Read more about the Remington 1911 RAC BB Pistol in Dennis Adler's Airgun Experience Blog.
Lots of realism! Remington Arms makes several 1911 firearms, so they know a thing or two about what shooters want in this classic pistol design. No matter what your reason for buying this gun, you're going to enjoy shooting it for hours on end.
Whether you're looking for a fun BB gun to shoot on your home range or need a pistol to help you stay proficient with your firearm, the Remington 1911 RAC is the one to get.
BBs are less than a penny a round. Compare that to what live ammo costs. Add the benefits of not having to go to a range, and you're way ahead of the game.
When shooting a BB gun, everyone in the vicinity should wear safety glasses. Never shoot at hard objects. Steel BBs easily ricochet, so everyone in the area must wear safety glasses. Remember to remove all pets before commencing to shoot.

Things I liked: realistic appearance, weight, and operation; windage-adjustable rear sight, which I didn't need to adjust; accuracy (allowing for the fact that it's shooting spherical projectiles from a non-rifled barrel)
Things I would have changed: how to puncture the CO2 cartridge
What others should know: I chose this 1911 version partly because it has a drift-adjustable rear sight (according to the manual). Out of the box, the point of impact was at the point of aim at ~5 meters (elevation and windage). No adjustment needed. Most of the BBs were within a 2" circle at that distance, which may improve as I do. The trigger pull was very short, with a very crisp break. It was a little heavier than I expected, but I have no way to measure it. I lost some gas when loading the CO2, but still got about 60 good shots. Temperature: 59 degrees F. I bought some Dust Devil BBs to go with it, in order that BBs wouldn't bounce around my garage. According to the manufacturer's website, Dust Devils are intended for 1.5 ft-lb muzzle energy, minimum. Even though this pistol is rated at more like 1.25 ft-lb, none of the Dust Devils left the steel trap.
Things I liked: Feels like a real steel. Weight is realistic. Racking the slide and trigger are also realistic. Comfortable to hold. Definitely a high maintenance pistol. I've only shot four co2 cans at the time of this review and can already see some wear marks on certain spots. The stripping is realistic and definitely needed as you'll need to keep some things oiled up. Accuracy is ok at 15 feet, anything more and it's not great. Power seems to be mostly in the blowback as my 10 dollar Daisey springer is just as powerful. It was barely penetrating 1&1/2 inch cardboard at 15 feet. So power is not this guns strong point. I think the perfect price for this pistol would be 70-80 dollars, not a hundred. This is purely a replica, not a bullseye popper.
Things I would have changed: The seal. The white material they use for the co2 puncture/tip is too hard. I'd like to see how this magazine/pistol would do with an umarex/green seal which, are softer and work much better.
What others should know: If you want a realistic 1911 this may be it. But..accuracy and power is not this guns strong point. I have a 30 dollar umarex that shoots much harder than this. Feels real, looks real, strips like a real one..but powerful, no. Accurate..only up to 12-15 feet tops. If you have a spare hundred to spend, go for it, but I'd use every coupon or discount possible to try and get this cheaper. It's nice, but if I could turn back time..i'd get something else.
Things I liked: Good weight. Nice blowback feature.
Things I would have changed: I would like to see all the white lettering disappear. That really takes away from the look of the gun

I have owned this product for about 5 months and the hammer has fully brokered off, who should I contact about this?
Parts will come from Crosman
Second question: Can the 1911 RAC fire pellets?
No, BBs only
First of 2 questions: Can 1911 grips be used with modification (via Dremmel/router) to the "grip soul" you mentioned?
Actually, I just saw a Yoitube vid that answers my question. The answer is YES!!!
