Type: Airsoft pistol.
Model: Model 1911 All Metal.
Materials: Mostly metal build.
Weight: 2.4 pounds.
Barrel: 5.2 inches, non-rifled.
Propulsion: CO2 x1.
Action: Semi auto non-blowback, double action only.
Ammunition Type: Airsoft plastic 6mm.
Magazine Capacity: 15 rounds
FPS: ? (1.6 Joules)
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the KWC Model 1911 All Metal Non-Blowback CO2 Airsoft Pistol was about medium to hard but I have definitely experienced heavier trigger pulls on many double action only Airguns. It is nice that the trigger has the look of a 1911 and not your typical lever styled trigger. I did find the trigger to be very usable and the release point is smooth and fairly predictable.
Accuracy: I have yet to perform my field test shooting component for the KWC Model 1911 All Metal Non-Blowback CO2 Airsoft Pistol, however I have reviewed the same gun in 4.5mm Steel BB Cybergun version and here is what I had to say about that the Steel BB version: "Accuracy was decent but not outstanding, I got around a 2.5 inch grouping from a 20 foot away free standing position, shooting just to the left and high on the target. I did find that I was able to zone in a bit better with the Cybergun GSR 1911 as I got used to the trigger. I also put the Cybergun Sig Sauer GSR through my Chrony Chronograph and got very close the manufacturers 397 claimed feet per second, actually starting off well above it and settling down to around the 370 FPS mark. My 8 shot average on a new CO2 was actually 422 FPS."
Build Quality: The build quality for the KWC Model 1911 is very good, this is an almost all metal Airsoft gun with a few exceptions like the hammer, trigger. magazine release, slide catch and grip safety. Pretty much everything else is metal including the slide, frame, magazine, and even the grips. The finish is very good and since there is lots of metal with minimal moving parts and less to go wrong, this should make for a very reliable pistol.
Realism: The KWC Model 1911 CO2 Airsoft Pistol is very close to the look, weight, and feel of the real steal Sig-Arms 1911 GSR! Even the 1911 style trigger was replicated as best as it could be given it being double action only. It would have been nice to have a single action trigger and a working slide to finish off the illusion but overall the GSR is a really nice copy of the real steel Sig Sauer GSR Sig-Arms 1911 firearm.

My YouTube Videos for the KWC Model 1911 CO2 Airsoft Pistol:
I thought I would post this video of my recent Victoria Cup Men's Physique Fitness Contest for my Airgun fans that are also interested in what I am doing over on my fitness related YouTube Channel and Website GetFitOver40.com.
Don't worry - More Airgun videos coming next week when I get back from my trip.
This First Person Shooting Clay Pigeons Video with my KJWorks M9A1 and 1911 Airsoft Pistol is to serve two purposes: Number one and really the only reason needed to make a video like this... To get outside on a nice warm summer day and practice some tactile shooting all while recording it in first person so you can come along and enjoy it with me :)
Secondly I wanted to inform everyone that the video uploads will be a bit lighter for the next week or so since I am on what I call a working holiday. I am focusing on a Fitness Contest this weekend along with a Fitness Expo the following weekend, nothing to do with Replica Airguns but it does coincide with my other Website and YouTube channel GetFitOver40.com. The Fitness contest is the Victoria Cup where I will be competing in the Men's Physique (Masters - Over 40) and (Open - All Ages) divisions. The Fitness Expo is called "theFitExpo" and it is in Anaheim California.
So if you want to watch more of my videos then you will have to checkout my other fitness channel for the next week where I will be posting lots of related content on what's going on fitness wise in my life right now.
Type: Blowback Airsoft Pistols.
Model: M9 & M9A1
Materials: Metal slide & frame.
Weight: 2.1 pounds (950 grams).
Barrel: Metal non-rifled smooth bore.
Propulsion: 12 gram CO2.
Action: Blowback, Single and double action.
Ammunition Type: 6mm plastic Airsoft BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 24 rounds.
FPS: 360+ fps.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the KJWorks Beretta M9 & M9A1 is very good in both single and double action. Double action is a bit longer and heavier than when shooting in single action but not heavy by any means. Single action shooting is short, light and crisp as you would expect when shooting a real steel Beretta 92 style pistol.
Accuracy: I have not done my actual Field Test Shooting video review for the KJWorks M9 and M9A1 Airsoft pistols but I did get the chance to make a short preview video where I shot both guns at some clay pigeons setup around 20 feet away. I was able to pop the center out of the clay pigeons no problem and found that even without any practice I was consistently hitting dead center on most shots. I am not sure exactly what the FPS will be but considering both theses versions of the KJWorks M9 & M9A1 have the CO2 mags they should shoot up into the 360+ fps range using .20 gram Airsoft BB's. Blowback operation is strong and the slides cycle full length. Keep posted for my upcoming Field Test Shooting Video for both pistols.
Build Quality: As expected, the KJWorks M9 & M9A1 build quality is just like all the other KJWorks Airsoft guns I've tested so far, excellent the fit and finish is the best in my opinion even when compared to my my 4.5mm steel BB shooters. When using these guns regularly, areas that are painted like the metal friction areas show very light wear which is rarely the case with metal built blowback Airguns. Again the tolerances between the moving parts like the slide and frame are very tight showing excellent workmanship and machining from KJWorks.
Realism: Both the KJWorks M9 & M9A1 are copies of the real steel popular Beretta M9 & M9A1, it is really hard to tell them apart from the real versions. Both the M9 and M9A1 are very similar in design with the M9A1 having some slight cosmetic differences, the biggest being the addition of a tactical rail built into the frame. Both KJWorks Beretta's can be field stripped in the same manor as a real Beretta M9 Semi Auto pistol and all parts function the same.

The KJWorks Full Metal M9 & M9A1 are yet more examples of excellent full blowback Airsoft pistols from KJWorks. They are built to very high standards, are near perfect replicas of the real steel Beretta M9 & M9A1 and performance is also excellent. Yes the price is slightly higher than a similar Airsoft gun from KWC but the quality on the KJWorks is definitely worth the extra cost.
