Read and see more about the Colt Commander in Dennis Adler's latest Airgun Experience Blog.
Colt is the king of 1911 firearms, and this is just one more example of why they dominate the field of 1911 guns.
The Commander CO2 pistol is a faithful replica of the firearm with the same name. If you're lucky enough to have the firearm version, you absolutely must get the air gun version! You'll save a fortune in ammo as you maintain proficiency. Add to that the incredible amount of fun you'll have popping paper targets on your home range, and this gun is a win-win purchase.
Steel BBs can ricochet. The shooter and everyone in the shooting area should wear safety glasses when a gun is being handled (even if it's unloaded). Remember to remove all pets from the area, as rebounding ammo can hit them, too. Never shoot steel BBs at hard objects (including metal targets) or water, as that increases the chance of ricochet.

like the weight an feel of this pistolWhat others should know:
I have not shot this unit yet but what I see it looks an feels very good
Weight and feel close to the powder burner version. Very handsome look. Easy take-down. Black coloring is nice. Classic 1911 that would be right at home in a Humphrey Bogart movie. All metal construction. Has great white dot sights.Things I would have changed:
Adjustable targeting sights would have been great. The grips were good and felt good but wood simulation and brownish in color would have been better. CO2 consumption is heavy but is the cost of the realistic blowback.What others should know:
I changed the grips to dark brown wood on my Commander the day after it arrived. I had to hollow out the wood grips to compensate for the CO2 cartridge thickness but it was worth doing. I was able to get good power and shots in two full clips and kept the pattern within a 2" bullseye regularly at the 23 foot distance of my home range. Shooting specs on my Caldwell Chrony were: Hi Velocity 312 fps, Lo Velocity 300 fps, Range: 12, Mean Velocity 305 fps. Standard Deviation: 3.49. Performance was, in my opinion, pretty good. As a reminder, blowback pistols are meant for plinking fun, not for serious target accuracy. My Colt shot consistently below and a little off to the right but it was fairly easy to compensate. I own a number of 1911 replicas. The 1911 is my favorite model and the Commander is a great addition to my collection. If you like 1911s you should go for this one.
It's a very realistic replica of a 1911. Though it doesn't seem to replicate any one specific M1911, it matches a standard 5" GI style with some upgrades. It looks great and feels awesome. The weight is not too far off from the real thing (with respect to different materials used) As far as the actual shooting goes, it's insanely fun. The blowback is lightning fast (some describe it as sluggish compared to other blowback pistols, I find it to be the opposite) and gives off unbelievable recoil for an airgun, similar to a .22 rimfire. I usually load just 7 or 8 BBs for realism but sometimes you just can't beat loading up all 18 rounds and dumping the mag on your target. The accuracy is excellent for a BB gun, though it's easy to forget about groupings when rapid firing. The sights are simple 3 dot and they work great.Things I would have changed:
The warning markings are quite excessive, and I unfortunately cannot find a way to get rid of them. Also I personally would remove the S/F markings from the safety. The recoil spring plug has a lip at the end which prevents it from sliding out the front of the slide on disassembly, unlike the real steel. However, I'm sure an aftermarket one could fit in place, and I may give it a go. Not a big deal either way. The slide catch doesn't allow me to release the slide by racking it, again a minor issue. The finish is rather poor and will flake pretty easily, but leaves behind a cool 'battle-worn' look.What others should know:
Buy a few extra magazines so you won't have to stop and reload them as much, it's the only thing that takes away from the fun of shooting this pistol.
Got a question or answer?
Can you change out the sights?
The rear sight can be removed. The front sight is fixed.
Can this gun shoot copper metal BBs?
Is anyone else having issues with the slide locking back on every shot? I have to push the slide release after every shot.I'm using the Daisy Premium Grade zinc-coated steel BB's, not sure if that's the problem. Haven't tried any others yet. And before you ask, it's happening with both of my mag's, using Umarex CO2. Any suggestions?
