KJ Works offers a wide variety of M1911 style pistols. This is a fully licensed product that bears official US Army and Colt markings engraved on the slide.
This Full Metal version comes with a gas system that utilizes a new lightweight piston that increases the weapon cycle rate which provides for a crisp and realistic blow back action. The frame and slide of the M1911A1 are constructed from high quality alloy and made to a 1:1 ratio of the real firearm it replicates. Weight is strategically distributed during production process to closely match the weight and balance of the real firearm. The only non-metal part is the plastic grips. Special textured handgrip offer firm hold of the weapon.
When you pick up the gun from the box, one is struck by two things: firstly, thanks to the all metal livery, it feels pretty weighty, second, you feel how solid it is. There is hardly any play in the slide, and it makes a nice metallic "clank" as the slide action is cycled. The fully adjustable Hop Up mechanism is located inside the slide. It may be reached by removing the slide from the frame and locating the adjusting wheel on the base of the barrel. The magazine capacity is 24 BBs which the highest one available for the pistols replicating the signle stack series of the 1911 models. Depending on the gas used, the model will shoot around 320 FPS out of the box.
The M1911 is a single-action, semi-automatic, magazine-fed, recoil-operated pistol chambered for the .45 ACP cartridge, which served as the standard-issue sidearm for the United States Armed Forces from 1911 to 1985. It was first used in later stages of the Philippine-American War, and was widely used in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. Designed by John Browning, the M1911 is the best-known of his designs to use the short recoil principle in its basic design. The pistol was widely copied, and this operating system rose to become the preeminent type of the 20th century and of nearly all modern centerfire pistols. Compact variants are popular civilian concealed carry weapons, because of the design's inherent slim width and the power of the .45 ACP cartridge.
