Things I liked: The feel of this gun is very realistic. It shoots well also. When shooting this gun, it feels and acts like the .45 ACP Colt 1911, both in double and singles action modes. I give the "Accuracy" rating a 5 star because it has about the same accuracy as the original. The .45 ACP Colt 1911 was designed for "Close combat with high impact", (stopping power is it's strength not accuracy). So if you want to get better with your "real" .45 ACP Colt 1911, this is the perfect tool to use. At 15 feet I can hit the Center of the Ten Ring every time. At 50 feet the "Sight picture is different, (the front sight is "Higher" than the Rear Sight. It's that simple. The grouping is tight at close range, scattered at 50 feet, but still inside a half dollar.
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: The .45 ACP Colt 1911 has no adjustment on the rear sight. To learn to shoot this pellet gun or the original 1911, properly, then you need to interpolate the correct Sight Picture to be accurate at different distances. If you are looking to hit the center of the "Ten ring" then buy a gun that is designed for Target practice, there are plenty of single shot target pistols to choose from. If you want "Accuracy" and 'Realism" then choose an 8" barrelled, Single action, Revolver. Also, for the Colt 1911 CO2 pistol, buy extra magazines and Ammo, because this gun is very fun to shoot. So Far I have had no jams, I am using H&N Sport 8.18 g pellets, 3000 rounds so far.
Things I liked: I had the opportunity to get out and test my new Colt 1911A1 pellet yesterday and couldn't get over it's accuracy right out of the box. It's a shame a pistol this accurate does not have an adjustable rear target sight option in place of the rear combat one. The Colt 1911 Combat Classic has one and is a BB pistol and over a $100 cheaper and not as accurate. Disappointed with the reasoning behind this.
Things I would have changed: Needs an adjustable rear Target sight as an option.
What others should know: Great single action trigger pull.
Things I liked: Very accurate replica! Side by side with my Colt Custom Combat 1911 and looks the same! Like the ease of loading the Co2 in the grip! Rotary mags work well also but takes s little time to load them up! Get a few extra! Good accuracy at 20 paces in my basement. Shooting 2 inch groups or better with a few 1 inch groups now and then. Have 494 shots thru it with no problems. Very well made with excellent fit and finish!
Things I would have changed: Would like a elevation adjustable sight. Shoots an inch high at 20 paces but at this distance the pellet may be at the high point in its ballistic curve. May work out good at 25 paces or more. Wouldn't change much else! Don't know that parts are easily available! Have checked Umarex website and have not found anything! This pistol is more expensive than most other replicas but the quality and shootability it has is worth it!
What others should know: If you enjoy shooting airguns you'll like this one!
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 ?
