Pros: -Good weight and solid feeling gun. Lots of metal where you need it. -All metal full size drop out magazine holds CO2 and 12 pellets. -Decent looking replica of 1911 A1. -One of a few CO2 1911 pellet pistols out there. -Recessed barrel helps with look of realism. -Rifled barrel will help with accuracy. -Non-blowback operation with increased fps and CO2 efficiency. -More realistic looking than the Umarex pellet 1911 for a lot less money.
Cons: -No blowback - slide does not move either. -Hammer moves but does not cock so no single action shooting. -Trigger action is bit heavy but not not too bad for a double action trigger.
I’m a bit on the fence with the KWC M1911 Non-Blowback CO2 Pellet Pistol. It looks really good and has a lot of potential in terms of power and accuracy over the Cybergun/KWC Blowback BB version which has always been a favorite of mine. Maybe it will impress me when I get to my Field Test Shooting Review for it but will it be enough to win me over the realism of shooting the full blowback BB version? I guess we will have to find out!
