The history of the Colt Govt M1911 Pistol began in early 1900s, when famous designer John M. Browning began to develop semi-automatic pistols for Colt Company. In 1906-1907 the U.S. Army announced trials to replace its service revolvers with a new, semi-automatic pistol. The Army required the new pistol to have the caliber of .45 inch, so Browning designed its own cartridge that fired a 230-grain (14.9 gram) bullet, and then, designed the new pistol around it. In 1911, the new pistol and its cartridge were adopted for U.S. military service as the M1911. The improved design was adopted by the US Military as the M1911A1 pistol, and served with distinction until the mid-1980s.
KWA has replicated this iconic service pistol in an airsoft version as the KWA M1911A1. True to the real firearm counterpart, the KWA M1911A1 features the same functions as the real M1911A1. The frame of the lower receiver is composed of steel and the slide is made of aluminum alloy. The KWA M1911A1 also features a working thumb safety and grip safety. Like the real M1911A1, the KWA M1911A1 has fixed irons sights.

(Write a review) "Very realistic M1911A1 pistol. Heavy weight, very accurate. I installed a tight bore 6.01 Angel barrel and get 2" groupings from 30 feet away. Highly recommended for the WWII airsofter or reenactor. Would buy this gun again hands down no problem. Use an exacto knife to cut off the orange tip. Do not attempt to pull the tip off with plyers or you will damage the rest of the barrel. "Wayne N. 16 December 2016
Got this amazing Airsoft pistol last week. As I collect WWII Airsoft guns this one was well worth picking up.
Very sturdy construction and heavy weight feel. The orange barrel tip is a detractor but can be removed using a razor type box cutter knife. Do not use plyers to try and pull off the tip as you will damage the outer barrel itself.
Test fired 2 mags indoors with .25 bb's and this gun is very accurate with 2" groupings from 25' away.
Would buy again ! "I wanted a classic looking 1911. I went with this given KWA reputation on a tight/solid build. I got this. Was happy that it was all black. The trades are minimal and indented and blend so well itâ€™s hardly noticeable. The outer barrel is plastic and protrudes. I would recommend (if you want to remove it to get the flush real 1911 look) so not use acetone or nail polish remover as it changes the coloring of the barrel and eats away at the material almost immediately. What you can do. Take it out. And just hold it like a pencil and rub it on sandpaper in a circle for a little bit. The plastic is pretty cheap so it comes off like an eraser. I was surprised how quick it was to wear off 1/4 inch with minimal effort. So be careful. Make it even. Clean it up. And touch up with a tiny bit of basic acrylic paint. And like that it looks more like the classic 1911.
Build. It feels tightly put together. NO WOBBLE tight mag fit. But everything worked. Really like the no wobble no rattle as I am pretty OCD. Looks good. BUT I will say the slide feels cheap. Doesnâ€™t click clack nearly as nice or loud as many other 1911s Iâ€™ve handled. I cleaned and lubed it but still feels a little weak and sloshy. Not a huge con. But I was mildly disappointed in that. Also the hammer creates wear on the beaver tail quickly. It can be touched up if desired. Other not so great thing is the slide release with chip away at the slide notch and shows wear quickly. Just adding to the slide feels kinda cheap sadly. Just donâ€™t do that too much and it should be fine.
I was able to put wood grips on it for a better look but you need to drill out from the underside of the grips about 3mm total depth. The bushing from the handle stick out a little more than real steel. Still not a tough adjustment to fit real grips on it. The ones it comes with are actually decent though and have weighted panels in them. But the wood looks way better.
Mags look good. Can hold 20 shots. You can get probably 20 shots but thatâ€™s about it. I may be bad at filling gas mags but Iâ€™ve done it many times and the most I can get is 1 solid mag. But itâ€™s a thin mag and canâ€™t hold too much so I get it.
Shooting. Itâ€™s. Ok. I expected better. Doesnâ€™t shoot that hard. Not very loud. Ok in accuracies. Overall though with such a well fit build and look and decent gas mags itâ€™s a good pistol. Better than the WE 1911. Though the WE metal actually looked and felt better to my surprise. But the WE build is shakey. Bad mags. And way less accurate and powerful.
Iâ€™d give it a 3.5/5. With standouts being for the right build. Nice look and feel and easily adjustable outer barrel (though the con being itâ€™s plastic and NO ATTACHMENTS for threaded barrel) but the outer barrel doesnâ€™t show wear so itâ€™ll stay looking better (no scratching since plastic color will always be the blackâ€”-though I painted mine a dark gray and looks sweet and hasnâ€™t scratches off at all)
My cons are the weak slide metal. Not as click clacky. Seemingly modest power and accuracy
I still really like it. But going into battle Iâ€™d prefer a CO2 gun or a better gas gun- the KWA M9 out performs in shooting. Read More Reviews Write a Review
