Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Palco Blackwater 1911 R2 BB Pistol is exactly what you would expect from a true single action 1911 styled pistol. It has a short take up and then a nice light and crisp pull to it. Because of the similar mechanics not only to the trigger but other aspects of this gun, it would make an awesome low-cost trainer to be used when your real 1911 can not be.

Accuracy: I shot the Palco Blackwater 1911 R2 gun at a target from 20 feet away in a semi-rested position, and it performed well getting a 2 inch grouping just a bit off center of the target. The sights are adjustable for windage so zeroing the Palco Blackwater 1911 R2 BB pistol in would not be much of a problem! My initial Chrony testing puts this gun right in the 300-320 FPS range which is just fine for this style of heavy full realistic blowback action BB shooter. I also managed to get three very good magazines' worth of shots with some extra CO2 left for a potential 4th magazine. If you slow your shooting down and let the gun and CO2 warm up between magazines you can get 4 magazines with this gun for sure.

Build Quality: Palco did a great job with the BW1911 R2. The quality and build characteristics may even be just a bit better than my other Palco/Cybergun blowback air pistols. Everything that should be metal is the same on this as the original. The slide and barrel wiggle are minimal and the finish seems to be wearing fairly well on this Palco airgun. I do expect over time for some of the finish to wear off on the high points but this can also give the gun some character.

Realism: The Palco BW1911 R2 BB airgun is as close as you can get to the real steel version but with an obvious more modern tactical look to it. The tactical version has the addition of a Tac style trigger and hammer, textured grips, ambidextrous safety, rail for accessories. This gun is nearly all metal with very heavy blowback making it feel real to hold in the hand and shoot.

Pros:

  • All metal construction - good weight and solid feeling gun
  • Nice heavy blowback action
  • Very accurate 1911 R2 styled replica in many ways
  • True 1911 single action trigger, excellent pull, very smooth and light
  • Accurate trigger design and working grip safety
  • Decent accuracy, not too bad amount of shots for this style of gun
  • All metal full size dropout magazine
  • Love the upgraded tactical features (Tac style trigger and hammer, textured grips, ambidextrous safety, rail for accessories)

Cons:

  • Sacrifice FPS and shots per CO2 because of the heavy blowback but worth it
  • Finish on the Cybergun and Palco guns can wear off on the high points a bit but some people like this look

Comments: I love my Cybergun BW1911 R2 as do many of you based on the amount of sales we have had on this unit! After all, who does not appreciate such an accurate replica? The only problem with the classic 1911 is that it is missing a few of today's more modern features and that's what is so nice abut the new Palco Blackwater 1911 R2 BB Pistol. It takes an already great design and makes it even better by adding the Tac style trigger and hammer, textured grips, ambidextrous safety, and rail for add on accessories. So if you're a 1911 fan looking for as close as you can get to the real steel in a more modern version than look no further, this is it!

I have not done a Table Top Review for the Blackwater BW1911 R2 Blowback BB Pistol but I have done a full Table Top and Field Test review for the KWC M1911 Model 1911 Tac A1 which is essentially the exact same gun as the Blackwater BW1911 R2 but without the silver highlights and Blackwater licensing.

I did want to take the Blackwater BW1911 R2 back a bit further than usual and shoot it from 30 feet out to see what kind of results I would get and got pretty close to a two inch group that was well centered but just a bit under the bulls eye. This is not going to be the hottest gun in terms of fps as my Chronograph confirmed for us coming in at just a bit over 300 fps. I can see this BB pistol hitting the claimed 320 fps and even faster on a hotter test day.
