls and tactical triggers and hammers.
