KWC Model 1911 All Metal Non-Blowback CO2 Airsoft Pistol Table Top Review

Type: Airsoft pistol.
Manufacturer: KWC.
Model: Model 1911 All Metal.
Materials: Mostly metal build.
Weight: 2.4 pounds.
Barrel: 5.2 inches, non-rifled.
Propulsion: CO2 x1.
Action: Semi auto non-blowback, double action only.
Ammunition Type: Airsoft plastic 6mm.
Magazine Capacity: 15 rounds
FPS: ? (1.6 Joules)

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the KWC Model 1911 All Metal Non-Blowback CO2 Airsoft Pistol was about medium to hard but I have definitely experienced heavier trigger pulls on many double action only Airguns. It is nice that the trigger has the look of a 1911 and not your typical lever styled trigger. I did find the trigger to be very usable and the release point is smooth and fairly predictable.

Accuracy: I have yet to perform my field test shooting component for the KWC Model 1911 All Metal Non-Blowback CO2 Airsoft Pistol, however I have reviewed the same gun in 4.5mm Steel BB Cybergun version and here is what I had to say about that the Steel BB version: "Accuracy was decent but not outstanding, I got around a 2.5 inch grouping from a 20 foot away free standing position, shooting just to the left and high on the target. I did find that I was able to zone in a bit better with the Cybergun GSR 1911 as I got used to the trigger. I also put the Cybergun Sig Sauer GSR through my Chrony Chronograph and got very close the manufacturers 397 claimed feet per second, actually starting off well above it and settling down to around the 370 FPS mark. My 8 shot average on a new CO2 was actually 422 FPS."

Build Quality: The build quality for the KWC Model 1911 is very good, this is an almost all metal Airsoft gun with a few exceptions like the hammer, trigger. magazine release, slide catch and grip safety. Pretty much everything else is metal including the slide, frame, magazine, and even the grips. The finish is very good and since there is lots of metal with minimal moving parts and less to go wrong, this should make for a very reliable pistol.

Realism: The KWC Model 1911 CO2 Airsoft Pistol is very close to the look, weight, and feel of the real steal Sig-Arms 1911 GSR! Even the 1911 style trigger was replicated as best as it could be given it being double action only. It would have been nice to have a single action trigger and a working slide to finish off the illusion but overall the GSR is a really nice copy of the real steel Sig Sauer GSR Sig-Arms 1911 firearm.
Available From: The Replica Airguns Canada Store

Pros:

  • Excellent weight and very solid feeling gun.
  • Mostly Metal design.
  • All metal magazine holds CO2 and Airsoft BB's
  • Very Accurate Sig-Arms Sig Sauer 1911 GSR Replica.
  • Should have good FPS and lots of shots per CO2 based on my 4.5mm BB version testing!
  • Very affordable and good value for the money.
  • Rail for mounting accessories.
  • Nice sights with white dots front and back.
  • Recessed barrel for added realism.
  • True 1911 style trigger even though it is double action only.
  • Very affordable price tag.

Cons:

  • Non-blowback and the slide does not move either.
  • The hammer is only for show and does not cock for single action shots.
  • Trigger action is bit heavy but not not too bad for a double action trigger.
  • Non adjustable rear sights.

Comments:
For a relatively inexpensive All Metal Airsoft gun you get a lot for your money with the KWC Model 1911, most importantly a very accurate reproduction of the real steal Sig-Arms Sig Sauer 1911 GSR firearm! If you're a 1911 fan and want to pick up an Airsoft gun that won't set you back too much, then the KWC Model 1911 would make a great choice with it's heavy full metal weight, full size drop out metal magazine, accurate reproduction of the real steal Sig-Arms GSR and again that very affordable price tag.

Cybergun Sig Sauer GSR Sigarms All Metal CO2 BB Gun Review

Type: BB air pistol.
Manufacturer: Cybergun.
Model: GSR SIGARMS.
Materials: Mostly metal build.
Weight: 2.4 pounds.
Barrel: 5.2 inches, brass, non-rifled.
Propulsion: CO2 x1.
Action: Semi auto non-blowback, double action only.
Ammunition Type: Steel BBs 4.5mm.
Ammunition Capacity: 21 rounds
FPS: 397
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Sig Sauer GSR Sigarms was about medium to hard but I have definitely experienced heavier trigger pulls on some guns. It is nice that the trigger is in the style of a 1911 and not your typical lever styled trigger. This may be one reason why the pull is a bit heavier on the GSR.

Accuracy: Accuracy was decent but not outstanding, I got around a 2.5 inch grouping from a 20 foot away free standing position, shooting just to the left and high on the target. I did find that I was able to zone in a bit better with the Cybergun GSR as I got used to the trigger. I also put the Cybergun Sig Sauer GSR through my Chrony Chronograph and got very close the manufacturers 397 claimed feet per second, actually starting off well above it and settling down to around the 370 FPS mark. My 8 shot average on a new CO2 was actually 422 FPS.
Build Quality: Very good, this is an almost all metal gun with a few exceptions like the hammer, trigger. magazine release, slide catch and the outer barrel. Pretty much everything else is metal including the slide, frame, magazine, and even the grips. The finish is very good and the Cybergun GSR worked flawlessly for me.

Realism: The Cybergun Sig Sauer GSR is very close to the look, weight, and feel of the real GSR Sigarms! Even the 1911 style trigger was used and licensed trademarks on the slide. It would have been nice to have a single action trigger and a working slide to finish off the illusion but overall the GSR is a really nice copy of the real steel Sig Sauer GSR Sigarms firearm.
Available From: The Replica Airguns Store

Pros:

  • Excellent weight and very solid feeling gun.
  • Mostly Metal design.
  • Very Accurate Sig Sauer GSR Sigarms with licensing.
  • Nice high fps results close to manufacturers specifications.
  • Very affordable and good value for the money.
  • Lots of shots per CO2.
  • Nice sights with white dots front and back.
  • Magazine holds both the CO2 and BB's - always nice.
  • Recessed barrel for added realism.
  • True 1911 style trigger even though it is double action only.

Cons:

  • Non-blowback and the slide does not move either.
  • The hammer is only for show and does not cock for single action shots.
  • Non adjustable rear sights.
  • Trigger action is bit on the heavy side.

Comments:
I ordered my Cybergun Sig Sauer GSR Sigarms with two other Cybergun pistols (The Jericho 941 and Sig Sauer SP2022), all of them in the lower and more affordable price point, the GSR is the heaviest out of the bunch, most likely because of the metal frame. For a relatively inexpensive BB gun you get a lot for your money, most importantly a very accurate reproduction of the real GSR Sigarms firearm! If you're a 1911 fan and want to pick up an airgun that won't set you back too much, then the Cybergun GSR would make a great choice with it's heavy weight, full size drop out metal magazine, and true 1911 styled trigger.

Cybergun - KWC Sig Sauer SP2022 - Jericho 941 - Sigarms GSR Preview

I wanted to give you a quick preview of some very nice yet inexpensive Cybergun - KWC BB guns I received today, and I am happy to say I'm also selling them in the Replica Airguns Store.

The Cybergun Air Pistols are the Sig Sauer SP2022, the Jericho 941, and the Sigarms GSR. All of which have metal slides, full size all metal drop out magazines and corresponding licensing and trademarks. Make sure to scroll down to the bottom of this preview where you will find my YouTube video Preview for these Cybergun Air Pistols.

First off is the Cybergun Sig Sauer SP2022:
This BB shooting Sig Sauer SP2022 is a metal and polymer gun with a metal slide and polymer frame just like the real steel it is licensed under. The full size drop out all metal magazine holds the 23 BB's and CO2. The Sig Sauer SP2022 shoots 4.5mm steel BB's, has a rated velocity of 328 fps, weighs in at 1.7 pounds, has a double action only trigger and is just over 7 inches long. The SP2022 is probably my favorite gun out of all of them so far!

2nd we have the Cybergun IWI Jericho 941:
The Jericho 941 is a replica of the Baby Desert Eagle and is the most powerful out of the group with a claimed velocity of 443 fps. The Jericho 941 also has a full metal slide, metal outer barrel, and full size metal drop out magazine that holds 22 4.5mm steel BB's and the CO2. The Jericho 941 weighs in at a hefty 2 pounds and is over 8 inches long with a double action only trigger. It also is claimed to get more than 200 shots out of a single CO2 cartridge!

Lastly we have the Sig Sauer GSR Sigarms:
By far the heaviest gun out of the trio, the GSR comes in at 2.4 pounds and is made almost entirely out of metal, even including the grips so if your looking for a gun that feels the part this is the one for you. The Sig Sauer GSR also has the full size drop out metal magazine like the rest of them and can hold 21 4.5mm steel BB's along with the CO2 in it. You can expect to get close to 400 fps and the 1911 styled GSR even has a true 1911 styled trigger, although it is double action only.

All three of these Cybergun - KWC value priced air pistols are available at the Replica Airguns Store so make sure to drop in and get yours today!
