Pros: -One of a handful of 4.5mm BB shooting Tokarev replicas out there. -Very solid and weighty gun for it’s size. Mostly all metal. -Full size drop out metal magazine that holds the CO2 and BB’s. -Recessed barrel adds to realism. -Non-blowback will increase fps and CO2 efficiency. -SAO trigger shoudl help with accuracy. -Did a good job of making the safety discreet by working it into the slide catch release.
Cons: -No action shooting since it has a SAO trigger/hammer. -No Blowback operation and no ejection port on slide? -Has the rather noticeable assembly screws on the slide.
I like certain things about the KWC Model TT-33 CO2 SAO Non-Blowback BB Pistol and then some things make it hard for me to like it. I like the weigth and feel and almost entirely full metal build including the full size drop out metal magazine. I also expect the single action only trigger to work well for getting some decent accuracy. On the other hand having to cock the hammer on what shoudl be a semi auto pistol is a bit weird and the lack of the ejection port completely on the slide is a big oversight in my books. Maybe the KWC Model TT-33 CO2 SAO Non-Blowback BB Pistol will redeem itself when I do my Field Test Shooting video next week and sway me back to the in favor side? We will have to wait and see.
