Things I liked: This is one good looking pistol. Even the polymer frame, grips and sights are so well made that you can not tell by looking that they are plastic. The one I have shoots to point of aim. The rear sight is adjustable for windage and elevation is right on at 10 yards. This one also shoots very consistent groups of about 1-1/2" overall for a magazine load of 20 Daisy Avanti steel BB's. I know its accuracy is actually better than that, but that is what I am able to do from the free standing position. Loading the magazine is simple. The slide has a catch latch and when depressed you can load the BB's. You must block the other side of the BB port with a finger and hold the magazine almost upright so the BB's will drop into the slot that holds them. A properly designed speed-loader will make it less tedious, but I found loading by hand to be convenient enough. My rating is for 4 stars overall, but the indicator above does not seem to allow anything other than 5 stars.
Things I would have changed: The trigger is somewhat of a two-stage pull. First there is a light but long take up with a definite hard stop. It is here my complaint begins. The pull needed to break the trigger must be around 10 to 12 lbs. This is ridiculous. The one saving aspect of it is that it is a crisp predictable break once your muscle memory has become accustomed to it. It is not mushy or have any discernible movement until it breaks cleanly. If they could halve that pull force, this thing would get 5 stars. Each time you pull the trigger through its first stage, a BB is released from the magazine. Without actually firing the pistol but only pulling the trigger through its first stage and releasing it, you can empty the magazine. This also means that if you pull the trigger through the first stage, even if you hold it there and point the muzzle down, the BB will roll out of the barrel. There were some occasions that as I counted my shots, the slide locked back before I got to 20. I noted some double BB's.
What others should know: The velocity rating 383 fps of this pistol is honest and spot on as you shoot once every 10 seconds or so. Slow fire, pausing a minute between shots, it delivers about 400 fps. The blow-back action is robust and strong for a good shooting impulse. Reliability is great with no jams or misfires if you realize the aspect of its operation that if without actually firing the pistol but only pulling the trigger through its first stage and releasing it, you can empty the magazine. If the muzzle is not pointed downward and the BB does not roll out of the barrel you will have two or more BB's exiting the muzzle together. Once I realized this and made sure to complete the firing cycle I did not get any more double-feeds or misfires as long as I kept the muzzle level. This is an undesirable trait of the pistol design, but in practice it did not present a problem with my particular use of the pistol in target shooting. If you shoot in a manner that results in pointing the barrel down, beware.
Things I liked: I have the version of this pistol without blowback, but with the moving slide for single action shooting, as well as double action when you just pull the trigger. It is great that STI/asg made two versions of this air pistol! I may buy this blow back version and have the pair.
Things I would have changed: A skeleton trigger would have been a better choice for such an accurate replica.
What others should know: Shoot safe!
Things I liked: First of all my favorite guns are 1911s I was kind of concern about buying this one it don't have the weight that the other 1911s have but overall I was supplies, the blow back is very good it don't have the pouch that the others ones have but it's very good accuracy and you get about 80-90 shots per one single co2 cartridge it's a good buy .
Things I would have changed: I would consider changing the magazines to the ones that have the co2 and the ammo all in one , and put a palm safety on it I am not putting down this gun it's a very good gun .

Maybe a strange question but is it possible to swap out the grips? I've managed to do so on all my other 1911s. Thoughts?
Can this be shipped to Australia?? Is it legal?
Is it largely plastic or is the slide metal at least?
