This BB air pistol is styled after the modern blowback pistol Tanfoglio M1911 A1 Tac BB gun. 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 KWC M1911 A1 Tac. 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.
Even the magazine looks and feels like a real magazine with similar weight and dimensions. The KWC 1911 A1 Tac 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 only problem with the classic 1911 is that it is missing a few of todays more modern features and that's what is so nice about the new KWC M1911 A1 Tac BB Pistol, it takes an all ready great design and makes it even better by adding the Tac style trigger and hammer, textured grips, ambidextrous safety, adjustable white dot sights and rail for add on accessories.
The front sight is fixed as with every 1911 style pistol. The rear one can be adjusted for direction.
The KWC M1911 A1 Tac BB airgun is as close as you can get to the real steel 1911 A1 45 auto but with an obvious more modern Tactical look to it.
The trigger pull on the KWC 1911 A1 Tac 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.
