This BB air pistol is styled after the everlasting 1911 pistol. This means it functions very similarly to the real steel. It is a very hefty gun made almost entirely from metal and has a very snappy blowback action which adds to its shooting realism.
KWC did a great job with the M1911. 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 KWC airgun. The only non metal part are the wood-like polymer grips.
Even the magazine looks and feels like a real magazine with similar weight and dimensions. The KWC 1911 shoots very accurately for a BB airgun and has fairly decent power considering its blowback function, though this does result in heavy usage of CO2.
The front and rear sightes are fixed as with every 1911 style pistol.
The trigger pull on the KWC 1911 Blowback 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 and light 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 cannot be.
You can two or three good magazine 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.
The magazine holds 17 4.5mm steel BBs which is a little more than the real deal, but it is excellent for target practice.
