KJWorks KP-11 Hi-Capa 1911 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol Field Test ReviewPHOTO2

In this Field Test Shooting video I test out the KJWorks KP-11 Hi-Capa 1911 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol to determine what the real work velocity is and also how well to performs in term of accuracy. To test velocity I use a my Chrony Chronograph and do my best to get 5 good readings which I then average out. I always use a brand new 12 gram CO2 cartridge and generally use .20 gram plastic Airsoft BB's for my entire Field Testing. To test accuracy I set myself up 30 feet back using a semi rested position, to do this I place a sand bag to rest my hand and gun on and then stand securely in the back while I place 10 rounds on a paper target. There is obviously some humane factor involved but I can usually get a good idea on how accurate a given gun is.

During the Velocity or Feet Per Second Chronograph I did manage to get 5 good readings, not all in a row but all within the first 10 or so shots. The KJWorks KP-11 Hi-Capa 1911 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol shot hard and averaged 420fps again using .20 gram Airsoft BB's. 

For my accuracy testing all 10 shots placed within about 3 inches and they where fairly well centered left to right but did shoot a little bit high, this could be corrected using the hop-up adjustment to bring the Airsoft BB's down just a little.

I was rather surprised at how loud the KJWorks KP-11 Hi-Capa 1911 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is, it is by far one of the loudest CO2 Pistols I have shot to date other than the Umarex Desert Eagle Pellet Pistol. The KJWorks KP-11 Hi-Capa 1911 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol also has a lot of blowback kick which makes it a lot of fun to shoot. Don't expect a lot of shots per CO2 since it uses a lot of CO2 per shot but in my books it is worth it for the added blowback recoil.

The KJWorks KP-11 Hi-Capa 1911 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol may shoot a little bit hot for indoor Airsoft close quarters games but if you plan to use it outdoors at longer ranges it would definitely send Airsoft BB's out to further away targets. You could also pickup a Green Gas Magazine to lower the FPS about 50fps or so which would calm the KJWorks KP-11 down enough for indoor shooting.

VFC FN Herstal FNX45 Tactical GBB Airsoft Pistol Table Top Review

Type: Airsoft Gas Blowback Pistol.
Manufacturer: Cybergun - VFC.
Model: FN Herstal FNX45 Tactical
Materials: Metal and Polymer.
Weight: 2.09 pounds (950 grams).
Barrel: 4 inches, metal non-rifled.
Propulsion: GBB - Green Gas or Propane.
Action: Semi auto, single & double action with full blowback.
Ammunition Type: 6mm plastic Airsoft BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 25 round full size drop out metal magazine.
FPS: 366+ with extended barrel.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the VFC FN Herstal FNX45 Tactical GBB Airsoft Pistol is surprisingly light in single action mode, there is also minimal takeup. When shooting in double action the trigger pull length is much longer and heavier and has a bit of a stickiness too it but since this is a blowback pistol most of your shooting will be in single action mode where the trigger feels great!

Accuracy: I haven't done a dedicated Field Test Shooting Video yet for the VFC FN Herstal FNX45 Tactical GBB Airsoft Pistol but I did get the chance to play around with it when I did my I.C.U. 2.0 HD Action Camera review. In terms of power and accuracy it feels pretty good and you can expect to get decent power and accuracy out of it, we will have to wait and see how it performs on paper targets and when tested on the Chrony.

Build Quality: The VFC FN Herstal FNX45 Tactical GBB Airsoft Pistol is well made overall, I have found pretty much all the VFC airguns I have gotten my hands on seem to be well made and very realistic. you will find metal parts where they would be on the real Steel version of this pistol and same goes for plastic parts like the frame in this case. The finish seems to be holding up nicely too for me.

Realism: VFC really seams to pay a lot of attention to every detail of their Airsoft guns and the VFC FN Herstal FNX45 Tactical GBB Airsoft Pistol is no exception. All the mechanical working parts on this Airsoft version work as they would on the real .45 ACP FN Herstal FNX45, even the extractor is a separate part not moulded into the slide like you would find on most Airsoft pistols. You also get Interchangeable Back Straps to accommodate different hand sizes and of course it's fully FN licensed!
Purchase it from: The Replica Airguns Store

Pros:

  • Excellent reproduction of the real steel FN Herstal FNX45 in looks and operation.
  • Very Crisp Firm full blowback operation.
  • Excellent fit and finish.
  • Everything is Ambidextrous so great for lefties too.
  • High Rise sighs suitable for the addition of a moc suppressor.
  • Comes with two interchangeable internal barrel lengths.
  • Fully field strip-able.
  • Fully FN Herstal Licensed.

Cons:

  • Comes with a red tip.
  • Magazine is kind of shiny
  • My serial number plate fell off while shooting it so make sure yours is on tight.

Comments:
Like I have mentioned throughout this review, VFC not only makes super realistic Airsoft guns, they also make a really high quality product. The VFC FN Herstal FNX45 Tactical GBB Airsoft Pistol is another example of this and offers everything you would hope to expect in an Airsoft Replica! The only down side is the orange tip  but that can be sorted out easy enough after you get it. It's definitely not a small gun so keep that in mind when deciding on buying it, overall the VFC FN Herstal FNX45 Tactical GBB Airsoft Pistol is a really nice Airsoft gun at a reasonable price point.

KJWorks KP-11 Hi-Capa 1911 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol Table Top Review

Type: Blowback Airsoft Pistol.
Manufacturer: KJWORKS.
Model: KP-11 M1911 Hi-Capa
Materials: Metal slide with Polymer frame.
Weight: 2 pounds (930 grams).
Barrel: Metal non-rifled smooth bore.
Propulsion: 12 gram CO2.
Action: Blowback, Single action only.
Ammunition Type: 6mm plastic Airsoft BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 28 rounds.
FPS: 360+ fps.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the KJWorks KP-11 1911 is very good since it is modeled after a real steel 1911 which makes it short and crisp with a nice light trigger pull. There is a very slight take-up at the very beginning of the pull but once your get past this the release is crisp and predictable. Since it is not a double action trigger you will need to either rack the slide for your first shot or pull the hammer back if you have already chambered a round.

Accuracy: I have not done my actual Field Test Shooting video review for the KJWorks KP-11 M1911 Airsoft Pistol so I do not have any definitive feedback for you but based on my experiences shooting other KJWorks 1911 styled Airsoft CO2 Pistols I expect it to have great blowback action recoil, a nice trigger and good overall FPS and accuracy. In terms of reliability, KJWorks pistols are solid in this department.

Build Quality: As expected, the KJWorks KP-11 Hi-Capa 1911 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol build quality is exactly like all the other KJWorks Airsoft guns I've tested so far, Build quality for the price point is top notch with tolerances between the moving parts like the slide and frame are extremely tight showing excellent workmanship and machining from KJWorks. The finish is always a step above other similar styled Airsoft and BB guns, youn really don't have to worry about the finish coming of as easy.

Realism: The KJWorks CO2 KP-11 Hi-Capa 1911 Blowback Airsoft Pistol copies the real steel very popular even today Colt 1911 45 caliber pistol, it can be field stripped very similarly to a real 1911 Semi Auto pistol and all parts function virtually the same including a working safety, grip safety, slide catch-release, magazine release and hammer. This Hi-Capa version has a more tactical look with a wider frame for what would be a double stack hi capacity styled magazine.

Available in the: Replica Airguns Store

Pros:  

  • Has really good weight but not too heavy since it has a polymer frame..
  • Expect to have typical KJWorks crisp and firm full blowback operation.
  • Excellent fit and finish. I like the mat textured finish which looks to bed super durable.
  • Nice bright white dot sights, really easy to see.
  • I like the look of the tactical hammer and trigger.
  • Nice high capacity magazine with a little extra zing for the CO2 Mag.
  • Fully field strip-able.

Cons:  

  • Is not really setup up for left handers with no real ambidextrous components.
  • CO2 magazine is long to accommodate the 12 gram CO2.
  • Grips may be a bit thick for smaller hands.

Comments:
I love 1911 pistols and enjoy shooting them, there is something about how they feel in the hand that is different form most other pistols. They always feel so solid. The KJWorks Airsoft versions capture that feeling exactly and again the little bit more you may pay for a KJWorks 1911 over some other lesser quality Full blowback 1911's is worth the cost in my books. This Hi-Capa 1911 version with it's tactical look and finish would make a great game player for sure!

Umarex Beretta Desert Storm and Daisy Powerline 5502 Preview Video

First off I want to point out that both of these guns I have already reviewed in slightly different cosmetic versions. The Umarex Beretta M92 A1 Desert Storm is essentially the same gun as the Umarex Beretta Mod. 92 A1 Blowback CO2 BB Pistol but with a distressed aged look and the Commemorative Desert Storm licensing on it. Similarly the Daisy Powerline Tactical 5502 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is based on the chrome framed Daisy Powerline 5501 but the Daisy Powerline 5502 comes with a sight rail and compensator.

Check out my other reviews for the Daisy Powerline 5501 and Umarex Mod. 92 A1.

In this video I show you around both the Umarex Beretta M92 A1 Desert Storm and Daisy Powerline Tactical 5502 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol and compare them to their significant similar versions. I talk a bit about specifications but this is a preview video so I don't go into full details. I hope to add some follow up reviews especially a comparison shooting video between the Daisy Powerline Tactical 5502 and Daisy Powerline 5501 since there is a barrel length difference that may give the Powerline 5502 an FPS performance advantage.

I will leave you now with some specifications for both guns.
