Materials: Metal slide and polymer frame
Weight: 1.8 pounds

Ammunition Type: 4.5mm BBs
Ammunition Capacity: 20 round magazine

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the ASG STI Duty One 1911 is nice and light due to its true blowback operation that cocks the hammer back with each shot taken. The pull is rather long but nothing really happens until you get right to the end and then there is just a slight bit of pressure and a quick release.

Accuracy: I shot the STI Duty One 1911 air gun at a target from 20 feet away in a free standing position, and it performed well getting a 1.5 to 2 inch grouping right in the center of the target. The rear sight is adjustable for windage which is always nice to have just in case you are shooting a bit to the left or right. For me there was no need to adjust the sights. My Chrony testing with an eight shot averaged result was 373 fps - very decent for a blowback pistol!

Build Quality: ASG did an awesome job designing and making the STI Duty One 1911 Blowback BB gun. They didn't really compromise on anything other than the polymer frame! With that said all that important parts like the Slide, Slide Catch, Safety, Mag Release, Hammer, Barrel and Magazine are all metal. The fit and finish as with all the ASG air guns is excellent!

Realism: The ASG STI Duty One 1911 Blowback is a really close replica to the real steel STI 1911. The only real giveaway is the trigger design as a true 1911 trigger is not your typical lever type. Even with the different type of trigger the STI Duty One is a very good replica complete with all the STI licensing and trademarks.

Pros:

  • Realistic true blowback action.
  • Adjustable rear sight for windage.
  • True single action blowback gun.
  • Excellent quality control. Very well made, fit and finish is excellent
  • Good power, accuracy, and CO2 efficiency for a blowback gun.
  • Metal dropout magazine.
  • Good STI Replica.
  • Extremely enjoyable gun to shoot!

Cons:

  • Trigger is not true to the real 1911 style.
  • Has a polymer frame, not metal.
  • I found the CO2 kind of hard to get out.

Comments: I am quickly realizing that ASG is a company that makes not only some really nice air pistols, but also ones with excellent quality control and design. The STI Duty One 1911 Blowback CO2 BB gun is no exception to this and I found it a blast to shoot because it felt great in the hand, shot hard and on target, performed flawlessly and I was able to get a lot of shots from a CO2 even with the blowback and high fps for a blowback shooter. If you're a 1911 fan or you simply like full size guns that mean business, then take a look at the ASG STI Duty One 1911 Blowback CO2 BB pistol. If I had to pick one BB shooter to take out for a day of plinking, this would probably be the one!

This video is a walkthrough review of the ASG STI Duty One 1911 Blowback CO2 BB Pistol. I show off the gun close up from all angles and point out the metal and polymer components and the excellent quality and features this airgun offers . I also show you a target that I did an 8 shot accuracy test from 20 feet out in a free standing position along with the results of my Chronograph 8 shot test. - very impressive!

This is a very realistic and fun full sized air gun to shoot, it offers just about everything you can ask from a replica airgun including, true blowback action, nice high fps, decent CO2 usage, accuracy and excellent quality. If I had to pick one gun to take out for a day of plinking, this would probably be the one!
