KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol Field Test Review

No Comments

This review was plagued with nothing but recording issues during the target accuracy portion of the review. I had to record it 6 separate times for reasons like: Two battery issues, one wrong setting in my camera, a memory card issue (wasn’t reading) and in one test I had a piece of cardboard covering a camera lens!!! Anyway I did get it done in the end but it was very frustrating!

So how did the KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol perform for me during this Field Test Shooting Video? I would have to say a bit hot and cold. In terms of velocity, the KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol was bang on averaging right around 325 fps which was right in line with KWC’s 328 fps claim. And the temperature was not super hot inside the Sea Can Indoor Airgun Shooting Range. About 15 degrees Celsius or around 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

Moving on to the target portion of this Field Test Review I did manage to get a 4 inch 10 round grouping during my first test (which had recording issues) but for the shooting test that made it to this video my grouping spread out a fair amount closer to 6-8 inches. I did play around with the internal hop-up because the KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol likes to shoot low and to the right, so I thought that if I adjusted the hop-up up, I would be able to get shots a little higher on target but this adjustment only seemed to make the gun shoot a little bit less accurately for me? As always I was shooting using me rested seated position from 30 feet down range.

I can say that the KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol shoot really nicely with a snappy heavy blowback action and the trigger is nice and short and light. The KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol just feel really good in the hand to shoot, nice balance and weight to it .It feels like quality! If yo want more specifications and some cloerup video of the KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol in detail then watch my Table Top Review for the KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol.

KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol Table Top Review

No Comments

Type: Blowback BB Pistol.
Manufacturer: Made and Distributed by KWC.
Model: K17.
Materials: Metal & Polymer.
Weight: 1.68 pounds (760 grams).
Barrel: 4.3 inches metal non-rifled.
Propulsion: 1 x Co2.
Action: Semi auto blowback, single action only trigger.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm steel BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 17 round drop out full size metal magazine.
FPS: Claimed 329.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is short with only a little bit of take up, the release is light and crips. The blowback action resets the internal Hammer / Striker with each shot for that true single action trigger and it’s also nice that the trigger does have a working trigger safety.

Accuracy: At this point I have not shot the KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol so I can only quote what KWC is saying in terms of FPS which is around 330. For a full blowback action steel BB pistol like many other KWC Blowback Air Pistols this is about what you are going to expect. It may sound low but to be honest 300+ is fast enough at 30 feet to only notice a slight delay from the time you press the trigger till the steel BB hits the target and you can expect to put holes in pop cans all day long. In terms of accuracy I should be able to get at least a 2 inch 10 shot grouping from 30 feet down range if the KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is on point for me.

Build Quality: The KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol feels really good, I’m going to say it’s probably one of the nicest KWC CO2 blowback pistols I have had in my hands to date. The finish is really nice, the polymer frame is flawless and fit is really good with nice tight tolerances throughout.

Realism: The KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol being a full blowback Airguns is supper realistic in terms of looking like and functioning like a real steel gun. All the parts function as you would expect them to including the ability to filed strip the KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol which gives you easy access to the hop-up. In terms of the KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol being a replica it does look similar to Glock with some differences like the trigger guard, slide cut-outs, extended beaver tail and straighter pistol grip.
Available From: The Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • Good weight with very solid feel to it.

  • Full blowback action will produce good recoil effect.

  • Full size drop out metal magazine.

  • Short and light single action only trigger.

  • No ugly markings or warnings.

  • Has some bling with the gold barrel and vented slide.

  • Field strips like the real steel version.

  • White dot sights front and back.

  • Adjustable hop-up to adjust for elevation as needed.

  • Working trigger safety along with serial number safety.

Cons:

  • Full blowback action will produce lower fps and use up more CO2.

  • Not sure I like the Gold barrel?:

Comments:

I really like the KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol, it may even be one of my favorite CO2 Blowback BB Pistols from KWC to date. That will be somewhat determined by how it shoots of course. The only thing I’m not a huge fan on is the Gold barrel but that’s a personal preference thing. You amy really like the Gold Bling! I could easily polish the barrel to more of a stainless finish if I wanted to and maybe I will? All in all if you’re looking for that Modern Pistol design than the KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is going to fit the bill. And by the way if you’re more into Airsoft then you can get the Airsoft version of the KWC K17 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol in our Canada Online Store!

Glock BB and Airsoft Pistol Preview

No Comments

In this YouTube Preview Video I show off three new Glock and Glock-like Air Pistols. Two of them are from Umarex and are Glock Licensed, one being a GGB Airsoft Pistol and the other is a CO2 Blowback BB Pistol. I also show an unlicensed Glock-like CO2 Blowback BB Pistol from KWC that kind of looks like a glock but has several key differences that do make it deviate a fair amount from that of a true Glock pistol.

Starting with the KWC 17. At first glance you may think it looks a lot like a Glock but on closer inspection it has the following differences: Notched out trigger guard, extended thumb guard or beaver tail, straight pistol grip with no finger indents, cut out on slide, slide serration on front. The KWC 17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is a full blowback Airgun with a full size drop out metal magazine that holds the CO2 and 17 rods of 4.5mm steel BB’s. You can expect to get around 330 fps for it.

Another Blowback CO2 BB Glock is the Umarex Glock 17 Gen 3 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol which is fully Glock licensed and also features a full size drop out metal magazine that hold 18 4.5mm steel BB’s. The Glock 17 Gen 3 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is a partial blowback Airgun so you can expect a little bit higher velocity of around 365 fps and additional shots per CO2.

Lastly I show you the Umarex Glock 17 Gen 4 GBB Airsoft Pistol, another fully Glock Licensed airgun with full blowback operation and a full size drop out metal magazine that holds 20 6mm plastic Airsfot BB’s and the either Green Gas or Propane Gas. Velocity will be around 300 fps on this one.

Pickup one of these Glock and Glock-like Airguns form either our Canada or US online Replica Airgun stores!

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…

KWC CQBP M45 A1 CO2 Airsoft Pistol Field Test Review

No Comments

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.

KWC M40 Extended Barrel CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol Field Test Review

No Comments

In this Field Test Shooting Review I put the KWC M40 Extended Barrel CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol through my typical Sea Can shooting tests to see what the real world velocity and accuracy are. I made sure i had a brand new 12 gram CO2 in the gun and I used .20 gram plastic Airsoft BB's for the entire test. The temperature was around 17 degrees Celsius which is not too hot or too cold.

Starting with my Chronograph Feet Per Second testing I placed 5 shots with my KWC M40 Extended Barrel CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol through my Chrony Chronograph and averaged a nice 397 fps, the fastest shot was 408 fps and the slowest was 387 fps.

Moving on to the accuracy portion this indoor Sea Can Field Test I setup a clean paper target 30 feet down range and placed 10 shots into it using a rested and seated shooting position. The grouping was a bit all over the place but the bulk of the roods did hit pretty close to the center of the target in about a 3-4 inch grouping. 2 of the shots did go a bit high on me. I feel that perhaps because of the higher velocity that heavier Airsoft BB's may perform better in the KWC M40 Extended Barrel CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol.

All in all the KWC M40 Extended Barrel CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is a nice shooter with heavy blowback and a light Single Action Only Trigger. The high velocity woful make it a great out doors Airsoft Sidearm.

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

No Comments

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 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!

Cybergun KWC Colt 1911 Rail Gun M45A1 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol Table Top Review

No Comments

Type: Blowback Airsoft Pistol.
Manufacturer: KWC - Distributed by Cybergun.
Model: Colt 1911 M45A1.
Materials: Almost all metal.
Weight: 2 pounds (907 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: 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!
