Type: Airsoft Pistol.
Manufacturer: KWC.
Model: M1911.
Materials: Almost entirely all Metal.
Weight: 1.97 pounds (894 grams).
Barrel: 4.5 inches, metal non-rifled.
Propulsion: 12 gram CO2.
Action: Semi auto, single action only with full blowback.
Ammunition Type: 6mm Plastic Airsoft BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 14-15 rounds full size drop out metal magazine.
FPS: 360+.

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.

Pros: 

  • All metal construction.
  • Full length blowback action with nice heavy recoil.
  • Accurate Colt M1911 A1 replica.
  • Single action only trigger feels good, short light and crips.
  • Accurate trigger design and working grip safety.
  • Metal magazine holds the CO2 and 14-15 Airsoft BB’s.
  • No ugly white writing (warning instructions) on the slide of the gun.
  • Fully filed strippable.
  • Adjustable Hop-up.
  • Recessed barrel for added realism.
  • FPS is just about perfect, just over 360 fps using .20 gram BB’s, not too powerful but Canada import friendly.

Cons:

  • Finish on KWC guns can wear off quickly in the high spots but has gotten better over the years.
  • Full blowback action will eat up a lot of CO2.

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.

Love this thing

First gun I ever got and I wanted something hyper realistic. If you ignore the bb mechanism the entire mechanism is highly similar to the real thing. Ive used actual 1911 full dismantling videos to take this thing apart and rebuild it (of course with some differences here and there). Haven't used this thing for an actual airsoft game yet since I lack the courage but It seems to perform adequatly and fast for what it needs to be doing. And for those who wonder, yes you can use actual 1911 full size government grips on this model. So yeah, super fun to strip apart and rebuild and such a thrill for it to be fully metal and so realistic. LOVE THIS THING!

As close to the real legend

The weight, aesthetics and the mechanical feel of this 1911 makes it worth every penny, especially when most of us can't afford the real thing. Recoil and accuracy are good enough to keep in the collection.

This Gun is Great

Full metal parts, overall weight distribution and feel makes this a great buy. It hasn’t jammed for me once. It’s quite strong compared to my other guns. I would definitely recommend this gun.

In this video Update I show you around two KWC Airsoft pistols, the Sig Pro SP2022, and the Taurus PT 24 (24/7), both of which I just added to the Canada Replica Airguns Store. I also show you a very nice alternative to the Cybergun Sig Sauer P226 X-Five - the KWC Equivalent which almost exactly the same but with an adjustable rear sight, flared magwell and an unlicensed slide.
