Colt M1911A1 Spring Airsoft Pistol – with Metal Slide

This is one of the best value airsoft pistols and of course, judging on its price, this is definitely aimed at the beginners. Although aimed at beginners, this pistol is clearly not to be underestimated.

Spring powered, this gun is capable of shooting quite accurately even though there is the addition of grain size; 0.23 g BBs. To add to the accuracy, a tactical under rail has been added and it is adapted to almost all flashlights / lasers. How does it stack up against the best airsoft 1911 pistols? Let’s review.

Wrapped with a nice full metal-slide reinforces the impression of luxury without adding too much weight to the gun as a whole. Light weight is also supported by the use of plastic, especially on the bottom of the gun.

Although using plastic, the texture of plastic used is quite hard, indicating that it is made in premium quality. Of course, doubting the quality of the COLT M1911A1 is the last thing any airsoft gun loves to do because this cheap pistol is sold in a special license by Colt as a monumental product for the 100th Anniversary Edition, 1911-2011.

Of course there is always cons on every product is no exception Colt products. The COLT M1911A1 has a magazine made of plastic offering 12 rounds, making it perfect for a quick shoot up, though you’ll need to buy a separate speed BB reloader or another Colt magazine.

One other drawback is that this airsoft pistol does not accommodate backup magazines, making it difficult if we are engaged in “war.” Of course these difficulties seem to be coupled with the necessity to cock it every time you shoot since it is a spring gun, as if you were in an era of ancient America.


Coming in for less than 30 bucks, this is a great quality gun, a step up from the typical airsoft pistol from a brand name that you can trust. It’s only drawback is the short range, though it’s very accurate and definitely worth the money. Alongside an AEG Rifle or a CO2 rifle, you’ll the perfect weaponry for an airsoft skirmish!
