As I have not fired this weapon yet I will confine my comments to this weapons Fit,Finish,shipping & handling of this item.
First: This item was delivered in a most timely manner a few days at most. It came well packaged, and carefully packaged no damage what so ever.
Second:The quality of this weapon for all appearances is superior and gives me no reason to think it will not preform as well as it looks.
Third: The fit,finish is very nice it looks every bit of its cost.
Forth: I carried the M1911A1 when I served in the Marine Corps and the weapon feels the same as I carried. The “Heft” is right there it comes up on target just like the original and it fits in a repopulated holster I purchased for it just like the original.
Fifth: And this is just my opinion. You here people complain about shipping & handling costs. Quit complaining pay the price to have a fine piece shipped to you and go out and have some fun shooting this very high quality weapon.
ProsA high quality item
ConsAs I have not fired it yet I cannot honestly comment on that. But I stand by the review I gave it.
Best UsesJust having fun

A very nice pellet shooter indeed.
This is a very high quality, German made, CO2 pellet pistol, as is reflected by the price. Has nice, rubberized grips and is almost all metal in construction.
ProsHas a very nice feel in hand and shoots pellets very accurately and hard.
ConsThe CO2 installation system takes a little getting used to.

Colt 1911 A1 1.77 cal Pellet Pistol. Great Gun
It's a great gun with a excellent single action trigger. I've not had a chance to test the accuracy of this pistol, but I have done some plinking with it. It gets good mileage out of a Co2 cylinder and has a easy Co2 cylinder loading system.
ProsNothing much more to say except I like almost every thing about this Pistol.
ConsThe only thing I find negative about this pistol is the sights. I would like to see a three dot system used, but that is just me. I use acrylic paint to create contrast between the front and rear sights. I paint the front sight orange and the rear sight White. This works quite well for me.

Really like look and feel of pistol, unfortunately I had to return it.
Pistol looks and feels like a quality airgun. I had to return it and am awaiting a hopeful replacement. When it shot it was great, Friends where impressed with the realism. Rating would be 5 stars if the pistol wasn't defective. My 75th Ranger Son was impressed with the pistol, wish it didn't have defect with magazine rotating and lining up. Customer Service excellent to this point quickly gave Me all info to send pistol back including shipping label.
ProsSeems to be well made, love the look and feel, a lot of fun when it shot. 5 stars if not for defect
Bought this pistol as a refurb.. The gun arrived in a cardboard box with two magazines and a users manual. No hard case. I installed a CO2 cartridge and a loaded magazine and fired one shot, single action, at an 8" target at 10 yards. The pellet struck with good force touching the bullseye. I cocked the hammer and fired another round, single action, only to be rewarded with a weak "pffft" and the pellet did not even leave the magazine. I then shot approximately 20 more rounds, double action, with no problem and reasonably accurate results. Then the pistol failed to launch the pellet from the magazine in either single action or double action. I tried 4 different styles/brands of pellets, 5 different magazines and changed CO2 cylinders 3 times just to ensure it was, in fact, a problem with the pistol. The pistol will not function in either single or double action. I visited some other airgun retail sites and read the reviews on this pistol. I found that this is not an isolated problem with this pistol and that the magazine fails to index properly to line the pellet up with the barrel. This problem occurred most frequently in single action but, like mine, also failed to launch the pellet in either single or double action for other owners. One purchaser returned the piece to Umarex only to get it back in the same non-operational condition. I have filled out a "Defective" return ticket on-line for Air Gun Depot to exchange this defective gun for a Crosman 2300T. I have read many good reviews on the 2300T. It is reliable, accurate and it can be easily worked on, modified and upgraded by the owner. Additionally there are many You-Tube videos detailing how to work on the piece.
ProsRealistic look and feel. Reasonably accurate but I could not get the pistol to fire enough pellets to fully accustom myself to the trigger and sights.
ConsBased upon all the reviews I have read and my own experience, quality control at Umarex for this pistol is non-existent. I'm sure the reason this pistol was sold as a refurbished piece is due to the same problems I experienced and is inherently faulty and beyond repair. This pistol was defective from the first shot and absolutely useless after approximately 20 more shots. I STRONGLY advise against purchasing this piece either new or refurbished for the reasons previously described.

Bought this as a refurb. great price, you cant go wrong with AGD's refurbs. I have bought several and there all in super condition! Its been too cold to shoot here but I put one co2 canister thru the pistol to check it out and I like it alot, very nice trigger good build quality, once you get use to holding in that grip safety its a blast! I also have a Beretta 92 FS and they use the same clips! Very happy with this pistol!!!
ProsNice trigger, good build quality, accurate!

Purchased this as a refurb. Pistol looks new. Grip safety is a bit sticky, but I think it will smooth out. Shoots well if I do my part. Buy extra mag cylinders.
ProsWell built. Should last a life time.
ConsGrip safety sticky. Could be particular to my gun.

I ordered the refurbished model and couldn't find anything that would suggest it wasn't a new pistol. The trigger is incredibly smooth in double action, and breaks cleanly in single action. Buy more clips when you are ordering one to take advantage of the free shipping.
ProsWell made. Should last a lifetime.
ConsConsidering it is a pellet pistol, it would have been nice if it had adjustable sights. UMarex make it with adjustable sights and call it a Gold Cup!!

Colt makes the best!
I actually owned this model previously but was taken from me so I ordered another cause I liked it so well. It is truly so hard to tell the difference from the actual 1911 A1. Thank you to Airgun Depot for an excellent price for such a quality unit.

I've had excellent luck with buying refurbished pistols from AD, and the Colt 1911 is no exception. Other than shooting high, which can be remedied by altering the base of the rear sight and shimming it, the function and accuracy (after modding the rear sight) are spot on. Mine arrived in a small box that's suitable for storage, and since only one magazine is included, you'll want to consider buying extras. A steal for the price.

Great gun and quality construction "Accurate!!"
This is one of my all time favorites!! I did some custom finish work with the frame and the sights. This gun is very accurate and has a fantastic single action trigger. double action is ok but single is light and amazing. During the summer I was getting around 400 FPS with a RWS 6.9 grain hollow point pellet. Purchase pleanty of spare magazines!!
ProsGerman made, great weight and a fantastic trigger pull (Single Action)

This is one of my favorites. I've found this gun to be very accurate and enjoyable to shoot. Everything operates smoothly and it's simply a joy to handle and shoot. I also own the Umarex Walther CP88 competition version which is nice but I find this Umarex Colt 1911 to be more accurate, much nicer grips, easy to use and smooth operating slide release and safety. If I had to choose between the two, this would be my pick.
ProsAccuracy is great. Quality construction and feel. Smooth operation.
ConsNone I can think of, unless price is an issue, but you get what you pay for and I believe this one is worth every penny.

I've had mine about a month now and i love it! Looks and feels real, and the Co2 use is incredible, i get through all 8 of my rotary clips two and a half times (eight shots a piece) before i need another cartridge. I've already put about 500 of the gamo match diablo pellets through it and it almost feel like its getting more accurate (even though I know it's just me). it would be cool if you could rack a slide on it and it comes in a matte black finish not the gloss in the picture, but these are small things when compared to how great and lifelike this air gun is.
Prosaccurate, good weight, looks like its should, phenomenal Co2 use,
Consnothing, its great as is

Very accurate and reliable pistol. It's a pretty quiet gun so it won't disturb any neighbors. Not too CO2 is used, I can easily get 80-120 shots out of each cartridge. The weight and feel of it is very similar to a real Colt.

177 COLT 1911
A BIT PERSNICKY AT THA START NEEDS LUBERCATION- DECENT ACCURACY FOR THE SIGHTS- ALSO PURCHASED ADDIL MAGS- GENERALY
PLEASED BUT DOUBLE ACTION DEFEATS 1911 TRAINING- NEEDS TO CYCLE THE HAMMER TO SINGLE ACTION-GOOD PRATICE FOR DOUBLE ACTION AUTOS
November 23, 2009
This is defiantly a nice pistol for the money if you're looking for realism and accuracy it has a 5 inch threaded barrel and looks and feels like the real thing... i bought mine over a year ago and the only thing i wish i would have bought for it were extra mags/clips but all in all a nice pistol, the only gripe i have is that its trigger pull is a bit heavier than an actual 1911... but in single action accuracy and trigger pull are outstanding with a fresh CO2 cartridge, if this review helped for you 1911 lovers out there email me for more details on it @ email@example.com

Feels like the real deal
Great quality gun. Actions are smooth and reliable. Feels like the real deal in your hand (except no kick...if you want kick, better to get the Beeman P1). Power is lacking too (P1 is much more powerful). Fun to shoot a few magazines. I have not found it to be too accurate. Best part about the gun is the feel and high quality of the craftsmanship.

when the pistol arrived i was impressed. it shipped in a regular pistol case and when i opened it it looks just like a real 45. after shooting it a bit, it's accuracy is great. i just wish it had more power. after sighting it in i was shooting at a asprin bottle from several distances,5,10,15 and 20 feet away. the accuracy was the same but the under powered shots sent some of the pellets coming back at me. the gamo pba pellets work better(a little bit more power). last, it's hard to tell how much gas is left in the cartridge, some shots are so slow you can see the pellet going down range. still it's a very cool gun and worth getting one.
