Things I liked:

Pistol looks great. Nice heft from the metal parts used and feels like a real M1911. Fairly quiet and good accuracy once you get used to the trigger. Love the adjustable rear sight.

Things I would have changed:

Change trigger. The trigger on this gun would be more at home on the CZ75 and detracts from the otherwise realistic looking pistol.

What others should know:

The double action trigger is long and heavy. Single action is much better. At 10 yards I had no trouble staying within a 4" circle using Umarex steel BB's. Well worth the selling price.

Things I liked:

Great looking pisto;

Things I would have changed:

upgrade the magazine

What others should know:

the tab that you pull back to load the bb's is flawed. Mine broke off on the second loading and is now useless. Spare magazines are also hard to come by and are expensive for a $99 pistol. Have contacted Umarex but haven't herd back yet. If anyone has any fix for this I would like your input.

    Things I liked:

    This is a long list. The fit and finish are quite good. The overall size is a true 1:1. The weight comes in a little less that an Alloy frame 1911, but is very close. Accuracy was good right out of the box. It fits my ECD holsters perfectly. The magazine drops away freely and the slide locks back on the last shot.

    Things I would have changed:

    This is nit picking. The grip safety is not functional and the slide is a short stroke. Neither of these minor things hurt the ability to practice.

    What others should know:

    First, the first shot can be a double action shot with a trigger pull of about 8 /12 pounds. When shot as a single action (normal for the 1911) the trigger pull was 4 1/2 pounds. Either pull is acceptable and easy to control. Unfortuanly PA didn't have spare magazines, I haven't tried to source those yet, but they would be convenient for practicing reloads. The first 15 rounds were shot at 1/2 size veggie cans at 10 yards. 14 out of 15 were hits, pretty sure the miss was my fault. The second 15 were shot in doubles and triples from the holster at a large tide bottle at 20 yards. 15 out of 15 were hits in a spot that I could cover with my hand. Trigger reset seems a bit long but is easy to learn. I am going to enjoy this pistol, it is nice looking, accurate and inexpensive to shoot. For the cost of about 5 or 6 boxes of 45 ammo you can get the pistol, supplies and a truck load of practice. I'm tempted to get a spare.

    Things I liked:

    Look and feel. This gun is so fun to look at and shoot. My grandson and I have a blast with it in the backyard.

    Things I would have changed:

    After three magazines the keeper of the spring wore down and keeps popping loose and now I have a hard time loading the bbs. My grandson can’t load it at all. I think they need to do some type of a modification to the spring keeper.

    What others should know:

    Beware!! This gun does not have a one-year warranty as stated on the website. I found this out after sending it back to the manufacturer to see if they could fix it. Finally after a couple of phone calls I was informed that this gun is not expensive enough to have a one-year warranty. And its only good for 90 days. Very frustrating.

    Things I liked:

    Glad to see a non-blowback replica still available. I prefer putting the CO2 into launching the BB rather than cocking the gun. I'm getting >90 shots on one CO2 cartridge and the muzzle speeds are ~390 fps. Accuracy is sub 2 inch groups of ten at 7 yards. The gun is basement noise friendly shooting into a rubber mulch box. The white dot front sight and black rear square notch sight works for me. Initial double action trigger pull was 9lb 11oz and single-action was 3lb 11 oz, but it's long and smooth.

    Things I would have changed:

    Make the cheap plastic grips compatible with standard 1911 grips. The faux strap safety needs to be flush rather than protruding from the grip. It provides an awkward purchase that wouldn't exist on the real gun where it would be depressed to fire. The logo and warning info on the righthand slide face is ugly, but I used 600 grit wet sandpaper and light pressure to remove it. This removes the lettering and leaves the slide polished to match the other side. The cheap plastic grips sound hollow when tapped. I fill the underside with silicone later

    Things I liked:

    The feel, the action, the looks are all I could've asked for in this model.

    Things I would have changed:

    The method of loading BB's is very awkward and needs to go back to the original design.

    What others should know:

    The magazine is very difficult to load and many BB's miss the small opening.

    Things I liked:

    Good weight, solid feel, looks absolutely great, real collectors piece, nicest bb pistol I have ever owned. Slide works to push hammer back for less trigger pull, hammer actually works, solid ammo clip smartly combined with the co2 cylinder bed. CO2 lasted a long time and shots remained on target at 10-15 feet. Extremely pleased!

    Things I would have changed:

    A real blowback slide but then co2 gets blown away too. Sliding trigger instead of the hook just for a little more historical accuracy to the original 1911.

    What others should know:

    The hammer looks like it could be easily broken. Not super accurate but still fun. L
