The trigger pull on my KWC Model Colt 1911 All Metal Non-Blowback CO2 Airsoft Pistolwas a medium to hard. I have definitely experienced heavier trigger pulls on many double action only Airguns.
It is nice that the trigger has the look of a Colt 1911 and not your typical lever-style trigger.
I tried the trigger and found it to be very useful. The release point is nice and smooth.
The KWC Model Colt 1911 All Metal Non-Blowback CO2 Airsoft Pistol is a well balanced and sturdy gun that shoots incredibly accurate CO2 BBs. It’s accuracy may not be outstanding but it’s definitely acceptable. Shooting just to the left and high on the target gives me enough of an idea of what the gun is capable of.
With the Cybergun GSR Colt 1911 I found that I was able to zone in a little better as I got used to the trigger.
I also tested out the CyberGuns Sig Sauer GSR in my chronograph. I started out well above the 397 fps the company claimed, and settled down to just below it.
I had an 8 shot average of over 500 FPS with my new CO2.
The quality of the KWC Model Colt 1911 Airsoft gun is very good. This is an almost all metal Airsoft gun with a few exceptions like the hammer, trigger.
magazine release, slide catch and grip safety.
Pretty much everything else is metal. That includes the slide, frame, magazine, and even the grips.
The finish looks nice and it seems like it’ll be quite reliable.
The KWC Model 1911CO2 Airsoft Pistol closely replicates the real look, weight, and feel of the Sig-Sauer 1911 GSR.
The 1911 style trigger works great on a Colt 1911 pistol, just don’t expect to fire off more than two rounds a minute if you use the original Colt 1911 style spring.
The GSR (Glock Safety Razor) is a really nice replica of the real steel Sig Sauer GSR 1911 firearm. It’s got an authentic action that’ll give you everything you expect from a SIG SAUER 1911.

The M1911, also known as Colt 1911, or Colt Government, is a single-action, semi-automatic, magazine-fed, recoil-operated pistol chambered for the.45 ACP cartridge. The pistol’s formal designation as of 1940 was Automatic Pistol, Caliber.
There are several variations of the Colt 1911 design used for military and law enforcement, including the M1911A1, and there’s also a 9mm version.
This book will teach you how to shoot the best and fastest pistol shots you have ever taken. It’s a good idea for someone who has never shot a pistol before to learn how to shoot a pistol, because the gun is one of the best ways to practice accuracy.
The most popular compact variant is the Colt 1911, which is very popular with civilians due to its relative low weight and stopping power compared to other variants.
The.45 ACP has been used as a sidearm of many nations and armies around the world for a century now. It’s widely used in all modern conflicts, especially in Europe. There are several variants of it, including the U.S. version.
It’s hard to choose which sidearm to buy for military service. In 1985, the U.S. Army did not replace the 1911A1 with the Beretta M9. The reason is that the Colt 1911 had already become popular among users.
Modernized derivative variants of the Colt 1911 are still in use by some units of the U.S. Army Special Forces, U.S. Marine Corps, and the U.S. Navy.
Early History and Adaptations
An early history of the Colt 1911. In the late 1890s, it was becoming clear to the U.S. military that its service revolvers needed replacement. Several new pistols had been introduced during the previous decade and, besides being expensive, they had certain deficiencies. In response to the need, the U.S. Army began searching for a new weapon that would eventually be designated the “M1911”.
I predict there will be a lot of guns coming out of the 1920’s. There are revolvers being developed all the time, a few companies are working on semi-autos, and the Colt 1911 is getting a new design and a lot of new manufacturers are producing it.
The earliest self-loading rifles were the Colt–Mauschka carbines, designed in 1884, but they were too large and cumbersome to be easily used by soldiers. Maxim’s principle of using cartridge energy to reload, however, inspired other companies to design self-loading rifles. They did so, and several of them caught the attention of militaries, each of which began a program to develop a suitable one for its own needs.
In the United States such a program would lead to a formal test in the late 1800s. By the time of the turn of the 20th century, several self-loading pistols, including entries from Mauser (the C96 “Broomhandle”) and Colt (the Colt M1900., were tested. This led to a purchase of 1000 DWM Lugers, chambered in.45 ACP, a bottlenecked cartridge.
During the trials, they encountered some problems, especially with stopping power. Other governments had made similar complaints. Consequently, the German Military issued an enlarged version of the round, the 9mm Parabellum (known in current military parlance as the 9mm NATO), a necked-up version of the 7.65x25mm NATO round.
Fifty of these were tested as well by the U.S. Army in 1903. American units fighting Tausūg guerrillas in the Moro Rebellion in Sulu during the Philippine–American War using the then-standard Colt M1892 revolver,.38 Long Colt, found it to be unsuitable for the rigors of jungle warfare, particularly in terms of stopping power, as the Moros had high battle morale and often used drugs to inhibit the sensation of pain.
The problems that Army officials encountered during World War I made them look at their service revolvers and reconsider their decision to use the older M1873. They held tests in which they fired new pistols through sandbags charged with straw. A variety of loads were used and the rounds were recorded as to whether they were passed or stopped by the sandbag. These tests showed that the newer, more powerful.45 ACP round would penetrate the sandbag with a lot more force than a.38 Long Colt round.
The new handgun should not be of less than.45 caliber. And, it should be semi-automatic in operation. The new handgun should be available from several manufacturers.
Some people believe there is bias against Ruger’s double-action pistols. This is not correct. It appears that DWM was using the Ruger design, as it had done with some previous designs, to serve as a “whipping boy” to show how the company could have designed a better design.
However, the most important field test for the pistol design, which ended with Colt’s adoption of the design, occurred in 1907 when Colt tested six of their pistols against two Colt New Service pistols. The tests were conducted under laboratory conditions and involved a firing range of 1,400 yards. Six pistols were fired in sequence, with five of them being fired consecutively. In the end, the Colt proved to be more reliable, and they were selected as the official United States Army revolver.
Colt 1911 Design
The basic design of the Colt 1911 pistol has seen very little change throughout its production life. The principle of operation is recoil. As the expanding combustion gases force the bullet down the barrel, they give reverse momentum to the slide and barrel which are locked together during this portion of the firing cycle.
When the bullet leaves the barrel it continues forward and strikes the back of the slide, pushing it upward, into the frame. At this point, a link, pivoting the back of the slide downward, out of the frame’s locking recesses, stops the slide by making contact with the lower slide lugs.
As the slide continues to move rearward, a claw extractor pulls the spent casing from the firing chamber, and an ejector strikes the rear of the case, rotating it out and away from the pistol through the ejection port. The slide stops, then is propelled forward again by the recoil spring to strip a fresh cartridge from the magazine and feed it into the firing chamber. In recent years, with a rapid development of semiconductor device integration technology, a gate length is being miniaturized and a distance between a channel region and a source region or a drain region (that is, a gate-drain parasitic capacitance) becomes shorter. As a result, the influence of the gate-drain parasitic capacitance on the device characteristics such as a switching speed of a transistor is becoming more and more important.
The slide of the Colt 1911 has been redesigned, and it’s a great improvement. The Colt 1911 uses the same ammunition as the 9mm Luger and.45ACP, the latter being the most popular pistol caliber for the.45 ACP cartridge. The.45ACP is not just the same as the 9mm, it’s based on the same cartridge case. It’s lighter than the 9mm, so the recoil is lower, and more manageable, while the accuracy and performance is the same.
When the shooter is ready to field strip their weapon, the shooter should remove the safety catch and slide lock from the pistol.
The Colt 1911 is easy to disassemble; it is not a gun that needs to be fully disassembled to be cleaned or repaired. The trigger guard can be removed using a hand-held power tool and is accessible without removing any of the remaining parts of the pistol. The slide assembly, however, cannot be removed without first removing the entire frame of the pistol. This allows easy access to the barrel, but it also prevents the possibility of cleaning the firearm without disassembly. Many of the current commercial models of the Colt 1911 pistol have been designed to facilitate full disassembly.
Colt’s 80 series uses a trigger operated single-action revolver, and many other manufacturers, including Kimber and Smith & Wesson, use a Swartz firing-pin safety. This firearm comes with a loaded round of ammunition. The “Safe Action” button (on the bottom of the handle), if depressed, will disable the firing mechanism. Pulling the trigger will cause the gun to fire. Language cautioning against pulling the trigger with the second finger was included in the initial M1911 manual and later manuals up to the 1940s.
The same basic design was offered commercially and has been used by other militaries. In addition to the.45 ACP (Automatic Colt Pistol), models chambered for.38 Super, 9×19mm Parabellum, 7.65mm Parabellum, 9mm Steyr,.400 Corbon, and other cartridges were offered.
Colt’s M1911 was adopted by the US military in the 1910s and saw service through the mid-1900s. It beat out many other contenders during the government’s selection period, during the late 1890s and early 1900s, and it remained one of the best-selling pistols in the country until the 1960s.
Colt’s 1911 pistols are a mainstay of many law enforcement agencies worldwide. These pistols can be found in most major law enforcement agencies, from SWAT teams to the local police force. They were designed and built with durability and reliability in mind.
Colt 1911 Civilian Models
The Civilian model of the Colt Commander is a popular choice amongst handgun enthusiasts for their lightweight design, excellent handling characteristics, and low cost. It is generally considered one of the most accurate semi-automatic pistols of all time.
In 1970, Colt introduced the lightweight all-steel “Colt Lightweight Commander” (Colt Government Model), with a removable shoulder stock and a telescoping aluminum buttstock.  This weapon would later become the M16 and its variants.
This new series added a collet bushings on the barrel, making the gun easier to load.
In 1983, the Model 80 changed the firing pin safety from a solid bushing to an internal firing pin and introduced the half-cock notch.
There were also concerns about breakages of collet bushings. Colt Gold Cup National Match 1911/Mk. IV Series 70/Mk.
These days, you’re not going to find many handguns that are as well made as this one. It’s a National Match piece and it’s built by Colt as part of their Gold Cup series and it’s limited to just 200 pieces. In fact, it’s an M1911A1-type gun but has been altered to utilize the slide from their new MKIV pistol line, which is basically a modernized version of the old M1911 line of pistols, and it’s even more accurate than the original Colt 1911.
These models were manufactured in 1983 and 1984, and these models aimed at providing a more “mil-spec” pistol to be sold at a lower price than Colt’s other 1911 models in order to compete with imported pistols from manufacturers such as Springfield Armory and Norinco.
The 2001 Colt Government Model revolver incorporated full-size blued and stainless models in either.45 ACP or.38 Super. In addition, there were Commander versions in.45 ACP.
Colt 1911 Custom Models
A custom gun is easier to customize than a non-custom gun because the factory did not make all of the necessary parts for the customer. This is also why we can sell new parts for Colt 1911‘s for less money than OEM parts for Colt 1911‘s.
The M1911 pistol is the classic pistol of choice for competitive shooters around the world. Many gunsmiths are creating custom models with customized finishes and modifications to meet individual needs.
To enhance the effectiveness of the M1 Garand, several modifications have been implemented. These include using compensators and installing accessory devices such as tactical lights and scopes.
This makes the pistol heavier, and does not improve accuracy. Custom guns can cost over $5,000, and are made from scratch or based on existing base models. The most popular custom Colt 1911 makers include Dan Wesson Firearms, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Nighthawk Custom, Springfield Custom Shop, and STI International. IPSC models are offered by BUL Armory, Strayer Voigt Inc (Infinity Firearms) and STI International.
Colt 1911 Current users in the U.S.
As of September 2003, the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation used 1911A1 pistols for both personal use by agents and for the use of SWAT units.
The M1911A1 is one of the most popular guns for concealed carry. It’s practical, easy to use and a great choice for many different uses.
There are numerous aftermarket accessories available for M1911-style pistols. In addition to allowing the user to customize their pistols, these accessories offer a large array of options for competitive shooters as well.
Various tactical, target and compact models are available. Prices range from a low end of around $400 for basic pistols imported from the Philippines or Turkey (Armscor, Tisas, Rock Island Armory, Girsan, Seraphim Armoury) to over $4,000 for the best competition or tactical versions (Wilson Combat, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Nighthawk Custom, and STI International).
The Army Marksmanship Unit began looking to develop a new generation of 1911s in late 2004. Its goal was to create as many variants as possible, with several different configurations and accessories, in order to provide the end-user with as many options for a weapon that will best meet their mission needs.
Bragg and other locations. The project provided a feasibility study with insight into future projects. Models were loaned to various Special Operations units, the results of which are classified. An RFP was issued for a Joint Combat Pistol but it was ultimately canceled. Currently units are experimenting with an M1911 pistol in.40 S&W, which will incorporate lessons learned from the A2 project.
Ultimately, the M1911A2 project provided a testbed for improving existing M1911s. A better M1911 variant becoming available in the future is a possibility. The Springfield Custom Professional Model 1911A1 pistol is produced under contract by Springfield Armory for the FBI regional SWAT teams and the Hostage Rescue Team. It’s made in batches on a regular basis by the Springfield Custom Shop, and a few examples from most runs are available for sale to the general public at a selling price of about $2,700 each.
Colt 1911 International Users
The Brazilian company IMBEL (Indústria de Material Bélico do Brasil) still makes the pistol in several variants for civilian, military and law enforcement uses in.45 ACP,.40 S&W,.380 ACP and 9mm calibers.
IMBEL also produces for US civilian market as the supplier to Springfield Armory. Seraglios manufactures Filipino manufactured pistols for domestic and export use.
Both pistols are very similar and they are both made by Norinco, which is one of the leading manufacturers of arms in China.
In 2013, China manufactured conversion kits to chamber the 7.62×25mm Tokarev round. As of 2014, the pistol is made under license, rather than copying with Colt manufacturing machinery, due to a deal between Norinco and Colt to prevent Norinco from making the Norinco CQ rifle.
The first copy of a Colt M1911 chambered in.45 ACP was imported into the United States from Norinco, China by the company’s U.S. importer in 1993. In 2006, Colt’s licensees in Canada and several other countries were allowed to start producing the pistol for sale to those customers.
The US importers of Norinco 1911s claim they are cheaper than the Colt because they have only 5 parts instead of 6, but there’s no proof of that claim. It may be true for the cheap version sold by the original manufacturers, but not for the more expensive imported guns.
Many Spanish firearm manufactures produced pistols derived from Colt 1911, such as the STAR Model B, the ASTRA 1911PL, and the Llama Model IX, to name just a few.
There’s another interesting thing about these handguns. The Colt factory produces a line of pistols in New Mexico called the Armalite Model 1911A1 and this same arm, in Colt M1911A1 form, is manufactured by an Argentine company named Sistema Ballester-Molina.
These pistols are mostly made by Colt, though some of them are made locally by Armscor, a Filipino company that specializes in making 1911-style pistols. The Indonesian Army issues a locally produced version of the Colt M1911A1, chambered in.45 ACP along with the Pindad P1, the locally made Browning Hi-Power as the standard-issue sidearm.
In 1962, Taiwan copied the M1911A1 as the T51 pistol, and it saw limited use in the Army. Now the pistols in service are replaced by locally-made Beretta 92 pistols- the T75 pistol. The Royal Thai Army and Royal Thai Police uses the Type 86, the Thai copy of the M1911 chambered in the.45 ACP round, The Turkish Land Forces uses “MC 1911” Girsan made copy of M
In 2016, Colt began exporting a new production model of the M1911 pistol under the name M1911A1, which is based on the original design. The M1911A1 is intended for the export market and has no military use. The Turkish Navy, however, continues to use Colt pistols in.45 ACP caliber.
Some members of the South Korean Air Force still use this original weapon to this day. In fact, it was used during the Korean War and it’s considered an original weapon.
