Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Colt Government 1911 A1 is extremely nice in both single and double action mode. The single action has the lightest pull, making it a joy to shoot at targets.

Accuracy: I shot this air gun at a target from 20 feet away in a free standing position, and it performed excellent. I got about a one inch grouping just a little bit high of the target's center. The sights can be adjusted for windage if you are shooting a tad bit to the left or right. My Chrony testing with an eight shot had an average result of 383 FPS.

Build Quality: This is an almost all metal air gun with a great fit and finish and a nice hefty 2.5 pound weight to it. It's made in Germany, what more do I need to say? The only plastic parts are the grips which almost feel like a mix between rubber and plastic. All the mechanical parts operation are as smooth as butter.

Realism: The Umarex Colt Government 1911 A1 is a licensed replica of the real Government Colt 1911 A1 45 auto pistol. It looks pretty much bang on with the exception of the slight break in the slide where the rotary magazine is accessible.


  • Almost all metal construction - good weight and very solid feeling gun at 2.5 pounds!
  • Comes in a nice hard-shell case
  • Adjustable rear sight for windage
  • Double and single action, very smooth and light
  • Accurate trigger design and working back-strap safety
  • Very good accuracy, decent FPS for a pellet shooter and good usage of CO2


  • German made gun is pricy
  • Sights are a bit hard to see on darker backgrounds
  • The engravings on my airgun were a bit hard to see

Comments: The Umarex Colt Government 1911 A1 is a pleasure to own and shoot. You can really tell this is a quality gun from how smoothly it operates and the confidence it gives you even when just holding it in your hands. This well-made airgun has been around since the late 90's and even today it still holds its own. Despite not have a working blowback design or drop out magazine, this is a top notch airgun that succeeds in shooting and enjoying for years to come.

This is a table top review of the Umarex Colt Government 1911 A1 CO2 .177 caliber pellet pistol in the Nickel finished version. I show you around the gun and walk you through its basic operation and handling. I have included some video of a target example showing you an 8 round grouping I got from 20 feet out with this fine pistol. I also put the pellet shooter on the Chony Chronograph to find out its real world feet per second rating. The Umarex Colt Government is almost all metal and is extremely well made.

The Umarex Colt Government 1911 A1 is very well made and finished and makes an excellent replica of the real Government 1911 45 auto Colt firearm. It has great feel in both single and double action making it very easy to shoot on target.
