Comments: This is an excellent all-metal replica of the Colt 1911A1 made by Umarex in Germany with trademarks licensed from Colt. It includes a functional grip safety and thumb safety. The thumb safety and slide release are easy to operate with one hand. This gun has a great SA and DA trigger. Accuracy is very good.

Pyramyd  Air Report on the Colt 1911A1.

Performance: Measurements were made on 2/17/07 at a temperature of 65 F and 14' elevation. A ten shot string was fired from a bench rest at 15' using H&N Finale Match (pistol) pellets (7.3 gr). The highest velocity measured was 433 fps, the lowest was 378 fps (average of the 10-shot string was 403 fps). A six shot string fired with open sights grouped at 0.49".

Right Profile: The plastic/rubber grips that came with this gun were replaced with Colt/Umarex wood grips. The grip safety must be depressed in order for the gun to fire.

Loading Pellets: Pressing down on what looks like the slide release lever causes the front part of the slide to open so that pellets can be loaded. The Colt 1911A1 uses the same 8-shot metal cylinder as most of the other models in the Umarex line. The cylinder loads with the index ratchet teeth facing the rear of the gun.
Loading CO2: Pressing what looks like the magazine release actually pushes the right-side grip panel off the gun so that the CO2 cylinder can be loaded.
