Things I liked: Great price, (used 10% discount ). Pleasantly surprised my getting 70+ bb's out of a 38 yr. old Daisy CO2 cartridge using 38yr. old BB's. Fairly close groupings using old Daisy's, included Excite's, and the Billes Meatal. (my favorite ).
Things I would have changed: Send more Billes Metal bb's with the gun.
What others should know: My old cartridges and BB's have been in a unheated Garage for over 30 yrs. no rust and all Daisy cartridges weighed over 42 grams before shooting.
Things I liked: Was impressed with the realism compared to my 70 series 1911 Colt, that I bought new in early 1960's, which also has identical plastic grips from the factory. Field strip and reassembly is almost identical. Was very impressed that there were no casting lines or flashing. At a few feet away practically indistinguishable from a real Colt except for the white lettering and the gunmetal matte finish. If it were made of steel vs aluminum and able to be blued would be identical looking. The weight and balance is very close to my 45 Colt.
Things I would have changed: Make the internal parts that have high wear points out of steel. Change the clip so would not have to hold the spring loaded carrier when loading. An easy modification with a Dremel tool that I made, and reduces the max capacity by two B-Bs. Accuracy inside a three inch circle at twenty feet,if there were no flier's would be comparable to my 45 Colt. I tried four different types of ammo, and I could not really see much difference, which is to be expected with a smooth bore. Trigger pull is very good with little creep.
What others should know: Blow-back operation very realistic. Even has the same potential for hammer and slide bite if not held correctly when shooting just like the original. I bought this gun for training others in proper handling,firing,etc before moving to a real 45 caliber 1911.
Things I liked: Swiss Arms 1911 CO2 BB Pistol - Best buy 12-12-2015 at $79.99, within 2 week later now $119.99. I also have the Colt Commander at $99.99 now $119.99. Both guns use the same magazines so pick the cheapest and buy more. Swiss arms 1911 has the best trigger trigger at 2.5 lbs. With a full CO2 has nice recoil even tho it does not match the real thing. It is excellent for practicing muscle memory and especially for practicing with left hand. Accuracy is very good and much better than I expected at 10 to 12 yards.
Things I would have changed: Drop the price back where it belongs at $79.99. Add 3 dot sights so I don't have to paint them on.
What others should know: BUY IT if you can handle the price. I will buy another if price ever gets back to $79.99 ... lol

Dear Sir/Madam: I would like to buy Swiss Arms 1911 CO2 BB Pistol from your company, but I don't know how can i get it as I am living in Cambodia--it's far away. And further, if I get the above product from you and then once I run out of CO2, can i still shoot it out? and can I refill it with simple gas which we use it for cooking? One more question, I order it from your site so how long will I get it? Thank you in advance for your prompt response. best, Kimtheang Battambang city, Cambodia
I have a Crimson Trace Laser Site / Grip that was at one point on an actual .45 Springfield. I sold that gun but kept the grip, it is a wrap around style grip with a built in laser. On the bottom of the mag well on this pellet gun, there is a cut-out for the mag to fit with the C02 but it looks like the grips have no cut-out in them, they look like they may fit flat on the frame, can anyone confirm that? I want to know if I can use my Crimson Trace Grips on this, it would be kinda cool :)
