Alot of folks have had jamming and double feeding issue's, and so did I, but I found that by shortening the clip spring 2 inches, the jamming and double feeding totally stops, however, you lose the auto lockback when the last bb is fired, but you can easily run 18 bb's with absolutely no problems then.
With this new 1911 im trying something new. The real 1911 forearm's only holds 7 rounds, so thats what im loading now, but I am doing it for the sake of the plastic feeder tube at the top of the clip. I've discovered that with 18 bb's in the clip, the spring tension is too much for the feeder tube, and after a while it will begin jamming and double feeding. At that point, if you shorten the spring 2 inches, the pistol will operate perfectly, just no auto lockback.
Im hoping that by only loading 7 bb's at a time, the feeder tube will last indefinently without the earlier mentioned problems.
These 1911 replica's are totally awesom in detail, they shoot accurately, and they kick like a 22. I absolutely love both of these KWC made 1911 replica's.
I doubt you can find a pistol thats more fun to own and shoot, and thats why I have two of them now. I give them 5 stars.
If the real 1911's held 7 rounds, then why put all that extra stress on the feeder tube anyway. Load 7 and enjoy the auto lockback more often.
After hours and clips of shooting my Witness 1911, and this is the same gun really, I have found no other quirks or issues.
There is one more thing you should know, and that is that blowback pistols use more Co2 then non blowbacks. The awesome kick comes with a price, but it's worth it. Im averaging about 40 hard shots per Co2 with these two 1911 blowback pistols. Just buy one, you won't regret it, I promise. Dennis
Sweet blow back actions
Is the exact same gun as the Tanfoglio, Colt and Remington, can not tell the difference.
Had to return the original because of a safety issue
All in all great fun gun
Been getting "cycling"s issues lately after around 200 rounds of BB's. I would get a double feed of BB's then the slide will get stuck in the "half" rear position and gun won't shoot and will have to clear which can be easy at sometimes but annoying some other times.
Thinking of sending it back but I have read other reviews online that this gun has that flaw.. I wish I read that part when I was researching this gun...
The only thing I had problems with were bbs getting stuck between the upper inner slide and the nozzle,.
After that was straightened out .I noticed how fast the finish on the breech, the mag and the slide release latch wore down to the metal of the gun .
however this happens with other blow backs that I own as well, so no big deal.
I have to completely block out the center right of the target to get to hit anywhere inside the rings , again that is acceptable to me as the gun has the traditional 1911 fixed sights with no white dots. so it is a little tricky.
I didn't purchase this for target shooting anyway. and for the price that you will only get at airgun depot, I have to say buy it it is a very nice gun and I would recommend this to any one looking for a nice realistic 1911 plinker.
