UMAREX COLT SPECIAL COMBAT CO2 4.5MM BB PISTOL REVIEW

Related Posts:

Type: BB air pistol.
Manufacturer: Umarex.
Model: Colt Special Combat.
Materials: Mostly metal construction with a few plastic parts.
Weight: 2.1 pounds.
Barrel: 4.88 inches, metal non-rifled.
Propulsion: CO2 x 1.
Action: Semi auto, single and double action.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 19 round magazine.
FPS: 394.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Colt Special Combat is very nice in both single and double action mode with the single action having an extremely light pull making it very easy to shoot on target.
Accuracy: I shot this air gun at a target from 20 feet away in a free standing position, and it performed well getting a 2 inch grouping close to the center of the target. The sights can be adjusted for your individual shooting style. My Chrony testing with a five shot averaged result was 387 fps.
Build Quality: This is an almost all metal air gun with good fit and finish and a nice hefty 2.1 pound weight to it. You really can't ask for much more! The only plastic parts to speak of are the grips and the CO2 screw tab. In a perfect world, real wood grips and an allen key based CO2 screw would really finish this gun off nicely.
Realism: The Umarex Colt Special Combat is a licensed replica of the real 45 auto 1911 pistol. It is a very close looking copy of a 1911 pistol with the exception of the trigger mechanism.
Purchased From: The Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • Almost all metal construction - good weight and solid feeling gun!
  • Working slide and slide catch.
  • Great looking gun with its two-tone finish.
  • Adjustable rear sights.
  • Nice full size drop out magazine (holds CO2 and BB's).
  • Double and Single Action, very smooth and light.

Cons:

  • A really hard to get in North America making it a bit pricy.
  • Trigger is not like the actual 1911 style trigger.
  • Would have been awesome to have actual real wooden grips.
  • I would rather have a CO2 screw then the tab on the magazine.
  • Blowback action would have been nice.

Comments:
The Umarex Colt Special Combat is a real collectors item and a real looker of an airgun, it's a bit too bad Umarex hasn't brought this air pistol into North America, I'm not sure what their reasoning is? Even at the somewhat inflated imported price, it's still a great BB gun to own and shoot and there isn't really too much more you can ask for in a replica airgun!

Preview - CZ 75 P-07 DUTY - Dan Wesson Revolvers - Colt Special Combat

Related Posts:

Today, my ASG CZ 75 P-07 DUTY and Dan Wesson 6 and 8 inch Revolvers arrived along with an Umarex Colt Special Combat. This is kind of a big deal because all of these guns virtually don't exist here in North America. I have been wanting these guns for some time but until now, I had no way to get them! I guess the best part of having a web-store is I have a say in what we are going to carry. And lucky for me I have a really resourceful product manager who was able to locate and import these fine guns not only for myself but also for anyone else here in North America wanting to place an order for one in our Replica Airguns Store.

Let's take a quick look - I won't get too detailed as I will be doing dedicated reviews for all of these guns shortly...

The ASG Dan Wesson's:  6 inch Silver and 8 inch Black

Right off the bat, both of these guns are just flawless. Their finish and quality control is top notch. They have a good solid weight to them and all the moving parts feel tight and responsive. They offer both double and single action and come with a speed loader and six brass shells where the 4.5mm BB's are located. You also have the option of using the included accessory rail for mounting a scope or Red Dot sight.

ASG CZ 75 P-07 DUTY

Again I was really impressed with the quality of this blowback 4.5mm BB shooter! Even though the CZ 75 P-07 DUTY has a polymer frame it has good weight to it, probably because of the metal slide and good usage of metal in other areas like its drop out 20 round metal magazine and metal even in the CO2 door. There is amazing detail and realism all over this gun, it even has the original 9x19 markings on the slide and ejection port, you would be hard pressed to tell the difference between this air gun version and the real steel without a very close inspection!

Umarex Colt Special Combat

OK, so the Colt Special Combat isn't a blowback BB pistol! Once you pick it up and take a close look at all the work that went into this gun, you will soon forget all about the blowback. The tradeoff here is more power and usable shots along with features like an all metal design, a working slide, a full size drop free metal magazine, adjustable sights and both a single and double action trigger. Having a classic 1911 that is as nice as this one in my airgun collection is a real treat!
