It has a very realistic blowback and operation.
The trigger is also very nice and it is an accurate plinking pistol.
A lot of my life, and this gun is about as real as can get.
The realistic look and feel is amazing. Warning: don't have this laying around in your car and don't present this "BB" pistol in public. It will be mistaken as a real firearm. With that said, I am very pleased to own this BB pistol. If you are a collector of blow back air guns, this should be part of your collection.
It's weighted like the real deal, and the blowback effect, while not remotely the recoil you'll get from a 45 ACP, is just enough to make you have to reacquire sight picture after firing. Feels about like shooting a .22, actually. As far as accuracy goes, it's a little inconsistent, but I was able to put zinc BB's on an 8-inch target at 30 yds pretty reliably. It helps that you can see the little buggers fly and immediately adjust. The sights aren't fancy, but then again, neither are most stock blades on 1911's. They are, however, usable in good lighting conditions.
All in all, it's a neat little gun, and probably even useful for practice, up to a point. It does fit in a standard 1911 Blackhawk Serpa holster, so using it for draw & fire drills might not be a bad idea.
Put 18 bb's in the clip, and it wouldn't reach the final click. Removed 1 bb, and it went right in.
I took it outside and shot it a few times, and all I can say is "WOW!"
It's pretty loud, and has an amazing kick. Hard to believe it's only 320 fps.
The Tanfoglio Witness 1911 is a "must have" pistol in my opinion.
I like the blowback action shooting and its right on the target. Takes down just like the real 1911 A1 and easy to reassemble.
The Pistol feels balanced and I love the weight of it. The grip safety and thumb safety are a plus to this Pistol, just like the real one.
The sights are just like the real one and I find it easy to get a sight picture of the target. I use Pellgun oil on head of the CO2 Cartridge
which I ordered from AirGun Depot and it functions mighty good for me.
Great Pistol , Great price and not least Great Service from Airgun Depot !
NOTE: This is not the quality of a Kimber or Wilson Combat, but for a mere $110 bucks, this is a fantastic gun.
This is the gun for you if you want something that is about as close to a real 1911 as you can get without actually buying a real one. The slide, the grip, the weight and everything except the "bang" are pretty much the same as the real thing. It is an incredibly cool looking, and well-built replica. Even the field-stripping is similar.
Speaking of field stripping, you do need to field strip it and carefully oil everything with a high-quality gun oil like RemOil. For all intensive purposes this is a real gun and so it needs to be maintained like one. There is a LOT of metal-to-metal contact with that slide jamming back and forth with every shot. Some of the internal parts are painted and the paint starts to come off almost immediately. After oiling it, the action was noticeably smoother than when it arrived, so the factory oiling isn't sufficient.
For just over $100, it is a lot of gun for the money.
I'm a 1911 guy with custom centerfires all .45. This pistol has the correct size and weight of the real thing as previously mentioned. It also has all working controls. Functioning slide stop and hammer. Safety and grip. An added plus is the fact that the magazine is standard size and my blue weighted dummy mags I use for training, will
also fit this gun to facilitate mag change drills. If that's a concern, no extra BB magazine required. It will also take a stock or aftremarket mag such as Wilson or Tripp. The trigger is decent, but as I said I'm used to customs. I'd guess 4# but I am too lazy to get my digital gauge out. Little sloppy but not gritty and after all it's a $130 gun. It does fit a 1911 holster. If you want to break in a new shooter this pistol would serve you well. Blowback is nice for that. Heck, you can use a bullet trap and shoot in your backyard in your pajamas if you like and not freak out the neighbors. It is safer and quieter than a .22 and loads less expensive.
In terms of build and durability this gun is fantastic. The finish is great, the weight is spot on, and the feel and function are fantastic. In fact, I have already ordered another as I choose to modify this one in my shop to a highly polished finish which I will show in the last picture. I wet/dry sanded the entire gun by hand (400/600/800/1000/1500) and then used automotive rim polish to give it a mirrored steel look).
I will recommend this gun to friends, and will continue to see what Cybergun/KWC brings out next. I couldn't be more then happy with it.
I will not bore you with the details of this airgun. I will only say you will not be disappointed with it. I was very surprised at how real it felt in my hand, and the kick from the slide moving back and forth when it was fired left me feeling I was firing the real thing again. The only thing that was missing was the loud report you get from the real one. I felt like I was firing one with a silencer on it. The one thing I did not like about this airgun was loading it. The spring you have to pull down is very stiff and difficult to hold on to as there is only a small piece of metal sticking out to pull it down with. Over all I was well pleased though, and feel you will be to.
plus, the grips can be swapped out with grips from a real 1911.
it has a great feel, full sized drop out magazine, and good blowback.
the grip safety works, and its single action like a real 1911.
its also the only 1911 bb gun to have a trigger that is true to the original.
from 20 feet away it hit the target with a 2 inch spread. very accurate.
i dont want my review to sound like an advertisement for the gun, but this gun really is perfect.
if this is the only bb gun you buy, youll be satisfied with it.

Answer: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.
