Co2 leak
November 12, 2019
I have to agree with another reviewer. Blowback kick WAS underestimated, but what did ruin the experience was the leak (straight out of box). All in all she is a beautiful gun and well worth the money, but the co2 leak is annoying.
ProsBlowback is great. Great sights. Working safeties. Gun fits like a glove. Just beautiful.
ConsCO2 leak.
Best UsesPlinking.

Co2 leak
May 24, 2019
Co2 leaks. Nice pistol. The blowback action is the best Ive experienced, so far. Great pistol overall the only problem is the CO2 leak which makes it almost unshootable?

Merchant Response:We sincerely apologize for the problem you're having with the magazine. A customer service rep will reach out to you via email about this.
ProsBlowback kick was uderestimated
ConsBad magazines. You have to align co2 perfectly to fit the mag, but it wouldnt matter anyway because of the co2 leak. Air comes straight out from top of magazine.

I like the "real feel" of the blowback feature but it takes some getting used to. Also, I don't know if it needs some break in time but the slide locks open on about half the shots and it should only do that with the last bb. Overall, I like it

An excellent practice and training aid
November 20, 2018
I practice and train very frequently. This has the look, feel, and controls of my preferred carry platform. Excellent fit and finish, it is dependable and more than accurate enough. BBs and CO2 are much cheaper than ammunition.
Best UsesPractice and training at low cost, indoors, and when firearms won't do.
By Rabbit
Nice gun, poor magazines
November 19, 2018
This is not "Commander" sized, it's full-sized. The magazine is very weak. After 10 CO2 cartridges, the threading on the bottom that holds the Allen screw was completely stripped. I didn't manhandle it; the material is just practically made of tinfoil. I'll have to order more mags. Disappointing weak point in an otherwise good gun.

ProsFunctions well, accurate, nice metal construction, fun to shoot.
ConsWeak magazines
Best Usesplinking

Awesome Blowback!
October 4, 2018
This pistol is very well made and shoots flawlessly. I’m impressed with the attention to detail and similarities with the .45 Colt. Very nice to get to shoot and accessorize a pistol of this quality, and I highly recommend this blowback to all enthusiasts!
ProsComfortable grip, excellent finish, blowback design, chrome barrel, price very reasonable
ConsNice if it came in bundle with extra clip and holster
Best UsesFun plinking, maintainghandgun skills economically

Close but no Combat "Commander"
October 2, 2018
Very close resemblance to the real thing. Almost completely satisfied with this pistol. Expected a lot more due to the Colt licensing.Otherwise satisfied.
ProsNice weight and feel. Rear sight and 3 dot.
ConsWhite lettering a real deterrence from the authenticity. Still trying to find the right bbs that won't jam,tried Daisyand Crossman. Needs to be just 1inch shorter to be a commander. How did that get overlooked by I'm sure alot of eengineering.
By Douglas A.
Excellent value! High quality.
August 21, 2018
Bought this to backyard train for a pistol league and was not disappointed. Very close in weight and handling to my real 1911s. Got a spare magazine and load them with only 8 rounds to simulate the 45 mag capacity and changes. Accuracey is what I would expect from a smoothbore bb gun. Minute of soda can @ 10 yards. The only minor detail I wished were different is the slide lock cannot be released by sligshotting after a new mag is inserted. You must use the lever.
Not a deal breaker by any stretch.
Overall a great value and fun to shoot!
ProsHighly realistic. Very good quality.
Best UsesTraining. Plinking.

I love this pistol
March 30, 2017
I love this pistol the shot count , the action, the feel and the accuracy. By far it is one of my favorites in my collection.
ConsThe safety can't be on unless it's cocked.
February 4, 2017
I have more air guns than I care to mention. Last month I fired over 10000 bbs and pellets. I also shoot Lr and 45 acp. This gun is one of my all time favorite bb guns. I always load up 3 magazines and clean the barrel with a pipe cleaner after the first round of bbs to keep the oil out of the barrel. It is important to get all the manufacturing oil/whatever initially out also. Some times I use a little rubbing alcohol initially. Using three mags allows me to shoot 50 rounds without the co2 getting to cold and losing power. I can get these 1991 bb guns to really shoot tight groups this way. Airgundepot. thank you.

My New Favorite
December 28, 2016
This was my first blowback air gun. It is great. I love the look. It looks almost like an exact replica. I have 9mm and a .45 cal 1911. I have shot about 100 bb's through it. The sights are accurate at about 20yds. I would recommend this to everyone.
ProsGood Price, Great look.
ConsLoading bb's is a little tougher than other airguns I have.

Great Beginner Pistol
October 11, 2015
This is my first BB gun all together. I opted for a pistol just because it seems like a good beginning weapon. This gun is a blast! I love how it's all metal and has the blowback action. Everyone who sees it thinks its real. Very accurate and takes some time to get used to the kick. Kick is real hard like a true pistol. Definitely please with my purchase.
ProsEverything, this is the perfect weapon
ConsDoesn't shoot pellets, just BB's. Not really a downside but just so people know!

Colt Commander on target!
October 5, 2015
I like my Tanfoglio Witness 45 Co2 so much I knew I'd like the Colt Commander, in particular, its white dot sights, skeletonized trigger/hammer, chrome-finish barrel, etc. The plastic clamshell packaging, as others mentioned, is a bummer and this pistol deserves a nice box. However, the pistol was not scratched at all (be careful removing it from the hard plastic clamshell) and functions fine. The magazines from my Tanfoglio fit so I just have to be sure and have plenty of Co2 cartridges around!
ProsNicely finished, chrome-finished barrel, skeletonized hammer/trigger, white dot sights, interchangeable magazines with the Tanfoglio, shoots fairly accurate for a non-rifled BB pistol
ConsClamshell packaging

Colt Commander BB Pistol
September 14, 2015
I have only shot 5 magazines through this Colt Commander but I find the magazine very tidious to load and have had 4 miss fires where the BB was hung in the barrel. Seems that some brands of BBs work better than others.
ProsNice feel, looks like a real Colt 1911 and has good weight balance. The CO2 cartrage is easy to change.
ConsMagazine is tidious to load. Not a hard shooter, won't pen- itrate a spray paint can. I had 4 missfires out of 5 magazines that I shot. I don't like keeping up with a large allen wrinch to change CO2 cartriges with.
By Mike

Very realistic to the Colt Commander. Nice weight. Needs an Allen wrench to tighten the CO2 which it did not come with. Hard to load the BB's. Otherwise a very nice air pistol.
ProsRealistic weight and function
ConsNeeds an Allen wrench to tighten the CO2 which it did not come with. Hard to load the BB's.

August 28, 2015
I love this gun for the way they kept it so accurate to the original. And a great price as well. The chrome barrel is nice also. and it's as accurate as a BB gun can be.
I found I had to turn the wrench, for the CO2, extra after I heard it pierce the cartridge or it might leak. But that was no big deal. Also I didn't leave the CO2 overnight.
I think this procedure helps the seals last longer. And being a refurbished gun makes it much more affordable. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another refurbished gun.

It is such an accurate replication of the original, that stock rosewood grips can be installed with the existing screws and only slight relief for the CO2 tank bumps in the grip! (See attached photo)

I was totally surprised when I got this gun.
Even though it was refurbished. There were no marks, scratches, or blemishes if any kind!
It's like a brand new gun.
Love the feel and weight of this gun. Feels like the real thing.
Realistic blowback. Does not eat a lot of co2 either.
Pretty accurate for a bb gun too!
Great training tool for the youngsters. So they can eventually work their way up to a powder burner.
ProsGreat realism. It's all good!

Only one thing(WOW!!!)
August 13, 2015
This gun is just amazing, i own one sw40f and one swiss arm p92 the two are blowback and pretty crisp cool blowback but here nothing to do with this colt commander.This gun have a very much more kick event more then a glock 18c "airsoft gun "but hard blowback , so at this price you can not be wrong.I have take it reffurbish and must say that he have not one scratch an all is perfect same as a new ,he came very well pack in bubble-wrap all perfect protection .I say this because i have see in other review some complain about that but me all was well done so i have think that i should mention it.For the other things on that gun, all respect the official specifications.
ProsAll metal ,very hard kick,very cool ,amazing "chrome" outher barel
ConsThe only thing i see is the fps . I really think that if this gun can shoot at 425-475 fps. He could be the best blowback 4.5mm bb guns ever!!! But im dreaming.._.

As exact a replica of a 1911 as you're ever gonna find
May 9, 2015
Since going to the range every day just isn't practical and would be way too expensive I decided to purchase air gun replicas of my favorite "real" firearms. I own a Kimber Pro Carry 9MM that I'm madly in love with and this Colt Commander is only slightly longer as it's not actually commander size. But it looks, feels and functions exactly like a real 1911. Single action only, nice, light trigger pull, and the slide locks open after the last round is fired. The first time I fired it I was very pleasantly surprised by the amount of recoil. Not exactly like a 9mm or .45, but close to my Walther P22. I must warn you- the amount of recoil was unexpected but after the first or second magazine you'll be able to get some nice, tight groups. Excellent way to stay proficient with your shooting skills while not emptying your bank account. Statistically, the vast majority of civilian self defense shootings, especially home invasions, happen within 10 feet. I have a pretty cool shooting range setup in my man cave with a pellet/bb trap that stands as high as a human being. The targets sit at eye level for me, and I have it ranged at 12,15 and 25 feet. At 15 feet I am able to put all 18 rounds through the same ragged hole, so accuracy of the pistol is very impressive for a smooth bore gun. If I could post a video of me putting rounds on target I would.
All in all, this is a very fine air pistol and I would highly recommend it, especially for the price. One more recommendation I would make is to buy a spare mag so you can practice mag changes each time you shoot. You just can't go wrong with this pistol!
ProsAll metal Functions exactly like a real 1911 Surprisingly realistic recoil Excellent accuracy for a smooth bore
ConsNot actually commander size

the gun shoots like a pro and is very customizable check out my pics!
February 21, 2015
the gun shoots incredible I have yet to have any problem with it whatsoever and I've owned it for over 6 months. Things I added to the pistol: hitman compensator. Ace of Spades pistol grip. Gold inlay bushings and grip screws. Customizing is very easy sometimes the compensators if they are for real guns they need to be filed down on the inside so the recessed BB gun barrel can fit in and slide thruso that the blowback will work and your gun wont break.I have attached pictures please take a look.!.

My favorite 1911 CO2 BB pistol, and an amazing deal refurbished from Airgun Depot!
November 8, 2014
This pistol made by Umarex and Colt branded is a must have for realistic shooting experience for 1911 fans. It has quality metal construction and balk finish, great sights (3 white dots), quite accurate, and a powerful blowback. I paid $99 for my first one a few weeks back, and had to buy another when I saw the refurbished available. It was delivered and shoots like new. Not surprised the returns went quickly.
ProsGreat price on a great CO2 BB pistol! Fast ship and great service.
ConsUnfortunately Umarex does not package refurbished pistols well, threw it in cardboard box along with Allen wrench and no bubble wrap, resulting in big scratch on slide. I called suggested AD and they explained Umarex ships all refurbished gins this way, but did give me a credit adjustment. That's why I love Airgun Depot: great products, prices and service!

Superb CO2 Pistol!
September 11, 2014
I purchased this gun for a short film prop with the intention of probably never using it again afterwards. I was wrong. This BB gun feels great in your hands, and is probably the closest thing you can get to the real 1911. The blowback action is amazing, it kicks pretty hard due to the heavy metal slide. This gun is licensed by Colt, which further adds to the realism of the gun. It's powered by 12g CO2 cartridges and you get 18rds per magazine. The magazine is drop-free, which means it won't fall when you press the mag release. The white dot sights look great and I prefer it over some of the other style of sights I see on similar BB pistols. The barrel is chrome which adds a cool accent to the gun. The gun comes with the 1911 itself, a magazine, manual, and a tool for installing the CO2 cartridge.

You won't be hunting moose with this gun, but it does considerable damage to soda cans and thin glass bottles. Accuracy is pretty good, the grouping was nice and small. It's great for plinking(shooting at random objects) and a good tool for maintaining firearm effeciency. If you want to teach, say, your daughter to shoot a gun but she's a little terrified of the real thing, the Colt Commander CO2 pistol is perfect for that. Will it kill anyone? No. Will it hurt? Yes, of course. Remember, this is a BB gun and although it was made for fun, I've seen BB guns that pierce skin. It's not a toy so always keep safety your number one priority.

Overall, the gun is super great, especially for the price. I own several BB pistols and rifles, as well as airsoft guns and a few real steel guns and this one is definitely one of my favorite. Get one for yourself and see how great this gun performs!
Pros- Full metal, doesn't feel like a toy - Feels solid in your hands - Great blowback action, kicks pretty hard - 18-round magazine, I've owned a few other BB pistols with only 8-10 rounds - Realistic, the slide moves back and forth and locks back when you're out of rounds, just like the real thing - Fully licensed
Cons- Comes in a plastic shell; it didn't really matter to me I was going to throw it out anyways - Drop-free magazine. Others may not consider this a "con" but I prefer the magazine to just drop when I press on the mag release - The warning/safety text on the right side of the gun looks ugly, but then again it's for safety, can't complain too much

I'm loss for words what a great gun to shoot right out of the package in the specs it says no to blow back .believe me this gun has blow back first time you fire the gun you will find this will take a while to get good groupings boy its fun to shoot about thirty years ago i did own the beast and this is as close as it gets.the weight and feel it cant get any better well put together .get one you cant go wrong .

This is my 6th blow back but the first shot literally startled me.Tremendous blow back action really packs a punch. For those of you who like a kick THIS GUNS FOR YOU. Great balance, weight and finish. All metal where metal counts TRIGGER, TRIGGER GUARD, CLIP, PIERCING SCREW, etc.... Super tight slide over real chrome barrel housing. Nicest trigger I own.
ConsBBs HARD TO LOAD but worth the effort, NON ADJUSTABLE REAR SIGHT but so what.

It's really not a Commander
May 2, 2014
Pleasantly surprised, I have to admit I buy a lot of "Colt" branded products, being from the NE. Gun functions very close to an actual 1911, with blowback after each round, slidestop engages on last round and keeps slide open, rear sight is drift adjustable. Love the removable magazine with CO2 cartridge inside. If the seal around the CO2 fails, you can buy a new magazine instead of a new gun.

This is really a full size 1911 and not a Commander model. It is well made by the good Chinese (Taiwan)!
ProsRemovable Magazine Solidly built White dot sights Grip safety Hammer safety
ConsLoading BB's into the magazine is a lot of work. I guess I need to buy more magazines!
