The Sig Sauer GSR
1911 is one in a series of CO2-powered
replicas made in Taiwan by KWC and distributed
world-wide by Cybergun (France). The U.S. importer is Palco
Sports. The trademarks on this gun are officially licensed from
Sigarms. The GSR 1911 is, itself, a modified copy
of the venerable Colt 1911. This all metal replica (even the
grip panels are metal) is a good reproduction of the details from the
original firearm, including the Weaver-style accessory rail under the dust cover.
The only functional parts on the GSR 1911 are the trigger, magazine release,
and thumb safety.
All the other replica parts (slide, grip safety, sights,
slide lock) are
non-functional and molded into the frame as a single unit. The trigger has a
long hard pull with no distinct breaking point. This very heavy
and well-built gun has
an authentic feel and decent accuracy for a
smooth-bore BB gun.
