This government style M1911 from KJW is superb full metal replica of the real handgun that any shooter, collector or reenactor would be proud to own. Boasting both power and accuracy this pistol is arguably one the best 1911 models currently available in its class.

With all of its main components being constructed entirely out of metal this pistol has the heft and balance of the real firearm giving it high marks on realism. The tolerances on this model are exceptionally tight with very little play in-between the slide and the frame allowing it to cycle very smoothly. With the exception of its country of origin, there are no trademarks or warning labels to be found on this model giving the pistol a very clean, sleek appearance. This model features an open ejection port and a locking slide which operates realistically by allowing the slide to be released by either depressing the slide stop or by drawing back slightly on the slide once the pistol has been reloaded. Its grip and thumb safeties are also fully functional so everything about the operation of this pistol is exactly like the real one. The overall mechanics, fit and finish of this model are top notch.

Once you get done going over the outside of the pistol and actually get down to putting a few rounds downrange you’ll find it fires with a thunderous report and kicks like a perturbed mule. It has a very light and crisp trigger which combined with TM style hop-up system puts accuracy dead on even at long ranges. Its adjustable hop up system allows it to be used with a wide range of BB’s making it possible for this pistol to hit ranges equal to most AEG rifles. This pistol can be used with either the CO2 magazine which it comes with or green gas powered KJW 1911 magazines which are available separately.

Overall the KJW M1911 is a top performer in every category and has quickly become one of all time favorite blow back models.

This pistol comes with a multi-tool which the manual shows can be used to pull down and lock the follower of the magazine. DO NOT use this tool with your CO2 magazine as it will not work correctly and can result in damage to the magazine. The tool can be used on gas KJW 1911 magazines which have a smaller base plate but it can not be used on the thicker base plate of the CO2 magazine. Please note that when loading this pistols magazines be careful not to release the spring so that it slams against the top of the magazine. This will crack the lips of the magazine which will not be covered under warranty.

Also, when tightening the CO2 cap please make sure the threads are properly aligned before tightening. Warranty will not cover replacement of the magazine if you cross thread the cap and ruin the magazines threads.

WARNING: Due to inconsistent sizing in other co2 cartridges we strongly advise the use of the co2 cartridges listed below in the recommended items. Problems experienced with other cartridges can or may include failure to fully seat, puncture and or leaking from the mag. Any problems associated with the use of said co2 are not the fault of Shorty USA.

    5 out of 5- Happy Birthday , Colt Govt. 1911 A1

    I bought this gun about 3 years ago. I now have more air guns of all types than a healthy man should. It's an addiction, believe me. This is still my favorite.
    Sounds like thunder, strikes like lightning and kicks like a mule. Authentic in every aspect except no trades (a good thing imho) and the stub that projects from the bottom of the( full metal dropout )magazine to accommodate the CO2 cartridge (Pretend it's a Hi-cappa ). Weight, balance, heft, point-ability and the way it feels in the hand . Holds @ 20 rounds and you should get @ 50 shots per cartridge. Fully field strip-able, slide type trigger, thumb and grip safeties, hop-up for accuracy, rugged and dependable like its 100 year old real steel grand daddy make this a 5 for 5.
    Track down a repro WW2 holster. This baby deserves one.

    5 out of 5- KJW CO2 1911

    I purchased this pistol off of shorty and when it came I was surprised how heavy it was. The feel was spectacular, and I'm changing from being an M9 type of guy to a M1911 guy. One thing I really like is the fact that I can load and chamber a round, and then drop the mag, let the hammer down, and re-insert the mag, and place in a holster for safe but loaded carry. As well, as it makes my WE M9 look like an EBB pistol. No joke whatsoever. This thing kicks! Another great thing is that to adjust the Hop-Up, all you have to do is remove the slide, and there's a dial with clear markings saying which way gives move hop up, which makes our lives a whole lot easier.

    *Velocity (350FPS with .2's)
    *Mag Capacity
    *Gas Efficient
    *Has an easily adjusted Hop-Up

    *The safety cannot be put on when the hammer is down (just my personal opinion)
    *Made In Taiwan and KJ Works are stamped in to the frame, but there are no real trades :(
    *Grips are a little plastic feeling, but I believe you may be able to swap them with real steel ones

    5 out of 5- The pride and joy of my life.

    I personally love the M1911 over any other hand gun, and this gun looks and feels just like it's real steel counterpart, making this a must for any M1911 lover. It has outstanding range(~50yds), pleasuring accuracy(I can hit bottle caps consistantly at 10yds, beer bottles at 20, and milk gallons at 40), and cut-throat power. The kick is an amazing feeling to have in an airsoft gun and her battle cry is enough to ward off anyone who shall attempt to violate us with BB's.
    -it's a full-metal, blow-back, high-powered, dead-accurate, dadgummed M1911! where can you go wrong??
    -runs on co2 (my preference) AND for gas preferrers, it also has gas mags sold seperately.
    -I can get about two and a half reloads out of one cartridge of co2.
    -like I said... IT'S A M1911
    C-c-c..cons... :(
    -really I think it was my own fault for maybe too many hours of constant shooting, or maybe being too harsh on the trigger.. I don't know, but the gun is fine, she's great. But my mag started rapidly and constantly leaking co2 out of the top to the extent that Icould only get a couple shots of, if any, before the co2 was out.
    -extra mags are expensive, but still worth every penny of it.
