Action: Semi auto blowback, single action.
Ammunition Type: Steel BBs 4.5mm.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull is what you would expect from a real 1911 automatic pistol, with single action. It is very light and short.

Accuracy: Surprisingly good! I got just under a two inch grouping from 20 feet away shooting 8 shots on a target in a free standing position, and I was only using one hand this time!

Build Quality: Excellent, with almost all metal construction, good weight and craftsmanship.

Realism: This is as close as you can come to the look, weight, feel, and action of the real 1911 in virtually every way! I'm not sure what more you could ask for? If you do want more then you are going to have to go out and pick your self up a real 45 auto 1911!


  • Extremely realistic airgun replica of an original Colt 1911 A1 styled 45 auto.
  • All metal construction - Good weight and solid feeling gun.
  • Would make an excellent training gun as it functions just like the real steel 1911 45 handgun.
  • Blowback action is very firm adding to the realism of shooting this weapon.
  • Field strips just like the real 1911 45 auto.
  • True 1911 Single action trigger, excellent pull, very smooth and light.
  • Good accuracy, not too bad amount off shots for this style of gun about 3 good magazines
  • Working grip safety.


  • It goes through CO2 very fast.
  • A bit hard to load up BBs.
  • No adjustable sights.
  • Finish may be hard to color match because it's not really black but rather a brownish black.

Comments: I was very impressed with this KWC product, it looks great, function just like the real steel in practically every way possible for an airgun replica. I got decent accuracy and very close to the claimed factory FPS and even a full 3 magazines worth of shots from one CO2, which is pretty good for a blowback airgun with this kind of kick to it. If you like the Classic Colt 1911 A1 style of pistol and if you are into airguns or are looking for a gun you can use when getting to the range is just not an option? Then the KWC Tanfoglio Witness 1911 is exactly what you need.

I love the 1911 look, I ordered actual WW1 1911 grips and with a little grinding they fit perfectly, and this gun looks awesome, not to bad for accuracy. There is one problem if you plan on shooting this thing a lot, the mag takes a long time to load.

Great gun while it works...

bought this gun about a week ago and loved it! I really liked how realistic this gun is and how well the blowback action works, however about a week after using this gun when i pulled the slide back it jammed when it forward then i slide would lock up and so would the magazine. But as i said its a great gun while it works..

Faulty clips

The gun is beautiful and works great however the 18 shot clip is bad quality double feeding bbs into the chamber causing jamming almost every shot. Ive read that putting only 7 or 8 shots in the clip corrects this fault however i mainly bought this gun due to the high capacity magazine so im not impressed. The gun itself is one of the nicest feeling replicas ive ever heald its really just the clip that doesnt meet standards

This video is a walkthrough Review of the Cybergun -Tanfoglio Witness 1911 CO2 BB Gun. I show off the gun close and take you through many of the features and do a side by side comparison with several of my other 1911 styled air pistols.

This is a very realistic and fun gun to shoot, it would make a great training pistol as just about everything about it works exactly like the real steel! I can't imagine getting any closer to the real 45 auto without actually buying one.

I also do some shooting tests, first through my Chrony Chronograph to see what the actual FPS really is and then I shoot at a target from 20 feet out to get a sense of the accuracy this gun has to offer.

I even find some time to show you the blowback action in slow motion using my high speed Casio camera set to 210 frames per second.

With the popularity of the KWC - Cybergun 1911 Blowback CO2 Pistols and how super realistic they are in so many ways, it is no surprise that people often ask me if they can replace the original grips with grips made for a real 1911.

The short answer is yes you can! You will have to be prepared to remove just a little bit of material from the backside of both grips near the bottom of the handle where there is an area that has been flared out to accommodate the CO2. Not really a big deal, you can use a Dremel for the quick and easy approach or even some sand paper if you don't mind taking a little more time.

In this YouTube Video I demonstrate using grips that fit a real 1911 and show you just exactly where you will need modify them to fit on the KWC and Cybergun CO2 Blowback 1911 pistol series.
