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.

Things I liked: Detailed replica, very good accuracy, field strips just like the real thing. Nice trigger pull, more like a custom job than a stock 1911. My friend bought an Umarex Colt 1911 non-blowback pellet gun (the German-made one) and he likes the Commander trigger much better. And he paid $100 more for his! This gun is really fun to shoot.The owner's manual says to use a 6-o'clock hold, but mine shoots to point of aim at 15-20 feet. I do a lot of plinking with my 17-year old daughter and she enjoys it as much as I do. Its like shooting a .22 auto loader. That being said, you will burn through a lot of ammo and C02 cartridges, but its worth it. A great way to train for the real thing at a fraction of the cost, and you can do it in your own back yard. I have put almost a thousand rounds through this gun without any failures, but see below for more on that. A great air gun for the money! Actually, a great air gun, period. This is my favorite one so far, I have several others.
Things I would have changed: The only issue I have with this gun is that the sights are not adjustable and they are a little loose. Other reviewers have mentioned this too. I don't know if they came that way or they just progressively got loose, but one reviewer said that he put a little epoxy on both sights and it took care of the problem. The screw on the top of the rear sight appears to be for show, I tried to adjust it but it doesn't work. I don't think the sights being a little loose affects the accuracy that much, but I may try the glue trick anyways. Three-dot system makes target acquisition easy when recovering from each shot. The finish on this gun scratches fairly easily (its paint), so be careful not to drop it or scrape your magazines against it.
What others should know: When I first bought this gun I used Crossman Copperhead BB's and Crossman CO2 cartridges. Big mistake. The BB's constantly bunched up in the magazine and caused it to jam and misfire, even though I had lubricated the spring and follower. I had to field strip the gun several times to clear everything out. The Crossman CO2 cartridges don't seat very well and will apparently ruin the seal on the magazines. Once I started using Umarex and Hornady steel BB's the problem was completely solved. Not a single jam or misfire after almost 1,000 rounds. I also only use Umarex CO2 cartridges now which give better performance. You get about 3.5 - 4 magazine loads before the power starts to noticeably fade. Others have complained about the magazine being hard to load, but honestly folks, its not that difficult once you get the hang of it. Load over a bowl or something like that and you won't lose a lot of BB's. Buy the extra mags, it's helpful when you are shooting with another person.
Things I liked: Beautiful pistol in every detail of the finish. It work and feel like a real 1911.
Things I would have changed: To have it for pellets like the Crossman 1911, may be that will make it more accurate.
Things I liked: Feel and weight of pistol
Things I would have changed: The way BBs are put into the clip is harder than it should be and takes long

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?
