Following in the shadows of the EF 1911A1, we were eager to see if the much anticipated tactical variant of the now famous CO2 pistol measured up to its predecessor. After spending a few hours with the all new EF 1911 TAC, we are happy to report that this new edition to the Elite Force family is ranks right up their with its older brother.
Upon taking it out of the box for the first time I was impressed with how solid this pistol felt. It looks awesome too, with laser engraved logos on its slide and its tactical two-tone color scheme, it definitely stands out from the traditional 1911s. Just like its predecessor, this gun comes from Umarex USA under their Elite Force brand, ensuring it is the high quality that we have all known to come and love. The TAC comes equipped with ambidextrous thumb safeties which function better than any other pistol we have seen to date, a railed frame, combat sites, skeleton trigger and custom lower frame finished in DEB. This pistol also has a 14mm CCW threaded muzzle for those of you who love mock pistol suppressors.
Alright, so enough of the externals. How does it shoot? On the chrono it clocks in at 330 fps w/ .2g BBs making it ideal for CQB play. On the firing line however it was consistently hitting targets out to 130 feet down range with .28g BBs even with a descent cross wind blowing.
Again Umarex have created a winner in the Elite Force 1911 TAC, everything from performance to functionality, this 1911 exceeds all expectations.
