Umarex Colt 1911.
There are two aspects to this gun, as there are to the entire range of Umarex CO2 pistols. They are all replica's of actual firearms, and they also operate as gas-powered air-pistols.
As a replica of a Colt 1911, this gun is modestly satisfactory. It is made of metal, but it's not steel or genuine firearm quality alloy and it's finish is therefore not blued. The metal is something referred to by another reviewer, politely, as "Spelter" and in rather less repeatable... (read more)

Over all a good gun and I got it at a good price. I am used to Crosman guns and have a 2240 I built up and hot rodded
I got this one for plinking and can busting. The 2240 is for target shooting and hunting small varmints like mice and starlings. I have not had it long enough to say about longevity yet or what pellet is best in it. I do like the grips as there real rubber like on my powder burner. I find this is a great gun to train new shooters with before I release them on my powder... (read more)

I bought the blued 1911A1 supposedly new from a reputable gun auction!
In fact it is painted black, presumably because the material it is made from can't be blued.
Still it is a good coating that Umarex have put on it and it looks the real deal.....
The gun feels good and has a nice heft to it, it's easy to load with both the mags and Co2 cartridges.
However the fps leaves a lot to be desired, this is because as with nearly all semi auto Co2 guns with the revolver type of pellet feed the... (read more)

Have had mine for about 2 years. I use it in training since it looks and weighs about the same as a real .45.
A couple points to watch for:
1. Releasing the slide so it goes forward (not backwards like the real .45) means the cylinder will come flying out quickly. Be sure to keep an eye on it and you'll be on the floor looking.
2. The grip safety does NOT work. It's a fake. If the gun is loaded and somebody touches the trigger, it will discharge even if the grip safety is not pushed... (read more)

I have reason to believe people are paying large amounts of cash for these guns!!! I know a german/english website that stocks these guns from just £98.00!!!! That is for the black/black model. to get the wooden grips it is just £102.00!! as for the silver gun with sliding lever trigger (read above) I didn't look at the price but believe me, you could save enought to buy all necesary CO2 capsules and large amounts of ammo for the cash you save!! Also the website sells the 11mm... (read more)

Have the Walther CP99 and Colt 1911 A1, two different guns with different characteristics. The Colt is my favorite. Single-action trigger is crisp and after a few firings one can tell where the break-off is. Double action is a longer pull, but not nearly as long as the CP99. Nice to be able to cock the hammer to go to single action, versus having to pull back a slide. The main dislike I have is the inability to adjust the sight elevation without buying or customizing your own set. Shop... (read more)

I have more of a question than a review. I just bought a 1911 and it's real good except it's weak. It only shoots between 275 and 315 fps when it claims to shoot at 400. I was wondering if there is any way to upgrade it to a higher fps. If so, how? (read more)

The Uramex/Daisy/colt Colt Govn't 1911A1 is really cool. I think its the best replica gun one could have. It is realistic and has nice specifications. Shoots accurately and a lot of accessories to have. Get a red dot sight and you feel like you have a real advanced gun.
oh... and its a Colt! (read more)

I bought the Uramex/Daisy/colt Colt Govn't 1911A1 yesterday after spending quite a while considering what to buy. Now I have, I think I made the right decision. It bears such a likeness to its derivative that you could show it to someone and brag that you got it smuggled from the States and they'd be none-the-wiser! Only by looking down the barrel (when uncharged and unloaded, obviously) could you see that it's a CO2 copy, and a brilliant one, at that!
It's made with real gun metal which... (read more)

I have three of these guns and I enjoy shooting them when they function correctly. When these first came out they looked like the best but time has shown some problems. The slide does not function with each shot, and the hammer is functional, it strikes the valve to fire the gun. The gun has a hammer bar safety and will not fire if dropped on the hammer even with the safety off. The velocity of all the Umarex guns is about 390 fps and the accuracy is about 1 1/4 inches at 30 feet. The... (read more)

After i bought mine new, i was really happy until i shot it, i liked how quiet it was but it had no power i would shot a soda can from 5 yards away and it would put a little dent in it, i was trying to shot a board one day that was about 15 yards away from me the pellet wouldnt even come close to the bird. i was shooting at my friend one day ( dont ever try that!) and he was able to catch the pellets! i dont no if i got a lemon or some but i no that i will never own this gun ever again...

The Uramex/Daisy/colt Colt Govn't 1911A1 C02 Pistol seems a bit less powerful than the 6" S&W due to the 5" barrel, but the power is normal to 4 or 5" barrels.
-Will shoot way up , due to the standard sights. Since these are not adjustable for elevation , it will need some getting used-to before a reasonable grouping can be obtained. A taller front sight could solve this. Adjustable sight kits usually include the rear unit as well.
-Handles beautifully in the hand, not too heavy , very... (read more)

Only fair to state that this review is based on a rather well used second hand model. The odd pellet jams may be down to a worn magazine cycling catch. This is an all black model, at at guess I should think at least two or maybe even three years with a lot of shots going through it and I am still impressed with it. Very impressed. Accurate, great feel and brilliant build quality. I fitted it with a red dot sight and the accuracy is outstanding. I will be buying a new version of this gun... (read more)

Over all this is a pretty good pistol, I got it a few month, maybe the weight of the gun, I never miss a coke can in 20 feet, this gun can shoot like 60-80 shot in one co2, my experience is after 60 shot, power is clearly decreasing, but it can still punch through 2 layer of card board. The bad part on this gun is only 8 shot, it's a pain reloading the gun without a reloader, trigger is harder to fire in double action, you need to pull it more to the back than in single action. Overall, this... (read more)
