Colt M45A1 CQBP (Tan)
The Colt M45 is a descendant of the humble 1911, but improved! In no small part by the Tan paint job!
Designed for the Marine Corps, the M45A1 Close-Quarter Battle Pistol, this piece features some modern improvements; ambidextrous safety, tactical sights, 20mm accessory rail (flashlights or lasers etc), diamond back grips, straight hammer spring housing, rounded hammer, and serrations in the slide for easier manipulation.
In practical terms for this airsoft replica, it is a 1911 manufactured by KWC with faithfully reproduced trademarks from Colt (under exclusive license from Cybergun) which really adds to the authenticity of the piece. The tan finish is smooth, matte, and really seals the deal! As with all the KWC 1911 series (particularly the Rail Gun editions), the Colt M45 is weighty and solid making it feel like a gun should feel!
Powered by Co2, the magazine holds 1x disposable 12g cannister, and 17 BB's. Each cannister lasts approximately 50 shots, and provides strong blowback (imitation of recoil). As you'd expect, there are a couple of safety features on this model. First & foremost, without the magazine the gun can NOT fire. Then you have the single-action trigger; unless the hammer is cocked it cannot fire. Then when the hammer is back, you have a beaver tail safety; you have to press it in to fire i.e. a natural grip on the pistol - just to stop you from shooting yourself in the foot when holstered! Finally there is the safety catch itself; when the hammer is back the safety clicks up and prevents the trigger from working.
Easily one of the most practical sidearms for skirmishing, and a great piece for plinking, the Colt M45 is simple to use! Adjusting the hop up requires basic disassembly, and you're fine-tuned in minutes!
