By randal from USA on 2012-04-08 14:13:53Things I liked:I just started collecting replica air guns about a year ago, the 1911 was not my first purchace but having carried one in the service it was on my short list. After some research I purchased the Tanfoglio Witness because it was reviewed as the most acurate reproduction. I was set on a gun with Colt markings being the 100th anniversary but was not disapointed in the least. I find this gun almost as much fun to clean as it is to shoot. The gun fits together very well and the action is great. The blowback delivers a kick that most .22s don't have. The slide locking back after the last shot still brings a smile. Endless 1911 grips to choose from will fit with a little shaping from a Dremel tool. If you are only going to own one co2 pistol this is it.
Things I would have changed:The only thing I feel could be improved is the magazine. When you pull back and compress the spring during loading the post that's attached to it rises up. You have to push it back into place so it feeds properly. I feel that's nit picking when I look at the hole package.

By David from USA on 2013-11-13 21:20:30Things I liked:This looks and mostly functions like a real 1911. It mostly metal and has some good heft in the hand.
Things I would have changed:I had trouble with this gun right out of the box. It came with I believe 5 CO2 cartridges and it blew off all 5 of them after just a couple shots. It was like: Bang! Bang! Bang, hissssssss! It acted like that 5 times in row. Eventually, it started working. I put about 4 more CO2 cartridges through it and started continuously leaking out of the control value. On top of that, it stopped feeding BBs correctly. The bolt would no longer close as it started trying to strip two BBs at once. Almost as soon as the actions starting cycling, the finish was scrapped off of the front left side as well as the ejection port area. The paint scraping is to be expected, but it would have been nice if it was designed not to wear so soon.
What others should know:I'm going to be sending the pistol into Palco Sports to see if they'll cover repairs to the pistol on warranty. I've literally had it two days and it has disappointed right out of the box. I may revise this review if Palco is able to provide a remedy.
