The Umarex website says the front blade sight on this pistol is replaceable under details. Are the replacements different heights to adjust for different points of impact? Is the replacement difficult to do? Or is it required to send the gun to the factory ?
How about getting Umarex to have available an adjustable target rear sight that Colt 1911A1 Pellet owners can purchase and install themselves.
I see the Umarex Colt combat classic comes with a rear adjustable sight and is $99.99 . Why not the Colt 1911a1 Pellet @$229.99 ?
Is the rear sight replaceable with a 1911 adjustable target sight? has anyone done this yet? Is the rear slide sight cutout a Bomar? Can the slide be milled to a commercial cutout such as Bomar, will the metallurgy allow this without ruining the slide?
Is it possible to use an ambidextrous safety?
Not this one safety is operated by the right thumb .
Can you shoot this pistol as single action 95% of the time?
Can you field strip the 1911
not this one
From looking at the owners' manual I will say this it is not a Cot 1911 though it might look like it on the outside... So it is assembled but your 1911 experience will be of little use.
What exactly is the reason for the much higher price on this pistol? Am I missing something?
Made in Germany.
Is this the Colt 1911 A1 (Co2 Blowback) Semi Auto - 100th Anniversary Limited Edition? If not is it avaikable?
No. There is Limited Edition Colt available but it's a BB pistol. This one is a pellet pistol.
This pistol was already overpriced at $199. Why the $20 price increase? Has the gun been upgraded?
Price increases Pyramyd passing to customers? It's made in Germany.
Blowback action on this gun ?
what are the trigger pull specs on this double action piece?
Just reverse these trigger pull values.
For single action the trigger pull is about 6 pounds and for double action the trigger pull is about 2 pounds.
Does anybody have experiance or knowledge of put grips from a real 1911 on these guns? Steve
I am not sure why Tyler said that... since looking at the owners' manual I read up on some forums and they say that thin grips will work if you drill out the back to allow for the larger bushing size and the bracket. "Umarex went for a non-standard fitting on the right hand side to accomodate the clip system for the removeable grip for changing the CO2 cartridge so some machining would be called for." Hope my grip order placed on Tyler's word got cancelled in time LOL
Yes it is a true replica, you can replace them with real 1911 grips
