Type:Airsoft Pistol Manufacturer: KWC Model: M1911 Materials: full metal construction Weight: 1.97 pounds Barrel: 5 inches Propulsion: 12 gram CO2 cartridges Action: semi-automatic, single-action Ammunition Type: 6mm plastic airsoft BBs Ammunition Capacity: 17 rounds FPS: 400 fps
Comments: The KWC M1911 is essentially is the Airsoft KWC version of the Cybergun Tanfoglio Witness 1911 without any branding and also in 6mm Airsoft caliber. The KWC M1911 features a full size drop out metal magazine that holds both the 6mm Plastic Airsoft BB's and the CO2 cartridge. It features a working slide with realistic blowback operation and can be fully field stripped just like the actual 1911 sidearm.
I purchased the gun as a replica only with no intention of firing the gun. I was actually shocked at the quality of the piece. It has a nice weight and balance with great attention to detail. It's all metal replica aside from the grips which are very nice regardless. I would highly recommend this replica with no reservations.
The gun was shipped the next day and packaged very well so I am also pleased with the great service.

KWC 1911 - FTW
Purchased for rec use and simulation training//
MAG SIZE: 17 ROUNDS
RANGE: 21 FT - 17/17 - Effective grouping sizes of 10+
RANGE: 15FT (86% Pistol ENGAGE RAGE) - 17/17 - Grouping sizes of .5 -> 1 inch
COMBAT RELOAD: 1.8s - 1 mag (Staring mag 8 Rounds, Final Mag 17 Rounds)
This weapon has a fast action, heavy action, and very well timed movements. This weapon feels like the REAL DEAL. with no actual markings it clearly lack the license for the colt 1911. However, for 199.99 you can not beat this weapons accuracy and value.
Extra mags only 49.99 - you can store 17 rounds per mag, giving you effective fire support at 25Ft or less!
KWC you make on heck of a weapon! Than you!

Did I get a lemon?
I've had this pistol for a month now. While it has functioned properly so far, there are some major quality issues that affect the appearance of an otherwise fine pistol. The most serious is that the slide and the frame have different paint colour and finish: The frame's paint finish is slightly darker and smoother than the slide! It almost appears as if the slide and the frame came from different guns. I contacted Replica Airguns about this and even sent them photos to back up my claim, but they did not accept this as a manufacturing defect because the gun still works. This is a major disappointment. I certainly did not expect this kind of quality issue in a gun at this price point. Another thing with this pistol is that it came with a silver outer barrel that is threaded. This may look good on a modern version of the 1911 but does not match the classic World War II style of this pistol. Overall, I'm not happy with the purchase. A summary of the pros and cons follows.
- No "KWC MADE IN TAIWAN" markings (main reason I bought from this site)
- No jams or malfunctions so far
- Accuracy seems decent
- Slide and frame have different colour and finish (major irritant)
- Slide has some wobble on frame
- Some contours on slide not smooth (mold issue?)
- Noticeable gap between slide and frame
- Loading BBs into magazine is painful (literally)
- Rough threaded muzzle
- Paint wears easily

Here is a short video update along with a few photos of my KWC and Umarex Airsoft Pistols recently added to the Canada Replica Airguns Store. The models showcased are the KWC M1911 & KWC M92 (PT99) along with the Umarex Walther P99. All of these pistols use 6mm plastic Airsoft BB's, shoot over 366 fps using CO2 and have blowback operation.
