KWC Mini UZI Most Commonly Asked Questions

No Comments

There has been some confusion when it comes to the KWC made Mini UZI regarding semi and full auto abilities and also when it comes to build materials. But before we get into that if you have one of these Mini UZI Blowback BB or Airsoft guns then most likely yours is made by KWC even if it was distributed through RWS, Umarex, Gletcher, Cybergun or some other company. When it comes to the build materials used they are all made by KWC so they are all built the same with plastic and metal in the same places.

Let’s first talk about why some of these Mini UZI’s only come in semi auto with the Full auto selection not available out of the box. This is most likely because in some countries a full auto BB and/or Airsoft gun can be illegal so to play it safe many airguns that are originally made to shoot in both semi and full auto are modified to only shoot full auto. This is the case with most of the companies that redistribute the KWC Mini UZI under their own brand name. That said if you buy the KWC Mini UZI in either 4.5.mm Steel BB or 6mm Plastic Airsoft from our Replica Airguns Canada or US Online Stores, you will be getting a full auto ready out of the box airgun!

If your MINI UZI Airgun is not full auto ready then checkout my Full Auto Mod Video but make sure before you do this modification it is legal in your country to do so or you could be looking at jail time :(

When it comes to build materials the KWC Mini UZI is often described on websites as being full metal which is close but not entirely true. It is accepted that most full metal airguns will have plastic grips but the KWC Mini UZI also has a plastic shroud around the main receiver that is am all in one piece that makes o=up the front and back sights. This might lead you to think that the gun is mainly plastic which is far from the case since all other parts like the receiver block, bolt, top plate, barrel, rear stock, trigger and magazine are metal. This give the KWC Mini UZI its sold 4.8 pound weight. The heavy metal internal bolt really makes this blowback airgun rock when you shoot it simulating very close recoil action to a 22LR. The KWC Mini UZI for sure has the most blowback recoil out there.

If you are looking for the most bad ass and action packed full auto BB or Airsoft Gun then I would highly suggest you consider getting one of these KWC Mini UZI’s. Just be sure to have lots of CO2 and BB’s on hand because you will go through both like crazy…

Umarex Strike Point - KWC M40 - Cybergun Kalashnikov AK47 Preview Video

No Comments

Some more Airguns to show everyone! Today I have three very different styles for you... In this Preview video I show off a Multi-pump Pellet Target Pistol, a CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol and an AEG AK47 Kalashnikov with all the bells and whistles!

First off is the Strike Point Multi-pump .22 Caliber Target Pellet Pistol from Umarex. It's kind of like the Crosman 1322 Pistol but with more plastic parts on the outside so it's a little bit more bulky than the Crosman. Other than that both Multi-pump Target Air Pistols share similar bolt actions, cross bolt safeties and adjustable rear sights. With 10 pumps you shoudl get around 465 fps form a standard .22 caliber lead pellet so the Umarex Strike Point Multi-pump .22 Caliber Target Pellet Pistol should even be OK for small pest control as long as it proves to be accurate.

I previously reviewed the KWC M40 in it's standard barrel length, the KWC M&P 40 Extended Barrel Airsoft Pistol is pretty much the same Airsoft pistol but with an extended slide and barrel along with higher sights and a vented slide. I also like the stainless steel barrel which give the KWC M&P 40 Extended Barrel Airsoft Pistol a nice tow tone look.

Lastly I take a look at a full featured AEG Kalashnikov Tactical AK47 Airsoft Rifle that comes with everything you are going to need including the battery, charger, two 550 round magazines and an included fore-grip. The AK47 Kalashnikov Tactical 60Th Ann. Airsoft Rifle feels really good in the hands with its near 7 pounds of weight. I look forward to giving this AEG Airsoft rifle a test run for sure!

Cybergun Colt 1911 Rail Gun Series CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol Shooting Review

1 Comment

It seems like I am forever reviewing some version of the KWC CO2 Blowback 1911 either in Airsoft or Steel BB or distributed by Cybergun or Gletcher or Umarex or pretty much every company out there has their own rebrand of it. At the end of the day they are all made in the KWC factory and are all interchangeable, you can even swap out the Airsoft parts with the steel BB part if you want to...

So here we have the Cybergun Colt 1911 Rail Gun Series in Airsoft which I believe comes in 4 different finishes: Stainless, All Black, Two-Tone and Dark Earth. They are all Tactical 1911's with a rail on them. They just come in different finishes.

So how did we do in our See Can indoor Airgun Shooting test? As expected the Cybergun Colt 1911 Rail Gun Series CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol performed well. I placed 5 shots through my Chrony Chronograph using a brand new CO2 with .20 gram Airsoft BB's and averaged 373 fps which is about perfect for a full blowback CO2 Airsoft Pistol. If you're wondering the temperature was moderate at 16 Celsius or 61 Fahrenheit.

Next I placed 10 rounds downrange into my paper target 30 feet away using a rested position) Sand bag up front and sitting in the rear). My Cybergun Colt 1911 Rail Gun Series CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol was shooting a bit on the high side but the adjustable Bax Hop-up should allow for us to bring it down accordingly, that said my 10 shot grouping was just under 2 inches at 30 feet.

Even though I find myself reviewing or testing the various versions of the KWC 1911's. I don't really have a problem with it. They have been one of the most popular Blowback Airguns if not thee most popular and for a reason. They look and feel great, are reasonably priced, they perform well and have gotten more and more reliable over the years. All you ahed to do is pick which one of the Cybergun Colt 1911 Rail Gun Series CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistols you want?

Cybergun Sig Sauer SP2022 Sportline CO2 Airsoft Pistol Shooting Review

1 Comment

First off let's get the fact that the Cybergun Sig Sauer SP2022 Sportline CO2 Airsoft Pistol is not going to win any awards for true to scale weight and materials used in its production. This Airsoft pistol is virtually all plastic with the exception of some internal metal parts. It weighs next to nothing but that could actually be a good thing if you don't want a heavy sidearm dragging you down on the field. Once you are all geared up with your primary weapon and all it's extra magazines and what not. And of course you are probably covered head to toe in some sort of tactical uniform, why drag yourself down even more with a heavy sidearm and all it's heavy backup magazines? Just a thought!

What's really important is how does the Cybergun Sig Sauer SP2022 Sportline CO2 Airsoft Pistol actually perform? Well really good for an inexpensive pistol and since there is no blowback operation you are going to get a lot more shots per CO2 and higher fps.

In terms of power, being non-blowback did seem to help out the Cybergun Sig Sauer SP2022 Sportline CO2 Airsoft Pistol. I got an average of 390 fps shooting 6 shots through my Chrony Chronograph. I was using .20 gram plastic Airsoft BB's with a brand new CO2 cartridge. The temperature was around 16-17 degrees Celsius which is around 62 degree Fahrenheit.

Next up I placed 10 rounds into my paper target setup 30 feet down range. From my seated and rested position I was able to get about a 2 inch grouping and all the shots where fairly well centered, just a tad to the left. This is good considering most lower priced Airsoft pistols are not going to have adjustable sights which is the same with the Cybergun Sig Sauer SP2022 Sportline CO2 Airsoft Pistol.

Being that the Cybergun Cybergun Sig Sauer SP2022 Sportline CO2 Airsoft Pistol is non-blowback, it only shoots in double action only but I found the trigger to be really good. It's nice and light, not too long and even good for rapid fire shooting! You just need to learn the break point if you want to slow it down and go for accuracy. Overall I think the Cybergun Sig Sauer SP2022 Sportline CO2 Airsoft Pistol is a nice under the radar kind of Airsoft pistol and if you are looking for a light weight inexpensive backup gun then the Cybergun Sig Sauer SP2022 Sportline CO2 Airsoft Pistol would be a good option.

Cybergun Stainless Sig Sauer X-five CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol Field Test Review

2 Comments

I have kind of already reviews this Cybergun Sig Sauer X-Five Blowback Airsoft pistol before but in the all black version with the non-adjustable sights. I'm kind of glad I did a revisit of this Stainless steel wood grip version since I actually got fairly different results even though both Airsoft Pistols are mechanically the same.

Looking back on at my 2016 Field Test Sooting video for the Cybergun Sig Sauer X-five CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol I averaged around 312 fps and placed 10 rounds into my paper target all within about an inch of each other. I just wanted to put that out there as a reference but watch the video and see for yourself...

Skip ahead to the present and my retest of the Cybergun Sig Sauer X-five CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol (Stainless version) was still good but power was much better and accuracy went down a  bit. Power for the Stainless Cybergun Sig Sauer X-five CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol went up 100 fps with an average of 415 shooting 5 rounds of 20 gram plastic Airsoft BB's though my Chrony Chronograph. That is a big difference for sure!

Yes accuracy went down a bit but with the Stainless Cybergun Sig Sauer X-five CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol but I still grouped my 10 shots within about 2 inches using my standard 30 foot back, rested shooting position. There will always be some human factor when shooting this way since the pistol is not locked into place and even though I am using a reseted seated position there is some movement going on.

Overall my retest showed that the Stainless Cybergun Sig Sauer X-five CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is well worth taking a look at. Personally I really like this Stainless wood grip version not only for its looks but for the simple fact it has a fully adjustable target sight on the back. Add heavy blowback operation and a very smooth single and double action trigger and this all makes for a great Airsoft Pistol.

Cybergun Airsoft 1911 Rail Gun - Taurus PT92 - Sig X-five - SP 2022 Preview

No Comments

I'm back from my family Vacation in sunny Oceanside California and ready to start making more review videos for everyone! To kick things off I show you 6 Cybergun Airsoft pistols. All of these bad boys are actually made by KWC, Cybergun licenses the Colt, Taurus and Sig Sauer names and redistributes them out of the US hence the orange tips on most of the barrels.

All these Cybergun Airsoft Pistols shoot 6mm Plastic Airsoft BB's and use 12 gram CO2 cartridges in their full size drop out magazines.

Cybergun Taurus PT24/7 G2 Airsoft Pistol Field Test Review

No Comments

If you haven't already, make sure to watch my Table top Video Review for the Cybergun Taurus PT24/7 G2 Airsoft Pistol to see it up close and get all the details and specifications on this fine Airsoft pistol.

In this Field Test Shooting Video I put the Cybergun Taurus PT24/7 G2 Airsoft Pistol through its paces to see what the fps velocity is and what kind of accuracy grouping we can get. Starting with power, I shot 5 rounds of .20 grain plastic Airsoft BB's through my Chrony Chronograph and average 410 fps, that's pretty fast for a blowback Airsoft pistol!

Next up was the accuracy portion of this shooting review and as I alway do here in my indoor Sea Can Shooting Range, I setup a paper target 30 feet away and shot from a seated stabilized position. I did find the Cybergun Taurus PT24/7 G2 Airsoft Pistol shot a bit high for me right out of the box without any hop-up adjustments. In terms of accuracy the Cybergun Taurus PT24/7 G2 Airsoft Pistol did not perform as well as I would have liked it to, perhaps a different ammo choice and or playing around with the hop-up may have helped but either way I got around a 7 inch 10 shot grouping. This is perfectly fine for close quarter combat but if you plan on hitting anything far away, the Airsoft BB is fast enough to get there but sniper accuracy is not going to happen.

Overall the Cybergun Taurus PT24/7 G2 Airsoft Pistol feels great to shoot, it has a really nice trigger and solid blowback action. Perhaps with a little bit of playing around with this quality Airsoft pistol I could get it to tighten up its grouping a little bit?

Cybergun Taurus PT24/7 G2 Airsoft Pistol Table Top Review

1 Comment

Type: Blowback Airsoft Pistol.
Manufacturer: Distributed by Cybergun.
Model: Taurus PT24/7 G2.
Materials: Metal & Polymer.
Weight: 1.86 pounds (844 grams).
Barrel: Metal non-rifled.
Propulsion: CO2 x 1.
Action: Semi auto blowback, single action only.
Ammunition Type: 6mm plastic Airsoft BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 19 round double stack full size metal magazine.
FPS: Claimed 438 using .20 gram BB's.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Cybergun Taurus PT24/7 G2 Airsoft Pistol is Single Action Only and feels really good, it was much lighter than I expected and has a medium length take up, the reset positions the trigger fairly far back ready for quick follow-up shots. You'll also find a working trigger safety on this Airsoft Pistol which is a nice touch and ads to the realism.

Accuracy: At this point I have not shot the Cybergun Taurus PT24/7 G2 Airsoft Pistol, I imagine it should perform well considering it has an adjustable spin-up or hop-up along with a rear site that can be adjusted for windage. According to the manufacturers claimed fps, we should get around 438 fps using .20 gram Plastic Airsoft BB's. I will be a bit surprise if this Cybergun Taurus PT24/7 G2 Airsoft Pistol actually hits this rather high velocity but anything over 400 will be impressive.

Build Quality: Overall the Cybergun Taurus PT24/7 G2 Airsoft Pistol looks and feels really good. It has a nice weight to it but is not overly heavy. Everything feels tight and the finish looks great. the only thing I noticed that stood out a little bit was some flex in the forward part of the frame near the accessory rail. It seems to seperate just a little bit leaving a very slight gap and there is some flex here. I would not worry too much about this as it is not a structural consideration.

Realism: The Cybergun Taurus PT24/7 G2 Airsoft Pistol is a real ringer for the lead bullet firing version in almost every way and even has licensed trademarks on it through Cybergun but they are not exactly where you would find them on the real steel version, at least on the slide portion. Everything works like you would expect including full ambidextrous slide catch, safety, and magazine release. You can also easily field strip the Cybergun Taurus PT24/7 G2 Airsoft Pistol just like the real steel version.
Available From: The Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • Claimed to have a very high fps over 400 using .20 gram Airsoft BB’s.
  • Full length blowback action.
  • Supper accurate licensed Taurus PT24/7 G2 replica.
  • Excellent SAO trigger pull, very smooth and light.
  • Working trigger safety.
  • Double stack full size drop out metal magazine holds the CO2 and 19 BB’s.
  • Comes with additional back-straps in small medium and large sizes.
  • Adjustable rear sight for windage.
  • Fully ambidextrous controls.
  • Easily field strippable.
  • Red tip is easy to remove using boiling water to melt the glue.
  • Adjustable Bax hop-up.

Cons:

  • Comes with red tip installed and glued on.
  • Seems to have a little bit of frame flex in the rail area with a slight gap.
  • Safety selector is plastic.

Comments:

The most noticeable feature of the Cybergun Taurus PT24/7 G2 Airsoft Pistol is the claimed high FPS of 438 using .20 gram airsoft BB's. This seems kind of high for a full blowback Airsoft pistol but we will find out when I do my Filed Test Shooting Video Review for the Cybergun Taurus PT24/7 G2 Airsoft Pistol. Velocity aside the Cybergun Taurus PT24/7 G2 Airsoft Pistol is a very stylish gun, I have always been a Sig Sauer fan and it remind me a lot of the Sig brand but with a some more rounded finishing going on. The Cybergun Taurus PT24/7 G2 Airsoft Pistol has a lot going for it: Taurus Licensing, metal and polymer parts where you would expect them, fully ambidextrous working controls, adjustable rear sight for windage, adjustable hop-up, a working trigger safety, some power behind it and a full size double stack all metal magazine. It's also rather reasonably priced in our Replica Airguns Canada and US Online Store.

Cybergun Famas AEG Airsoft Rifle Field Test Shooting Review

No Comments

In this yet another AEG Airsoft Field Test Shooting Video Review I mainly focus on the Cybergun Famas AEG Bullpup Airsoft Rifle and put it through my typical velocity and accuracy tests I conduct in the Replica Airguns Indoor Sea Can Shooting Range. I also show some other similar Bullpup styled AEG Airsoft Rifles in comparison that I plan on also reviewing very soon, the IWI Tavor 21 Elite Force and two AEG Bullpups from ASG, the Steyr Aug A2 and Steyr Aug A3 Proline Series.. 

So how did the Cybergun Famas AEG Bullpup Airsoft Rifle perform? I placed 5 rounds through my Chrony Chronograph using .20 gram plastic Airsoft BB's and I got right around a 360 fps average which is should be just about right for most indoor or outdoor shooting environments. Velocity consistency was also good.

Moving on to the accuracy portion of my indoor sea can field test, I place my paper target 30 feet down range and put 10 rounds into the target shooting from a rested seated position with a sandbag up front for stability. The Cybergun Famas AEG Bullpup Airsoft Rifle shot a nice 1.5 to 2 inch grouping just a little high but well centered. The front and back sigh are both adjustable making windage and elevation corrections very easy to do. You could also play around with the hop-up to adjust elevation at various ranges.

In full auto mode the Cybergun Famas AEG Bullpup Airsoft Rifle performed really well, I pretty much empty the magazine and the grouping only spread out to about 3 inches making a clean 3 inch hole in my paper target. There is something very gratifying about unloading an entree magazine in full auto and checking out the damage it caused :)

All in all the Cybergun Famas AEG Bullpup Airsoft Rifle is a great performer at a pretty low price tag of around $200 Canadian at the time of this review. If you want a slightly higher quality version than also checkout the Cybergun Famas F1 EVO Version which is only about $90 more and but offers better build material and and internals improvements.

You can also buy the Cybergun Famas AEG Airsoft Rifle in our US Replica Airguns Store!

Cybergun SA92 and SA1911 Tracitcal Stainless CO2 Blowback BB Pistol Shooting Video

No Comments

I had a chance to take out my Swiss Arms SA 92 Stainless Version and Swiss Arms SA 1911 Tactical Rail System CO2 Blowback BB Pistols and see how they performed in the Sea Can Airgun Shooting range and they did pretty good, I have treated very similar KWC version of these guns in previous videos and for the most part the Swiss Arms Stainless Versions are just a little prettier cosmetically. I didn't test out the Swiss Arms SA 1911 Seventies Stainless Pistol since I expect it would have performed the same as the other 1911 in this Field Test Shooting Video.

So how did they do? First off I fired five rounds through my now almost perfectly working Chrony Chronograph and the SA 92 ended up shotgun a little faster with an average of right around 320 fps while the Swiss Arms SA 1911 Tactical shot an average of 302 fps. I was using  brand new Sig Sauer CO2 and RWS Match Grade Precision Steel 4.5mm BB's for the entire review.

Moving on to the accuracy, I setup in my rested position which is about 30 feet back for the paper target. I was sitting and using a sand bag to rest the pistols on for stability. This gives me a very stable shooting position but there is still a little human factor involved since the guns are not locked in place. Both CO2 Blowback BB Pistols shot about a 2 inch 10 round grouping but the Swiss Arms SA 1911 had better shot placement pretty much hitting exactly where I aimed it, the Swiss Arms SA 92 Stainless on the other hand wanted to shot rather low, I had to place my aim at the top of the rings to get the SA 92 to hit near the bullseye. It did shoot really well left to right, unfortunately the Swiss Arms SA 92 Stainless does not seem to have a hop-up adjustment so you may have to adjust your aim point higher than normal with this one.

Both guns had great single action triggers with heavy blowback operation, I did find the Swiss Arms SA 1911 Stainless Tactical had a bit of a sticky slide when I first shot it but after a few shots it smoothed out. If you're looking for a KWA / Cybergun 1911 or Taurus PT 92 Blowback Airgun and want it ti have a little more curb appeal then make sure to checkout the Swiss Arms Stainless series of CO2 Blowback BB Pistols.

Cybergun Swiss Arms SA 1911 and SA 92 Stainless CO2 Blowback BB Pistol Update Video

No Comments

I know this video is going to excite many of you if you already like the basic KWC 1911 and PT92, also known as the Tanfoglio Witness, GSG 92 and many other almost exactly the same guns from Swiss Arms, Gletcher, Cybergun and even Umarex and Crosman.

There are tons of these KWC CO2 Blowback BB Pistols and Airsoft Pistols on the market in various versions with all kinds of different licensing on them and I have seen lots of custom modification photos from my viewers showing me how thy have striped and polished their KWC blowback Air Pistols and even added real wood grips.

That's why I think it's super cool that now you can get your already blinged out and polished Cybergun/KWC 1911 or PT92 and realy for not a lot more money at the end of the day! The real problems is availability since these stainless versions are in high demand.

So what are we looking at in this video? I have two Cybergun/KWC 1911's one is a basic 1911 A1 with a parkerized and stainless frame and slide, you also have a real wood look grip (Looks like wood but is not actually wood...) The basic Swiss Arms 1911 has been called the SA 1911 Seventies Stainless Pistol while the more tactical Swiss Arms SA 1911 is rightfully called the SA 1911 Tactical Rail System since it has a lot more tactical features like a rail, ambidextrous safety, white dot sights, and tactical trigger and hammer.

The Swiss Arms SA 92 Stainless which is essentially very similar to the GSG 92 or KWC PT92  again offers a parkerized and stainless frame and slide with the simulated wood grips.

Make sure to watch my update video for these three very attractive Swiss Arms CO2 Blowback BB Pistols from Cybergun/KWC and if you're interested in purchasing one you like then see if we have them in stock in our Canada Replica Airguns Store.

Cybergun KWC Colt 1911 Rail Gun M45 A1 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol Shooting Review

No Comments

Another Airgun Shipping Container (Sea Can) Shooting video and for this indoor filed test I put the KWC - Cybergun M45A1 1911 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol through its paces.

What I am super happy about is that my Chrony Chronograph seems to be working really well as I tested a pellet, steel BB and Airsoft pistol out today and every single round through my Chrony got a reading :)

Now back to the Field Test Shooting Review at hand... I started off by placing 5 shots through my Chrony Chronograph using a brand new CO2 with .20 gram Airsoft BB's and got a really consistent reading for all 5 shots with an average of 357. The lowest shot was 353 and the fastest shot was 364 so all shots where really close in velocity. The container temperature was a near perfect shooting temperature of 23 degrees Celsius which was ideal for optimal CO2 velocity testing.

During my accuracy portion of this Field Shooting Test. I used my new seated in the back and sand bag rested up front shooting position which is about 30 feet back from my paper target. I did notice during my Chrony testing that the Cybergun KWC Colt 1911 Rail Gun M45 A1 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol liked to shoot a bit high, perhaps the hop-up needs a bit of twerking? So for my accuracy testing I shot at the bottom ring of the target, this helped me get more shots on the paper for sure but the Airsoft BB's still moved around a bit vertically. I was able to get about a 4-5 inch 10 shot grouping which is totally acceptable for a close range Airsoft sidearm and in an Airsoft battle I would think even shooting at about 50 feet or so I could easily hit a persons mid section consistently.

The Cybergun KWC Colt 1911 Rail Gun M45 A1 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol has a ton of blowback kick to it and a super nice single action trigger like all the KWC 1911's The modern Tactical coloration and trimmings makes this pistol a great choice as a present day side arm. It's real looker for sure with performance to match!

Ammunition Type: 6mm plastic Airsoft BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 17 round full size metal magazine.
FPS: 340+ using .20 gram BB's.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Cybergun KWC Colt 1911 M45A1 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is what you would expect from a true single action 1911 styled pistol and typical to all the other KWC 1911's on the market. It has a short take up and then a nice light and crisp release. The working grip safety is a nice touch requiring your palm to be pressed against it for the trigger and hammer to operate..

Accuracy: At this point I have not shot the Cybergun KWC Colt 1911 M45A1 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol, I imagine it should perform well considering it has adjustable spin-up or hop-up. According to the manufacturers claimed fps, we should get somewhere in the mid to high 300 fps range using .20 gram Plastic Airsoft BB's. I'll add this one to the list of airguns I need to field test review!

Build Quality: Most KWC built full blowback airguns are built pretty well with an almost all metal build and good overall fit but sometimes the finish can wear off a bit especially in the high points. The Cybergun KWC Colt 1911 M45A1 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol seems to have a bit heavier finish on it. I looks really good and seems to be holding up well.

Realism: The Cybergun KWC Colt 1911 M45A1 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is a close replica of the real steel Colt 1911 M45A1 in almost every way other than the fact that it shoot s6mm airsoft BB's rather than 45 auto bullets :) The only real notable cosmetic difference I saw was the rail having less notches in it. Other than that it is bang on including the layered grips.
Available From: The Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • All metal construction - Good weight and solid feeling gun.

  • Nice heavy blowback action.

  • Very Accurate 1911 M45A1 styled replica.

  • True 1911 Single action trigger, excellent pull, very smooth and light.

  • Accurate trigger design and working grip safety.

  • Lots of tactical upgrades on this version (Tac style trigger and hammer, textured grips, ambidextrous safety, white dot sights, Rail for accessories)

  • Love the desert tan color and layered grips.

Cons:

  • Sacrifice fps and shots per CO2 because of the heavy blowback but worth it.
  • Finish on the Cybergun and KWC guns can were off on the high points a bit but some people like the look.
  • Comes with the orange tip (I took mine off).

Comments:

I have always been a big fan of the KWC line of full blowback airguns and this one is no exception.  It's kind of interesting that KWC does not seem to make there own blinded out versions of these guns and that a company like Cybergun is distributing them? They do look really great and this entire line with all the variations and new models will for sure keep selling these airguns. And they don't just come in Airsoft versions, I will also be taking a look at some similar 4.5mm Steel BB KWC made airguns shortly!

How to Get Rid of That Ugly White Writing on Your Airgun

No Comments

I get asked on a daily bases form many of my YouTube Viewers about how and if there is a way to get rid of the White lettering on Airguns, Typically people are wanting to remove the intrusive Warning instructions from Airguns like the Cybergun Tanfoglio Witness 1911, the Cybergun/Swiss Arms GSG 92/P92 and many other CO2 Replica Airguns that have lettering or branding that you may want to get rid of.

In this Instructional Tutorial Video I show you how can at least tone down the white lettering and even completely remove it on some Airguns without damaging the Airguns finish underneath the white lettering. You will have to use some patience and perhaps repeat this method a few times but the end result is worth the effort.

The magical product I use to remove the white lettering on many popular Airguns is a product from Birchwood Casey called the Presto Gun Blue Pen. This product is actually designed to touch up real steel gun in areas where the blueing has worn off, lucky for us the Birchwood Casey Presto Gun Blue Pen also works well to remove the ugly white lettering from Airguns.

My Favorite BB Pellet Airsoft and Blank Replica Guns

No Comments

It has been a while since I picked out some of my favorite guns, after all my favorite gun picks change on a daily basis since there are so many awesome guns out there to pick from.

This YouTube video is a little different since I pick out my favorites from a bunch of mostly replica gun categories including Steel BB, Pellet, Airsoft, Revolvers and Blank Pistols.

You may notice most of my picks happen to be blowback guns but to me airguns are all about being as realistic as possible and having blowback operation to me help to simulate the realism that much more. The exception in this video is in the pellet gun category since I decided on a pellet gun that was more about function and purpose over being any type of real replica.

Hopefully you take the time to watch my entire YouTube video since I also bring out some close runner ups but here is a list of my top picks on this day, tomorrow it could be a completely different list of guns ;)

KJWorks KP-11 - Cybergun FNX -45 Tactical Airsoft Pistol Preview

No Comments

Another Airsoft Pistol Preview Video to share with everyone. First up we have a nice lighter weight CO2 powered 1911 from KJWorks called the KP-11 The lower receiver is polymer which helps to keep this gun a little bit lighter all around but it still has good weight to it coming in at a little over 2 pounds, the grips are larger than some 1911's since the KP-11 has a double stack style full size drop out metal magazine. You will also find some nice Tactical upgrade like adjustable white dot sights, a lower rail for accessories and milled trigger and hammer.

I also show off an interesting and not all that common pistol from Cybergun, the FNX -45 Tactical in Gas Blowback. For import into Canada it ships with a longer barrel  which stick out of the front of the gun but it also comes with a shorter barrel you can install after your receive it. The Longer barrel gives the Cybergun FNX -45 Tactical Airsoft Pistol the extra velocity to allow it to be Canada import ready. The FNX -45 Tactical is a really detailed and well built Airsoft Pistol. By the way the FNX -45 Tactical is also availabl in Dark Earth color.

Here are some of the specifications for the KJWorks KP-11 and Cybergun FNX -45 Tactical Airsoft Pistols:

KJWorks KP-11 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol :

  • Ammo Type: 6mm Airsoft BB's.
  • Ammo Capacity: 28 Rounds.

Cybergun KWC Colt M1911 A1 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol Field Test Review

No Comments

Another Airsoft  Field Test Shooting Review for you guys where I test out the Cybergun distributed KWC made CO2 powered Blowback 6mm Plastic BB shooting Colt M1911 A1 Pistol. I have already done some table top Reviews for a few other versions of this same KWC made pistol... I have already made a lot of videos for this super popular KWC 1911 pistol, it comes in 4.5mm Steel BB and Airsoft version distributed by companies like Cybergun, Umarex and Gletcher to name a few. Each of these companies brands them under their own name and license and in some cases the cosmetics are a little different on each version.

Getting to the meat of this review and back to the Field Test shooting portion. I performed my standard five round Chronograph velocity fps test using .20 gram plastic Airsoft BB's with a brand new 12 gram CO2. The fastest Airsoft BB achieved by the Cybergun KWC Colt M1911 A1 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol was 386 fps and the slowest came in at 374 fps with a five shot average of 380 fps. I was actually a bit surprised at how hard this Airsoft pistol shot being that the 4.5mm steel BB version shoots closer to the 300 fps range. Still a usable fps for most Airsoft games.

Next up in my Field Test Shooting Review was my accuracy target test, I set up 30 feet back shooting from a semi-rested position (Sand bag up front and standing in the back). This shooting position serves to provide a nice stable shooting platform for overall accuracy and what I can expect from the Cybergun KWC Colt M1911 A1 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol. Of course the results are always dependant on how I'm shoot on the day of my testing, after all I am only human!

I shot my usual 10 rounds through the Cybergun KWC Colt M1911 A1 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol but for some reason this 1911 Airsoft replica liked to shoot on the high side. My first shot curved well above my target and my second shot just clipped the metal portion. For my remaining 8 shots I lowered my aim to the lowest ring to see if I could get some shots on paper and even with this rather deliberate sight adjustment I was still hitting really high on the target, some shots still even off the paper and hitting metal. Either the adjustable BAXS Hop-up was way off or the Airsoft Ammo I was using did not agree with this 1911 pistol. It is kind of hard to say what kind of grouping I can actually get using this pistol as it stands but from shooting similar versions of this pistol I should be able to get at least 2 inch groupings once it is set up right and using ammo that works well with it.

The Cybergun KWC Colt M1911 A1 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol has a great single action trigger with the feel you would expect form a real 1911 45 caliber pistol. The blowback action is strong, you can actually feel it not just in your hand but further back in your arms and even shoulders a little bit. I'm pretty sure with a quick hop-up adjustment or ammo swap, this Cybergun KWC Colt M1911 A1 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol will perform like all the others KWC pistols I have tested before it.

Cybergun KWC Sig Sauer P226 X-Five CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol Field Test Review

No Comments

In yet another Field Test Shooting Review I test out an Cybergun distributed KWC made CO2 powered Blowback 6mm Plastic BB shooting Sig Sauer P226 X-Five Pistol. I have already done some table top Reviews for a few other versions of this same KWC made pistol... The 4.5mm Steel BB shooting version of this same Cybergun distributed pistol and also the KWC unlicensed version in Airsoft and with some slightly different cosmetics.

Getting to the Field Test shooting portion of this review. I performed my standard five round Chronograph velocity fps test using .20 gram plastic Airsoft BB's with a brand new 12 gram CO2. The fastest Airsoft BB achieved by the Cybergun KWC Sig Sauer P226 X-Five CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol was 327 fps and the slowest came in at 298 fps with a five shot average of 312 fps, that might seem low but in terms of a close range Airsoft gun this is ideal. 

Next up in my Field Test Shooting Review was my target test, and like always, I set up 30 feet back shooting from a semi-rested position (Sand bag up front and standing in the back). This shooting position provides a nice and stable shooting platform to get a good idea on the overall accuracy I should be able to expect with the Cybergun KWC Sig Sauer P226 X-Five CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol. Of course the results are a little dependant on how I'm shoot on the day of my testing :)

I shot 10 rounds through my Cybergun KWC Sig Sauer P226 X-Five CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol and they all easily found their mark close together on the paper target, 8 of the 10 shots grouped within a 3/4 inch hole with 2 shots coming out juts a bit extending the grouping to about 2-3 inches. With light Airsoft BB's some shots will stray a little bit but the fact that 8 out of the 10 shots pretty much made one small hole shows that this Blowback Airsoft Pistol is very accurate to say the least.

The Cybergun KWC Sig Sauer P226 X-Five CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol has an awesome single action trigger, if your not ready for it it can almost get away on you but after a couple of shots you will easily figure out the break and release points and be hitting targets down range with ease from this super short and light trigger. The Cybergun KWC Sig Sauer P226 X-Five CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol does also have a double action trigger if you decide to lower the hammer but need to take a quick shot. The Blowback action is one of the heavier blowback actions you will find on an CO2 Blowback airgun and the gun itself is fairly large and a bit on the heavy side but at the same time really well balanced and a joy to shoot.

Can I put real 1911 Grips on my KWC-Cybergun 1911 BB-Airsoft Gun?

No Comments

With the popularity of the KWC - Cybergun 1911 Blowback CO2 Pistols and how super realistic they are in so many ways, it is no surprise that people often ask me if they can replace the original grips with grips made for a real 1911.

The short answer is yes you can! You will have to be prepared to remove just a little bit of material from the backside of both grips near the bottom of the handle where there is an area that has been flared out to accommodate the CO2. Not really a big deal, you can use a Dremel for the quick and easy approach or even some sand paper if you don't mind taking a little more time.

In this YouTube Video I demonstrate using grips that fit a real 1911 and show you just exactly where you will need modify them to fit on the KWC and Cybergun CO2 Blowback 1911 pistol series.
