Swiss Arms SA 1911 SSP Pistol

  • Uses 12-gram CO2 cartridges
  • Semiauto
  • 18rd removable BB magazine (also holds the CO2 cartridge)
  • Fixed front and rear sights
  • Functional grip safety
  • Polymer Grips
  • Blowback
  • Single-action
  • Metal construction
  • Checkered grips
  • Single-action only

The box states that this gun comes with Hop-Up (spin), but it does not.

Almost identical to its real steel counterpart this full-metal 1911, this Swiss Arms SA 1911 has the heft and feel of one the most iconic American handguns. Load up a single 12g CO2 cartridge and send its 18rds downrange at speeds up to 320 fps. A checkered grip ensures a steady hold for you to perfect your aim while looking down the fixed sights.  Best of all, the realistic blowback locks the slide back when out of ammo! Pick up another clip to stay in the action!

Things I liked: This thing is amazing I've handled plenty of bb guns. This thing is probably built better than the real 1911. Crispy lock back every function works excellent. The blow back is hard! Really nice compared to my p226 that gun weighs about half a pound more and this 1911 blow back has way more of a kick. Would buy this again. I'm looking to buying the other two variants or any other bb gun from Smith and Wesson cyber gun. This thing is made to last

Things I would have changed: Full magazine instead of having the side cut hole for the co2. Other than that this gun is still a 10/10 on my book

What others should know: Buy it you won't regret it

Things I liked: This is a really nice pistol. The fit and finish are suburb and the plastic grips look and feel like wood to me. I really like the strong blow back of this pistol and it comes apart quickly. Feels and looks like the real deal. Trigger is decent and the accuracy in my basement shooting range was excellent for a bb gun. I've only shot it with the smart shot BB's and it out shoots my older abillty's. A nicely done pistol.

Things I would have changed: A catch on the magazine to hold the follower down for the loading of the BB's

What others should know: Not really. You can't go wrong for the price.

Things I liked: I was impressed taking this Swiss Arms (SA) 1911 SSP replica BB pistol out of the box. It seemed to be half the weight of my Springfield Range Officer which surprised me, having only fired BB gun rifles back in the 1980s. The slide was glass-smooth with a very small amount of play. The SA 1911 field stripped in a similar fashion the a real 1911. The clip with the BBs and CO2 cartridge was easy to insert and seated well. Having the clip go in well was important. My experience with both the Swiss Arms SSP and the TRS was that of jamming on nearly every shot, requiring a spare clip loaded with CO2 to un-jam the barrel.

Things I would have changed: I would have Swiss Arms produce a 1911 replica that does not jam on nearly every shot.

What others should know: I found several strategies that led to successful firing of this pistol: 1) if you fire in a downward direction, the jamming was less frequent; 2) fire this pistol only at aluminum cans so you can confirm that the BB left the barrel; 3) if the BB jams in the barrel, un-jamming procedure is simple using a spare clip loaded with CO2 but no BBs, and firing once, leaving the slide locked confirming un-jamming was successful; 4) it is important to not attempt firing if you suspect a jam because the gas tube will jam with additional BBs; 5) lubricating a new BB pistol does not help, because it did not help the SSP or TRS; and 6) both Copperhead BBs and Swiss Arms BBs jammed with equal frequency, be careful.

  • Jeffrey from USA asked:

    In your opinion, which BB (steel or copper plated) works best for this pistol?

    • Joe from USA asked:

      I just got the Swiss Arms SA 1911 SSP CO2 BB Pistol in the box is a black plastic threaded piece that seems to screw in to the front of the barrel, the manual dose not show this piece can someone help please

      • Hook from USA:

        It's aluminum, it is an adapter that will allow attachment of the JBU 4.5" or other mock suppressor cans. 14mm left hand threads, if memory serves.

    • William from USA asked:

      What is the difference between the 1911 ssp and the trs?

      • Markus from USA:

        The SSP is the classic design while the TRS has a skeletonized trigger, commander hammer, picatinny (sp) rail underneath, Novak style sights, and a ambidextrous thumb safety.
