Build Quality: Excellent, with almost all metal construction, good weight and craftsmanship.
Realism: This is as close as you can come to the look, weight, feel, and action of the real 1911 in virtually every way! I'm not sure what more you could ask for? If you do want more then you are going to have to go out and pick your self up up a real 45 auto 1911!
Purchased From: The Replica Airguns Store

Pros:

  • Extremely realistic airgun replica of an original Colt 1911 A1 styled 45 auto.
  • All metal construction - Good weight and solid feeling gun.
  • Would make an excellent training gun as it functions just like the real steel 1911 45 handgun.
  • Blowback action is very firm adding to the realism of shooting this weapon.
  • Field strips just like the real 1911 45 auto.
  • True 1911 Single action trigger, excellent pull, very smooth and light.
  • Good accuracy, not too bad amount off shots for this style of gun about 3 good magazines
  • Working grip safety.

Cons:

  • It goes through CO2 very fast.
  • A bit hard to load up BB's.
  • No adjustable sights.
  • Finish may be hard to color match because it's not really black but rather a brownish black.

Comments:
I was very impressed with this Cybergun product, it looks great, function just like the real steel in practically every way possible for an airgun replica. I got decent accuracy and very close to the claimed factory FPS and even a full 3 magazines worth of shots from one CO2, which is pretty good for a blowback airgun with this kind of kick to it. If you like the Classic Colt 1911 A1 style of pistol and if you are into airguns or are looking for a gun you can use when getting to the range is just not an option? Then the Cybergun Tanfoglio Witness 1911 is exactly what you need.
