Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the AW Custom Black Ace HX2003 Hi-Capa CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is typical of a 1911 single action only trigger, there is virtually no take-up at all and the release is supper light and crips. There really is no trigger reset to speak of making it a really fast action shooter.
Accuracy: At this point I have not shot the AW Custom Black Ace HX2003 Hi-Capa CO2 Blowback BB Pistol. I was a bit surprised by the claimed fps of 375 since most full blowback CO2 BB airguns generally get around 330 fps. I hope to follow up this table top review with a field test shooting review very sons we can all find out the real world velocity and also see how accurate the AW Custom Black Ace HX2003 Hi-Capa CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is.
Build Quality: The AW Custom Black Ace HX2003 Hi-Capa CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is rather well made with a full metal slide and upper metal receiver. It feels great in the hand with its 2.36 pound weight and beefy grips. The fit and finish is bang on and I really like the matt finish that does not seem to be earring at all in the high spots.
Realism: The AW Custom Black Ace HX2003 Hi-Capa CO2 Blowback BB Pistol like many other metal full blowback Airguns is very realistic and hard to differentiate form a real steel 1911 of this kind. In terms of operation the AW Custom Black Ace HX2003 Hi-Capa CO2 Blowback BB Pistol functions just like a powder burned but with a lot less notice and less recoil but enough to rock your hands back and forth a bit while you shoot it.
Out of the box already upgraded internally and externally.
Mostly metal gun, has great weight and feel to it.
Full blowback operation along with a full size drop out metal magazine.
Claimed 375 fps is good for a full blowback (Airsoft) styled BB gun.
Nice fiber optic adjustable sights and included plate for mounting a red dot sight.
Excellent fit and finish.
Flared magwell and textured grips assure a good grip.
Fairly light double action trigger.
Warning instructions on slide are very discreet!
Overall a great looking custom 1911!
A bit hard to get right now at least here in Canada.
Have to remove slide to adjust windage on rear sig
The AW Custom Black Ace HX2003 Hi-Capa CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is a really nice gun all around and one of the few airguns that comes out of the box already upgraded and modified with enhanced features that truly improve the comfort, performance and efficiency of the gun as well as cosmetic upgrades for looks. Some key features that stand out for me are the fiber optic adjustable sights, Skeletonize trigger and hammer, textured pistol grips and flared magwell and of course the vented barrel/slide. Hopefully we can get some into our Replica Airguns Online Store in the near future…
