Looks nice, feels like the real thing. Unfortunately, it was not that great. The first round of BBs worked well and I was impressed with the blowback action. Second load was were the problems started. The BBs were misfiring and appeared to be getting stuck in the barrel. Then suddenly all the air was released. I figured give it another try so I went to load a second Co2 cylinder. As I was tightening it all the air blew out. It was a shame as I really liked the gun. But just to have it as a display piece was not worth the price.

Pros
Heavy Looks real

Cons
Releases air suddenly Misfires BBs get stuck in gun

I love, LOVE this gun, it's super realistic, fully metal so the sounds like cocking the gun is just like a real one, and the fact that the clip is big like how it is, makes it even better, and the clip slides out nicely. The shooting is pretty accurate,too!! 11/10 would recommend.

Pros
All metal Super realistic Very fun Accurate Blowback is powerful It came with steel BB's You can take it apart like a real gun

Cons
None

RIP! I loved this gun and shot it every day. Reliable-did not jam- ever. Last week a wrinkle developed-part of the breech contained in the slide advanced beyond its normal position and had to be forced back into position-never good. It did not want to remain there-something must have sheared off-I can't tell. Worked off and on for a couple of days. Yesterday it happened again and I field stripped it-a small spring (tiny) at rear of the slide came loose and was hanging out of its appendage-a spring that I have no idea as to its function. Put it back together today sans spring and shot a couple of mags until it died-would not cycle, it's dead-so it was in operation from about February 23 until April 9. Ordered another one yesterday. I really babied this replica-cleaned it every time I shot it and that was daily. Hey-it is a BB gun made out of pot metal-not a real Colt. I don't like it, but I get it. If the next one breaks I am done with the Tanfoglio Witness. At least I salvaged the magazine which costs $42-the gun goes for $99. The gun is now a paperweight. Too bad.

Pros
Worked well until it did not work anymore. Accurate. I only fired it in strings of 8 rounds per the original. It shoots hard-the recoil is like a Colt .38 Super! When it worked it was great-but it is dead now so it is a piece of junk.

Cons
Only lasted for less than two months which sucks. The white lettering on both sides of the slide is maddening. Why? Finally, the GUN ONLY LASTED FOR LESS THAN TWO MONTHS BEFORE IT SELF DESTRUCTED-just so we are clear on why the one star rating.

I like the way this gun feels, I showed it to a friend and he said "A cop will shoot you if you're holding this"! How's that for authenticity!

Pros
the feel, the blowback

Cons
uses a lot of Co2

THIS IS A FUN GUN WITH HEAVY BLOWBACK. IT FEELS ALMOST LIKE SHOOTING A .45. I LOVE THE FEEL AND LOOK AND WORKS PERFECTLY. YOUR FPS WILL BE LOWER THAN A PISTOL WITHOUT BLOWBACK, BUT I WILL GIVE FPS UP ANY DAY FOR A REAL GUN FEEL. GET THIS, YOU WANT BE DISAPPOINTED!

I'm a 77 year-old Navy veteran of the Underwater Demolition Teams, and a gun guy, with eight grandchildren ranging from 25 yrs. to 5 months. I got this gun to aid with teaching the 6 - 15 yr olds to shoot. The Tanfoglio's Witness 1911 is the perfect teaching aid. The safeties, blow back slide, weight and feel are very realistic. Because it doesn't go "bang" and shoot real bullets we can practice in the back yard or even in the cellar, If I can get it past their mothers. The 25 yr.old is a local policeman.

What else can be said about this bb pistol? It has the looks, feel, and action of the real steel version. So satisfying to rack the slide on this beauty. A great addition to anyone's collection.

Pros
Solid, high quality, and super realistic.

Cons
Can't think of any for this one!

what can I say , if you are a fan of the 1911 single action semi auto pistol. than this is one air gun for you. The feel and weight are very similar to a real 1911. This pistol has the same grip safety as the original and slide lock safety as the original you can even remove the barrel bushing. the blowback is decent enough that you get the feeling that you are shooting a real pistol like a 22 cal. pistol the slide locks back after the last round, after inserting a fresh magazine you can release the slide with your thumb just like with a real one. I like this gun I shot it at 21 ft. was getting 2 to 3 inch groupings in paper and putting holes in plastic bottles. this is a fun gun to shoot ,and a nice added piece to your air gun collection. be nice if it came with wooden grips

Pros
very realistic looking and safety features good feel

Cons
not enough shoots per cartridge, no wooden grips

Scott from USA

Airgun Depot lists this with having hop-up. Manual doesn't mention that. Does it or not have adjustable hop-up?

asked David

The clam is inaccurate, hop-up is an Airsoft term for high operation power up.

Tony from USA

No it does not. I think that is for the airsoft verson of this gun.

Mark

The Tanfoglio Witness "steel bb" pistol does not have "hop up", however the Airsoft version does. A heavier steel bb would not be affected much, if at all, by putting a spin on it, but the lighter plastic airsoft bb's shoot further with less arc when the hopup spin is applied. Other terms for "hop up" are "spin up" amd "BXAS"

Dennis from USA

My gun was sitting for 2 months after working great. Tried to load c02 into the magazine and it sprays right out of the top hole in the magazine. no idea what to do. tried unscrewing and re tightening the valve to no avail. heard something about an o ring inside being loose and not in right. didn't see one though and if there is one how to get it out? Thanks

asked Nicholas from USA

asked Justin

asked Russ Warnstedt

asked mahdi

Mahdi, Please contact our International Shipping Department at [email protected] They can answer any questions you might have. Sincerely, The Airgun Depot Customer Care Team

Scott from USA

does this gun look realistic up close like could you tell it was a bb gun?

asked Yvonnie

Gun looks very realistic weight and size are very close.

Oleksiy from USA

It is realistic. On the right hand of the slide (pistol pointed away from you) it does say .177 caliber. The pictures here on the site are exemplary. This pistol disassembles in the same order and to the same part groups as a real 1911. The barrel at first glance looks like a .45 caliber rifling, with the BB barrel recessed about 3/8". If you don't want the neighbors calling law enforcement then don't carry this around outside. It's intended to be realistic in appearance, and is a very nice air pistol. I stripped the factory grease and oil, used real gun oil and the blow-back performance was improved even thought it was acceptable as sent from the factory. I also replaced the grips with wood. This gun looks, feels and operates like the real namesake.

Gregg

The Tanfoglio Witness 1911 is a great Air gun and I happened to buy one but it was damaged from wear in tare over time.. So i was wondering if there is a way to get this Air gun earlier then 09-20-13 for you guys?

asked ryder from USA

Ryder, Unfortunately, that is the set date that the manufacturer has given us for restocking. We are unable to get this particular item any earlier than the posted date (ETA 9/20/2013). Please continue to check the websites for any updates. Dates can change. Hopefully that answers your question and sorry for any inconvenience this might have caused you. Sincerely, The Airgun Depot Customer Care Team.

Scott from USA

can you guys e-mail me when you guys get the witneaa 1911 .177 in stock thanks

asked steve

Steve, This particular BB pistol should be available for order on 8/26/2013. Sincerely, The Airgun Depot Customer Care Team

Scott from USA

Is it accurate enough for tournament use? How does its weight compare to the real USA military piece?

asked JIM

No it isn't, if you want accurate get the Crosman 2240... it's a .22 nail driver. The Crosman 1701T is .177 and it's competition worthy. It is a few ounces lighter because you don't have a magazine full of real bullets. The magazine has the CO2 cartridge and your pellets.

Gregg

Has anyone found any spare parts for this KWC 1911 Blowback pistol? My blowback unit/piston is broken and am looking to replace it. Thanks. JL

asked Jeff

Can you buy extra magazines for this?

asked Charlie

YES Try www.bb-gubs.org They have lots of mags.

matthew from USA

Yes you can although they are a bit hard to find and cost about 30 dollars each. The only place I was able to find the right mags was in the pyramid air website. Also if you are going to order the mag from pyramid air then make sure that you are looking at the steel bb mags because they also sell the mags for the airsoft version of the tanfoglio witness

Luis from USA

its possible ship to spain ?

asked jose

Try checking out at the sight and if there is a restriction you will get a warning before you purchase the product. There are a lot of different regulations for all different countries and they are always changing, so we have set up an automatic warring if there is a product, based on your location, that is forbidden. Shipping price always changes, but you should be able to see the final price before you complete your purchase.

Scott from USA

How are the iron sights/accuracy?

asked Jarod Tobias from USA

Short answer: not bad. Long answer: up to about 25-30 yds, you can reasonably hit what you aim at within reason. It's by no means a tack driver, but I was able to put BB's on an 8-inch target at 30 yds.

Evan from USA

Can this item be easily dismantled?

asked Michael

It field strips like a normal 1911.

ANON

Have you had a good experience with this gun and do you believe that it was built to last?

Is this the same one that is at replica airguns.com

asked jarrett judd

You can read the description and specs on this website and compare it to the other website. https://www.airgundepot.com/tanfoglio-witness-35803.html

Scott from USA

I have a qestion about your policy, do you ship all airguns with an orange tip on the barrel or just airsoft guns? And also how long would it take to ship to missouri?

asked James

It would take 3-4 days to ship to Missouri. Just airsoft guns have the orange tip on them.

Scott from USA

AGD, do yo have any extra magazines for this model?

asked Mike

What type of BBs would you recommend for best accuracy?

asked Greg

My testing proved hands -down- that the Daisy "AVANTI" BB's were the tightest grouping of the 4 brands I tried.

Joel from USA

what is the range on this thing?

asked Glenn

This pistol is most accurate within 20 yards.

Scott from USA

does this gun ship to canada?

asked andrew

Hello, We are able to ship to the Canada, however, there are restrictions on different types of air guns/rifles. Please let us know if you have any further questions. Sincerely, The Airgun Depot Customer Care Team

Steve from USA

Pueden mandarla directamante a Hermosillo Sonora ? sin pasar por la Cd. de Mexico.

asked HORACIO from Mexico

Hello Horacio Benitez Galves, Yes, we should be able to ship directly to Hermosillo, however, it will still need to pass through international customs. Please let us know if you have any further questions. Sincerely, The Airgun Depot Customer Care Team

Steve from USA

Does the gun still shoot after a month of having it? Because I bought a pistol that stopped shooting after the first month.

asked Liam

Yes, I have months of shooting on mine, around a thousand rounds and 20 CO2 cartridges (roughly). No issues. You won't be sorry you bought this.

Gregg

I noticed in a revew that it is single action but in the sites specs it says its simi auto so which is it

asked William from USA

William, The Tanfoglio Witness 1911 Blowback BB Pistol is semi automatic. Sorry about the confusion. Sincerely, The Airgun Depot Customer Care Team

Steve from USA

are the sights good for distance?

asked Kaleb

they aren't adjustable, so not really. its a good gun for training, and its accurate at close range, but if you are looking for extremely accurate target shooter, look elsewhere.
