Very realistic and fun to shoot, but not reliable in any way.
First off, this isn't actually a replica of a Beretta, but rather a Taurus PT92. Beretta, the company responsible for the M9, does not make PT92s. Their 92 pistol is the Beretta 92FS, which looks nothing like this.I will say that this pistol feels amazing. I've used the Tanfoglio Witness 1911, the Desert Eagle, and this. This was by far the most fun to shoot. It's definitely much louder than the other two, the blowback creates much more recoil, and it sounds just amazing.And that weight. The full metal frame makes it feel real in both weight and texture. However, along with these good things there are three major issues I have with it.There is a major safety problem, and it's that the safety only engages when the hammer is back. This would not be a problem on something like the Desert Eagle and the Tanfoglio Witness ass they are single action. This one is double action. So when you pull the trigger and the hammer is forward, it will pull the hammer back about 3/4 of the way and then fire. That means unless you carry it cocked, you cannot turn the safety on. It's always live.My second problem is the accuracy. I didn't expect much due to the fact that this is a very heavy, and full auto, pistol. But when I'm 30 metres away and shooting at my very brave volunteer, and he reports three hits from an entire 26 round magazine, that's a bit of a problem. The Tanfoglio Witness hit every time at that distance. However, due to my new neighbors complaining about the noise from only a piano, this gun is way too loud to fire in my basement range. I haven't fired it even 500 times yet, so it's safe to assume the hop isn't worked in yet. Seeing as the Deagle, fresh and fired less than mine has been, is more accurate, I have to vote the accuracy low. I would rate two, but the hop could certainly be contributing to the accuracy issues.My third problem with this gun is the very crappy trigger spring. Once again, I have fired it less than five hundred times. And yet the trigger spring is already broken. Very unreliable. You can't actually buy those anywhere. You have to buy the real steel part. I don't know if this is compatible with the airsoft version, and because my prior mentioned volunteer and my best friend bought the Witness and the Deagle from me, I am without a single gun until I can find somewhere to buy a replacement part without having to buy the whole $100 assembly. In terms of enjoyment and realism, absolute best I've ever used.Reliability and accuracy, however, bring this heavily down.

A really enjoyable pistol
This is a well crafted pistol that impressed me right from the start. It has a firm blowback that provides a nice feel while firing in either semi or full-auto modes. It also packs a surprising punch with its velocity. A much better pistol than I expected.
-KWC M1911 CO2 Blowback Airsoft pistol -KWC M92 (PT99) CO2 Blowback Airsoft pistol -Umarex Walther P99 CO2 Blowback Airsoft pistol
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.
I have talked about how KWC and Cybergun are really the same product and that Cybergun and KWC products in many cases are really the same gun but with some versions having slightly different markings on the guns themselves.
Today I show you a new 4.5mm Steel BB gun we just brought into the store very closely related to the Cybergun Tanfoglio Witness 1911, or otherwise known as the KWC Model 1911. This new airguns is a Tactical version of the Model M1911 and it goes by the name Model M1911 A1 Tac. It shares the same internal parts as the Tanfoglio Witness 1911 including the 4.5mm Steel BB magazine but the Tactical version is all black and has several updated modern parts that you would not find in a traditional 1911 A1 45 auto replica: Like the tactical trigger, hammer, adjustable white dot sights and accessory rial. This gun would make an awesome IPSC trainer for sure.
At this point there is no 6mm Airsoft version but you can get the KWC Model 1911 and M92 in 6mm Airsoft all metal versions.
I also compare my GSG 92 4.5mm Steel BB pistol I reviewed in the past and show you that it is identical to the KWC same M92 version with the exception of some marking on the slide. Many people even prefer the KWC branded models as they do not have the rather offensive white warning instructions all over them.
