Trigger Pull: It is what you would expect from a real 1911 single-action automatic pistol. It is very light and short.

Accuracy: Surprisingly good! I got just under a two inch grouping from 20 feet away. I got 8 shots on target in a free standing position and I was only using one hand this time!

Build Quality: Excellent, with almost all metal construction. Good weight and craftsmanship.

Realism: This is as close as you can come to the look, weight, feel, and action of the real 1911 in virtually every way! I'm not sure what more you could ask for? If you do want more then you are going to have to go out and pick your self up a real 45 auto 1911!


  • Extremely realistic replica of an original Colt 1911 A1
  • All metal construction has good weight for a solid feeling gun
  • Functions just like the real steel 1911 45 handgun
  • Firm blowback action adds to shooting realism
  • Field stripping capability
  • True 1911 single-action trigger that is smooth and light to pull
  • Good accuracy
  • Efficient CO2 usage makes for more shots
  • Working grip safety


  • A bit hard to load up BBs
  • No adjustable sights
  • Finish may be hard to color match because gun is more of a brownish black

Comments: I was very impressed with this KWC product. It looks great and functions just like the real steel 1911 in practically every way possible for a replica airgun. I got decent accuracy and very close to the claimed factory FPS. I even got a full 3 magazines worth of shots from one CO2, which is pretty good for an airgun with this kind of blowback and kick to it. If you like the classic Colt 1911 A1 style of pistol and then the KWC Tanfoglio Witness 1911 BB Gun is exactly what you need.

With the popularity of the KWC - Cybergun 1911 Blowback CO2 Pistols and how super realistic they are in so many ways, it is no surprise that people often ask me if they can replace the original grips with grips made for a real 1911.

The short answer is yes you can! You will have to be prepared to remove just a little bit of material from the backside of both grips near the bottom of the handle where there is an area that has been flared out to accommodate the CO2. Not really a big deal, you can use a Dremel for the quick and easy approach or even some sand paper if you don't mind taking a little more time.

In this YouTube Video I demonstrate using grips that fit a real 1911 and show you just exactly where you will need modify them to fit on the KWC and Cybergun CO2 Blowback 1911 pistol series.

This video is a walkthrough Review of the Cybergun -Tanfoglio Witness 1911 CO2 BB Gun. I show off the gun close and take you through many of the features and do a side by side comparison with several of my other 1911 styled air pistols.

This is a very realistic and fun gun to shoot, it would make a great training pistol as just about everything about it works exactly like the real steel! I can't imagine getting any closer to the real 45 auto without actually buying one.

I also do some shooting tests, first through my Chrony Chronograph to see what the actual FPS really is and then I shoot at a target from 20 feet out to get a sense of the accuracy this gun has to offer.

I even find some time to show you the blowback action in slow motion using my high speed Casio camera set to 210 frames per second.
