ASG STI Duty One 1911 Non Blowback CO2 BB Gun Field Test Shooting Review

No Comments

Here is my follow up Shooting Field Test to my ASG STI Duty One Non-blowback Table Top Review. During this Field Test Shooting video review I not only shoot my Non-blowback STI Duty One version but I also compare it to the Blowback ASG STI Duty One to see if fps and accuracy are effected when adding Blowback to the equation? I shoot 5 rounds through my Chronograph with both guns to get an average fps and I also step back 30 feet and setup resting my hands on a sand bag and standing in the back for a fairly secure shooting stance. I did my standard 10 shot grouping for my accuracy test from 30 feet away.

Overall both guns performed similarly and as expected the Blowback did effect the fps but not as much as I expected it to? I was expecting the Non-blowback STI Duty One to be at least 50 fps faster but it was only around 20 or so. I am fairly certain since the fps os so close between the two guns, that you will get more shots form a CO2 out of the Non-blowback ASG STI Duty One since there is no CO2 being used to make the slide recoil back and forth. In the end the Non-blowback STI shot an average fps of 373 while the Blowback version shot an average fps of 356.

When it came to accuracy, both guns performed about the same getting about a 2 inch group from 30 feet back. The Blowback STI did spread the BB's out more from side to side perhaps because of the slide recoil while the Non-blowback ASG STI Duty One seemed to shoot Horizontally tighter.

Personally since both guns shoot almost as high of fps and both STI Duty One's seem to be about the same accuracy wise. Why not just go with the blowback version since you will be shooting in single action most of the time which allows for a faster and lighter trigger pull. The only real downside to the Blowback STI Duty One is perhaps a bit more CO2 usage but you can still expect to get around 100 shots per CO2 which is very good for a CO2 blowback pistol.

ASG STI Duty One 1911 Non Blowback CO2 BB Gun Table Top Review

2 Comments

Type: BB air pistol.

Manufacturer: ASG.

Model:ASG STI Duty One 1911 Non Blowback.

Materials: Metal slide and polymer frame.

Weight: 1.8 pounds.

Barrel: Metal non-rifled.

Propulsion: CO2 x 1.

Action: Semi auto blowback, single action.

Ammunition Type: 4.5mm BB's.

Ammunition Capacity: 20 round magazine.

FPS: 407.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the ASG STI Duty One 1911 Non Blowback is fairly light in both single and double action. Take-up is the same in both modes but when in single action mode most of the trigger pull has little to no resistance until you get to the break point near the end where the hammer is released.

Accuracy: In an Earlier review I shot the Blowback version STI Duty One 1911 air gun at a target from 20 feet away in a free standing position, and it performed well getting a 1.5 to 2 inch grouping right in the center of the target. The rear sight is adjustable for windage which is always nice to have just in case you are shooting a bit to the left or right. For me there was no need to adjust the sights. My Chrony testing with an eight shot averaged result was 373 fps - very decent for a blowback pistol! It will be interesting to see how this Non Blowback version performs since there is more CO2 going to the BB and less gun movement without the Blowback operation.

Build Quality: ASG did a great job designing and making the STI Duty One 1911 Non Blowback BB gun, they didn't really compromise on anything other than going with a polymer frame! With that said all that important parts like the Slide, Slide Catch, Safety, Mag Release, Hammer, Barrel and Magazine are all metal. The fit and finish as with all the ASG air guns is very good!

Realism: The ASG STI Duty One 1911 Non Blowback version is a close replica to the real steel STI 1911, the only real giveaway is the trigger design, as a true 1911 trigger is not your typical lever type. Even with the different type of trigger the STI Duty One is a very good replica complete with STI licensing and trademarks.

Purchased From: The Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • No Blowback action but does have a working slide and slide catch.
  • Adjustable rear sight for windage.
  • Shoots in both single and double action.
  • Good quality control, very well made, fit and finish is good.
  • Should have good power and accuracy like the blowback version, perhaps even a bit better.
  • May have even better CO2 usage than the already good blowback version.
  • Metal drop out magazine.
  • Good STI Replica.
  • Holds really well in the hand.

Cons:

  • Trigger is not true to the real steel 1911.
  • No working grip safety like a real 1911.
  • Polymer frame rather than a metal frame.
  • CO2 can be hard to get out.

Comments:

In terms of comparing the Non Blowback version of the ASG STI Duty One 1911 to the Blowback version without actually shooting it, they are pretty much identical except for the double and single action trigger found on the Non Blowback version. Even the slide seems to work the same. The big difference will be when I shoot the Non Blowback ASG STI Duty One. Will it shoot with a lot more FPS and will the reduced slide movement give it more accuracy? I am assuming yes to both of these question but I guess we will all have to wait and see when I do my official Shooting Field Test Comparison...

ASG STI Duty One vs CZ 75 P-07 vs Bersa BP9cc Head to Head Shootout

No Comments

I was waiting for a magazine for my ASG STI Duty One 1911 to show up so I could finally do this "Head to Head" Field Test Shooting Review Video for the ASG STI Duty One versus the ASG CZ 75 P-07 Duty versus the ASG Bersa BP9cc. All of which are Blowback CO2 4.5mm Steel BB pistols.

This Shooting Field Test went fairly well and all guns performed as expected, I did have one slide lock back on a loaded magazine with my ASG STI Duty One 1911 and one failure to lock back on the last shot with my ASG Bersa BP9cc, but it did eventually lock back.

During the Chronograph 5 shot per pistol test I got fairly similar fps from all three guns with the STI Duty One getting the highest of 372 average fps, the Bersa BP9cc getting runner up with 353 average fps and the CZ 75 P-07 Duty trailing the field just a bit with a 346 average fps.

During the target portion of this Field Test Shooting Review from 30 feet back in a semi rested position, again the pistols shot fairly similarly with all of them getting pretty close to 2-3 inch groupings. I did have a double shot right after my slide lock back on the STI Duty One as I pressed the trigger twice, once when the slide was locked back and again when I released it, this chambered two BB's into the barrel making the gun shoot a bit low for that double shot. With that negative one against the STI Duty One 1911, I did however find it the most pleasing to shoot! It had the best blowback action and the smoothest trigger, plus I just like holding and sighting in 1911's :)

The CZ 75 P-07 had the next hardest blowback with the Bersa BP9cc coming in second in the trigger department. All of these CO2 blowback BB pistols should get somewhere around 100+ shots pre CO2 if you take your time a bit between reloading magazines.

ASG Airsoft Pistol and Rifle Update Video

4 Comments

I just received some of my ASG Airsoft guns in my BC location and wanted to make an update video for you so you can see them up close and perhaps see how they stack up against their Airgun counterparts. Keep in mind many of my ASG guns are only available in the Canada Replica Airguns Store, we do have some ASG Airsoft guns for my US based customers but this time here in Canada I have more to offer my Canadian folks!

The Dan Wesson's, the Steyr M9-A1, STI Duty One 1911, CZ 75 P-07 Duty are all pretty much identical to my 4.5mm Steel BB shooting versions with the exception of not having blowback but the good news is the slides do in fact move on the semi autos! Of course the Dan Wesson is just made to accept 6mm Airsoft BB's rather than 4.5mm steel BB's.

I am also super impressed with the high quality of the LMT Defender M4 Carbines, they are a serious bit of gear and have some very good heft to them, even more so than my full metal King Arms M4A1 I already sell and have done a full review of, not to take anything away from the Kings Arms product as it is very good at its price point.

I also received my first sniper rifle and have played around with it a bit to see what it is capable of. I added a bipod to the front and a 3x9 power scope as the ASG AW .308 comes pretty bare bones but ready for all you can throw at it. I can say it likes heavier Airsoft BB's, as the .20 gram ones I started with seemed to fly off in all directions due to the high velocity, even stepping up to a .25 gram BB tightened my group up significantly at 30 feet. I have heard this rifle really prefers heavy Airsoft BB's so I plan do do my review based on that information.

Enjoy my YouTube Video Update focusing on the new ASG Airsoft lineup.

ASG Shipment Delay - We Will Have Them Soon!!!

2 Comments

We have been waiting a while here in Canada for some of our ASG products to come back in stock. ASG provides us with our Dan Wesson line and the Dan Wesson Revolvers have been a very popular airgun to say the least. We did  manage to get a few of them, mainly to fill some of the earlier back orders but this big order had to come by cargo ship and now it has arrived and has been with Canada customs for about a week so we should be close to having them for you!

The hold up on this shipment is because we have some ASG Airsoft guns in with the regular Airguns which is good news as we will soon be stocking some very nice ASG Airsoft Pistols and Rifles but the new Airsoft guns are the main reason that Canada Customs is taking their time giving their OK on this shipment.

My advice to anyone who has been waiting a long time for their Dan Wesson Revolver (Mostly the 2.5 & 4 inch versions) is to hold on a bit longer because the wait is almost over and we will sell out of these guns quickly so having your backorder in guarantees you will get yours.

Custom Polished Two-tone ASG STI Duty One 1911

5 Comments

One of my viewers sent some photos of his custom sanded and polished two-tone ASG STI Duty One 1911. Ken did an awesome job and it makes me want to do the same to mine :)

He started out by sanding off the paint with 500 grit sandpaper and working his way finer right up to 2000 grit and then finishing off with some Meguiar’s NXT Generation metal polish. The results are amazing -  see for yourself!

ASG STI Duty One 1911 Blowback CO2 BB Pistol Review

24 Comments

Type: BB air pistol.
Manufacturer: ASG.
Model:  ASG STI Duty One 1911 Blowback.
Materials: Metal slide and polymer frame.
Weight: 1.8 pounds.
Barrel: Metal non-rifled.
Propulsion: CO2 x 1.
Action: Semi auto blowback, single action.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 20 round magazine.
FPS: 383.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the ASG STI Duty One 1911 is nice and light due to its true blowback operation that cocks the hammer back with each shot taken. The pull is rather long but nothing really happens till you get right to the end and then there is just a slight bit of pressure and a quick release.
Accuracy: I shot the STI Duty One 1911 air gun at a target from 20 feet away in a free standing position, and it performed well getting a 1.5 to 2 inch grouping right in the center of the target. The rear sight is adjustable for windage which is always nice to have just in case you are shooting a bit to the left or right. For me there was no need to adjust the sights. My Chrony testing with an eight shot averaged result was 373 fps - very decent for a blowback pistol!
Build Quality: ASG did an awesome job designing and making the STI Duty One 1911 Blowback BB gun, they didn't really compromise on anything other than the polymer frame! With that said all that important parts like the Slide, Slide Catch, Safety, Mag Release, Hammer, Barrel and Magazine are all metal. The fit and finish as with all the ASG air guns is excellent!
Realism: The ASG STI Duty One 1911 Blowback is a really close replica to the real steel STI 1911, the only real giveaway is the trigger design, as a true 1911 trigger is not your typical lever type. Even with the different type of trigger the STI Duty One is a very good replica complete with all the STI licensing and trademarks.
Purchased From: The Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • Realistic true blowback action.
  • Adjustable rear sight for windage.
  • True single action blowback gun.
  • Excellent quality control. Very well made, fit and finish is excellent
  • Good power, accuracy, and CO2 efficiency for a blowback gun.
  • Metal dropout magazine.
  • Good STI Replica.
  • Extremely enjoyable gun to shoot!

Cons:

  • Trigger is not true to the real 1911 style.
  • Has a polymere frame, not metal.
  • I found the CO2 kind of hard to get out.

Comments:
I am quickly realizing that ASG is a company that makes not only some really nice air pistols, but also ones with excellent quality control and design. The STI Duty One 1911 Blowback CO2 BB gun is no exception to this and I found it a blast to shoot because it felt great in the hand, shot hard and on target, performed flawlessly and I was able to get a lot of shots from a CO2 even with the blowback and high fps for a blowback shooter. If you're a 1911 fan or you simply like full size guns that mean business, then take a look at the ASG STI Duty One 1911 Blowback CO2 BB pistol. If I had to pick one BB shooter to take out for a day of plinking, this would probably be the one!

ASG STI Duty One 1911 Blowback BB Pistol Arrives

9 Comments

Along with my Steyr M9-A1 that arrived today, I also received my ASG STI Duty One 1911 Blowback BB Pistol. I have to say every single ASG product that I have received to date has just really been a high quality product with absolutely excellent quality control. And my STI 1911 Duty One is no exception.

The ASG STI 1911 is not entirely metal but it does have good weight and it does have metal where you want like in the slide, barrel, trigger, hammer, magazine, magazine release button, safety and slide catch. The frame is however polymer.

It was nice to see an adjustable rear sight for windage and like a true 1911 the ASG STI 1911Duty One is single action only so you will need to cock the hammer or rack the slide to get it going. I'm really looking forward to shooting this gun tomorrow so look forward to that YouTube video review coming up very shortly, maybe even by tomorrow night I'll have it up?
