Our take: The all-new G&G Xtreme 45 FULL METAL CO2 Blowback M1911 semi-automatic high-powered pistol is one of the BEST pistols on the market right now, bar none, due to the fact that it shoots at over 500 FPS AND it features blowback action. Typically, it's one or the other (400+ FPS of power or blowback), not both. And hence, the G&G Xtreme 45 is in and of itself an engineering marvel.
Featuring FULL METAL construction, the pistol also features an adjustable hop-up and an integrated railed frame located on the underside of the barrel (for flashlight or laser accessorizing). Further,the gun features an metal adjustable rear sight and single-sided thumb and grip safeties, as well as a single-stacked 16 round magazine.
Differing from similar blow backs, the slide on the G&G Metal Extreme 45traverses approximately only an inch, all in order to reset the hammer,and this lack of full slide movement served during test-firing to not only increase target acquisition between rounds, but also to improve accuracy, as it lends itself to a more stable gun platform. This pistol is heavy, durable and efficient, with a satisfying ?mock blow-back? kick and even more - satisfying power.
Maxing out at a whopping 521 FPS with 0.20g seamless BBs at our chrono station, this CO2 pistol is recommended for TARGET-shooting use only, as it is extremely powerful. With a full metal slide and barrel, this CO2 semi-automatic airsoft pistol is built like a tank. It feels every bit as solid as it looks, and is HEAVY, even in comparison to all the other full metal pistols currently on the market.
A working hammer, movable full metal slide, and G&G's easy CO2 loading system make this pistol remarkably easy to use and shoot. With its unmistakably classic M1911 hand grip and a classic black finish, it just also happens to be one of the most handsome M1911 replicas you'll find on the market today.
