Another Field Test Shooting video coming to you this week from the Replica Airgun Sea Can Indoor Airgun Range! Today I test out the KWC CQBP M45 A1 CO2 Airsoft Pistol to see what kind of real world velocity it gets and how accurate it is shooting a rapper target form about 30 feet away.
Starting with my Chronograph velocity results, the KWC CQBP M45 A1 CO2 Airsoft Pistol is really powerful! It shot right up to and just over 500 fps using a brand new CO2 with .20 gram Plastic Airsoft BB's. The temperature was decent right around the mid 20's Celsius which is not too hot or too cold.The actual 5 shot average was 497 fps with the fastest shot hitting 503 fps and the slowest hitting 492 fps so all pretty close in velocity.
Next I placed 10 rounds down range at my paper target using a rested seated shooting position (Sand bag up front and seated on chair in the back). I did find the KWC CQBP M45 A1 CO2 Airsoft Pistol shot a bit high but windage was well centered. My 10 shot grouping produced about 1.5 inch fairly tight group with one outlier that came out a bit.
Overall the KWC CQBP M45 A1 CO2 Airsoft Pistol is a pretty well rounded Airsoft 1911, it's mostly metal with good weight, has lots of power, maybe even too much for anything close range, produced some decent accuracy and it isn't going to set you back too much at the end of the day. Just be aware that because it is a none blowback pistol it does only shoot in double action which is not typical of most 1911 pistols.
