Comments: The Swiss Arms SA1911 BB pistol series are the closest thing you can find to the real thing. This 4.5mm CO2 airgun includes all the same features as the real steel 1911, including a beavertail grip, slide serrations, and drop free magazine. The TRS (Tactical Rail System) model features a lower 20mm Picatinny rail, so you can enhance your shooting sessions with a laser sight or flashlight mount.
Very detailed replica, works and takes down like a real 1911. I have to say it is fantastic! If you like 1911's this is a must have, especially in this finish. It is beautiful. Very realistic to use too! It's feels a little lighter than a real 1911 though, but I think it might be because of some of the aluminum parts in it that are lighter weight. The slide is not stainless but rather aluminum like the rest of the frame but it still feels overall very realistic. The blow back is awesome on this, it actually kicks a little bit too which is neat. The trigger is nice and crisp. Sights are not adjustable (as far as I can tell), but mine shoots pretty much dead on target out of the box. I do like the white dots too because it makes sighting easier especially on dark targets. The fps seems the same as advertised, which is great considering it's a full blowback model. I get a little over 3 mags per co2 cartridge with it. Accuracy is decent for a bb gun seems to shoot roughly just over 2 inch groups from 8-10 yards but at further distances you might start to get a few more flyers like you would with most bb pistols. For a gun with blowback and bb's it is pretty darn good. If I were to really nit pick I would say it'd be nice to have the groups slightly tighter but I'm not complaining as 2 inch groups are pretty standard for these types of autoloader blowbacks. It works well enough for what its for. Reloading is pretty easy if you have finger nails to hold the follower down.
I gave it 5 stars because it looks amazing and is super fun to shoot, fits really nice in the hand. Its a superb replica for sure. I've put about 12 or so mags through it now and it has functioned flawlessly. No jamming, leaky mags or other issues so far. Like the manual says, it's good to apply pellgun oil or rws chamber lube to the top of the c02 each time you put one in to prevent the seals from drying out. It is a must-have fantastic little 1911 replica
If I were to change anything there are only a few small things, but none of them are really issues to be honest. The finish does hold relatively well but where parts have friction it does seem to wear a little bit. Luckily on this silver version it really isn't noticeable unless you're looking for it. On a black version it would really show more, and honestly it does seem to hold up much better than the black paint on other models I've seen. On this particular model its so minimal that I wouldn't worry about it. It seems all KWC airguns have this wearing on the finish to some extent.
It comes with plastic grips, but it would be cool if they came with wood grips. Luckily you can buy beautiful 1911 grips separately that are wood that look amazing and fit this model (but may require some grinding). I will probably put those on this one. I'm just happy that real 1911 grips fit on this which I think is pretty great.
The metal used on it seems to be aluminum, would have been cool if it were a heavier steel but the added weight would likely affect the blowback, but I mean it is an all metal design with decent weight so that alone is awesome - so I really can't complain. So there really aren't any actual issues. Like I say, performance wise it's excellent. So I'd say this 1911 replica is must have. I would highly recommend.
I'm glad I purchased it, replicaairguns shipped it out really fast too. I'm completely happy with it and would recommend it to anyone who likes 1911's. I'm so very glad I got this one with the stainless look to it too. In real life it looks more sharp than in the pics I'd say. You can't go wrong with this model.
I know this video is going to excite many of you if you already like the basic KWC 1911 and PT92, also known as the Tanfoglio Witness, GSG 92 and many other almost exactly the same guns from Swiss Arms, Gletcher, Cybergun and even Umarex and Crosman.
There are tons of these KWC CO2 Blowback BB Pistols and Airsoft Pistols on the market in various versions with all kinds of different licensing on them and I have seen lots of custom modification photos from my viewers showing me how thy have striped and polished their KWC blowback Air Pistols and even added real wood grips.
That's why I think it's super cool that now you can get your already blinged out and polished Cybergun/KWC 1911 or PT92 and really for not a lot more money at the end of the day! The real problems is availability since these stainless versions are in high demand.
So what are we looking at in this video? I have two Cybergun/KWC 1911's one is a basic 1911 A1 with a parkerized and stainless frame and slide, you also have a real wood look grip (Looks like wood but is not actually wood...) The basic Swiss Arms 1911 has been called the SA 1911 Seventies Stainless Pistol while the more tactical Swiss Arms SA 1911 is rightfully called the SA 1911 Tactical Rail System since it has a lot more tactical features like a rail, ambidextrous safety, white dot sights, and tactical trigger and hammer.
The Swiss Arms SA 92 Stainless which is essentially very similar to the GSG 92 or KWC PT92 again offers a parkerized and stainless frame and slide with the simulated wood grips.
Make sure to watch my update video for these three very attractive Swiss Arms CO2 Blowback BB Pistols from Cybergun/KWC and if you're interested in purchasing one you like then see if we have them in stock in our Canada Replica Airguns Store:
I had a chance to take out my Swiss Arms SA 92 Stainless Version and Swiss Arms SA 1911 Tactical Rail System CO2 Blowback BB Pistols and see how they performed in the Sea Can Airgun Shooting range and they did pretty good, I have treated very similar KWC version of these guns in previous videos and for the most part the Swiss Arms Stainless Versions are just a little prettier cosmetically. I didn't test out the Swiss Arms SA 1911 Seventies Stainless Pistol since I expect it would have performed the same as the other 1911 in this Field Test Shooting Video.
So how did they do? First off I fired five rounds through my now almost perfectly working Chrony Chronograph and the SA 92 ended up shotgun a little faster with an average of right around 320 fps while the Swiss Arms SA 1911 Tactical shot an average of 302 fps. I was using brand new Sig Sauer CO2 and RWS Match Grade Precision Steel 4.5mm BB's for the entire review.
