Cybergun add an affordable Cybergun Colt 1911 Rail CO2 GBB Pistol, released in 2016. You’ll find all the correct markings as Cybergun is the license holder for Colt.
The 1911 platform is popular and common that its usage is well known and practiced by many players and easy to find holsters for and the pistol is all metal for great weight and feel. This replica is well put together and can compete with a lot of GBB pistols on the market to date, and all the control latches and such are crisp and secure.
The 16+1 round magazine feeds 6mm BBs and takes a 12g CO2 capsule for power; the capsule gives the weapon a VERY hard and loud crack when firing, a strong cycle action and clocks 0.2g BBs at 350 FPS. Adjustable hop-up gives distance!
The slide catch is functional and locks the slide when the weapon fires empty; the magazine release, trigger, slide safety and grip safety are all properly function just like other replica 1911s and indeed the real thing as well. And the most amazing part is that Cybergun replica is able to fit a 12g CO2 powerlet completely inside this single stack grip with NO PROTRUSION in the form of an extended magazine. They were able to maintain the flush magazine base with the grip, something we’ve seen a lot of GBB pistols do these days.
An all metal pistol that cycles very hard, shoots well and handles great is a steal at a fraction of the cost of high end replicas. For those of you living in countries where green gas is hard to get or is banned (e.g. Sweden and Finland), then this gun is good news since it uses CO2 and won’t be a problem! The high compression also means that it works well in cooler temperatures!
