Swiss Arms 1911 .177 Caliber CO2 BB Pistol

Type: BB air pistol
Manufacturer: Cybergun
Model: Tanfoglio Witness 1911
Materials: 99% all metal build
Weight: 2 pounds
Barrel: 4.38 inches Brass, non-rifled
Propulsion: CO2 x1
Action: Semi auto blowback, single action
Ammunition Type: Steel BBs 4.5mm
Ammunition Capacity: 18 rounds
FPS: 320


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 with 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 yourself up a real 45 auto 1911!

Pros:

  • 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.

Cons:

  • 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 Cybergun 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 Cybergun Tanfoglio Witness 1911 is exactly what you need.

Action:Semi-Automatic
FPS:300 to 350
Ammo Type:Steel BB
Power Source:Co2

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.
