Type: Airsoft pistol.
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.
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.
