1911 AirSoft

Thinking about getting an all metal 1911 airsoft for shooting all those pesky empty soda cans in the backyard. Also would be fine for the grandkids and an opportunity to train them in gun safety. Does anybody have one they would recommend?

My grandson had a 1911 airsoft pistol he paid good money for. He loaned it out and it came back broken. Finding replacement parts was almost an effort in futility.

I would recommend you check parts availability prior to what ever model you decide to buy. Airsoft guns don't have the ruggedness of a real weapon.

I have a Wilson Combat air soft similar to this one: https://www.airsoftglobal.com/shop/i...oducts_id=9979

It's fun.

Just curious? Why metal? I have an HK USP and MP5 full auto packed away somewhere.. They run on battery and shoot the yellow plastic pellets. They hurt and Iím guessing cheaper in case kiddies loose interest?

Because 1911s are my favorite platform and I wanted something with a real feel maybe even the same take down procedures. I really like an American made one if possible. Seems like a lot of the others are made in Hong Kong and Taiwan

Here's some, but made in Taiwan.

Ebay Airsoft 1911s

Then, I found this which could be what you want. I can't get a lot of detail because "This item cannot be shipped to my selected location." (California, go figure)

BlackOPS Airsoft from Amazon

A brand you should be familiar with... Umarex.

The Elite Force 1911 A1 Airsoft Pistol is an ultra-realistic all-metal construction. It feels as close to real as is possible in an airsoft pistol. The slide action blowback creates the feeling of shooting an actual firearm. This 1911 pistol has a 14-rd drop free magazine and a 14 mm threaded tip.

Amazon has a bunch of the all-metal 1911 Elite Force in various schemes. Some of them look pretty sharp... even brushed metal slides.
