The Colt 1911 CO2 Pistol is a logical continuation of the gas blowback model. The gun has a blowback recoil feature, but is propelled by CO2 instead of green gas. The floorplate of the magazine is slightly wider, however the integration of the 12g CO2 powerlet is intelligently done without betraying the design of the original model.
The decorative finishing of the Colt 1911 CO2 in its entirety is superb. Not too matte, and not too flashy. The look of this pistol brings back a classic period in gun history. The blowback system on this CO2 version is just as powerful as its green gas powered counterpart. One 12 gram CO2 cartridge can fire up to 60 pellets. The crisp recoil sound of each shot adds realism to the shooting experience, and quickly makes users forget that this is an airsoft gun. With a power rating of less than 1 Joule, this CO2 model offers a rapid firing rate with an almost imperceptible loss of power. The hop-up system also allows you adjust the shot accuracy according to the distance of the target and the type of pellets used. The maximum range measured was 50 yards.
The Colt 1911 is easy to disassemble. First, remove the magazine, then remove the breech lock. The breech comes off by itself and gives you access to the hop-up adjustment controls, allowing you to maintain your 1911 replica properly.

Things I liked: I bought this 1911 after looking ALOT online, full metal, high quality dispite cyberguns mixed often lower quality prouducts. very good addition to my WWII and Vietnam loadout and looks great on the feild. great price.
Things I would have changed: the ugly co2 plug at the bottom of the mag. the orange tip beinging easyer to remove. but, overall great gun.
What others should know: ok starter gun, i would go a springer route the upgrade as you get more sesaoned like I did. this way you dont spend all the money on kick butt guns and then later you find airsoft is'ent for you.
