Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the KWA M1911A1 GBB Airsoft Pistol is right on par with what you would get from a quality 1911 single action only trigger, it has very little take up with a smooth crisp and very light light release. The grip safety si functional like a real 1911 also so it will needed to be engaged with your hand in order for the trigger to function.

Accuracy: I have not shot the KWA M1911A1 GBB Airsoft Pistol so far but plan to do so this week so I can have my Full Field Test Shooting Video Review for you ASAP. Keep posted as I this is next on my list!

Build Quality: KWA in my opinion makes some of the highest quality Airsoft guns in the industry in their given price range which I would say is about mid point. The KWA M1911A1 GBB Airsoft Pistol is an all metal (Alloy) Airsoft gun with nice finishing and extremely tight fit. The slide has virtually no wiggle and was needed just a little bit of work in to get it operating properly, perhaps the is why a small bottle of lubricant comes with the KWA M1911A1 GBB Airsoft Pistol. After a few shots everything worked nice and smoothly.

Realism: The KWA M1911A1 GBB Airsoft Pistol is a replica of a standard 1911 A1 Military 45 Auto and is a great looking and functioning replica. You will not find actual Colt or other manufacturer licensing other than the wording “M1911A1 Autoloading Pistol” own the left side of the slide. The version I received did have a slightly elongated barrel to allow for the addition of a red painted tip, Future orders may not have this I am hoping but even if yours is the same as mine you can easily cut down the barrel and or paint over the red portion of the tip. We also offer replacement barrels in our online Canada and US Replica Airguns Store.

Out of all the 1911’s on the market I have to say I like the good old fashioned simple design of the classic M1911 A1. No real bells and whistles on it and I like it that way. The KWA M1911A1 GBB Airsoft Pistol has also got to be one of the best made 1911’s in terms of fit and finish, the slide and frame tolerances are super tight with virtually no play or wiggle at all and the trigger is so nice and light. I just need to test it out and see how well it shoots now which I will be doing very soon so keep posted.
