z Limited Edition Licensed Wilson Combat Full Metal 1911 Gas Blowback Airsoft Pistol.
by Nathan S. Date Added: April 4, 2009
This Wilson Combat CQB Elite is a very nice addition to any airsoft collection. I have just recently purchased one and am very pleased with it. Its got a nice weight and balance in your hand. As far as I can tell, it will work well in CQB situations and nicely as a sidearm for anything else, but I have not tried it myself yet ( I mean, there really isnt much to say, its a GBB pistol and anything shortrange during CQB will be accurately hit).

There are only a couple problems I can see in it, one being that there are a couple more side flying shots rather than straight than I'd like; may be faulty BBs if anything I guess. This wouldnt be so much a problem if I had more available shots in each mag (since I've upgraded my recoil spring, Im really only getting around 8 - 12 shots out of a fully gased mag - works out for me since I like realism, but may not work for others).

Now, the other problem I've had with this gun is not so much the gun itself, but rather something said in the description. I had purchased a Matrix Marui / WE Hi-capa threaded barrel in the hopes of adding a silencer to my gun, just like this page recommended; however, I quickly realized after purchasing it that the diameter of the threaded barrel was much to wide for it to work at all. The barrel went in, but the barrel bushing could not fit around it (in fact, the outside diameter of the bushing was the same as the barrel). The only good thing that came out of this was that I was able to unscrew the threaded part of the barrel and tighten it onto my original barrel - this would've been nice to know before I spent 30 bucks on the barrel. The next problem that followed was that since the thread itself was a -neg thread but the thread to hold onto the barrel was a +pos, that meant when you try to tighten the silencer on, it would just loosen the threaded part for the inside of the barrel, this gets pretty annoying when you really want to get a silencer on. I recommend trying to find only a +pos thread to screw onto your original outer barrel.

All in all, this gun is great. The only major problem I had was getting a threaded barrel for it.

Full metal, and nice balanced feel
Full wilson combat engravings, even on handgrips
After installing upgraded recoil spring, the recoil becomes much greater, but the original spring was awesome already
FPS - somewhere around 320 - 340/350 with .20s

Had a could side flyers, but those coulda been the BBs
Matrix Marui / WE Hi-capa threaded barrel suggested in description doesnt actually work; however, the thread itself can be unscrewed and applied to your original outer barrel, but the -neg on +pos thread was not well thought out in my opinion.

I hope this review helps anyone thinking about purchasing the Wilson Combat CQB Elite
