Type: Airsoft Pistol
Materials: Full ABS plastic
Weight: 544.31 g (1.2 lbs)
Barrel: 228.6 mm (9 in), smoothbore
Power Source: 12 g CO2 x 1
Action: Semi-Automatic, double-action only
Ammo Type: 6 mm airsoft BBs
Ammo Capacity: 26 rounds
Trigger Pull: It's rather long and a bit firm so you will get a bit of a finger workout. There is no blowback operation since this is a double-action only pistol.
Accuracy: The KWC MAC-11 M11 has an internal fixed hop-up system which did seem to help with accuracy. Shooting from a semi-rested position with paper targets set up 30 feet away, I was able to get a well-centered 1.5 to 2 inch grouping. The gun was well-centered left to right but just a little high.
Build Quality: Overall, the gun is built fairly well as long as you don't mind the all-plastic build. If you were to drop this all-plastic pistol on the ground it would most likely bounce a couple of times no worse for wear since it is lightweight. If it was an almost all-metal build it would weigh a lot more and dropping it onto a hard surface could easily break the zinc alloy metal parts. There is some metal on the pistol with the sliding stock and some internal parts. The rear fold out portion of the stock is actually hardened steel!
Realism: As real steel MAC-11 replica, this KWC model looks bang on. It is a 1 to 1 scale and is virtually identical to the real MAC-11. In terms of function however, this does not have many working parts other than the trigger, safety, and magazine release. The selector switch, bolt charging handle, and bolt are all molded into the gun and their only purpose is to look good! The overall weight is rather light too since most of this pistol is ABS or plastic.
Comments: To be honest, when I first saw the box for the KWC MAC-11 M11 CO2 Airsoft Gun I was a bit excited. That was, until I opened it up and found out I was looking at an almost all-plastic gun with few working parts and no blowback operation. But after holding it and giving this air pistol a good lookover I have to say I am warming up to it a bit more now. After all, it 100% looks the part so if you are looking for a replica MAC-11 then this will fill that purpose. Even though it is almost all ABS plastic, this solid airgun is well made. The steel and metal stock are nice additions and for a low cost replica airsoft shooter you do get your money's worth.
