Things I liked:The weight and balance are very close to the real thing, the sights are better than a stock 1911 and the rear is drift adjustable, just be careful the slide is cast.
Things I would have changed:Very difficult to remove spent CO2 and crosman CO2 are very very tight. Grip panel should had metal spring not plastic and color could be better.
What others should know:This is a great gun for training when you cant get to the range but it is not accurate. Groups at 7 yds are 3-4 inchs and 6+ at 10 yds, thats the same group I get with my 1911 at 25 yds. Use Daisy BBs, all others are less accurate even Avanti.
Things I liked:I love this pistol. It has the heft and action of a real 1911.
Things I would have changed:Option of buying wooden grips and spare mags would be good. I find it a little hard to get the spent CO2 cartridge out.
What others should know:It's wonderful! After six months + it still makes me smile when I pick it up. It lays on my desk all the time. Often when I need to look away from the monitor I pick it up, flip off the safety, pull back the hammer and squeeze off a few rounds at the target across the room. Blow back feels great and helps me practice quickly reacquiring the sight picture. And even when the CO2 is finally gone, the slide locking back makes me grin. I thought about the cheaper versions, but as soon as I pulled it out of the box this Winchester proved it was worth every penny.
Things I liked:This is better than expected in all respects (for the price). Pleasant appearance, heft and trigger operation. Smooth trigger travel and hammer release at about 4.6 pounds. This trigger is not objectionable for me for a field pistol. Slide may seem a little weak holding in forward position. The grouping of this replica is about one inch at 21 FT. using Crossman copper coated steel BBS Like- Raising the CO2 loading lever automatically raises the left side grip allowing for easy grip removal.
Things I would have changed:Concerns- CO2 cartridge removal requires two hands, small spring retainer must be pushed out of the way to allow the cartridge to fall free, may even want a small stick to aid in removal. Need to have extra magazines but they are not available. Without magazine, this item will not function. I would buy a different model having extra (stronger) magazines even for the extra cost. This is why I give a overall 4 star rating. Would like a service/parts manual for those of us that can service our equipment. Grip color detracts from otherwise excellent product.
What others should know:I had some old powerlets that had been around for over 10 years and the gas content was measured at 3 gms. These low volume 3-4 gm CO2 powerlets would operate the Blow back for about 20 cycles and groups were about 1 in. at 21 ft. The slide will lock open after the last shot out of the magazine if blow back is functioning. The slide failed to fully cycle after 20 shots (low gas) but point of impact did not drop much (-1/2 in). The last five shots drop off dramatically. You can remove the BB clip and hold the trigger while pushing the hammer forward to exhaust the remaining low gas in the powerlet. Point at target while discharging gas. My testing was done at 21 ft from the target, both off-hand and a crutch were used to compare grouping. Little difference observed between the two methods. Crutch cut down on the fliers. Note - if you can hear the impact of the hit on the target at 21 feet, it is a sign of low gas and shots will be low. That is time for changing the CO2 powerlet.
