Cybergun Colt 1911 MKIV CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol Field Test Review

Here is my follow up Shooting Field Test video for my Cybergun Colt 1911 MKIV CO2 Table Top Review. During this Field Test Shooting video review I shoot 5 rounds of .20 gram Airsoft BB's through my Chronograph to find out the average FPS. I also step back 30 feet and setup my shooting stance by resting my hands on a sand bag and standing in the back for a fairly secure shooting position. As per most of my accuracy tests, I loaded my Cybergun Colt 1911 MKIV CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol with 10 rounds in the magazine to see what kind of grouping I could get on the paper target..

I was a bit surprised by the FPS for the Cybergun Colt 1911 MKIV CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol I tested. The claimed FPS by the factory is 360 using .20 gram BB's, the temperature outside was decently warm and I was using a brand new CO2 so I should have gotten fairly close the this velocity. As it turned out on this day the gun I was testing shot right around 300 FPS which is great for close quarters Airsoft games but perhaps a bit weak for the longer ranges of outside games.

When it came to accuracy, I did find the Cybergun Colt 1911 MKIV CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol shot a bit high and to the left right out of the box but since it has a fully adjustable trigger this did not concern me. I was pleased to see that I was able to get a 2 inch 10 shot grouping from 30 feet back using a semi rested position which is about right for an Airsoft Pistol at this range.

While testing the Cybergun Colt 1911 MKIV CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol I did not have nay mechanical problems, everything worked exactly as it was meant to , the Blowback was nice and crisp with that usually 1911 sluggishness I have come to expect. The trigger is pretty typical for a single action 1911 styled trigger which in some cases can actually be a little bit on the light side which with the Cybergun Colt 1911 MKIV CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol was not the case. Over all a really pleasurable Airsoft Pistol to shoot!

Cybergun Colt 1911 MKIV CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol Table Top Review

Type: Blowback Airsoft Pistol.
Manufacturer: ? - Distributed by Cybergun.
Model: Colt 1911 MKIV.
Materials: Almost all metal.
Weight: 2.36 pounds (1070 grams).
Barrel: Metal non-rifled.
Propulsion: CO2 x 1.
Action: Semi auto blowback, single action only.
Ammunition Type: 6mm plastic Airsoft BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 19 round full size metal magazine.
FPS: 361 using .20 gram BB's.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Cybergun Colt 1911 MKIV CO2 Blowback Airsoft 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 light and crisp release. The working grip safety is a nice touch requiring your palm to be pressed against it for the trigger and hammer to operate. I also like the Tactical Style Trigger found on the Cybergun Colt 1911 MKIV.

Accuracy: At this point I have not shot the Cybergun Colt 1911 MKIV CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol, I imagine it should perform well considering it has spin-up up and a fully adjustable rear sight just in case my shooting is off center a bit. According to the manufacturers claimed fps, we should get somewhere in the mid to high 300 fps range using .20 gram Plastic Airsoft BB's.

Build Quality: I am kind of sitting on the fence with the Colt 1911 MKIV Pistol, on one hand it is an all metal gun with what looks to be fairly decent fit and finish but on the other hand it feels kind of light weight especially with the heavy magazine out of it compared to even the KWC 1911's I have reviewed so often. It may be that more aluminum is being used in this pistol which could actually be a good thing since aluminum would be a higher quality metal over your typical zinc alloy used in most Airsoft and Airguns these days. In terms of operation, I feel like some of the mechanical parts need a bit of break in time, but I have found this to be true with many real guns I have used.

Realism: The Cybergun Colt 1911 MKIV CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is a close replica of the real steel Colt 1911 45 auto but with a more modern Tactical look to it, sporting a Tac style trigger and hammer, double stack magazine, ambidextrous safety and adjustable rear sight. This gun is nearly all metal with very full blowback operation making it feel real to hold in the hand and shoot.
Available From: The Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • All metal construction.
  • Full length blowback operation.
  • Accurate Government 1911 styled replica.
  • True 1911 single action trigger, excellent pull, very smooth and light.
  • Accurate trigger design and working grip safety.
  • Double stack metal magazine holds the CO2 and extra BB’s.
  • Fully Colt Licensed.
  • Full adjustable rear sight.
  • Tactical trigger and hammer with ambidextrous trigger for a more modern look and feel.

Cons:

  • Comes with the ugly red tip that is really stuck on the gun.
  • Can kind of tell the Chinese quality a bit.
  • Licensing is not engraved right into the gun.

Comments:
Overall the Cybergun Colt 1911 MKIV CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is another nice option if you're looking for a Colt Government 1911 Styled Airsoft pistol. Keep in mind this one is Chinese made rather than made in Taiwan. Not sure how that will effect performance and longevity. I have owned Chinese guns that have shot and faired well for me so I am not too worried about it. With its double stack magazine you will find the Cybergun Colt 1911 MKIV to have a fairly large handle so it may not be suitable for those with smaller hands. I do think the Cybergun Colt 1911 MKIV CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol features a nice combination of classic Government 1911 looks with a few modern tactical components lie the upgraded trigger, hammer, ambidextrous safety and rear adjustable sight.
