G&G Xtreme 45 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol Field Test Shooting Review

This is the official Field Test or Shooting Video Review for the G&G Xtreme 45 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol. If you haven't checked out my Table top Video Review for the G&G Xtreme 45, make sure to do so as I have some more photos there and also all the specifications and details including the Pros & Cons for the G&G Xtreme 45.

In this part of the review I test the G&G Xtreme 45 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol using my Chronograph to see what the 5 shot feet per second average is using a mostly brand new CO2. I got pretty close to 400 fps which is not bad considering the very cold day and the fact that I had to reset my Chronograph and missed the most powerful first several shots.

I also take the G&G Xtreme 45 back 30 feet and shoot it at a target using a semi rested position (sand bag up front, standing in the back) and again I was plagued by technical difficulties and had to redo this part of the test as one of my cameras was not working. I did get a nice 2 inch 10 shot grouping the first time around, the second go resulted in a 3 inch 10 shot group which is pretty good for an airsoft pistol using light weight .20 gram BB's at this range.

All in all the G&G Xtreme 45 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol performed very well for me and considering the fairly low price point and long list of features I would have to say it is good value for the low cost, and it has some pretty nice curb appeal going for it too.

G&G Xtreme 45 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol Table Top Review

Type: Airsoft pistol.
Manufacturer: G&G.
Model: Xtreme 45.
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 blowback, single action only.
Ammunition Type: 6mm plastic Airsoft BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 16 round magazine.
FPS: 400+.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the G&G Xtreme 45 is very smooth in single action only mode with there being just a bit of take-up and then a fairly light release, the light blowback and single action trigger allow fast sequential shooting with good groupings.
Accuracy: This is somewhat yet to be determined in my upcoming Field Test Shooting portion of this review but I did get the chance to take it outside and put some rounds down range, performance overall seemed decent.

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. very similar in build to the Umarex Colt Special Combat 4.5mm BB Pistol reviewed earlier! The only plastic parts to speak of are the grips. In a perfect world, real wood grips would be nice but I have feeling that real 1911 grips may just fit this gun?
Realism: The G&G Xtreme 45 is a very good replica of the classic 45 auto 1911 styled pistol, with the exception of the trigger mechanism. I was happy to see if had a single action only trigger like you would find in a 1911 so this was a bonus. Overall weigh and feel make this Airsoft pistol a very believable gun and the blowback although light gives some nice feedback when shooting and the allowable single action trigger on followup shot.

Purchased From: The Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • Lots of metal and good overall weight.
  • Blowback operation (enough to give it some shot feedback and also cocks the hammer for easy single action trigger pull).
  • High fps for a blowback Airsoft pistol.
  • Expect to get decent amount of shots per CO2.
  • Fully adjustable rear sight.
  • Attractive two tone finish.
  • Magazine is all metal full size and hold both the CO2 and BB's and has a flush hidden CO2 screw.
  • Rain for accessories.
  • Very affordable gun considering all of the features it comes with.

Cons:

  • Blowback operation is light and not a full cycle.
  • Slide catch does not engage on the last round.
  • Does not have a true 1911 styled trigger but at least is single action.

Comments:
The G&G Xtreme 45 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is a great combination of realism and practicality toped with lots of great features you don't often find in a gun in this price range: Almost all metal, blowback operation, good fps and CO2 usage, fully adjustable rear sight, full size drop out metal magazine with hidden tab, awesome looks, and low price point. If your in the market for a good all around 1911 styled Airsoft blowback pistol, definitely put this one on the check list!

KWC Silver Desert Eagle - KWC Model 1911 - KWC Taurus PT99 - G&G Xtreme 45 Update Video

This Update video addresses the similarities between the KWC and Cybergun product lines, specifically the KWC Model 1911 vs. the Cybergun Tanfoglio Witness 1911 and the KWC Taurus PT99 vs. the Cybergun GSG 92. In a nutshell, they are all made by KWC and are exactly the same with the exception of some of the licensing and branding that goes on the slides. Cybergun simply contracts KWC to make the guns for them and add some slight different printing. All parts are interchangeable.

I also show you the Silver Finish Blowback Airsoft KWC Desert Eagle and mention again that the licensing on this one is kind of hit and miss depending on what KWC sends us. So when you order one there is an additional surprise waiting for you when you open the box :)

Lastly, I show for the first time a G&G Airsoft product, the G&G Xtreme 45 Blowback that looks an awful lot like the Umarex Colt Special Combat chambered in 4.5mm Steel BB. The main differences are that the Colt Special Combat is a BB gun and the Xtreme 45 is an Airsoft gun. The G&G has blowback where as the Colt Special Combat does not have blowback.

Make sure to checkout my YouTube video of this product update for even more info!
