when you drop the mag for bb,s will this discharge the co2
09/07/2017 Hi Steve, Dropping the mag will not discharge the Co2. I recommend putting a drop of Crosman Pellgun oil on the tip of every 10 or so Co2 cartridges that you run through the gun, not only does it help to lubricate the cartridge to the piercing pin seal (in the mag) preventing leakage; it also helps to lube the internal components. Keeping the gun free of a build up of internal contaminants is the key to getting years of enjoyment from a Co2 powered air gun. Cheers! chad
If Umarex can get this one made with a rear adjustable sight why not the Colt 1911 a1 Pellet @$229.99 have one?
Why is it so difficult to find extra mags for this pistol I love shooting it and would like to continue shooting it but I have searched for more mags thank god I was able to prolong my current mags life and it works flawlessly please let me know when or where they are available.
Pistol is discontued and so are mags
where can i get extra mags
hi i want to buy this i love it but i see and the P30 is the p30 better because the p30 has double price from this??
Who is this manufactured by ?
Does it have blow back system ?
The magazine latch is made of plastic and broke off the release button, can I get a replacement part?
Call 479-646-4210 ask for the service department.
This air pistol are full metal
yes, it is
looks like you can drop the bb part of the mag and leave the co2 part, right? otherwise how can you drop the whole mag and not disengage the co2 cart. and empty it?
The valve is in the magazine. That's a common design in higher-end BB guns.
Can we field strip this gun?
How much are extra magazines for this?
too expensive, so they are not here
If I have 2 or 3 magazines to use, doesn't that mean I would have to use a CO2 cartridge for each? What is the advantage to multiple magazines when you have to reload each anyway?
Many people like to reload the magazines then shoot more shots in a string before breaking concentration and reloading again.
That is correct. Having multiple mags would allow you pre-load the magazines before going out to shoot and allow you to quickly change between magazines without having to pause to reload after each one. Often times shooters looking to replicate mag changes for competition will buy and use a few at a time.
I was wondering about the grips for this gun. Can they be removed? And if they can, can they be replaced with actual 1911 grips designed for .45 ACP 1911's?
Bought a set from Hogue. Unfortunately the screw holes are just a fraction off and can't be used..
No the screw holes dont line up.
We don't know if the screw holes would line up on a standard 1911 firearm
is it a blowback pistol?
It is not a blowback pistol. It has a double action trigger, but you can cock the hammer back manually and it will shoot with a lighter single action trigger pull. Watch the video next to the description.
I'm thinking about getting this pistol, but have some concerns regarding the trigger because some people have complained about it and the heavy pull. Does the trigger pull get lighter and better after a break-in period of several hundred shots? Also, what's the closest competitor to this model? I can't find many BB pistols with an adjustable rear sight and am looking for a BB pistol with 400+ fps, adjustable sights, and metal parts.
Trigger pull is better if you pull the hammer back manually. The accuracy improves also..
It does not necessarily get lighter, but it does not feel heavy when you shoot it (even though video shows high trigger pull, it's very common for all CO2 pistols). It's more about the feel than the actual force for these ones.
Can you cock the gun and is it realistic??
Yes and mostly yes. The trigger is unlike a real 1911 and the grip safety is stationary and will not move so that's why I say it feels mostly realistic. It's got good heft, pretty to look at, 99% metal, what's not to like? I enjoy the heck out of mine.
Does the clip/magazine come with it ?
Yes. Recommend you buy an extra though. You won't want to stop shooting this beautiful replica!
